2019 Outlook: DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins was the No. 1 PPR receiver in 2018 and No. 2 in 2017, and we expect him to stay in that range again this season. He's worth drafting as the first receiver off the board in all formats with a pick toward the middle to the end of Round 1, likely as early as No. 6 overall. Hopkins is a star with a standout quarterback in Deshaun Watson, and he was exceptional in 2018. Hopkins was No. 5 in the NFL in targets (163), No. 3 in receptions (115), No. 2 in receiving yards (1,572) and No. 5 in receiving touchdowns (11). He could lose some production if Will Fuller and Keke Coutee both stay healthy for 16 games this season, but we still expect plenty of tremendous stats from Hopkins in 2019. He's well worth the investment with a first-round pick.
