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.
Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) isn't listed on the final injury report. He was sidelined on Wednesday and Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. Hopkins should be ready for his usual role in Sunday's game vs. the Browns.
Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (illness) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We usually don't worry about guys missing time with illnesses, but it's a different climate with COVID. ESPN's Dan Graziano reported earlier today that the Cardinals have had 3 positive COVID tests this week. To be clear, we don't know that Hopkins is 1 of them. We'll get another update on his status by Friday afternoon at the latest.
Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) returned to practice on Thursday. He's going to play Sunday vs. the Rams -- but between the rib injury, his slow start and a matchup vs. CB Jalen Ramsey, Hopkins looks like just a WR2 for Week 4.
Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. He sat out all 3 practices last week before playing 91% of the snaps vs. Jacksonville. But Hopkins mustered just 3 catches on 6 targets for 21 yards. We're fully expecting him to play against the Rams this weekend, but consider Hopkins more of a WR2 until we know he's healthy.
