Texans | Nuke Hopkins finds the end zone

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:55:30 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 win against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Nuke took a backseat to Will Fuller, who had nearly double the amount of receiving yards in the opener. That's because Hopkins faced double teams while the rookie was freed up. If Fuller continues to produce, Hopkins should see more single coverages allowing him to produce like a first-round fantasy pick. He remains a must-start in all fantasy formats across the board.

Texans | Jaelen Strong in starting position

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 16:05:07 -0700

Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong was listed as the No. 2 wide receiver opposite WR DeAndre Hopkins on Houston's initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Strong is a sleeper candidate heading into his second professional season. He had a nose for the endzone last year and is in better condition this season. Will Fuller will more than likely be Strong's main competition, but Strong makes is an attractive target as a deep flier in later rounds of fantasy drafts.

Texans | Houston not talking to DeAndre Hopkins

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 10:48:40 -0700

Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith said the team has not started discussions with WR DeAndre Hopkins on a new contract. "There is not a negotiation happening at this point," Smith said on NFL Network's Inside Training Camp Live. "He's under contract for two more years."

Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old Hopkins had 111 receptions, 1,521 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns last season despite the Texans' shaky quarterback situation and should be viewed as a high-end WR1 in all fantasy formats.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins will get his in time

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 23:43:59 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will have his contract addressed at the proper time, according to owner Bob McNair. "We'll deal with his contract at the proper time," McNair said. "We take care of our players and we'll take care of him."

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins is an elite receiver coming off of a 111-1,521-11 season in which he didn't really have a quarterback. The Texans believe they have their franchise QB in Brock Osweiler now, and Hopkins remains a high-end WR1.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins activated

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 23:32:01 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was activated from the Reserve/Did Not Report list Sunday, July 31. The team declined offering him a contract extension. He's due a non-guaranteed $1 million base salary this season and a $445,004 roster bonus on the fifth day of training camp. Hopkins was subject to $40,000 fines for each missed day of camp.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had a stellar 111-1,521-11 season in 2015. He is one of the best receivers in fantasy and should remain firmly entrenched in the WR1 window.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins returning

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 11:51:23 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will end his holdout and return to the Texans Sunday, July 31, the first day of training camp. Hopkins expressed his disappointment in Houston's lack of contract negotiations, but he also stated his desire to help the Texans win a Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: We could see Hopkins try to prove himself even more in 2016, not that he still needs to prove himself. He'll want to show the Texans he deserves a long-term contract and should be considered late in the first round or early in the second round of fantasy drafts.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins put on Reserve/DNR list

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 16:18:04 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list Saturday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk is reportedly going to forfeit a $445,000 roster bonus due to the holdout. It doesn't affect his fantasy stock as a high-end WR1 for now.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins has roster bonus pending

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 11:44:10 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has a $445,000 roster bonus due Thursday, Aug. 4, if he is on the 90-man roster. If he is placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list, he will not earn the roster bonus.

Fantasy Tip: It's a waiting game for Hopkins and the Texans. He's still their best receiver, though, and should still be considered late in the first round or early in the second round of fantasy drafts.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins not at training camp

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 08:21:38 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not report to training camp because he is unhappy with his contract and the team is not willing to negotiate an extension. Hopkins can be fined $40,000 for each day of camp he misses.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how long Hopkins is willing to sit out because of his contract. Hopkins should still be selected in one of the first few rounds of fantasy drafts and should be one of the top performers at the position.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins drops contract hints

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 18:47:33 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he is not looking for a "certain range" for his next contract but wants to be paid what he is worth. General manager Rick Smith said he is hopeful Hopkins will be around for a long time.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has developed into one of the top receivers in the game, and he is a WR1 in any format.

Texans | Cecil Shorts admired for toughness

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 20:21:26 -0700

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts was praised by WR DeAndre Hopkins for his toughness. "Even if he's hurt, he's going to go out there," Hopkins said. "You'll have to tell him to go on the sideline and get checked out. He's a hard worker."

Fantasy Tip: Houston added some receivers in the early rounds of the draft, and Shorts will likely be pushed further down the depth chart sooner rather than later. At best, he is a late-round flier.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins, Osweiler progressing

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 12:41:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brock Osweiler and WR DeAndre Hopkins have progressed in their chemistry, according to head coach Bill O'Brien, who said both players are working extremely hard.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has proven that he can succeed no matter who is throwing the football. He's still by far their best receiving option and worth a look in the mid-WR1 group. Osweiler, on the other hand, should not be drafted as a starting fantasy quarterback in his first season with the Texans.

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.

Texans | Three Texans limited Wednesday

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 13:31:33 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and RB Alfred Blue (calf) were limited in practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to believe that any of these guys would miss the playoffs this Saturday. It will be promising if any of them have a full practice, but they should still be able to play, particularly Hopkins. The Kansas City Chiefs are in the top ten in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers, too, so Hopkins remains a solid play for those in playoff leagues. Blue, on the other hand, is not an advisable option as the Chiefs boast a top-five fantasy defense against running backs.

Texans | Nuke Hopkins posts 89 yards

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 18:35:28 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in a game-high seven receptions for 89 yards in the Week 17 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted 12 times.

Fantasy Tip: Nuke will be a popular FantasyScore option heading into the first round of the NFL playoffs, as he catches plenty of balls and he can rack up big yardage totals and scores against a Kansas City Chiefs defense which allowed 24 passing touchdowns this season.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins makes history

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 10:15:10 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is the first player in NFL history to have four 100-yard receiving games with four different starting quarterbacks in a season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) is a stud WR1 candidate every week on FantasyScore, against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 15:42:06 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes for 117 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has played well not matter the quarterback he is playing with and has at least five receptions in all but one game this season. He will be facing the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17 and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins eyeing long-term extension

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 06:41:42 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins' agent Hadley Engelhard met with the organization, and the receiver is expected to eventually sign a lucrative long-term contract extension, but nothing is imminent. Hopkins enters the final year of his contract in 2016, and then the Texans can pick up a fifth-year team option for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has been the focal point of the Texans offense for much of the season, especially with veteran RB Arian Foster playing just four games. Hopkins sits with 97 receptions, 1315 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns and has been a top-five wideout for the year. The Houston quarterback situation is a little concerning, but it hasn't slowed Hopkins this year, and he has caught passes from four different signal callers. He projects as a slam-dunk No. 1 WR in all fantasy formats through the rest of this season and into 2016.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins plays well

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:03:34 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught eight passes for 94 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has caught at least five passes in all but one game this season and has at least 80 yards receiving in nine games. Hopkins may have a new quarterback to work with against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16 but should still be a starting option.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins not too productive

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:49:28 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins had three grabs for 52 yards in the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots took Hopkins out of the mix for the most part, something they tend to do against the opposition's top receiving target. He will look to bounce back in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts, a team with a banged up secondary.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins starting Sunday night

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 16:35:49 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is active and will start in the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins should be a strong FantasyScore option, but remember the Patriots are one of the best teams to neutralize the top receiving option on the opposition and force secondary options to beat them.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins, Cecil Shorts probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 16:11:39 -0800

Houston Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) and Cecil Shorts (hamstring) are both probable to face the New England Patriots in Week 14. Hopkins was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11, while Shorts practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans will surely have to pass often to keep up with a Patriots team trying to end a two-game skid. That means Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) should remain heavily involved, although the Pats will do everything in their power to shut him down. Shorts ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has deep sleeper potential after a six-catch, 10-target, 91-yard game last week.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins should be in uniform

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 12:56:38 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 4, and is listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) is coming off his worst game of the season in terms of receiving yards in Week 12 but has been one of the best fantasy receivers in 2015. He will be facing a favorable matchup this week and should be a starting option in most leagues.

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 16:17:38 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 3, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) had his worst game of the season last week in a game that Houston won comfortably. In Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills, expect Hopkins to return to double-digit targets and big-time production. Paying up for him at FantasyScore won't end in disappointment.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins limited Wednesday

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 15:44:47 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: The hamstring ailment doesn't sound like too big of a deal, and as long as Hopkins doesn't regress he should be good to go this week. Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) is a recommended start against a mediocre Buffalo Bills pass defense.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins a frequent target

Mon, 30 Nov 2015 10:11:17 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has been targeted 11 or more times in every game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) had a rare quiet game in Week 12 and faces a Buffalo Bills team that might give you some pause this week. The Bills have actually been in the lower half of the league at defending the position the last five weeks. Hopkins is a weekly consideration on FantasyScore.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins held in check

Sun, 29 Nov 2015 18:50:10 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins finished with five catches for 36 yards in a 24-6 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had his lowest yardage total of the season, and Hopkins now has just one 100-yard game in his last five contests. However, he has found the end zone four times during the same stretch, so he hasn't been a bust at FantasyScore by any means.

Texans | Big week for DeAndre Hopkins?

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 21:56:40 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 12. The Saints rank 31st in the NFL against the pass, allowing 293.1 yards per game while giving up 28 touchdowns, worst in the NFL. They have also given up 13 pass plays of 20 or more yards with a league-high 13 pass plays of 40 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) will get his quarterback back under center, too, as Brian Hoyer returns from concussion. Look for a huge stat line for Hopkins and his FantasyScore owners.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-17 win over the New York Jets in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had gone three straight games without reaching 100 yards, but he has found the end zone in three straight. He has already surpassed 1,000 yards for the year, and he remains of the top options at his position at FantasyScore.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 20, but is listed as probable for Week 11 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) has bust written all over him this week with T.J. Yates at quarterback while going up against Darrelle Revis. The right move is to avoid him on FantasyScore, as he could be stranded on Revis Island.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins should be able to play

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 11:11:33 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) should be "ready to go" in Week 11 against the New York Jets despite missing two practices this week, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Hopkins played all 63 offensive snaps in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: At Hopkins' ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) lofty FantasyScore price, this is shaping up to be a weekend to avoid him. Not only will T.J. Yates start at quarterback, but Hopkins isn't 100% healthy and will be matched up with shutdown corner Darrelle Revis.

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 10:19:14 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was out of practice Thursday, Nov. 19, working off to the side.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) could draw a matchup with Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets in Week 11 with T.J. Yates under center. There might be too many negative factors to use him on FantasyScore this week.

Texans | No practice for DeAndre Hopkins

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 12:45:03 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: This is turning into a pretty concerning week for Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap). He's dealing with a sudden knee injury, his starting quarterback may not be playing and he'll probably be facing Darrelle Revis. Lower your expectations for Hopkins in Week 11.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Nov. 16. He was targeted a game-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins was the only one to have a decent FantasyScore line in the Monday night game. He remains a solid fantasy option most nights, but he could have lesser appeal if T.J. Yates makes the start in Week 11.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins becoming elite receiver

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 09:33:01 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has 870 yards receiving this year with six touchdowns in eight games in his third year in the NFL, and he had four straight 100-yard games to tie a franchise record in 2015. Hopkins, as a result, has seen more double teams from opposing defenses.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) is putting up great numbers with a mediocre quarterback, too, which makes it even more impressive. It doesn't hurt that he's seen at least 11 targets in every game this year and has seen as many as 22 looks in a game. He faces a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense Monday night in Week 10, but you can't argue with the volume in daily leagues like FantasyScore.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins reaches milestone

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 13:23:46 -0800

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is ahead of WR Andre Johnson's pace for yardage gained over his first three seasons as a Texan. Hopkins had 94 yards Sunday, Nov. 1, in a 20-6 win over the Tennessee Titans. Hopkins now has 3,076 yards in 40 games to Johnson's 2,806 yards in 45 games.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) has been one of the big bright spots in an otherwise blah season for the Texans. As long as he and QB Brian Hoyer have rapport, Hopkins is worth starting.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins comes up big again

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 17:17:24 -0700

Texans | Brian Hoyer solid on third down

Sun, 18 Oct 2015 13:59:48 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer threw three touchdown passes on third down during his team's 31-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, Oct. 18. Two of those touchdowns went to WR DeAndre Hopkins.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should still be a buyer beware for one reason. This was the Jaguars that Houston faced. Still, there's no question Hoyer is showing some signs of improvement over the past two weeks. He is priced low enough in FantasyScore that Hoyer is worth the low cost.
