Hopkins is dealing with an ankle injury, and was unable to go. Hopkins has played in all 14 games this season. He has 1167 yards on 69 receptions. Hopkins has caught six touchdowns. His status will likely be determined based on how much he is able to practice on Thursday and Friday.
Hopkins was targeted on more than half of Houston's passes, seeing 13 targets on 25 attempts, but was unable to do much with rookie Tom Savage at quarterback for most of the game. He now owns 69 receptions for 1,167 yards and six touchdowns with just two games remaining. While a matchup with the Ravens secondary in Week 16 would normally be a boon, he'll have to contend with question marks at quarterback moving forward.
Hopkins had no touchdowns Sunday, was targeted six times and his longest catch went 28 yards. The Texans are back in action Week 15 at Indianapolis.
In two games with Ryan Mallett under center,
When the two reunited Week 13 at Tennessee, they made sure they'd never be separated again. Well, at least not in 2014 ... health permitting, of course. Fitzpatrick found Hopkins nine times for 238 yards -- a career high, as you might imagine -- and two touchdowns. They connected deep down the middle of the field on a 58-yard bomb late in the second quarter and deep along the sideline on a 34-yard throw late in the third. Hopkins also had catches of 23, 31 and 56 yards.
Hopkins showed plenty of big-play ability, and Fitzpatrick, though not a star, proved he's better equipped than Mallett to make use of it. Now that he has his quarterback back, Hopkins looks like a must-start Fantasy wide receiver.
Hopkins is up to 1,041 receiving yards after totaling 802 as a rookie. He showed great hands Sunday and was physical after the catch. This was his fourth game this year with at least 100 receiving yards.
Up to six touchdowns, Hopkins visits the Jaguars in Week 14.
