Dustin Hopkins Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Browns K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Jets. Riley Patterson will kick in his place but is not a strong fantasy option with Cleveland's implied total at just 21 points.

The Browns signed K Riley Patterson to their practice squad. He'll step in if K Dustin Hopkins' hamstring injury costs him further time. Patterson was dumped by the Lions a week ago after missing a pair of XPs in a three-game stretch. But he connected on 15 of 17 FGs this year.

Browns K Dustin Hopkins is officially questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Texans with a left hamstring injury. Cleveland just went for two points after their latest TD, so it doesn't look like Hopkins is available the rest of the way.

The Browns acquired K Dustin Hopkins from the Chargers and promptly released K Cade York. York missed eight FGs and two XPs last year and struggled this preseason, so the move doesn't come as a big surprise. Hopkins sports a career 84.8% FG conversion rate and is squarely on the fantasy radar kicking for what should be a strong Cleveland offense.

The Chargers placed K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) on IR, knocking him out for at least another 4 games. K Cameron Dicker has made all 6 of his XPs and all 7 of his FG tries over the past 3 weeks.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Chiefs. Cameron Dicker will kick for Los Angeles again.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Friday but is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game vs. the Chiefs. It looks like Cameron Dicker will kick for Los Angeles again.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the 49ers. Cameron Dicker will kick for Los Angeles for the 2nd straight week.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with the hamstring injury he suffered in Monday night's win over the Broncos, HC Brandon Staley said. So the Chargers will go back to K Taylor Bertolet, who made 3 FGs and 3 XPs in place of Hopkins in Week 5.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (right quad) isn't listed on the final Week 6 injury report. He was a full participant on Saturday and looks safe to use in fantasy lineups vs. the Broncos on Monday night.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (right quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Browns. Taylor Bertolet will kick in his place.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins (right quad) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. It's an injury to his kicking leg, so we'd try to find a replacement rather than trusting Hopkins even if active.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins was activated from the COVID list and will be available for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos.

Chargers K Dustin Hopkins has been placed on the COVID list. He joins K Tristan Vizcaino there, so we'll see what the Chargers do at kicker this week.

The Chargers released K Tristan Vizcaino and signed K Dustin Hopkins. It's surprising Vizcaino lasted this long considering he missed 5 XPs and 1 FG through 6 games. Hopkins was dumped by Washington last week after missing 2 XPs and 2 FGs in 6 games. But he sports a career 84.0% FG conversion rate and should bring more stability to the position for Los Angeles. Hopkins should also be a decent fantasy option in this high-scoring offense.

Washington released K Dustin Hopkins and signed K Chris Blewitt. Hopkins missed 2 XPs and 2 FGs over the first 6 games of this season. Blewitt has yet to attempt a regular-season kick and isn't a viable Week 7 fantasy option.

The forecast for today's Redskins-Bills game calls for winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph. It won't be as windy as it was last week, but this is still enough to give slight bumps down to the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you were already avoiding Washington's passing game (including Terry McLaurin) in rookie QB Dwayne Haskins' 1st start. QB Josh Allen and WR John Brown remain fine plays on the Buffalo side. We'd try not to use either K in this game.
