DeAndre Hopkins caught 6-of-9 targets for 65 yards in the Texans' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.
Same as in these teams’ previous two meetings, the Patriots used Logan Ryan to guard Hopkins in man coverage and Ryan won. The Texans often moved Hopkins into the slot, but Ryan chased him there and allowed Hopkins zero separation with occasional safety and linebacker help. Hopkins’ biggest play was a 19-yard reception in the third quarter with the Texans backed up in their own territory. Ultimately, there was no way the Patriots were letting Hopkins beat them in this game. Still only 24 years old, Hopkins enters a contract year in 2017. Jan 14 - 11:58 PM

DeAndre Hopkins (knee) isn't listed on the Texans' final injury report for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Patriots.

Nuk is ready to go after putting in a limited week of practice. He reeled in four-of-eight targets for 56 yards when he faced the Patriots back in Week 3. Logan Ryan was asked to shadow him in that game.

DeAndre Hopkins said his knee is "excellent."

Hopkins tweaked his knee in last week's Wild Card win over Oakland, but his status for this week's Divisional game against New England was never in question. Nuk was shadowed by Logan Ryan when these teams squared off in Week 3. A similar approach could be in play Saturday.

DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Hopkins picked up the injury in Houston's Wild Card win. He should be fine for Saturday's game with the Patriots. Hopkins will see a lot of Malcolm Butler.

DeAndre Hopkins caught 5-of-9 targets for 67 yards and one touchdown in the Texans' Wild Card win over the Raiders.

Hopkins did all of his damage in the first half with Brock Osweiler only completing two passes after the break. Most of his production came on a 38-yard sideline shot over the top of David Amerson before scoring a two-yard touchdown on a quick slant against Sean Smith just a couple plays later. Osweiler has struggled badly with deep balls all year, but the two were able to hook up on one. Hopkins will either get the Chiefs or Patriots on the road next week.
Jan 7 - 8:30 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 7-of-11 targets for 123 yards in the Texans' Week 17 loss to the Titans.

Even with Brock Osweiler attempting 40 of the Texans' 48 passes, Hopkins looked revived for the second time in three weeks. He still finishes the regular season with an extremely disappointing 954 yards despite today's season-high total. The Texans won't have much of a prayer in the Wild Card round without a big game from their best offensive player.
Jan 1 - 5:49 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 3-of-6 targets for 43 yards in Week 16 against the Bengals.

Hopkins was held catchless in first half. He led Houston in receiving on a night Tom Savage threw for 176 yards. Savage wasn’t an upgrade for Hopkins after he saw 17 targets last week. Hopkins has an easier matchup against Tennessee in Week 17.

DeAndre Hopkins registered eight catches for 87 yards on 17 targets Sunday in the Texans' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

He lives! The 87 yards were Hopkins’ most since Week 2. Nuk had a tough matchup against Jaguars rookie Jalen Ramsey but played him to a draw, winning the second half after mostly being bottled up during the first 30 minutes. Hopkins left plenty of points on the table. Most glaring was a touchdown he probably should have reeled in but lost on his way to the ground during the third quarter. But the targets kept on coming and Hopkins still showed explosiveness when given the opportunity. Nuk is still an excellent receiver but has been trapped in an embarrassingly stagnant offense this year. Tom Savage probably isn’t the long-term answer in Houston, but he certainly outplayed Brock Osweiler on Sunday. That should give Hopkins owners reason for optimism next week against the Bengals.

DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is no longer on the Texans' injury report for Week 15.

Hopkins turned in a limited week of practice. There was never any doubt about his status for Week 15. Hopkins had the year of his life in 2015 but has taken a huge step back this year with overmatched Brock Osweiler under center. Consider him a WR3 until further notice.

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

The Texans just seem to be managing Hopkins' reps, though it would be nice to see him get in a full session on Friday. With Brock Osweiler apparently not going anywhere, Hopkins remains mired in WR3ville.

DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's the first time he's shown up on the injury report since October. Hopkins played his usual snaps last week and we're guessing he'll be fine for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. With underachieving Brock Osweiler at quarterback, Nuk has settled in as a low-upside WR3 in fantasy.
Wed, Dec 14, 2016 05:59:00 PM

DeAndre Hopkins caught 2-of-4 passes for 33 yards in Week 14.

Hopkins led the Texans in receiving in a game Brock Osweiler passed for 147 yards. His only notable play was a 22-yard catch in traffic. Hopkins has taken a huge step back this year with Osweiler this year. He's a WR3 for Week 15.

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.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 04:53:00 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.
