DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

Colts shut down DeAndre Hopkins in Wild Card Round.

Hopkins caught five passes (on ten targets) for 37 yards in the Texans' playoff loss to the Colts. Pierre Desir shadowed Hopkins throughout the game and did an excellent job of basically taking the All-Pro receiver out of the game. Hopkins nearly had a touchdown at the end of the first half, though, as he was open on an in-breaking route that Deshaun Watson threw low. Also, Hopkins injured his shoulder at the end of the first half, but he'll be fine for the start of offseason training. Hopkins will go in the first or second round of all fantasy drafts this summer.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches 12 passes in Week 17.

Hopkins gained 147 yards on his 12 receptions against the Jaguars, as cornerback Jalen Ramsey simply couldn't hang with him throughout the game (and Deshaun Watson made some good throws to make things easier on his receiver). Hopkins' regular season ends with 115 receptions for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns, as he lived up to the high-floor, high-upside billing that made him a first-round pick in most fantasy drafts. Look for Hopkins to be heavily targeted in the postseason, starting this Saturday versus Indy.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes over 100 yards against the Eagles.

Hopkins caught nine passes for 104 yards in the Texans' Week 16 loss. As usual, Hopkins made spectacular catches—mainly working at the sideline. He did have his first drop of the season, ruining what might've been a perfect season if he can go without a drop in Week 17. Hopkins has a tough matchup with the Jags to conclude the regular season, but he obviously must remain in fantasy lineups with titles on the line.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

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

Despite Hopkins being listed as questionable heading into today, there was no concern about his status against the Eagles. As usual, Hopkins is a safe WR1 option with fantasy titles on the line.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is listed as questionable to face the Eagles.

This would likely be a probable tag if the NFL still offered that as an injury designation. It would be a major surprise if Hopkins doesn't suit up for Week 16, but his status will be official by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes for 10/170/2 line against the Jets.

Hopkins was most of the offense for Houston, as he scored a 45-yard touchdown in the first half and then the game-winner from 14 yards away in the fourth quarter. New York implemented a lot of single-high safety coverage on Saturday, and Deshaun Watson took advantage of the one-on-one matchups for Hopkins. The Eagles will have a difficult time containing the star receiver next week, and he remains an obvious WR1.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores in loss to the Colts.

Hopkins caught four passes for 36 yards, including a seven-yard touchdown on the team's final offensive possession. Overall, the Colts did an excellent job containing Houston's top playmaker, but Hopkins has slowed down in good matchups over the past few weeks. We'll see if the 26-year-old can get back on track next Saturday against the Jets. Keep him in lineups as a solid WR1.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes for 91 yards in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Hopkins saw a team-high 12 targets, but Houston didn't need to throw much as they led 23-0 at the half. Already the owner of an 80/1,115/8 line on the season, Hopkins will have a chance to boost his numbers next week in a big AFC South battle against the Colts, who he hung 169 yards and a score against earlier this year. Deshaun Watson's favorite target should remain an excellent WR1 the rest of the way.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 74 yards in Monday night's win over the Titans.

Hopkins was targeted a team-high six times and led the Texans in both receptions and receiving yards, but Demaryius Thomas caught both of Deshaun Watson's touchdown passes, which led to a somewhat modest night. The All-Pro receiver should bounce back next week against the Browns, and he remains an every-week, matchup-proof WR1.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores against the Redskins.

Hopkins got free against what appeared to be a busted coverage in the red zone, and he made a nice lunging catch on a laser from Deshaun Watson down the sideline. Overall, Hopkins had five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown along with a lost fumble in the Week 11 win. This makes it five straight weeks with a touchdown and eight total for Hopkins this season. He's obviously a great WR1 option next week against a Titans team he had a 6/110/1 line against in Week 2.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes over 100 yards in win over the Broncos.

Hopkins caught ten passes (on 12 targets) for 105 yards, including a 16-yard touchdown reception in the first half. The 26-year-old is already up to a 63/894/7 line as Houston enters the bye week, and he will obviously be a matchup-proof WR1 the rest of the way, even if Demaryius Thomas and Keke Coutee get more involved. The Redskins are next up on the schedule in Week 11.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores twice in win over the Dolphins.

Hopkins was held in check for most of the night, but he broke out in the second half, finishing with six receptions (on seven targets) for 82 yards and two touchdowns. The first score came on a busted coverage form 49 yards out, and the second was an easy slant at the goal line to put Houston up 42-23 to win their fifth game in a row. Hopkins also had an unbelievable one-handed grab that was called but due to a push off to gain separation, but it was amazing nonetheless. The 26-year-old is on pace for a 106/1,578/12 line at the season's midway point, and he's obviously an elite WR1 the rest of the way, including next Sunday in Denver.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores against the Jaguars.

Hopkins was targeted eight times against Jalen Ramsey and company, catching three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a ten-yard slant (against Ramsey) where he went up and got a high pass, and Hopkins also had a great one-handed catch down the sideline for 31 yards in the Week 7 win. Hopkins gets another difficult matchup against Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard this Thursday, but he's too god and gets too many targets to leave out of fantasy lineups.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores in win over the Bills.

Hopkins caught five passes for 63 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown reception from the slot in the first quarter. Houston's top offensive weapon did battle with Tre'Davious White and was mostly held in check (even the score was a clear push off), so fantasy owners should be happy with the production. Things won't get easier next Sunday against the Jaguars—especially after they were just blown out in Dallas—so Hopkins is more of a WR2 than WR1 for Week 7.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes over 150 yards in Texans' win.

Hopkins was targeted a team-high 13 times against the Cowboys, catching nine passes for 151 yards including a clutch 49-yard catch-and-run—with a couple of spin moves—in overtime to help set up the Texans for a game-winning field goal. He did lose a fumble in Houston territory, but he made up for it later. Hopkins has a tough matchup with Bills shutdown corner Tre'Davious White, but Hopkins is too good to bench in fantasy lineups; also, Hopkins often gets away with using his hands at the top of routes, and White is a sticky corner that stays on the hip of opposing receivers, so that might be a recipe for success for Hopkins if the officials don't call push-offs.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (thumb/ankle/hamstring) remains limited in practice.

Until further notice, just assume Hopkins will be limited in practice throughout the year. But he's played every week, and there's no reason to believe he'll miss any time with these ailments.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes off against the Colts.

Hopkins was targeted 12 times in Houston's Week 4 overtime win, catching ten passes for 169 yards and a touchdown. The score was a five-yarder, and it makes it nine touchdowns in 11 career games with Deshaun Watson at quarterback for Hopkins. Hopkins is currently on a 120/1,772/8 pace, and he obviously must remain in fantasy lineups for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (thumb/ankle/hamstring) is officially active against the Colts.

It would have been a major surprise if Hopkins was inactive with his team trying to get its first win of the season. You can fire Hopkins up as a WR1 for Week 4.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (thumb/ankle/hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 4.

While Hopkins is listed on the injury report with three different ailments, we don't think it's serious enough that he'll miss Sunday's game against the Colts. The Texans are attempting to avoid an 0-4 hole and could use their top receiver on the field. You should be able to insert Hopkins into lineups as a great WR1, but check back in on Sunday morning to make sure he's active.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (thumb/ankle/hamstring) was again limited in practice.

Hopkins is likely headed for another questionable tag this week, but it would be a surprise if he's not out there on Sunday for the 0-3 Texans. We'll update you with Hopkins' game status when it's released sometime tomorrow.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins was limited in practice.

Hopkins doesn’t appear to be in danger of missing Week 4, but he’s listed on the practice report with thumb, ankle, and hamstring injuries. We’ll update you on Hopkons’ practice status tomorrow.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches six passes in Week 3.

Hopkins was targeted ten times against the Giants, gaining 86 yards on his six receptions. The star receiver has at least 78 yards in each of his first three games, and he offers among the highest floors in a Week 4 matchup against the Colts.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes over 100 yards with a score in Week 2.

Hopkins was targeted a team-high 11 times versus the Titans, catching six passes for 110 yards and a touchdown in the loss. The touchdown was on a 28-yard pass over the middle that Hopkins turned up field and into the end zone after a Deshaun Watson scramble. Hopkins is obviously a strong WR1 option for Week 3 against the Giants.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) is active for Week 2.

It would’ve been a major surprise if Hopkins was inactive for today’s divisional matchup with the Titans. He should be in fantasy lineups as a WR1.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 2.

If there was still a probable designation, Hopkins would almost certainly be listed as that. There isn't much question he'll be out there on Sunday against the Titans, so expect him to be active when the actives/inactives are released on 11:30 AM ET Sunday.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) remains limited in practice.

His Week 2 status isn't in much doubt, but the foot issue is worth keeping track of. Hopefully Hopkins is able to get in a full practice tomorrow and avoid being listed on the official injury report for the game.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (foot) was limited in today's practice.

There is little doubt Hopkins will be out there on Sunday against the Titans, but this is just something to keep an eye on. We'll see if he gets back up to a full practice participant tomorrow.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches eight passes in Texans' loss.

Hopkins had the tough task of dealing with a Bill Belichick defense to open the season, and they did a pretty nice job limiting the All-Pro receiver. Hopkins, who had to contest with Stephon Gilmore for much of the game, had eight receptions (on 11 targets) for 78 receiving yards along with one carry for -7 rushing yards. Hopkins must remain in fantasy lineups in Week 2 against the Titans.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (calf) will not play in the season finale, according to John McClain.

Hopkins’ calf injury isn’t thought to be serious, but the Texans are sitting their start receiver out to end the season against the Colts. This is obviously a major blow to fantasy owners still vying for a title in Week 17, but they have to be happy with Hopkins’ outstanding season. After signing a record deal for a wide receiver, the Texans certainly got their money’s worth by feeding him a ton of targets. Hopkins had 96 receptions for 1,378 yards and 13 touchdowns this season, and he should get a healthy Deshaun Watson back in 2018. He'll offer among the highest floors in fantasy football next season.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores in Christmas Day loss to Pittsburgh.

Hopkins caught four passes for 65 yards, including a highlight touchdown grab from three yards away. He was the only Texan to catch more than one pass, and it will probably be close to a one-man show again in the season finale. He's a solid WR1 against the Colts as he looks to win a receiving title.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores against the Jags.

Hopkins couldn't get much going for a lot of the game against the great Jaguars corners, but he eventually beat Jalen Ramsey on a go route for a 40-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Overall, Hopkins had four receptions (on 13 targets) for 80 yards and the score in the Week 15 loss. The target monster is an obvious WR1 next week against the Steelers.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores twice in Texans' loss.

Hopkins drew another 16 targets against the 49ers, catching 11 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns—though he did lose a fumble in the game. Starter Tom Savage unfortunately got hurt in the game and is in concussion protocol, but Hopkins still received a ton of targets with T.J. Yates at quarterback and ended up with another monster game. It really doesn't matter who's at quarterback for the Texans, as they're going to pepper Hopkins with targets. Next week against the Jaguars might be a struggle, but Hopkins is still a good bet for another 10+ targets.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins gets 14 targets against the Titans.

Hopkins grabbed eight passes for 80 yards in the Week 13 loss. The great receiver should have another game with around 15 targets against the Niners next week, and he's obviously a superb option versus the 49ers and must be in fantasy lineups.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes over 100 yards against Baltimore.

Hopkins had another stellar game for the Texans in a losing effort, catching seven of ten targets for 125 yards in the Week 12 defeat to the Ravens. The great receiver was in a battle with the Ravens corners all night, and he had his jersey badly ripped in the game. Hopkins didn't get in the end zone, but he drew a pass interference call late in the game that set his team up inside the five-yard line. Keep Hopkins in your lineup as a clear WR1 in Week 13.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores in Week 11.

Hopkins had a difficult matchup with All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson, but he had another good game, catching four of nine targets for 76 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a go route where he beat Peterson for a 30-yard touchdown. Hopkins simply gets targeted so much that he's a good bet to make some plays no matter the matchup. He'll be a high-end WR1 against the Ravens next week.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes over 100 yards against the Rams.

Hopkins again was a target monster for the Texans, getting 14 targets in the game and catching seven of them for 111 yards. Even without Deshaun Watson at quarterback, Hopkins has remained an elite WR1 over the last couple of weeks. Next week, he has a difficult matchup with Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, though, so Hopkins should be downgraded a bit.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches 34-yard touchdown pass in first game without Deshaun Watson.

Hopkins finished with six receptions for 86 yards and the score, which cut the lead to 20-14 in the fourth quarter, but Houston couldn't complete the comeback attempt. Losing Watson was obviously a huge blow to the Texans and their skill-position players, but Hopkins is the best bet to keep it up with Tom Savage under center, as he should be a target monster the rest of the way. Consider him a quality WR1 against the Rams in Week 10.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins goes off against the Seahawks.

In a difficult matchup in which he probably should've been downgraded to more of a WR2, Hopkins had his best game of the season, catching eight of 11 targets for 224 yards and at touchdown. The touchdown was a potential game-winner late in the game on a 72-yard screen pass that he took to the house, but Seattle scored with under 25 second to go. It didn't matter who was covering Hopkins, as he did fine against top corner Richard Sherman, including a nice back-shoulder catch on a perfect throw from Deshaun Watson. Look for Hopkins to get another ten-plus targets in Week 9 against the Colts, as he'll be a great WR1. He's bee right up there with Antonio Brown as the top fantasy receiver so far this season.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins was not at practice today.

We were waiting to see if Hopkins would be listed on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, but Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he was taking a personal day. Not to speculate too much, but it might have had something to do with Texans owner Bob McNair's comments about not letting "the inmates run the prison" when it comes to kneeling during the National Anthem. Though McNair's comments were probably unnecessary, it was a figure of speech—that said, there are a lot of people outraged at the comments. We would expect Hopkins to be out there and ready to play on Sunday, but this situation is something to watch over the weekend. The Texans don't play until the late-afternoon games, but we should know if Hopkins will be playing or not by Sunday morning.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins caught two passes for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win against the Browns.

Hopkins was held in check for most of the game until a three-yard score in the third quarter saved his fantasy day. Even with Will Fuller returning and scoring five times in the past three games, Hopkins has been able to score at the same rate. He faces a tough test against the Seahawks in Week 7, but most fantasy owners probably don't have a suitable replacement to consider benching the star receiver.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores three times in loss to the Chiefs.

Hopkins now has five scores in as many games to start the season. Against the Chiefs, he finished with four receptions for 52 yards, with the touchdowns coming from six, 34, and one yard out. Deshaun Watson is undoubtedly the best quarterback that the talented receiver has ever played with, and he looks like an every-week WR1 again. Hopkins gets the Browns next.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins grabs ten balls in Week 4.

Hopkins received a team-high 12 targets in the blowout win over Tennessee, gaining 107 yards on his ten receptions, including a touchdown on a quick post in the end zone. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has made it clear they want to feed Hopkins the ball, and they are—which should be no surprise after his record-breaking contract during the preseason. Hopkins has at least seven receptions in each game, and he is on pace for 124 receptions for 1,244 yards and eight touchdowns through four games. Hopkins does have a tough matchup next week against the Chiefs, but he should still be in fantasy lineups unless you have a plethora of great options at WR.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins gets targeted 13 times in Week 2 win.

Hopkins was battling with Bengals corner Adam Jones for much of the night, and he hauled in seven receptions for 73 yards in the game. Considering the Texans only threw for 125 yards, Hopkins had a large share of that yardage. He could've had a huge night, as he beat the press of Adam Jones on a zero blitz by the Bengals, but Jones smartly tackled Hopkins and didn't allow him to run under the deep ball from Deshaun Watson and take it for a long touchdown. With a date against New England in Week 3, Hopkins might be a bit of a shaky option with the Patriots perhaps set to try and take him out of the game. The Pats might also opt to try and just stop the running game of Lamar Miller and D'Onta Foreman though.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins will continue to get targeted heavily this season.

This isn't a huge surprise or anything, but it's exactly what fantasy owners of Hopkins want to hear. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said they're always going to target Hopkins—who was targeted 16 times in Week 1—a lot, and he said he wishes Hopkins had "20 targets" last game. O'Brien wouldn't name his starting quarterback for Thursday night against the Bengals but it's expected to be Deshaun Watson. Either way, Hopkins will get the ball thrown to him a ton, and he's probably the heavy favorite to lead the league in targets in 2017.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins gets 16 targets in Week 1.

16 targets is a lot, but the Texans were playing from behind for the entire game. Hopkins caught seven passes for 55 yards and a touchdown against the Jags. The touchdown came on a slant route in the end zone on the first drive of the second half when Deshaun Watson was inserted for Tom Savage. It's unclear if Watson or Savage would be the better option for Hopkins' outlook, but he'll receive a lot of targets each week either way. Hopkins should be a WR1/WR2 against the Bengals on Thursday night.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins (hand) practiced fully for the Texans today.

Hopkins dealt with a broken hand for basically the entire preseason, but he's back to 100% and ready to go against Jacksonville in Week 1. He's more of a WR2 than WR1 because of the difficult matchup against Jalen Ramsey and former teammate A.J. Bouye, but Hopkins should receive a good amount of targets.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

The Texans are signing DeAndre Hopkins to a five-year extension, according to Adam Schefter.

Hopkins held out for one day during last year's training camp, but he returned quickly and was rewarded big-time over a year later. According to Schefter, the contract will include the largest guarantee for any wide receiver in NFL history; so it's a ton, as it'll be higher than the $47 million guaranteed Falcons receiver Julio Jones received. The Texans have been taking care of they guys today, as this is the fourth extension they've done over the last few hours. Hopkins' extension comes after he missed almost the entire preseason after injuring his hand—he hasn't practiced since August 9. He'll be good to go for Week 1 though, and if the contract is any indication, the Texans are going to feed him the ball.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins won't practice again this week.

Hopkins and some of the other Texans are unable to get out of Houston because of Hurricane Harvey. Because he's been out a few weeks because of a hand injury, Hopkins might not have even practiced if he was with the team anyway. There is some concern with Hopkins after missing most of the preseason, but he should get a ton of target right when he steps in the lineup in a couple Sundays from now.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins hasn't practiced since August 9.

Hopkins injured his hand in the team's first preseason game and hasn't been on the field since then. It's unlikely this hand injury is so bad that Hopkins will be out for any regular season time, but it's still a concern that he hasn't been on the field and getting reps with quarterback Tom Savage and the rest of the offense. Hopkins should still remain a fine third-round pick as someone that offers elite upside.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches two passes against the Panthers in preseason game.

Hopkins had two receptions for 15 yards in under a quarter of play. The Texans' number one receiver might get some time with Deshaun Watson in the next couple preseason games.

DeAndre Hopkins had six catches for 65 yards in playoff loss to NE.

The Patriots did a good job in coverage on Hopkins. Osweiler and Hopkins also seemed to not have great chemistry, as it was for most of the season. After a down season for his standards, Hopkins should still be easily drafted as a top 20 WR in next season's fantasy drafts. Hopkins will be a high upside option, but he could also have another season like 2016.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches touchdown in first round of the playoffs.

Hopkins had five receptions for 67 yards and a touchdown against Oakland. Hopkins had a nice over-the-shoulder catch to set up Houston near the goal line and then Osweiler hit him for a two-yard touchdown. Hopkins also drew a pass interference call on a pass in the endzone (it was a questionable call). It's back to back games for Hopkins with five receptions and he'll try to keep it going next weekend in the Divisional Round.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins has one of best games of the season in the finale against Tennessee.

Hopkins had seven catches for 123 yards on 11 targets. He had 78 receptions for 954 yards and four touchdowns. Hopkins will try to keep it going next week in the playoffs for the Texans.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins catches three passes for 43 yards against the Bengals.

Hopkins and new quarterback Tom Savage still seem to be working on their chemistry, and Hopkins is still only a FLEX option to conclude the fantasy season in Week 17 against Tennessee.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins sees team-high 17 targets in win.

Hopkins caught eight passes for 87 yards, and although it is probably too little, too late for fantasy owners, Tom Savage replacing the ineffective Brock Osweiler on Sunday might turn things around. Hopkins is back on the WR2 map for Christmas Eve against Cincy, as he should see a heavy dose of targets from Savage.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins caught two passes for 33 yards in the Texans' 22-17 win over the Colts.

Hopkins was targeted just four times with the Texans running it 41 times. Bill O'Brien will probably chose to do the same thing next week against the Jaguars. Despite his immense talent, Hopkins is just a WR3.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins scores late touchdown to salvage fantasy day.

Hopkins had three catches for 59 yards and a 44-yard touchdown with under two minutes to go against the Packers. The touchdown came on a throw down the sideline the split the corner and the safety, then Hopkins made a move to get by the safety and score. Hopkins is a low-end WR2 next week against Vontae Davis and the Colts.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

It's sad that Hopkins owners who are sticking with him are probably happy with the performance. Brock Osweiler is holding back the entire offense for the Texans, and Hopkins numbers have fallen off a cliff from a season ago. Even against a bad Green Bay secondary, Hopkins is barely on the WR2 radar for Week 13.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

DeAndre Hopkins gets robbed of early touchdown in loss.

Hopkins caught five passes for 58 yards, and was ruled out of bounds on what should have been a 60-yard touchdown. An early-round pick in nearly all fantasy leagues, Brock Osweiler’s play is holding Hopkins back. He is no better than a low-end WR2 for the rest of the season.

DeAndre Hopkins | Texans WR

Hopkins quiet again in Texans' Week 10 win.

DeAndre had five catches for 48 yards against the Jags. He's averaging only 10.7 yards per catch this season. Hopkins could start having some big games in the second half of the season, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. He's just a WR2/FLEX for now. Hopefully he can make an impact against an improving Raiders defense in Week 11.
