DeAndre Hopkins caught six passes for 108 yards in the Texans' Week 7 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.
Hopkins and Andre Johnson each saw a team-high nine targets. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw it to whichever receiver was working against embattled Steelers CB Cortez Allen. Hopkins' biggest play of the night was a 32-yard catch in the fourth quarter, but he ended up losing a fumble on the play, crushing the Texans' hopes of a comeback. Hopkins is more of a boom-or-bust WR3 than WR2. He'll have a plus matchup on the road against the Titans in Week 8. Oct 21 - 12:16 AM

DeAndre Hopkins (hand) is probable for Week 7.

The Texans listed Hopkins on the injury report, but his status was never in doubt. He'll be a WR3 for Monday night against the Steelers.
Oct 18 - 3:54 PM

DeAndre Hopkins is listed on the Week 7 injury report with a hand issue, but is practicing in full.

Hopkins must have tweaked something in last week's loss to the Colts. It won't affect his WR3 status for Week 7.
Oct 16 - 5:22 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught just 1-of-2 targets for 12 yards in Houston's Week 6 loss to the Colts.

Hopkins' missed connection could have been classified as a third-drop drop by a harsh grader, but it wasn't a ball that had to be caught. Two targets were obviously Hopkins' fewest of the season, but he's now averaging just 5.5 looks through the Texans' first six games. That's not nearly enough to keep up as a WR2, and barely even enough to be a WR3. Hopkins will look to get more involved in a nice Week 7 matchup with the Steelers.
Oct 10 - 12:33 AM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 6-of-6 targets for 63 yards in Houston's Week 5 loss to the Cowboys.

Hopkins has now cleared 60 yards in 4-of-5 games despite drawing more than six looks only once. His three touchdowns have delighted fantasy owners, but his usage remains that of a boom-or-bust WR3, and not a WR2. Hopkins and the Texans host Vontae Davis and the Colts on a short week for Week 6.
Oct 5 - 5:18 PM

DeAndre Hopkins had five catches for 64 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 4 win over Buffalo.

Hopkins beat Corey Graham for a 35-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He finished with just six targets despite Andre Johnson missing time with an ankle injury. Hopkins is on pace for a 72/1,124/12 line through four games and will remain a WR3 with a matchup against the Cowboys in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 6:03 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien said "we need to do a better job of getting [DeAndre Hopkins] the ball."

"He's a really, really good young player who has an excellent future," O'Brien said. Through three weeks, Hopkins has turned a meager 19 catches into 13-227-2. He's not going to pass Andre Johnson (27 targets) on the target totem pole this year, but he's certainly an ascending player and with serious playmaking ability. Hopkins will be a WR3 in Sunday's home game against the Bills.
Sep 25 - 8:34 AM

DeAndre Hopkins caught six passes for 116 yards in the Texans' Week 3 loss to the Giants.

He was targeted nine times on the day. Hopkins could have had a much bigger day, but he had an incredible 53-yard catch called back on an illegal formation penalty. Hopkins might be putting himself into the WR3 mix, but we're more comfortable with him in the WR4 range. He has a plus matchup at home against the Bills in Week 4. Hopkins is clearly the No. 2 or 3 option in the pass game.
Sep 21 - 5:15 PM

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) returned to practice on Friday.

Hopkins missed Thursday's practice with the illness, but was never expected to miss the Texans' matchup with the Giants. He is a high-upside WR4 this week.
Sep 20 - 9:47 AM

DeAndre Hopkins missed Thursday's practice with illness, but is in no danger of missing Week 3.

Hopkins will be a high-upside WR4 against the Giants.
Sep 18 - 5:07 PM

DeAndre Hopkins secured 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 2 win over the Raiders.

Hopkins' TD came on a back-shoulder throw by Ryan Fitzpatrick on the right side of the end zone. The sophomore wideout has two touchdowns through two games, but that's an unsustainable pace, and Hopkins' usage has been that of no more than a lower-end WR3. He'll be a dicey fantasy play against the Giants next week.
Sep 14 - 7:46 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught four passes for 89 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Redskins.

Late in the second quarter, Hopkins lined up in the slot and the Redskins simply forgot about him. He ran uncovered down the field, caught a can of corn from Ryan Fitzpatrick, made Bacarri Rambo miss and waltzed for a 76-yard score. Still, we didn't see anything that made us think Hopkins' breakout is coming this year. Fitzpatrick is a game manager and Andre Johnson (nine targets compared to five for Hopkins) isn't going away.
Sep 7 - 4:28 PM

WR DeAndre Hopkins caught only two of his six targets for 18 yards in the Texans' third preseason game.

Camp reports on Hopkins have been glowing, but he has struggled to transfer that success to the field this preseason. Hopkins talent is unquestionable, but he is limited by the quarterback situation in Houston. Hopkins has four catches for 37 yards (9.25 YPR) through two preseason games.
Aug 24 - 12:35 AM

DeAndre Hopkins has "starred" and is catching "nearly everything" at Texans camp.

John Harris of the Texans' website notes Hopkins is "ready for the next step." Reports on Hopkins have been glowing all offseason and into the summer, especially with Andre Johnson missing all of spring and much of camp with a hamstring injury, but the re-draft appeal isn't all that high with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback. Hopkins could conceivably be third or fourth in line for targets.
Aug 6 - 4:50 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien said DeAndre Hopkins is "much improved" from when OTAs opened.

It's a good sign that Hopkins has caught on quickly to the new scheme. "He's a very hard worker. ... He's a guy that really, in our opinion, gets better and better everyday," O'Brien said. Hopkins has front-line talent, but we're skeptical he'll get to flash it this year with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the controls and Andre Johnson gobbling up targets. There's more Dynasty than re-draft appeal here.
