DeAndre Hopkins (wrist) has been limited in practice this week.
Hopkins' status for Week 17 isn't in doubt, but he's battled some wear and tear of late as a sophomore. Playing through an ankle injury last week, Hopkins posted a 5-38 line on 12 targets with the erratic Case Keenum under center. Hopkins and the Texans end the regular season with the Jaguars.

DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 38 yards in the Texans' Week 16 win over the Ravens.

He was targeted 12 times. But with Case Keenum struggling with inaccuracy, Hopkins couldn't get anything going down field. Keenum routinely failed to leave any room for Hopkins to make plays on the sidelines. Hopkins entered the day highly questionable with an ankle injury, but it didn't appear to bother him whatsoever. Hopkins and the Texans host the Jaguars in Week 17.
Dec 21 - 5:36 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is officially active for Week 16 against the Ravens.

He didn't practice all week, so we don't feel great about Hopkins. Pair that with the Texans' starting QB situation, and Hopkins is a WR3. But he should see decent targets against an injury-ravaged Ravens cornerback group. Inactive for the Texans are QB Tom Savage, TE Garrett Graham, ILB Mike Mohamed, LG Xavier Su'a-Filo, WR DeVier Posey, S Josh Aubrey, and OLB Jason Ankrah.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DeAndre Hopkins (questionable, ankle) is "good to go" Sunday against the Ravens.

Hopkins missed practice all week. His activity takes some air out of Andre Johnson's balloon as a Week 16 sleeper. The Texans are facing a Ravens defense capable of dominating with its pass rush, and are starting Case Keenum at quarterback. Hopkins is a low-floor WR3 play in fantasy championship week.
Dec 21 - 10:55 AM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) missed his third straight day of practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Coach Bill O'Brien continues to call Hopkins a game-time decision, but it's not looking good for him to play against the Ravens. It's probably just as well with Case Keenum at quarterback and Andre Johnson (concussion, probable) returning to siphon targets. Hopkins would've been a high-risk WR3 play.
Dec 19 - 4:12 PM

The Texans consider DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) a game-time decision for Week 16.

Hopkins missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices. The "game-time decision" label should be taken with a grain of salt, as Texans coach Bill O'Brien fancies himself a spymaster, and would apply the GTD tag to a player even if they were only battling a cold. For now, owners need to sit tight and wait for more information to emerge. A back-up plan is definitely in order.
Dec 18 - 4:08 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Hopkins played all 72 snaps in Sunday's loss, so it's not clear when he suffered the injury. With Andre Johnson returning this week and Thad Lewis or Case Keenum expected to start, Hopkins should be avoided as a fantasy option.
Dec 17 - 5:50 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Indy.

Hopkins saw a season-high 13 targets, a predictable number once Andre Johnson (concussion) was ruled out. No other Texan had more than four targets. The problem was that Hopkins saw Vontae Davis' side too often and Tom Savage was overwhelmed in a relief role. A Week 16 matchup against the Ravens is tasty on paper, but Johnson's likely return and Savage's woes make Hopkins a risky WR3 play despite Sunday's volume.
Dec 14 - 5:16 PM

DeAndre Hopkins secured 4-of-6 targets for 49 yards in the Texans' Week 14 win over the Jaguars.

Ryan Fitzpatrick only needed 13 completions for the Texans to defeat the Jags 27-13, so none of Houston's pass catchers were productive in this one. Hopkins will be a better play in Week 15 against the Colts. Andre Johnson suffered a concussion in the first half of Sunday's win and will be questionable to play.
Dec 7 - 4:21 PM

DeAndre Hopkins smoked the Titans for nine catches, 238 yards, and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 13 victory.

Securing all nine of his targets, Hopkins threw up a 40-burger on FanDuel. The big-play threat in Houston's receiver corps, Hopkins dusted Titans RCB Blidi Wreh-Wilson for a 58-yard touchdown in the second quarter and had a 5-117-1 receiving line by the half. "Nuk" put a bow on a dominant performance with a 37-yard TD late in the third quarter. As Jason McCourty followed Andre all over the field in this one, Hopkins got to feast on Wreh-Wilson, who's been a whipping boy all season. Keep riding Hopkins as an upside WR2 when the Texans take on the Jaguars in Week 14.
Nov 30 - 4:42 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-9 targets for 39 yards in the Texans' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.

On a quiet day for Houston's wideout corps, Hopkins reeled in a long second-half catch only to have the reception overturned on replay. Hopkins has been a WR2/3 in fantasy all year, but Houston's consistently erratic quarterback play has failed him at times. The Texans will take on the Titans next.
Nov 23 - 5:13 PM

DeAndre Hopkins secured 4-of-8 targets for 80 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Browns.

As Andre Johnson was shadowed by Joe Haden all over the field, Hopkins had the best matchup in Houston's pass-catcher corps, taking on Buster Skrine and K'Waun Williams. Hopkins showed his explosive ability on an early 41-yard reception, but was otherwise bottled up and the Texans piled up a season-high 54 rushing attempts as Mallett only needed to throw for 211 yards for the victory. Keep trotting out Hopkins as a WR2/3 when the Texans face the Bengals next.
Nov 16 - 5:35 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught six passes for 115 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

Through the first six games of the season, Hopkins averaged 5.5 targets per game. Over the last three, he's seen nine, nine and 11 targets. The talented Hopkins is predictably turning that increased usage into production, as he's now had at least five catches and 95 yards in three straight outings. The highlight of this one came when Bill O'Brien creatively lined Hopkins up in the slot, getting him 1-on-1 with Eagles backup S Earl Wolff. Hopkins easily won the matchup for a 7-yard TD catch as the Texans head into a bye.
Nov 2 - 4:13 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 95 yards in the Texans' Week 8 win over the Titans.

Hopkins was targeted 11 times compared to 12 for Andre Johnson. Hopkins picked up chunk yards on all of his grabs, and was stopped at the five-yard line on one grab where Ryan Fitzpatrick almost got Hopkins decapitated with a soft throw that took forever to get to his receiver. Arian Foster scored from five yards out on the next play. Hopkins gets another plus matchup as a high-upside WR3 against the Eagles in Week 9. Through eight games, Hopkins is on pace for a 72-1,138-6 receiving line.
Oct 26 - 5:24 PM

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.
