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.
Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not report to training camp and is holding out in pursuit of a new contract, according to ESPN. Hopkins is in entering the 4th year of his rookie contract and is set to earn just $1.5 million. He ranked among the top 6 in catches (111), receiving yards (1,521) and TDs (11) last year. The Texans reportedly aren't negotiating a new deal with Hopkins right now. We'll see which side budges first. We're not moving Hopkins down the WR rankings, although he already felt overvalued at his 1.04 ADP.
Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is active for tonight’s game against the Patriots. He was added to the injury report on Friday but was listed as probable. Hopkins should be ready for his usual workhorse role and remains a must-start in season-long leagues.
