Texans | DeAndre Hopkins snaps TD drought

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 18:13:55 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted three receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins re-discovered the end zone for the first time since Week 5, snapping a six-game touchdown drought. He has three or more catches in each of his past eight outings, but he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2. Still, he remains a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 14 for his high ceiling.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins totals 70 yards

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 22:05:16 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 70 yards on 10 targets in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins hasn't found the end zone in six games dating back to Week 5 in Minnesota, but the yardage total was his most since Week 6 and his third-highest total of the season. He has settled into more of a WR2 role for fantasy owners down the stretch, although he faces a favorable matchup in Week 13 against a beleaguered Green Bay pass defense.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins robbed of TD

Mon, 21 Nov 2016 21:50:51 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 58 yards on six targets in the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He appeared to have a long touchdown in the first quarter, but a blown call on a sideline catch cost him what would have been a 60-yard touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners haven't had much production from Hopkins this season, and they really needed that long scoring play. He should be treated more as a WR2 heading into Week 12 against the San Diego Chargers.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins again disappoints

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 15:12:32 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 48 yards and did not score in a Week 10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Even with all of the terrible quarterback play Hopkins has endured in his career, he still mustered to post big fantasy points. That's not the case with Brock Osweiler in charge of the offense. The Texans visit the Oakland Raiders in Week 11.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins in line for big stats

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 21:24:25 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will meet the Detroit Lions in Week 8 at home. The Lions are allowing 273.0 yards per game over seven games, and they have given up 18 pass touchdowns which is tied for most in the NFL. The Lions have also given up 22 or more pass plays of 20 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has had rather erratic production this season, something fantasy owners grabbing him in the first round were certainly not banking on seeing. Hopkins has just one score over the past five games, and he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2. However, you likely spent a high draft pick on him and you need to keep rolling with Nuke despite some shaky quarterback play costing the receiver.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins does very little

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 21:36:13 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for a team-high 36 yards in the Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Oct. 24. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has been a huge disappointment for fantasy owners, and he is Brock Osweiler just haven't built a good rapport. Nuke should not be dropped, and trading him would be a mistake since his fantasy value is at its nadir. Hang in there and hope the duo can jell sooner rather than later.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins ready to play

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 13:19:18 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has been targeted at least eight times in five of the six games this season and should continue to be an important part of the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins practices in full Friday

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 14:04:06 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a full practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is expected to see his regular complement of snaps in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Hopkins and Will Fuller will both be good to go Monday night, but the matchup for both is the most difficult one either player will see all season. Hopkins is simply too good to bench in fantasy, but expectations need to be set low. The Broncos have allowed only two receivers to top 60 yards and kept opposing wideouts out of the end zone since Week 1. As such, he's no better than a WR3 this week.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins added to injury report

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 06:30:20 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 20, with a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice Thursday, but he's expected to play in Week 7 on Monday Night Football.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk has been pretty underwhelming with a 31-354-3 line this season, and he faces the stout Denver Broncos defense. He's a midrange WR1 option this week.

Texans | Nuk Hopkins produces touchdown

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 16:49:09 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He was targeted nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins hasn't been a producing like a Top 5 fantasy receiver, as he and Brock Osweiler haven't had the same kind of rapport as some of the other pass-catch combos in the league. Hopkins remains a WR1 in all fantasy leagues for his upside. He has just one 100-yard game in five tries, although he has at least found the end zone in three of his five outings.
