Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said Monday that he's "1,000%" healthy after missing time in August with a thumb injury. We never sensed any concern about it. Hopkins is safe to fire up in Week 1 lineups.

The Texans and WR DeAndre Hopkins agreed to a 5-year, $81 million extension with $49 million guaranteed, according to multiple sources. It keeps him in Houston through the 2022 seasons. Hopkins was a fantasy disappointment last year, ranking 27th among WRs in PPR points and 35th in non-PPR. But QB play was mostly to blame. He's just 2 seasons removed from a 4th-place PPR finish and just turned 25 in June. Hopkins sits inside the top 12 WRs in our dynasty rankings.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will miss the 2nd preseason game with a hand injury. It's the 1st we've heard of it, and we don't have any other details. HC Bill O'Brien has said Hopkins is fine and that they're just making sure he's good to go for the regular season, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. We'll keep an eye on this, but we're not moving Hopkins in the WR rankings.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins finished with just 2 catches on 4 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts. The 33 yards were actually a team high, while the targets and catches tied for 2nd behind only TE C.J. Fiedorowicz. QB Brock Osweiler completed just 14 of 24 passes for 147 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT. Houston won this game with its running game, with Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue combining for 162 yards and a score on 37 carries. We might see a similar recipe next week vs. Jacksonville. Hopkins will look best as a WR3 in that one. He's scored just twice in his last 11 outings and been held below 60 yards in 9 of those.

Houston WR DeAndre Hopkins ended his holdout after 1 day. Good news for fantasy owners, as he won’t lose valuable time alongside new QB Brock Osweiler. Hopkins remains a top 8 WR.

Injury Predictor

Hopkins didn't have a documented injury in 2016, and only has 3 documented injuries in his 4-year stint as an NFL WR. In that time frame, he hasn't missed a single regular season game. He's a low-risk fantasy player heading into the 2017 season. His greatest downside might be a rookie starting QB.
