Texans | DeAndre Hopkins continues strong play

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:33:33 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes for 76 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has the ability to produce no matter the starting quarterback and appears to be continuing that trend with Deshaun Watson as the starter. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

Texans | No hiding DeAndre Hopkins

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 21:54:30 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has been facing double-teams all season because "everyone in the league knows we're going to throw the ball to Hopkins," head coach Bill O'Brien said.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has had trouble breaking loose for big plays, but with 29 targets and 14 receptions through two games, he can still be deployed as a WR2 against the Patriots in Week 3.

Texans | Chemistry growing for DeAndre Hopkins

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 18:55:53 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said the chemistry between he and QB Deshaun Watson is improving every day. "We're growing, we're getting to know each other, and it's getting better, I can say," Hopkins said.

Fantasy Tip: In their first full game together, Watson targeted Hopkins 13 times. The big plays haven't been there, but the huge workload should make him a low-end WR2, especially in PPR formats, against the Patriots in Week 3.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins leading NFL in targets

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 19:31:07 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has 29 targets through Week 2, making him easily the most targeted receiver in the league through two games.

Fantasy Tip: To give you some sense of how much the Texans are relying on him, 24 of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson's 47 pass attempts in six quarters of action have been thrown in direction of Hopkins. The fifth-year wideout has responded with seven receptions in each of his first two games but is averaging only 9.1 yards per catch. Life won't get any easier in Week 3 when the New England Patriots will almost certainly force Watson to rely on his other receivers. Nevertheless, Hopkins is a solid WR2 in fantasy.

Texans | Plenty of looks for DeAndre Hopkins

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 20:53:05 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his 13 targets for 73 yards in a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins saw more targets than the rest of the team combined, but neither Tom Savage nor Deshaun Watson has shown the ability to connect with him consistently, especially on deeper throws. Hopkins looked stuck as a high-upside WR3 for now.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins a target machine

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 14:39:11 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins saw 16 targets in the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The rest of Houston's offense had 16 targets combined.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will be targeted plenty no matter who the quarterback is, but he benefitted more from Deshaun Watson. He only totaled 54 yards on the 16 targets, but he did tally seven catches, including a touchdown. Hopkins remains a WR1 this week as the Texans' go-to receiving threat.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins targeted 16 times

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 18:16:34 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes on 16 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in a 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: It's nice to see the heavy usage, but until Houston can find a quarterback who can consistently hook up with Hopkins, the receiver's value is going to be capped. Consider him a WR3 heading into a Thursday night matchup with Cincinnati in Week 2.

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 16:08:14 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins missed most of the preseason because of the injury but will be on the field for Week 1. He will see plenty of targets in the passing game this week and can be No. 2 receiver.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins pronounces himself healthy

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 10:15:36 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb) told reporters he is "1,000 percent" recovered from the thumb injury that sidelined him for a few weeks during the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins didn't get much time to bond with new quarterback Tom Savage in August, but he's a solid candidate to be force-fed targets among a receiving corps that will be missing Will Fuller released a few weeks and possibly Braxton Miller for the opener. Consider him a solid WR2 with WR1 upside if Savage proves to be even an average NFL quarterback and can stay healthy for any length of time.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins says he's healthy

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 09:53:19 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb) said he's "1,000 percent healthy," when asked if he was 100 percent Monday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk slumped to a 78-954-4 line in 2016 after emerging as a WR1 the previous season. A lot of that can be attributed to the brutal QB play, which may still be an issue this season. He's a WR2 in fantasy.

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 16:12:47 -0700

Texans | Contract extension for DeAndre Hopkins

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 15:55:31 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension with the Texans Thursday, Aug. 31, according to sources. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the deal will include the largest guarantee for any receiver in the NFL.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has played well over the last several seasons even though the Texans have used multiple quarterbacks during that time. He has recorded at least 1,000 yards in two of the last three seasons and has 15 touchdowns over the last two seasons. Hopkins will receive plenty of targets in 2017 and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins a no-go Saturday

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 17:50:37 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) did not play in the team's third preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Saturday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: His absence was expected, as he has not practiced in two weeks. While the Texans have consistently said they will be smart with their top receiver, the amount of practice he has missed with what has been termed a "minor hand injury" is a slight concern. Hopkins figures to see plenty of volume this season, making him a solid WR2 in most leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins does not practice

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 18:14:45 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has not practiced much over the last few weeks but probably will be ready for the start of the regular season. He has performed well over the last several years even though the Texans have used multiple quarterbacks during that span. He should be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues this season.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins sits out again

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 23:35:03 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 15, and he has not practiced since Monday, Aug. 7. Head coach Bill O'Brien indicated that Hopkins is "doing fine," and has previously likened Hopkins' practice schedule leading up to the regular season as being on a "pitch count."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't worry themselves about Hopkins' health. The concerns stem from uncertainty at quarterback, but Hopkins is a proven producer that should offer a statistical floor as a WR2.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins sits out Saturday

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 12:05:06 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 12, because he received the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has been a productive player for the Texans no matter who the quarterback has been, so owners should expect another good season from him. He has recorded at least 1,000 yards in two of the last three seasons and has 15 touchdowns over the last two seasons. He should be at least a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins endorses Tom Savage

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 20:00:13 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins believes QB Tom Savage should open the year as the starter. "If anybody should be a judge of quarterbacks, I've played with the most quarterbacks in NFL history throughout my first four years," Hopkins said. "So I put the stamp on Savage, and I think that's all that needs to be said about that."

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback situation in Houston still isn't ideal, but Hopkins is no worse than a WR2 this season.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins expected to report on time

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 13:22:50 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has not made a lot of progress in contract extension talks with the Texans but is expected to report to training camp on time. Both sides are motivated to reach an agreement on a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will continue to be the focal point in the passing game in 2017 and will look to improve on his stats from last season. He will be working with an inexperience quarterback this season but should still be able to be one of the better receivers in the NFL. He probably should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins hoping to stay

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 19:55:37 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he feels the city has embraced him and Houston feels like his hometown. "I love being here," Hopkins said. "I love playing for this team, great organization."

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins suffered from poor quarterback play last season, but he is just two years removed from a 111-catch, 1,521-yard campaign. Don't be surprised if he recaptures his WR1 form this season.

Texans | Tom Savage taking advantage of reps

Sat, 03 Jun 2017 21:01:31 -0700

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage said taking reps with the first-team offense has been a great opportunity to work on his timing and communication with WR DeAndre Hopkins and the other starters.

Fantasy Tip: Savage is just keeping the seat warm for Deshaun Watson, and even if he breaks camp as the starter, Savage is low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins learning from Wes Welker

Fri, 26 May 2017 20:40:51 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said it has been great learning from assistant coach Wes Welker.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was the victim of poor quarterback play last year, but the WR1 upside is still there. If he slips past the first few rounds, don't hesitate to snatch him up.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins wanted Deshaun Watson

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:37:59 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins told the media prior to the 2017 NFL Draft that he would love to have QB Deshaun Watson throwing him the ball.

Fantasy Tip: If Watkins can break camp as the starter, he will be worth a flier as a low-end QB2 in redraft leagues. He has QB1 potential long term, giving him even more value in keeper formats and rookie drafts.

Texans | HOU intent on signing DeAndre Hopkins

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 08:45:49 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is a player the team is intent on signing to a contract extension, according to general manager Rick Smith.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk saw a huge decrease in production last year, but a lot of it was due to spotty quarterback play. It still has some wondering if his 111-1,521-11 dominance in 2015 was an aberration with two modest lines on each side. The upside is there, and who's to complain if he falls to the low-end WR1 range?

Patriots | New England pursued DeAndre Hopkins

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 11:04:20 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was a primary trade target for the New England Patriots during the season. Prior to dealing LB Jamie Collins to the Cleveland Browns for a conditional third-round pick, the Patriots asked for Hopkins in a potential trade for Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Collins' tendency to freelance and miss assignments went play any better for Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel than it did for Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, but the offer is still interesting nonetheless. As it is now, Hopkins has stated he loves playing in Houston and the Texans are interested in extending his contract, so expect him to remain in Texas for the foreseeable future.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins may receive new deal

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 12:14:52 -0800

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said the team will try to sign WR DeAndre Hopkins to a long-term extension this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had a disappointing 2016 season and finished with 954 yards and four touchdowns during the regular season. He played better during the playoffs with 11 catches for 132 yards and one touchdown in two games. He will continue to be the team's top receiver in the passing game in 2017 and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in leagues depending on the quarterback situation.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins kept mostly in check

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 21:12:39 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 65 yards in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was able to find a better connection with Brock Osweiler late in the season and had nine targets in this one, but 2016 will still go down as a bust for "Nuk" in large part because Osweiler struggled so much in getting him the ball downfield. This offseason should present a nice buy-low window for patient owners, but those in redraft should probably consider him a WR2 at best until they see significant improvement from Osweiler.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins not on injury report

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 14:36:26 -0800

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 13, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will be a big factor in the passing game even though he is dealing with the knee injury. He likely will lead the team in targets during the game and can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins limited, but will play

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 11:51:14 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited at practice for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 13, but he will be "set to go" in the team's Divisional Round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 14, versus the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: He's not listed as questionable or doubtful, so this ensures Hopkins will be out there come kickoff. Nuk should see plenty of work in this one, with the Texans likely to throw his way a lot throughout the contest. If the expected scenario of the Patriots blowing out the Texans plays out, Houston could be passing virtually all game, which only adds up to extra looks for Hopkins. As a result, he does have fine WR1 potential this weekend.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins limited Thursday

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 16:07:16 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins played in all 16 games this season and he'll be out there on Saturday night. He's in an interesting spot, as the Texans are likely to get blown out in New England, meaning Houston could be throwing a lot more than usual to try and keep up. No matter how it plays out, Hopkins looks like a fine WR1 option this weekend for all formats.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins says knee is fine

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 12:36:57 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) said his injured knee feels excellent.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 11, but should see his normal workload against the New England Patriots. He posted solid numbers in the Wild Card playoff game but will be facing a tougher defense this week. Owners should consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins listed as limited

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 13:58:29 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins probably will be ready to play against the New England Patriots, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He recorded 67 yards and one touchdown in the Wild Card playoff game and will continue to be a main part of the passing game. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins finds the end zone

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 17:06:44 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins finished with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a Wild Card playoff win over the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had nine targets and showed better-than-usual chemistry with Brock Osweiler, who looked better than he has most of the season as Houston picked up the tempo to run out to an early lead. Hopkins' score with 1:20 left in the second quarter came on a quick 2-yard slant and essentially put the nail in the coffin for the Raiders. Whether the Texans face the Kansas City Chiefs or the New England Patriots on the road next week, Hopkins will hard-pressed to post anything more than WR3 production.

Texans | Nuke Hopkins ends on high note

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 16:20:08 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted seven receptions for 123 yards on 11 targets in the regular season finale in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had a disappointing year by his standards, finishing with his lowest yardage total (954) and touchdowns (4) since his rookie campaign of 2013. While Hopkins was a disappointment in the regular season, he still has WR2 ability for those playing postseason pools and DFS.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins targeted often

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 15:59:55 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins finished with eight receptions for 87 yards in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he was targeted 17 times.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins seemed to have quite the rapport with replacement QB Tom Savage, and you can expect that to continue into Week 16 if Savage is tabbed as the starter for Week 16. Hopkins remains more of a low-end WR2 at this point after a disappointing season from a fantasy perspective.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and isn't listed on the Week 15 injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins' value has been capped all year by the play of Brock Osweiler, and he is no more than a WR3 against Jacksonville in Week 15.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a disappointing season for Hopkins, but if he suits up in Week 15, he is still worth starting as a WR3 in a favorable matchup against Jacksonville.

Texans | Limited practice for DeAndre Hopkins

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 16:57:13 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Hopkins is in any danger of missing Week 15, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He is having a disappointing season and has posted at least 80 yards in only one game this season. Hopkins can still be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues, but owners should not count on a big game from him.

Texans | Just two grabs for Nuke Hopkins

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 21:51:54 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins had two catches for a team-high 33 yards on four targets in the Week 14 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has been a major disappointment this season, mostly due to erratic quarterback play. He should be treated as a low-end WR2 going forward despite his high-round draft position in most fantasy leagues.

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.

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.

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.
