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.

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.

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.

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.

According to the Sideline View's Lance Zierlein, Ryan Fitzpatrick and DeAndre Hopkins developed a strong connection during spring practices.

With Andre Johnson holding out in hopes of a trade, Hopkins was about all Fitzpatrick and rookie Tom Savage had to throw to. The second-year wideout has already admitted learning his third offense in three years has "not been easy," but look for Fitzpatrick to pepper Hopkins with simple, short throws that will allow him to rack up YAC. Per PFF, Hopkins had the second-lowest drop rate last season, dropping just one of 53 catchable balls. He has some WR3 appeal.

DeAndre Hopkins said that learning a new scheme all over again has "not been easy."

Hopkins is in his third completely different offense in three seasons. But Bill O'Brien is an offensive guru, one that learned how to fit scheme to player with New England. Look for Hopkins to be targeted on plenty of simple, short throws to hide Ryan Fitzpatrick's weaknesses, giving him low-upside WR3 appeal.

DeAndre Hopkins caught four passes for 35 yards in Week 17 at Tennessee.

The No. 27 overall pick in April's draft had an impressive rookie season but didn't score a touchdown after the Week 8 bye. The Houston offense struggled as a whole, however. Hopkins' rookie year ends with 52 catches for 802 yards and two touchdowns. He was a solid WR3/4 for much of the fantasy season. He'll certainly have a different quarterback throwing him the football in 2014. Depending on who it is, Hopkins has all the talent in the world to produce like a WR2.

DeAndre Hopkins managed one reception for eight yards in the Texans' Week 16 loss to Denver.

We still have high long-term hopes for Hopkins, but "Nuk" has been an indisputable disappointment as a rookie. He'll look to finish the season on a high note against the Titans' tough secondary in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 04:46:00 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 16.

Hopkins played through the ankle injury last week, so his status was never in doubt. Even with Garrett Graham (hamstring) sidelined, he's just a low-end WR4 for the final week of the fantasy playoffs.

DeAndre Hopkins caught three passes for 52 yards in Houston's Week 15 loss to the Colts.

That's about Hopkins' ceiling in the Texans' pop-gun offense. He'll be a high-risk WR4 for the final week of the fantasy playoffs. Hopkins' Dynasty light remains bright.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 06:08:00 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is active for Week 15 against the Colts.

Even with Garrett Graham sidelined, Hopkins is just a low-end WR4 for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 11:54:00 AM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle, questionable) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Hopkins hasn't been productive enough this year to be worth fantasy consideration in fantasy semifinals week. He's a WR4/5 in re-draft leagues.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 03:21:00 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Hopkins is fully expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Colts, where he'll be a WR4.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 05:53:00 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Hopkins should be fine as a WR4 this week against the Colts. He's coming off a three-catch, 76-yard effort on seven targets last week against Jacksonville.
