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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Will Fuller and Braxton Miller are waiting in the wings, and Shorts' role could diminish over the course of the year. In the meantime, Shorts could be worth a flier as a shot-in-the-dark DFS play.

Fantasy Tip: This seemingly has come out of nowhere, and it could cause Houston's defense to drop in the rankings if their star player shows any ill effects in the year ahead. If this becomes an issue that keeps Watt from playing to his full capacity, it would easily have significant ramifications on the defensive unit.

Fantasy Tip: Fuller has speed, and he doesn't have a big, uphill climb into playing time. He's a WR5 flyer with upside.
