Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (thumb, ankle, hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 4. He was limited in practice all week, but there’s been no indication he’s in any danger of missing Sunday’s game against the Colts. Go ahead and keep Hopkins penciled into fantasy lineups — and check back Sunday morning to make sure he’s active.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He was limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about the foot. Hopkins is safe to fire up as a WR1.

Texans WRs DeAndre Hopkins (foot) and Will Fuller (hamstring) are expected to play against the Titans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins' status was never in doubt. Fuller missed the opener and remained limited in practice this week, so that hammy is still a concern. He's a risk/reward WR3 for Week 2. Fuller's return is good news for QB Deshaun Watson.

The Texans listed WR DeAndre Hopkins (foot) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He was limited in practice all week, but there's been nothing to suggest this foot issue is a real concern. Go ahead and keep Hopkins penciled into fantasy lineups. Just check back Sunday morning to make sure he's active.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hamstring) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. Rookie Keke Coutee (hamstring) is also inactive. That leaves Bruce Ellington, Sammie Coates and Vyncint Smith behind DeAndre Hopkins on the depth chart. Hopkins is obviously the only fantasy play here. He’s a strong bet for 10+ targets.

The Texans added Texas Tech WR Keke Coutee in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Coutee is 1 of the most electric receivers in this year’s class, with 4.4 speed and loads of wiggle. He averaged 15.2 yards per catch over his 3-year college career and enjoyed a breakout 93-1,429-10 2017 campaign. Coutee ranked 10th in yards per route run among all draft-eligible receivers last year, according to Pro Football Focus. The knocks against him? He’s coming from a pass-friendly, non-pro-style offense. And he goes just 5’10, 181 pounds with sub-5th percentile arm length, wingspan and hand size. Coutee’s big-play ability should translate to the pros if he’s deployed properly, though. He has a shot to slide in as the Texans’ #3 WR behind DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller. Houston is a building a strong WR corps for QB Deshaun Watson.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Colts. That leaves Will Fuller as the #1 WR in a plus matchup. But between his inconsistencies and having T.J. Yates under center, Fuller is just a risk/reward WR3.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is dealing with a calf injury and is not expected to play in Sunday's finale against the Colts, according to insider Aaron Wilson. It'll be the 1st missed game of his career. Hopkins leaves behind a whopping 11.6 targets, but they're not worth a whole lot coming from QB T.J. Yates. Houston's passing game is 1 to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is active for today’s game against the Jaguars. He missed practice on both Thursday and Friday, but we never heard much concern about his availability for this one. The matchup with Jacksonville’s top-ranked WR defense is a bigger concern than the toe. Hopkins sits on the WR1/WR2 borderline in the Week 15 Rankings.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) will play against the Jaguars, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We never heard any concern about Hopkins' availability, despite the fact that he missed Thursday and Friday's practices. Even in a matchup with Jacksonville's top-ranked WR defense, Hopkins is a must-start in season-long fantasy leagues.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars after sitting out on both Thursday and Friday. HC Bill O’Brien said Friday afternoon that he expects Hopkins to play. We’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Even at less than 100% and in a brutal matchup, Hopkins would be extremely tough to bench in season-long fantasy leagues.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not practice on Thursday and is listed on the injury report with a toe. It's unclear if Hopkins just got the day off or is dealing with a legitimate injury. We'll learn more tomorrow.

Texans QB Deshaun Watson will start Thursday night's game against the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer. Watson's rushing ability could eventually make him spot-start option, but we can't recommend him on the road on a short week against a solid Cincinnati defense. Watson does look like good news for WR DeAndre Hopkins, who was targeted on 11 of the rookie's 23 attempts in Week 1.

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 Will Fuller is undergoing surgery on his broken collarbone and is expected to miss 2-3 months, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain. The short end of that timetable would have him back around Week 5. The long end would keep him sidelined until Week 9. Fuller is no longer worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues. (He might be worth a look at the end of best-ball drafts.) WR Jaelen Strong is the leading candidate to take Fuller's spot on the outside, while slot receiver Braxton Miller could also see a boost in volume. Neither guy is a particularly attractive fantasy target, though, in Houston's run-heavy offense. WR DeAndre Hopkins will continue to dominate the action.

Texans WR Will Fuller broke his collarbone in practice on Wednesday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He's considered to be out "indefinitely." Featuring Braxton Miller, Jaelen Strong and Wendall Williams, the Texans are thin behind Fuller and #1 target DeAndre Hopkins. We wouldn't chase any of the depth guys in fantasy drafts.

The Texans are expected to start QB Tom Savage against the Bengals on Saturday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Savage stepped in for the benched Brock Osweiler in the 2nd quarter of yesterday's game and led the Texans back from a 13-0 deficit for a 21-20 win. Savage completed 23 of 36 passes for 260 yards with 0 TDs or INTs. His 85.4 QB Rating was better than Osweiler has posted in all but 3 games this season. Savage will be no better than a low-end QB2 for Week 16, but he looks like good news for WR DeAndre Hopkins. Savage targeted Hopkins on 15 of his 36 attempts (42%) yesterday, completing 8 for 87 yards.

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.
