DeAndre Hopkins caught one pass for 29 yards in the Texans' third preseason game.
Hopkins caught the first completion of the game, whipping Saints top CB Keenan Lewis down the right sideline for a beautiful Willie Mays-ish over-the-shoulder catch, gaining 29 yards. Hopkins was robbed of a first-quarter touchdown when officials ruled he bobbled the ball on the way down from a would-be 19-yard score. Although it occurred in a tiny sample size, Brian Hoyer and Hopkins appeared to flash chemistry in this one. Aug 30 - 5:28 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (wrist surgery) is participating at Texans camp.

Hopkins sat out OTAs after February surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist. He posted 76-1,210-6 last year with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and Ryan Mallett at quarterback. Now Andre Johnson is gone, opening up even more targets for Hopkins. "I'm in a role where I should catch more balls. ... I'm going to demand the ball and make them think I'm the guy."

DeAndre Hopkins (wrist surgery) has not participated in OTAs.

This was expected after Hopkins had February surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist. Coach Bill O'Brien said Monday that Hopkins should be ready for training camp, "but isn't sure exactly when." The injury isn't a major concern for Hopkins' 2015 fantasy outlook, but is something worth monitoring.

Texans Coach Bill O'Brien already considers DeAndre Hopkins "one of the best in the league."

O'Brien has big things in mind for his clear-cut No. 1 wideout. Hopkins broke out for 76-1,210-6 last year despite the presence of Andre Johnson and some rancid quarterback play. Now Johnson is gone and the QB room is a little more stable with Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett. Not yet 23 years old -- he turns in June -- Hopkins offers mid-range fantasy WR1 upside for 2015.
May 7 - 11:48 AM

Prior to requesting a trade/release from the Texans, Andre Johnson was told his role would be reduced in 2015.

The Texans are making DeAndre Hopkins their No. 1 wideout; Johnson didn't want to stick around as a complementary player. So he's a goner, leaving Hopkins dripping with upside entering his third NFL season. The 2013 No. 27 overall pick already had a bit of a breakout last year, posting 76-1,210-6 despite constant quarterback issues. Now "Nuk" can expect a significant jump in targets per game after getting 7.9 in 2014. He's primed for top-ten WR1 production.

DeAndre Hopkins underwent wrist surgery after the season.

Hopkins revealed in a radio interview that the operation repaired a torn ligament. He had a rod and pin inserted into his wrist. Hopkins had the pin and rod removed on Saturday, and he plans to resume football activities "in a couple of weeks." Still only 22 years old, Hopkins broke out in 2014 and has room to grow. He'll likely be a third-round pick in 2015 re-draft leagues.
Feb 22 - 5:17 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 2-of-6 targets for five yards in the Texans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Don't let the back-to-back disappointing weeks cloud what was a truly fine breakout sophomore season from Hopkins, who finishes the year with a 76-1,210-6 line. Hopkins has passed Andre Johnson as the No. 1 receiver in Houston and the arrow is pointing up. There's unlimited upside potential here, as Hopkins won't turn 23 until June. He wins at all areas of the field. Hopkins can run deep, sky up and catch a ball over the top of cornerbacks, and use his big body to box out defenders on the sideline. Once the Texans find a quarterback, Hopkins will be more consistent. He should be an early-round pick in 2015 fantasy drafts.

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.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:36:00 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.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 10:55:00 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.

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.

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.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 05:50:00 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.
