  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Scores in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hopkins nabbed four of nine targets for 76 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-21 win over Arizona. Hopkins put Houston back in front in the third quarter, reeling in a 28-yard back-shoulder fade from Tom Savage. It was Hopkins' ninth score of the season and second since Deshaun Watson tore his ACL. Houston's offense, until Sunday, was sluggish without Watson, but Hopkins is talented enough to get his no matter who's throwing passes. The No. 1 receiver has seen double-digit targets in seven of 10 contests this season, and he's averaged 91 yards in the three games since Watson went down while also posting two touchdowns. Expect him to keep it going.

  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Gets 14 targets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hopkins caught seven of 14 targets for 111 yards in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Rams. Tom Savage completed half of his passes and committed four turnovers, but he at least can be relied upon to pepper Hopkins with targets. After turning 16 looks into six catches for 86 yards and a score the previous week, Hopkins put on a garbage time clinic in Los Angeles, drawing a target on five consecutive snaps -- though one was wiped out by a penalty -- on the Texans' final drive. He also got plenty of attention while the game was competitive, but his stat line was lacking until he ripped off gains of 36 and 11 on back-to-back plays on that final drive. Hopkins could suffer if the Texans decide to take a look at T.J. Yates or Josh Johnson, as there's no guarantee another quarterback would force-feed him as shamelessly as Savage does. Assuming he's still the starter, it'll be interesting to see how Savage responds to a Week 11 matchup with a Cardinals defense that presumably will use Patrick Peterson to shadow Hopkins.

  • Hopkins caught six of 16 targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-14 loss to the Colts. Hopkins hauled in a 34-yard score with 6:11 to play in the fourth quarter, then almost helped his team complete the comeback on the final drive but narrowly avoided getting both feet down in the end zone on a 17-yard pass. While Tom Savage is a clear downgrade from Deshaun Watson (knee) under center, Hopkins should still provide plenty of value the rest of the way thanks to his elite ball skills and massive target share.

  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Stuck with Savage
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hopkins is expected to see plenty of volume in the pass game with the Texans turning the keys to the offense in the Week 9 matchup with the Colts over to Tom Savage, who has thrown 34 percent of his career passes in the veteran wideout's direction, Mike Clay of reports. Deshaun Watson's (knee) season-ending ACL tear nonetheless hinders Hopkins' rest-of-season prospects, as Savage is unlikely to post efficiency stats anywhere near what the rookie had been doing. Watson's ability to create big plays with both his arm and feet has played a huge role in Hopkins' seven receiving touchdowns, which is tied with teammate Will Fuller for the NFL lead. While his current mark of 10.9 targets per game could stand strong with Savage under center, Hopkins is unlikely to score a touchdown per game and may struggle to maintain his mark of 8.0 yards per target.

  • Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Explodes for 224 yards
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hopkins caught eight of 11 targets for 224 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 41-38 loss to the Seahawks. Hopkins repeatedly gashed the formidable Seattle secondary, including a 72-yard touchdown on a screen play in the fourth quarter that nearly won his team the game. He recorded just 19 receiving yards in his previous outing, but he led the team in targets, catches and yards in this one as he put up the second-highest yardage total of his career. Now with seven scores through eight games, Hopkins' ascent has mirrored that of rookie phenom Deshaun Watson, who attained the NFL record for most touchdown passes through one's first seven games. As the top target for a historically productive young quarterback, Hopkins should be counted on to continue his bounce-back season next week against the hapless Colts.
