Buy/Sell/Hold Report #3

By Draft Sharks Staff 3:10pm EDT 10/16/19


BUY DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Texans

We issued a BUY order on the entire Texans passing game in the last Buy/Sell/Hold Report. A few days later, WR Will Fuller exploded for a 14-217-3 line. QB Deshaun Watson led his position in fantasy points that week and then ranked 4th last week. Big hits.

Hopkins hasn’t hit yet — but that just means that the buying window remains open.

The perennial WR1 is sitting “just” 15th in PPR points and 20th in non-PPR through 6 weeks. But Hopkins ranks 5th among WRs in targets and 4th in catches.

The problem is that he’s averaging only 10.1 yards per catch and has scored just twice. We’ll gladly bet on both numbers climbing the rest of the way.

Over the previous 4 seasons, Hopkins averaged 13.6 yards per catch and scored on 9.8% of his catches. If we give him those rates this season, he’d be sitting on 544 yards and 4 TDs. And he’d rank 4th at his position in PPR points.

See if you can pry Hopkins away from his owner before his big “Will Fuller Game” comes.
