DeAndre Hopkins caught 2-of-7 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown Week 13 against the Packers.
Hopkins ran a bad route on one of this first-half targets, but the other two were late sideline throws by Brock Osweiler that probably should have been picked off. He did record a catch early in the third quarter, but he dropped another pass that should have been a long gain, although the throw was slightly behind him. He was on his way to another terrible game, but Hopkins saved it with a 44-yard, catch-and-run touchdown in garbage time. Even with the Colts on tap, Hopkins is nothing more than a WR3 in this offense. Dec 4 - 4:53 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-10 targets for 70 yards Week 12 against the Chargers.

Hopkins was quiet in the first half, but the Texans force fed him targets coming out of the break. He had two quick catches on the first drive after halftime and ended up easily leading the team in targets. Hopkins still did not manage to post a big fantasy day and was eaten up by Casey Hayward on a couple plays, but he did top 70 yards for the first time since Week 6 and only the third time this season. He could have more success against the Packers' struggling secondary next week.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-6 targets for 58 yards in the Texans' Week 11 loss to the Raiders.

Hopkins was the subject of one of the game's biggest plays. Early in the first half, the refs ruled he stepped out of bounds on a 24-yard catch-and-run that maybe should have been a 60-yard touchdown. On further replays, it was questionable at best that he actually stepped out of bounds. The play wasn't reviewable because the whistle had blown. Hopkins hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 5. He's settled in as a WR3 ahead of Week 12 against San Diego.
Nov 22 - 12:33 AM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-13 targets for 48 yards Week 10 against the Jaguars.

Hopkins was the clear No. 1 with Will Fuller out and easily paced the team with 13 targets, but he did not have much success in a game where Brock Osweiler managed just 99 yards. Able to produce with Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett, T.J. Yates, and Brandon Weeden under center last year, Hopkins has struggled to top 50 yards with Osweiler running the show. He will be a low-end WR2 Monday night against an improving Raiders defense.
Nov 14 - 7:28 AM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 4-of-7 targets for 44 yards in the Texans' Week 8 win over the Lions.

This has become the expectation for Hopkins with Brock Osweiler as his quarterback. Hopkins made a sick, one-handed catch on a poorly thrown ball over the middle, but was tackled at the one-yard line, setting up Lamar Miller's touchdown on the next play. Hopkins was also the target on Osweiler's lone interception, a terrible pass thrown way behind Hopkins. A year after posting a 111-1,521-11 line, Hopkins is on pace for a mediocre 80-868-6 line. It's no fault of his own. Blame Osweiler. Hopkins is unlikely to turn it around after the bye week in Jacksonville.
Oct 30 - 5:04 PM

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.

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.
