Texans | Nuke Hopkins finds the end zone

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:55:30 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 win against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Nuke took a backseat to Will Fuller, who had nearly double the amount of receiving yards in the opener. That's because Hopkins faced double teams while the rookie was freed up. If Fuller continues to produce, Hopkins should see more single coverages allowing him to produce like a first-round fantasy pick. He remains a must-start in all fantasy formats across the board.

Texans | Jaelen Strong in starting position

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 16:05:07 -0700

Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong was listed as the No. 2 wide receiver opposite WR DeAndre Hopkins on Houston's initial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Strong is a sleeper candidate heading into his second professional season. He had a nose for the endzone last year and is in better condition this season. Will Fuller will more than likely be Strong's main competition, but Strong makes is an attractive target as a deep flier in later rounds of fantasy drafts.

Texans | Houston not talking to DeAndre Hopkins

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 10:48:40 -0700

Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith said the team has not started discussions with WR DeAndre Hopkins on a new contract. "There is not a negotiation happening at this point," Smith said on NFL Network's Inside Training Camp Live. "He's under contract for two more years."

Fantasy Tip: The 24-year-old Hopkins had 111 receptions, 1,521 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns last season despite the Texans' shaky quarterback situation and should be viewed as a high-end WR1 in all fantasy formats.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins will get his in time

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 23:43:59 -0700

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will have his contract addressed at the proper time, according to owner Bob McNair. "We'll deal with his contract at the proper time," McNair said. "We take care of our players and we'll take care of him."

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins is an elite receiver coming off of a 111-1,521-11 season in which he didn't really have a quarterback. The Texans believe they have their franchise QB in Brock Osweiler now, and Hopkins remains a high-end WR1.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins activated

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 23:32:01 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was activated from the Reserve/Did Not Report list Sunday, July 31. The team declined offering him a contract extension. He's due a non-guaranteed $1 million base salary this season and a $445,004 roster bonus on the fifth day of training camp. Hopkins was subject to $40,000 fines for each missed day of camp.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins had a stellar 111-1,521-11 season in 2015. He is one of the best receivers in fantasy and should remain firmly entrenched in the WR1 window.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins returning

Sun, 31 Jul 2016 11:51:23 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will end his holdout and return to the Texans Sunday, July 31, the first day of training camp. Hopkins expressed his disappointment in Houston's lack of contract negotiations, but he also stated his desire to help the Texans win a Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: We could see Hopkins try to prove himself even more in 2016, not that he still needs to prove himself. He'll want to show the Texans he deserves a long-term contract and should be considered late in the first round or early in the second round of fantasy drafts.

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 16:18:04 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list Saturday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Nuk is reportedly going to forfeit a $445,000 roster bonus due to the holdout. It doesn't affect his fantasy stock as a high-end WR1 for now.

Fantasy Tip: It's a waiting game for Hopkins and the Texans. He's still their best receiver, though, and should still be considered late in the first round or early in the second round of fantasy drafts.

Texans | DeAndre Hopkins not at training camp

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 08:21:38 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not report to training camp because he is unhappy with his contract and the team is not willing to negotiate an extension. Hopkins can be fined $40,000 for each day of camp he misses.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how long Hopkins is willing to sit out because of his contract. Hopkins should still be selected in one of the first few rounds of fantasy drafts and should be one of the top performers at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Hopkins has developed into one of the top receivers in the game, and he is a WR1 in any format.
