Texans | DeAndre Hopkins frustrated

Thu, 29 May 2014 08:01:21 -0700

Houston Texas WR DeAndre Hopkins has admitted that he's struggling to pick up the new offense under head coach Bill O'Brien as well as connect with the new group of quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: The second-year snare has all the tools to take a step forward but has a situation similar to a rookie's. He's a fine speculation as a low-end WR3 in fantasy drafts, but it may take a bit for him to start going in the 2014 season.
