Hopkins caught three of four targets for 55 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-14 win over the Browns. The veteran receiver still has yet to see double-digit targets in a game this year, with Sunday's paltry four tying his season low, but Hopkins still had little trouble putting together a huge fantasy performance. He has six TDs through six games, already matching his total from 2020, but the Cardinals' passing game might not need to do much in Week 7 at home against the struggling Texans, which would limit Hopkins' volume again.
Hopkins (illness) practiced fully Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game in Cleveland, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Hopkins didn't get on the practice field prior to Friday as he dealt with an illness, which almost certainly was unrelated to COVID-19 considering his standing heading into the weekend. He'll face off Week 6 against a Browns defense that has conceded 181.6 total yards per game (15th most in the NFL) and five touchdowns to wide receivers in five contests this season.
Hopkins (illness) wasn't in attendance for Thursday's practice and is expected to go down as a non-participant on the Cardinals' report, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. Hopkins has previously received maintenance days in practice earlier this season while tending to a rib injury, but it's an ailment that will keep him off the field for the second day in a row to begin Week 6. The Cardinals haven't suggested that Hopkins' illness is related to COVID-19, so at this stage, there's still reason for fantasy managers to expect the standout wideout to be ready to suit up Sunday in Cleveland. Ideally though, Hopkins would return to practice in some fashion Friday to clear up any concern about his status.
Hopkins (illness) missed practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. The Cardinals haven't indicated that Hopkins' illness is related to COVID-19, but if not, he shouldn't be at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Browns. Through five weeks, Hopkins has produced a 23-312-4 receiving line on 34 targets.
Hopkins caught six of nine targets for 87 yards and one touchdown against San Francisco on Sunday. The nine targets occurred on just 28 targeted pass attempts by Kyler Murray, meaning Hopkins drew more than 32 percent of Arizona's targets in the game. Murray threw for a modest 239 yards, and as a result Hopkins' box score was contained somewhat despite him playing at a dominant level. Hopkins will look to keep producing in a high-stakes Week 6 road game against the Browns.
