DeAndre Hopkins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Texans are set to trade WR DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Wow. Hopkins is an elite receiver in the prime of his career with 3 years remaining on a manageable contract. It's a mind-boggling move by the Texans, leaving Will Fuller and Kenny Stills atop the depth chart for now. Those 2 are big winners here, while QB Deshaun Watson's fantasy stock takes a significant hit. QB Kyler Murray, meanwhile, gets the legitimate #1 WR that he was missing last year. He looks like a top-5 QB in 2020 fantasy drafts. Hopkins should easily remain a WR1 in a pass-leaning offense piloted by an accurate QB.

Update: Schefter reports that the Cardinals are receiving Hopkins and a late-round pick in exchange for RB David Johnson and a 2nd-rounder. Other picks are involved in the trade. Hopkins is expected to get a new contract from Arizona.

Update: The Houston Chronicle's John McClain reports it's Hopkins and a 4th-round pick to Arizona for Johnson, a 2020 2nd-rounder and a 2021 4th-rounder.

Texans WR Kenny Stills (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Titans. Other starters like QB Deshaun Watson and WR DeAndre Hopkins aren't expected to play much, if at all, as long as the Chiefs knock off the Chargers.

The Texans "won't take any chances" in their game against the Titans this afternoon, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweets. Houston will have "several starters on the sidelines even if they aren’t inactive," per Rapoport. That might change if the Chiefs lose to the Chargers in the 1 pm ET time slot, giving the Texans a shot to climb into the #3 seed. But if Kansas City wins, don't expect to see much of QB Deshaun Watson or WR DeAndre Hopkins. WR Kenny Stills and RBs Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson could also be limited.

Texans WR Will Fuller (groin) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. WRs DeAndre Hopkins (illness) and Kenny Stills (knee) are listed as questionable. Both guys figure to be available, but they could be rested in a meaningless game for Houston if the Chiefs win earlier on Sunday afternoon.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Monday that he has no plans to rest his starters in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Titans. Houston can still climb into the #3 seed -- but only if the Chiefs lose to the Chargers. That game will be over by the time the Texans kick off at 4:25 pm ET, so the game might be completely meaningless. That means there's at least some chance O'Brien changes his mind and sits guys like QB Deshaun Watson and WR DeAndre Hopkins. Those guys come with elevated risk in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has been activated from the PUP list. He was reportedly dealing with a minor ankle issue, but it's not a concern now. Hopkins has missed just 1 game through 6 NFL seasons.

The Texans have placed WR DeAndre Hopkins on the active/PUP list to begin training camp. Hopkins is coming off a shoulder injury that included tearing ligaments from the bone. He avoided offseason surgery, though, and has indicated he expects to be feeling better this season than he did last. Hopkins played through a foot issue as well for most of 2018. We'll watch him through camp but aren't currently worried for his regular-season status.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins revealed that he played through serious pain in 2018. "Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally," Hopkins said Saturday, via the Houston Chronicle. "It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn’t." Hopkins also shared that he tore ligaments in his shoulder “completely off the bone.” Wow. The 27-year-old set career highs with 115 catches and 1,572 yards last season. He’s fully expected to be ready for training camp.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins told NFL Network's James Palmer that he suffered a Grade 3 sprain of the AC joint in his right shoulder in the 1st half of Saturday's playoff loss to the Colts. Hopkins played in the 2nd half but didn't look quite right. He finished with 5 catches for 37 yards on 10 targets. It was a disappointing end to a brilliant campaign. Hopkins led all WR in PPR points this season, finishing 2nd in catches, 2nd in yards and 4th in TDs. And he played all 16 games for the 5th time in 6 tries. Hopkins will be in the mix to be the 1st WR off the board in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He was limited in practice all week, and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggested this morning that Hopkins was a game-time decision. So that ankle seems like a real concern. Still, we haven’t heard that Hopkins will be limited, so he remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

NFL Network's James Palmer hears that it'd be a "surprise" if Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) did not play against the Eagles today. The team will still reportedly wait until pregame warmups before making a final decision, but Hopkins should stay penciled into fantasy lineups for now. We'll get his official status around 11:30 am ET.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is a game-time decision today. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable. Hopkins "is adamant about playing today, but the trainers want to see him work out pre-game to be sure," Rapoport tweeted. "They will need to be convinced." We'll get Hopkins' official status around 11:30 am ET.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s been limited in practice for most of the year, but this is a new injury and the 1st time he’s been questionable since Week 4. We’ve still heard nothing to suggest that Hopkins is in danger of missing this one, but we’ll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday.

11:12am EST 12/2/18

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Browns. DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas will dominate targets.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. That leaves Houston with Demaryius Thomas, Vyncint Smith and Sammie Coates behind DeAndre Hopkins -- although ESPN's Sarah Barshop expects the team to use RB Tyler Ervin in the slot. Regardless, Hopkins should dominate targets tomorrow.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) isn't listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He sat out Thursday's practice but returned to a limited workout on Friday. Hopkins has a tough draw against the Jaguars this weekend, but remains a top 10 WR in our rankings. He scored in both games vs. Jacksonville last year.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) did not practice on Thursday. He's been limited in almost every practice this season, but this is his first "DNP." We'll get another update on Hopkins' status tomorrow.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb, ankle, hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about his status. Hopkins remains a must-start in season-long fantasy leagues.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is expected to play against the Colts today. He's on the injury report with thumb, ankle and hamstring issues, but there was never any concern about his availability. Keep Hopkins glued into fantasy lineups.
