Texans | DeAndre Hopkins leading NFL in targets

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 19:31:07 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has 29 targets through Week 2, making him easily the most targeted receiver in the league through two games.

Fantasy Tip: To give you some sense of how much the Texans are relying on him, 24 of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson's 47 pass attempts in six quarters of action have been thrown in direction of Hopkins. The fifth-year wideout has responded with seven receptions in each of his first two games but is averaging only 9.1 yards per catch. Life won't get any easier in Week 3 when the New England Patriots will almost certainly force Watson to rely on his other receivers. Nevertheless, Hopkins is a solid WR2 in fantasy.

Texans | Plenty of looks for DeAndre Hopkins

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 20:53:05 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his 13 targets for 73 yards in a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, Sept. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins saw more targets than the rest of the team combined, but neither Tom Savage nor Deshaun Watson has shown the ability to connect with him consistently, especially on deeper throws. Hopkins looked stuck as a high-upside WR3 for now.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins a target machine

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 14:39:11 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins saw 16 targets in the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The rest of Houston's offense had 16 targets combined.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins will be targeted plenty no matter who the quarterback is, but he benefitted more from Deshaun Watson. He only totaled 54 yards on the 16 targets, but he did tally seven catches, including a touchdown. Hopkins remains a WR1 this week as the Texans' go-to receiving threat.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins targeted 16 times

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 18:16:34 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven passes on 16 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown in a 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: It's nice to see the heavy usage, but until Houston can find a quarterback who can consistently hook up with Hopkins, the receiver's value is going to be capped. Consider him a WR3 heading into a Thursday night matchup with Cincinnati in Week 2.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins pronounces himself healthy

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 10:15:36 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb) told reporters he is "1,000 percent" recovered from the thumb injury that sidelined him for a few weeks during the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins didn't get much time to bond with new quarterback Tom Savage in August, but he's a solid candidate to be force-fed targets among a receiving corps that will be missing Will Fuller released a few weeks and possibly Braxton Miller for the opener. Consider him a solid WR2 with WR1 upside if Savage proves to be even an average NFL quarterback and can stay healthy for any length of time.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins says he's healthy

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 09:53:19 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb) said he's "1,000 percent healthy," when asked if he was 100 percent Monday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk slumped to a 78-954-4 line in 2016 after emerging as a WR1 the previous season. A lot of that can be attributed to the brutal QB play, which may still be an issue this season. He's a WR2 in fantasy.
