DeAndre Hopkins caught five of eight targets for just 36 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.
Despite the soft matchup and multiple passing scores from Brian Hoyer, Hopkins managed his lowest receiving output of the season. He still led the Houston Texans in targets and catches, but he simply wasn't heavily relied upon as the team turned to the defense and ground game to grind out a win. Hopkins is still the top option for the Houston offense, and he will look to bounce back in the Week 13 matchup with the Bills.
DeAndre Hopkins (knee) had five catches on 12 targets for 118 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Jets.
Lining up against Darrelle Revis for most of the game, Hopkins made the Jets' corner look like a rookie, beating him a number of times, including on a 61-yard touchdown while lined up one-on-one. The change under center from Brian Hoyer to T.J. Yates did nothing to limit Hopkins' production, as he was targeted twice as much as the next highest receiver. His two touchdowns now give him nine this season, tying him for the most in franchise history. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against a Saints defense that has been awful against the pass this season.
DeAndre Hopkins (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Though he figures to draw the capable coverage of Darrelle Revis, Hopkins should still see his share of looks from QB T.J. Yates on Sunday. Through his first nine games this season, Hopkins leads the NFL with 125 targets, and has been targeted at least 11 times per contest thus far.
DeAndre Hopkins (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
After missing back-to-back practices Wednesday and Thursday, Hopkins returned to a limited session Friday, with the probable designation backing up the wideout's previously-stated confidence with regard to his Week 11 playing status. Hopkins, who has seen at least 11 targets in all nine of the Houston Texans ' game this season, figures to remain busy on Sunday, though due to Brian Hoyer's concussion, backup T.J. Yates will start at QB for the Texans this weekend.
Despite missing back-to-back practices Wednesday and Thursday with a knee issue, DeAndre Hopkins indicated Thursday, "I'm good. I'm 100 percent."
Hopkins' declaration supports the notion that he should be a go Sunday against the Jets, but it will take a return to practice Friday on his part for our optimism regarding that outcome to be solidified.
