DeAndre Hopkins ran the most routes (651) in the league last season.
He also saw 31.6 percent of the available targets in Houston, the fourth-highest clip in the league. After running the most plays and throwing the ninth-most passes last season, the Texans went out and signed Lamar Miller in free agency and added receiver help with first-rounder Will Fuller and third-rounder Braxton Miller. With both the pace and pass percentage likely to decline and more weapons around him, Hopkins will certainly see a decline in his target totals, but he is still one of the most talented receivers in the league and a sure-fire WR1.

Brock Osweiler said DeAndre Hopkins is a "very unique wide receiver."

"With him, I don't know if there's really anything that's not catchable as long as you put it in bounds," Osweiler continued. "That's very comforting as a quarterback. He's always saying, 'Just throw it up, I'll go get it.'" Osweiler and Hopkins have spent a lot of extra time together this offseason to build chemistry, and both players seem to think the extra work has paid off. Hopkins' target total will almost certainly come down, but he is one of the top wideouts in the league playing with what might be the best quarterback of his career. The sky is the limit.
Jun 7 - 9:31 AM

DeAndre Hopkins says he has "gained a bit of weight" this offseason, and "put on some muscle."

One of Hopkins' offseason priorities was to improve after the catch, and he's apparently determined bulking up is the best course of action. When Hopkins says "a bit of weight," it's probably in the 5-8 pound range, and nothing crazy. Whatever shape Hopkins reports to camp in, he'll be a top-seven fantasy option at receiver.

Texans exercised WR DeAndre Hopkins' fifth-year option for 2017.

It's a no-brainer for the Texans after Hopkins posted career highs last season, finishing top three in the NFL in both catches (111) and yards (1,521). With his 2017 option valued at $7.915 million, Hopkins is signed for $10.3M the next two years. Houston should extend him before the 2017 season.

DeAndre Hopkins wants to spend his entire career in Houston.

"If I can play my whole career here, I would," Hopkins said. "I love this place. This organization took a chance on drafting me. You have to look at that." Technically, Hopkins is entering a contract year, but the Texans will exercise his fifth-year team option for 2017. That's if they don't sign him to an extension first. At very least, Hopkins will be in Houston for the next two years, and likely far longer.
Feb 15 - 2:57 PM

DeAndre Hopkins says one of his offseason priorities is to improve his run after catch.

Hopkins made 2015 highlight reels as a dominant winner of contested catches and one-handed grabs. With only 201 yards after catch, however, Hopkins ranked a lowly 118th in the NFL in that statistic. Hopkins says he considers himself to have "finished last in" yards after catch. It's a reminder that Hopkins may still offer room for significant improvement; he doesn't turn 24 until June.
Feb 13 - 8:22 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 6-of-11 targets for 69 yards in the Texans' Wild Card loss to the Chiefs.

Hopkins led the Texans in targets, but Brian Hoyer was flat-out terrible in possibly the worst playoff performance in NFL history. Hopkins' big catch went for 17 yards on a beautiful sideline grab when he was able to drag his toe in bounds. He also had a long catch called back on offensive pass interference. Hopkins drew a DPI in his favor earlier in the game. Hopkins could've had a much bigger day if Hoyer simply could have made some throws. Hopkins has yet to miss a game in his career and is coming off an insane 111-1,521-11 season with a number of different bottom-barrel quarterbacks. He's due a little over $1.4 million in salary and bonuses in 2016, the final year of his rookie deal. Hopkins is a candidate for an extension before September.
Jan 9 - 8:32 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (hand) is listed as probable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Chiefs.

Hopkins showed up on the injury report several times during the regular season but never missed any game action. Saturday will be no different. Look for him to be shadowed by stud rookie Marcus Peters.
Jan 8 - 2:59 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 7-of-12 targets for 89 yards in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Hopkins finishes his third NFL season with 114 receptions for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's firmly established as a top-five wideout. With both Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Nate Washington (hip) battling injury, Hopkins could be forced to do even more heavy lifting than usual for the Wild Card round.
Jan 3 - 6:43 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien said he has no plans to rest players even if the Texans clinch the AFC South with a Bengals win Monday night.

The Texans will officially win the AFC South if Cincinnati upsets Denver, and would have to have a ton of things go wrong in Week 17 to not secure the division crown. O'Brien isn't going to sit starters either way, however. "I think the most important thing is to win," O'Brien said. "I don't think there's any substitute for winning." DeAndre Hopkins should be a full-go against the Jaguars, and may get Brian Hoyer (concussion) back.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 7-of-11 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Titans.

Hopkins got his 100th catch of the season on a 44-yard grab in the first half, but he made his biggest mark after the break. Nuk dominated Coty Sensabaugh for three catches and a 15-yard touchdown on the opening drive of the second half. The touchdown essentially ended the game, although that did not stop the Texans from adding to the lead on the next drive. Hopkins now sits on 104 receptions, so he will have an outside shot at breaking Andre Johnson’s team record of 115 next week against the Jaguars. Hopkins hung a 10-148-2 line on the Jags in Week 6.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 8-of-11 targets for 94 yards in the Texans' Week 15 win over the Colts.

Hopkins worked mostly against Vontae Davis, but had a 28-yard catch against Darius Butler. He didn't have any red-zone targets, with the Texans only touchdown going to Jaelen Strong. It's still a solid bounceback coming off last week's loss to the Patriots. Hopkins will remain locked in as a WR1 for Week 16 against the Titans.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said the team wants to get DeAndre Hopkins the ball "every week."

"Look, we’re all going to work really hard to get DeAndre the ball. We’re not crazy, we’re not trying to not throw him the football," O'Brien said. "I think there’s a two-fold deal there. We can do a better job. He can do a better job. I think other guys have to step up and make plays and right now people are doubling him quite a bit." After seeing at least 11 targets in every game through the first 11 weeks, Hopkins has not topped 9 in the last three games and saw just six against the Patriots. Hopkins has seen heavy coverage over the last month, but that has been the case most of the season. Hopkins is the type of receiver teams force the ball to regardless of coverage, and he simply has not been given enough chances recently. T.J. Yates, who is expected to start for Brian Hoyer (concussion) this week, peppered Hopkins with 12 targets despite coverage from Darrelle Revis in his only start this season.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 3-of-6 targets for 52 yards in the Texans' Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

Hopkins was shut down by Patriots CB Logan Ryan. He didn’t make his first catch until the Texans’ final drive of the first half, and got most of his yards on one play. Hopkins will be a strong bounce-back candidate for Week 15 against the Colts.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 12:14:00 AM

The Texans added DeAndre Hopkins to their Week 14 injury report after he turned in a "limited" practice Friday due to a hamstring ailment.

Hopkins is listed as probable, however, a designation that by NFL rules means a player is seen as "virtually certain" to be available for his normal role on game day. Hopkins is fully expected to be in the starting lineup Sunday against New England. You can see where "NukDaBomb" falls in Patrick Daugherty's Week 14 fantasy rankings, accessible at the link below.
