Texans receivers could succeed in a shootout
by Chris Towers |

Andre Johnson is still the top target in the Texans passing game, but DeAndre Hopkins has outproduced him so far. Still, Fantasy owners should feel comfortable relying on both in Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Dallas has done a better job than we expected on defense this season, with opposing wide receivers averaging just 16.0 Fantasy points per game. However, this receiving duo has been productive so far, and we expect that to continue; they are averaging 138.3 yards per game through four games.

The Cowboys defensive backfield has held up well, but this receiving duo is too productive at this point to consider benching, especially in what could end up being a shootout. Jamey Eisenberg has Johnson ranked as low as 35th among wide receivers, but Dave Richard's ranking has Johnson inside the top-30. Consider Hopkins a solid starter, with Johnson more of a flex or No. 3 option.

DeAndre Hopkins looks like the real deal
by Chris Towers |

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been just about as consistent as they come through four games, as he continues to cement his spot in the team's hierarchy.

Hopkins still isn't the top option in Houston, and it doesn't look like that is going to change anytime soon. Still, he might just be the best receiver there, as he topped 10 Fantasy points for the fourth straight game, with his 64-yard, one-touchdown performance. He is simply making the most of his chances, despite mediocre quarterback play.

Hopkins isn't going to keep scoring three touchdowns in every four games, so there will be some times when the scoring trickles. Still, he looks like the real deal, and has to be considered a solid No. 2 wide receiver, a nice return on your investment this season.

DeAndre Hopkins scores touchdown in Week 4 win vs. Bills
by R.J. White |

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught five of his six targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in his team's 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4.

Hopkins hauled in a 35-yard pass late in the first half with relative ease after getting behind his defender and took it to the house for his third score of the season. While he didn't have much of an impact outside the touchdown, the second-year receiver has racked up 291 yards on 18 receptions and three touchdowns in his first four games. A favorable Week 5 matchup awaits when the Texans travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys.

Time to trust in DeAndre Hopkins?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has made a notable Fantasy contribution in all three of his games this season even though he's been out-targeted by Andre Johnson in each. While touchdowns had a lot to do with it the first two weeks, he simply played a bigger role in passing game Week 3 at the Giants, catching six passes for 116 yards. By comparison, Johnson caught four passes for 24 yards.

Now, maybe that wouldn't mean much on its own -- Johnson still had the more targets of the two, after all -- but coach Bill O'Brien assessed Hopkins' performance this way the next day:

"He's having a really good year. We need to do a better job of getting him the ball."

That shouldn't be so difficult Week 4 against the Bills. They rank 26th against the pass, allowing 267.0 yards per game, and have given up the 10th-most Fantasy points to wide receivers.

Dave Richard's ranking, 17th among wide receivers, seems a little high to me, but Jamey Eisenberg's ranking, 27th, seems a low. Top 25 is probably just right and would make Hopkins an advisable starter in standard 12-team leagues.

Texans coach wants DeAndre Hopkins more involved
by Michael Hurcomb |

Texans coach Bill O'Brien was very complimentary Monday of second-year wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who is averaging 75.7 receiving yards per game and has two touchdowns through the first three weeks. 

O'Brien was impressed with Hopkins' one-handed catch that came off the board because of a penalty on offensive lineman Tyson Clabo. 

"It was a fantastic catch," O'Brien said. "He's having a really good year. We need to do a better job of getting him the ball."
