Texans | More muscle for DeAndre Hopkins

Mon, 23 May 2016 14:46:28 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he has gained more weight by adding muscle this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was already a nightmare for opposing secondaries. Now he might be able to better handle double-teams. The Texans do have a new-look offense with Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller, but Hopkins should still be a focal point and is a WR1 option in fantasy drafts.

Texans | No extension imminent for DeAndre Hopkins

Mon, 09 May 2016 10:55:40 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins and the Texans aren't close on a contract extension after the Texans exercised Hopkins' fifth-year option worth $7.915 million, according to a source. He's in the third year of a $7.637 million rookie contract that includes a $3.926 million signing bonus and $6.181 million guaranteed. Hopkins is confident both sides will work something out.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans have plenty of time to work something out with one of the best emerging young receivers in the game. Hopkins has put up elite wideout numbers while working with very mediocre quarterbacks in his time with Houston. The addition of Brock Osweiler in 2016 could push Hopkins to an even higher ceiling, and the star receiver will have even more help across the field in rookie Will Fuller. Hopkins is a top-five fantasy receiver.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins' option exercised

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 15:35:47 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins' fifth-year option was exercised Friday, April 15. He is scheduled to make $7.915 million in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was one of the best wide receivers in 2015 despite playing with multiple quarterbacks and should continue his solid play with Brock Osweiler. Hopkins should be selected in one of the first few rounds of all drafts next season.

Texans | Brock Osweiler looking good

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 12:03:36 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler is looking good during the team's offseason workouts, according to a source. WR DeAndre Hopkins has been off the charts, too.

Fantasy Tip: Osweiler had some success in his first seven NFL starts with the Denver Broncos last year, but he was inconsistent overall. He has the potential to become a low-end QB1 in the right matchups in 2016, but he's safer taken as a backup QB. Hopkins proved he is an elite WR1 and will now have one of the more talented quarterbacks he's ever had throwing to him in Houston.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins wants to stay in Houston

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 09:20:16 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he wants to spend his entire career with the Texans. "If I can play my whole career here, I would. I love this place," Hopkins said.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had 111 catches for a career-high 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns with four different mediocre quarterbacks in 2015. This guy is the real deal. Hopkins has emerged as an elite wideout and is worth a first-round fantasy selection in 2016.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins looking to improve

Sun, 14 Feb 2016 10:12:16 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he is working on improving his yards after catch total this offseason since he ranked 118th among NFL players in the category with 201 yards. He said he also wants to work on being a better team leader.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was one of the top receivers in the NFL this past season and will continue to be a main focus in Houston's offense. Hopkins likely will be one of the first receivers selected in drafts next season and probably will be selected in one of the first three rounds.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins receives praise

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 10:25:24 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, who had three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Pro Bowl, received praise from former WR Michael Irvin. "We don't know what the ceiling is," Irvin said. "You see the skillset, where he can catch footballs from anyplace in the world. There is no telling what the ceiling can be. He'll be rewriting a lot of records in the NFL." Hopkins had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and a franchise-record 11 touchdowns in 2015. Hopkins caught a touchdown from four different quarterbacks this year, which is an NFL record.

Fantasy Tip: Irvin is right, Hopkins' ceiling remains incredibly high. Just imagine if he had a strong quarterback slinging him passes on a regular basis. Even with Houston's QB position in flux, Hopkins has solidified his position as an elite fantasy receiver, and he's worth consideration in the first round of drafts.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins could burn Chiefs

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 19:14:54 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins faces the Kansas City Chiefs in the wild-card round of the playoffs Saturday, Jan. 9, and the Chiefs are allowing the second-most yards per game to opposing No. 1 receivers this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) had a monster regular season despite a revolving door at quarterback, and he should see more than enough targets against the Chiefs to justify his hefty price tag at FantasyScore.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins likely will play

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 12:45:54 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) fully participated in the team's walkthrough Friday, Jan. 8, and is listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) was successful with every quarterback he played with this season and should have a big role in the team's offense strategy. Hopkins has a big price tag on FantasyScore but should be a solid option if owners are willing to spend the money.

Texans | Full practice for three Texans

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:24:25 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Chris Polk (knee) were full participants in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Texans will have their three top wide receivers playing together in the playoffs, assuming Nate Washington is good to go. Hopkins ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is obviously a top wide receiver play this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, but Shorts ($3,700, 7.4%) is a decent sleeper, especially for a PPR scoring format like FantasyScore. As for Polk, he may not be utilized enough with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes also in the mix, so there are better options at running back than him.
