Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught 76 passes for 1,210 yards last year, and among players drafted in the past two seasons, his production was better than everyone except New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. "We just want to see him continue and progress," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "We think he can be one of the best, we think he is one of the best. We have a lot of confidence in him and we're looking forward to seeing him progress when the offseason program starts."
Fantasy Tip: With Andre Johnson no longer in the picture, Hopkins is set to open the year as the focal points of Houston's passing attack. He has a good chance to improve on his numbers from last season and should be considered a low-end WR2 with upside in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts is going from one mediocre quarterback to another, no matter who starts for the Texans in 2015. Additionally, Shorts has not yet played a full season in his four-year career. He should be considered no more than a WR3.
