Player Outlook

If you didn't believe it before last year, you can't help but believe it now - DeAndre Hopkins is one of the best receivers in Fantasy. With a rag-tag mix of quarterbacks throwing to him last season, Hopkins was about to notch 10 or more Fantasy points 10 times in 16 games, catching 111 of the 193 targets sent his way. In order for Hopkins to maintain his status as an elite Fantasy receiver, he'll need to keep getting fed targets. That should be the case with new quarterback Brock Osweiler joining the Texans. Hopkins also said this offseason he'd like to improve on his ability after the catch, suggesting that even after a breakout season he could somehow get better. Between the new quarterback and his own motivation, it's possible. With 10 dome games in his future and very beatable cornerbacks in the AFC South, Hopkins is a no-brainer No. 1 Fantasy receiver worth a first-round pick in all formats.

Player News
  • Hopkins left training camp on Saturday with the intentions of holding out after Houston declined to negotiate his contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Hopkins has seen his numbers increase in each of his three seasons with the Texans, and finished the 2015 season with a remarkable 1,521 receiving yards, 111 receptions, and 11 touchdowns. His current contract does not correlate with this type of production as he is set to earn just one million this season followed by a jump to eight million in 2017. Hopkins has made references to the media over the summer about his displeasure with the current state of his contract, but this is the first time he has acted on it. He is now subject to a $40,000 fine each day he holds out.

  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Fewer double teams ahead
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hopkins could see fewer double team coverage as rookies Will Fuller and Braxton Miller develop over the course of the upcoming season, the Houston Chronicle reports. Hopkins was routinely bracketed by multiple defenders last season, when the Texans lacked playmakers opposite him in their passing game. While Hopkins still broke out with a whopping 111 catches for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns, the draft additions of Fuller and Miller could allow him more freedom this season. Fuller ran the fastest 40-yard dash among receivers at the combine and Miller wasn't far behind him, so after they learn the nuances of Houston's offense, coach Bill O'Brien hopes opposing defenses will key less on rolling coverage toward Hopkins.

  • The Texans exercised Hopkins' option on the fifth year of his contract, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Coming off a dominant season in which he collected 111 passes for 1,521 and 11 touchdowns, it shouldn't be much of a surprise the Texans were willing to pick up the option on the final year of his rookie contract. The Clemson product will remain with the team through 2017 at the very least, but the Texans will likely try to extend him prior to then. Hopkins should once again serve as the team's top wideout, but will prepare to catch passes from the recently-acquired Brock Osweiler.

  • Hopkins caught just six of 11 balls thrown his way for 69 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The Pro-Bowler's lack of dominant production was largely the fault of Brian Hoyer, who struggled mightily on the day, completing fewer than half of his passes and turning the ball over five times. That said, Hopkins easily could have had a much better day, as Hoyer overthrew him on a fade rout in the end zone before he had a big gain nullified by an offensive pass interference penalty. Nuk amazingly set career-highs in nearly every receiving category this season despite playing with an inept quartet of quarterbacks, and his prominent role in the Houston offense will make him a desirable fantasy asset once again next season.

  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Active Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hopkins (hand) is listed as active Saturday versus the Chiefs. Hopkins kicked off the week of preparation with a limited showing at practice, yet his ability to finish the week with two consecutive full sessions indicated that he'd take the field. After torching the Chiefs for nine catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener, he could find the going tough against a Kansas City defense that allowed just six touchdowns to wideouts over the last eight games.
