Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) is expected to play vs. the Bears today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. But Hopkins "could be used more sparingly than usual due to his injury and the weather conditions," Schefter adds. Hopkins has been out since Week 8 with this hamstring injury and got in just 2 limited practices this week. The forecast for today's game in Chicago calls for rain, which might increase the odds Hopkins aggravates the injury. It's impossible to know exactly how much he'll end up playing today, leaving Hopkins as a risky fantasy start.
ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) "could be back" for the NFC Championship or Super Bowl, but that it'd be "unrealistic" to expect him back any sooner. That jibes with the 6-week timetable for return we got for Hopkins earlier this week. We'll see how Arizona deploys WRs Christian Kirk, A.J. Green, Rondale Moore and Antoine Wesley vs. the Lions today.
Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is set for surgery to repair a torn MCL, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins is expected to be sidelined for 6 weeks, so he'll probably need Arizona to reach the NFC Championship to have a chance to play again this season. The last 2 games Hopkins missed, the Cardinals used A.J. Green and Antoine Wesley as their primary outside WRs, with Christian Kirk in the slot.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Cardinals expect WR DeAndre Hopkins to miss the rest of the regular season with a knee sprain. The team is "hopeful to get him back at some point in the postseason." It's worth noting here that NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Hopkins is "expected to miss Sunday and likely more." Those 2 reports don't necessarily clash, but might be reason to wait before dropping Hopkins from your roster right away if you can help it. However long he's out, Hopkins' absence can only help the target outlooks for the team's other pass-catchers. Christian Kirk and A.J. Green both look like top-30 options across fantasy formats for Sunday's game at Detroit.
Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins "is in danger " of missing Sunday's game vs. the Lions due to a knee injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hopkins is seeking more opinions on the injury, which usually isn't a good sign. We'll keep you updated on his status, but fantasy owners should be lining up backup plans for Week 15.
