Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 7 vs IND (12 / 9 / 106 / 1 rec)
The Texans finally had to turn to DeAndre Hopkins, who had his best day receving since week one. After Will Fuller went down, the Texans offense starting pumping through Hopkins. Hopkins had nine receptions and was able to get a four-yard touchdown pass reception late in the game. Hopkins beat his man running a nice route getting back to the inside, where he was standing by himself in the end zone. Hopkins remains the Texans' top option in the passing game, and when the ball comes his way, he is going to make plays.
2019 Week 6 vs KC (12 / 9 / 55 / 0 rec)
The touchdown numbers are slow for Hopkins, but he had his opportunity on Sunday. Late in the game, Watson made a great read to get Hopkins the football near the goal line, but he dropped a sure touchdown right in his hands. Hopkins had a case of the drops in week one and had this crucial on versus the Chiefs. Hopkins had nine receptions on the day, and all of his work was done on underneath routes with the Chiefs trying to prevent the deep throws. Hopkins' best reception came on a short pass, which saw him break two tackles for an 18-yard gain.
2019 Week 5 vs ATL (8 / 7 / 88 / 0 rec)
With all of the offense going around the field, Deandre Hopkins did not get into the end zone but he was still able to rack up receptions and yards during the game. Hopkins longest reception came on a 29-yard catch and run that saw him bounce off two defenders with him taking off up the middle of the field. With others giving the vertical presence, Hopkins was able to work underneath routes and and nickel and dime through the Falcons defense.
2019 Week 4 vs CAR (8 / 5 / 41 / 0 rec)
There are not enough chances headed DeAndre Hopkins way in the passing game, and it is due to Deshaun Watson not giving him opportunities. Only targeted eight times, Hopkins is doing most of his work underneath due to the coverage the Panthers were playing. Hopkins was missed on a potential big gain, but Watson missed him by overthrowing him. Hopkins was asked to throw a pass in the red zone that resulted in an interception intended for Carlos Hyde a similar play they ran the season before against the Buffalo Bills. Hopkins time will come, but his success is predicated on Watson seeing the field properly.
2019 Week 3 vs LAC (7 / 6 / 67 / 0 rec)
It was another slow but productive day for DeAndre Hopkins who has been doing most of his work in underneath routes. Defenses are working hard to get Watson to go to other options in the passing game and it is working early to start the season. Hopkins best reception came with him in the slot and he beat his man in press coverage to get to the middle of the field for a 34-yard catch and run. Hopkins remains the Texans best option in the passing game and his ability to make big plays can happen whenever he touches the football.
2019 Week 2 vs JAX (8 / 5 / 40 / 0 rec)
Hopkins ran into his arch-nemesis in Jalen Ramsey, who has had the most success covering him over the years. Hopkins had two receptions over 10 yards for 14 and 13 yards. He did have one target over 20+ yards, but it was not close to being completed. Hipkins did most of his work underneath against Ramsey but it, like most of the Texans skill players, a slow day at the office.
2019 Week 1 vs NO (13 / 8 / 111 / 2 rec)
It should have been a bigger day than what it was for Deandre Hopkins. Hopkins dropped three passes in the first half but woke up in the second half looking like the Hopkins many know. Catching touchdown passes for 2 yards and 16 yards, Hopkins continues to do his work when asked. His best reception came on a pass late in the 4th quarter down the left side line for 38-yards to set up a touchdown pass the next play.
