Hopkins traded to Cardinals | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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 (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Seahawks. He only got in a limited practice on Friday with what HC Kliff Kingsbury called a “lingering” ankle injury.

Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) is expected to play against the Seahawks tonight, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Hopkins only got in a limited practice on Friday. The only other time he was listed as questionable with this ankle issue this season was Week 4, when he ended up posting a 7-41 receiving line vs. the Panthers. Hopkins comes with elevated risk in Week 7 fantasy lineups but is virtually impossible to bench vs. Seattle's league-worst WR defense.
