Hopkins is locked in as Washington's kicker, according to the team's official website. Washington didn't even bother adding another kicker to the 90-man offseason roster. Hopkins has made just nine of 18 kicks from 50-plus yards through four NFL seasons, but he's been excellent on shorter field-goal attempts, converting 28 of 34 (82.4 percent) from 40-49 yards and 62 of 64 (96.9 percent) inside of 40. There are at least 20 superior options for fantasy purposes, as the Washington offense isn't likely to provide a plethora of kicking opportunities.
Hopkins did attempt a field goal during Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Eagles. Hopkins made 90 percent of field goals he attempted this season (26-for-29) and converted 95.2 percent of extra-point tries (25-for-26). Despite his strong accuracy, Hopkins' low volume limited his fantasy upside all throughout the 2018 season. With two years remaining on his contract, Hopkins will return as Washington's starting kicker in 2019.
Hopkins made all three of his field-goal attempts and an extra point in Sunday's loss to the Titans. Hopkins scored 10 points for the second week in a row, hitting on three field goals in a game for the fifth time this season. He's drilling an impressive 90 percent of his field goals this season (26-for-29). He'll look to maintain the quality play in Washington's season finale against the Eagles in Week 17.
Hopkins made three field goals and an extra point during Sunday's 16-13 win over the Jaguars. After putting up a goose egg in Week 14, Hopkins nailed three field goals for the fourth time this season. It still remains hard to rely on Hopkins for the rest of year, however, as the absence of Alex Smith under center has stalled Washington's offense.
Hopkins finished Sunday's game against the Giants without any kicking attempts. It was a rough day for Hopkins' owners, as he went without a stat line for the first time all season. The 27-year-old is in the midst of a career season highlighted by a career-best field-goal conversion rate (87 percent). Without Alex Smith, Washington's offense has endured a noticeable drop-off, which apparently has trickled down to Hopkins.
