DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-12 targets for 36 yards in the Texans' Week 7 loss to the Broncos.
Just a nightmare performance from Brock Osweiler. The quarterback play has been the single thing holding Hopkins back this season. This was also a horrible matchup for Hopkins against the Broncos' league-best secondary, but Osweiler didn't give him a chance on a couple deeper shots. Hopkins has seen at least eight targets in all but one game this season, but he's catching just 55.4 percent of them and is well off his pace of 198 targets from last year. Hopkins gets a plus draw with the Lions at home in Week 8, but he needs Osweiler to play much better. It's hard to trust in that. Consider Hopkins more of a WR2/3 moving forward. Oct 25 - 12:08 AM

DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a full practice on Friday.

Hopkins will be all systems go for Monday night's clash with the Broncos.
Oct 21 - 3:32 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Hopkins is expected to play Monday night despite the limited practice. He's a low-end WR2 against Denver's elite secondary.
Oct 20 - 4:37 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 9-of-12 targets for 71 yards in Week 6 against the Colts.

Vontae Davis shut down Hopkins for most of the night. Hopkins didn't have a great game despite the stat line, with four of his catches coming in the final three minutes. He didn't have any competition for targets with Will Fuller not playing any snaps. Hopkins will be a tough sell as more than a WR2 for Week 7 against Denver.
Oct 17 - 12:47 AM

Speaking Thursday, Colts DC Ted Monachino said Vontae Davis will not shadow DeAndre Hopkins.

Patrick Robinson has been struggling mightily, but the Colts want to leave Davis on the right side of the field. It's the best possible news for Hopkins, who was shadowed in Week 5 by Xavier Rhodes. Although a boost for Hopkins' matchup, he's still just a WR2 with Brock Osweiler's game in crisis.
Oct 13 - 1:48 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-9 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown Week 5 against the Vikings.

Lost in blanket coverage by Xavier Rhodes most of the game, Hopkins was held without a catch on three targets in the first half. He did get loose for three quick catches in the third quarter, but he was otherwise quiet before a meaningless one-yard touchdown late in the fourth. He did easily beat Rhodes inside for the score. With Brock Osweiler struggling, Hopkins has now failed to top 60 yards in 4-of-5 games to open the season. Still, he will be on the WR1 borderline next week against the Colts.
Oct 9 - 4:32 PM

Coach Bill O'Brien blamed DeAndre Hopkins' slow Week 4 game on double teams from the Titans.

Hopkins has failed to clear 60 yards in three of the Texans' first four games while being outplayed by rookie Will Fuller. O'Brien still heaped praise on Hopkins, saying he has "developed as a leader and become a better route runner." Hopkins is now the squeaky wheel, although being the squeaky wheel against the Vikings might not carry much weight. At least for the time being, Hopkins is better off viewed as a WR2 than a WR1 play.
Oct 3 - 3:59 PM

DeAndre Hopkins snagged just one-of-six targets for four yards Sunday in the Texans' Week 4 win over the Titans.

Hopkins wasn’t even targeted until late in the first half. True to form, Brock Osweiler forced it into tight coverage and was intercepted by Jason McCourty on the play. Osweiler did the same thing in the third quarter, attempting to connect with Hopkins despite smothering coverage by Perrish Cox, who came up with the interception. Nuk’s first and only catch came with 8:57 remaining in the fourth quarter. Hopkins also had a frustrating game in Week 3, hauling in just four-of-eight targets in a blowout loss to New England. It doesn’t get any easier with Houston traveling to Minnesota for Week 5. Nuk will be a back-end WR1 for that matchup.
Oct 2 - 5:12 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 4-of-8 targets for 56 yards in Houston's Week 3 loss to the Patriots.

Lined up against Logan Ryan, Hopkins was winning against tight coverage, but Brock Osweiler had a nightmare of a game under center. Osweiler's best throws were all to Hopkins, who made a number of slick grabs. Hopkins has unreal body control. With 10 days to assess what went wrong in New England, Hopkins and the Texans should bounce back against the Titans in Week 4. Hopkins is a locked-in WR1.
Sep 22 - 11:53 PM

DeAndre Hopkins hauled in 7-of-11 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against the Chiefs.

Hopkins was a monster Sunday. His touchdown came on a play where he threw down Marcus Peters on the right sideline before barreling into the end zone in the first quarter, and he made excellent contested grabs all game. Hopkins should have had a second touchdown when he made an over the shoulder catch while being tripped in the end zone, but he was (incorrectly) ruled out of bounds. After being out-targeted by Will Fuller in Week 1, Hopkins took back over as the No. 1 option against Kansas City. Both should have plenty of big games this season.
Sep 18 - 4:23 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-8 targets for 54 yards and a touchdown Week 1 against the Bears.

In a somewhat shocking turn, Hopkins took a backseat to first-round rookie Will Fuller, who turned 11 targets into 107 yards and a touchdown. Despite the explosion from the rookie, Hopkins saw plenty of opportunities and had a second touchdown bounce off his hands in the fourth quarter. Hopkins will remain a locked-in WR1 next week against the Chiefs.
Sep 11 - 5:43 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 2-of-2 targets for 31 yards in the Texans' third preseason game.

The Texans only gave him 13 snaps with Brock Osweiler because they wanted to give Jaelen Strong a look with the ones. Hopkins looked sharp, as did rookie bookend Will Fuller, whose blinding speed down the sideline should create more space for "Nuk" to work underneath. Hopkins is a locked-in WR1.
Aug 28 - 6:34 PM

Texans owner Bob McNair said the team will "deal with" DeAndre Hopkins' contract "at the proper time."

"I think it's in his best interest for him to be here," McNair said of Nuk's return to camp. "We take care of our players and we'll take care of him." Considering one of the best receivers in the league is scheduled to earn just $9.36 million over the next two years combined, the proper time to take care of him is now. GM Rick Smith typically will not negotiate with players who have more than a year left on their current deal, but he made an exception for J.J. Watt. He should make another for Hopkins.
Aug 2 - 7:53 AM

DeAndre Hopkins has decided to end his holdout and will report to Texans camp on Monday.

He'll hold a press conference Monday afternoon. In a statement released to the media, Hopkins said he was "disappointed" the Texans failed to honor his contract demands and that GM Rick Smith refused to negotiate a long-term deal. Hopkins did state he is committed to helping the team win. Hopkins is owed a $445,000 roster bonus on August 4 and is back in position to collect it. The 27th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Hopkins is under contract for the next two seasons. He will earn just $1.445 million this year, including the bonus.
Jul 31 - 2:56 PM

ESPN's Field Yates reports holdout WR DeAndre Hopkins is owed a $445,000 roster bonus on August 4.

Hopkins will not receive the bonus if he is still on the reserve/did not report list. With the potential to lose almost a third of the money he is owed this season, this bonus could act as a deadline of sorts for the hold out. That said, Hopkins has already shown he is serious by risking a $40,000-a-day fine for not showing up. Set to earn just $9.36 million over the next two seasons, Hopkins is rightfully upset with his contract. The Texans should do right by their best playmaker.
