Shark Bites

Insider Jordan Schultz reports that Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) will play vs. the Browns on Sunday. Hopkins is listed as questionable after missing Friday's practice, so it's safe to assume he won't be anywhere close to 100%. Hopkins' snaps were a bit limited by this injury last week, and he finished with just four catches on five targets for 40 yards. Consider him just a WR3 in Week 3 fantasy lineups.

Recent Shark Bites

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught all 7 of his targets for 72 yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans. That beat his nearest teammate by 3 receptions and more than doubled any other Tennessee player in receiving yards. Hopkins caught Will Levis' only 2 completions among 6 pass attempts before the rookie left with an injury. Ryan Tannehill completed 16 of 20 throws in relief, targeting Hopkins with 25% of his attempts. Hopkins' 10.6 yards per catch for the game also marked his third straight outing with less than 11 yards per catch. If Levis can't go in Week 18, Tannehill should help Hopkins' catch-rate outlook but lessen his yardage upside. We'll also see whether the Titans indicate any different plan for player usage in the regular-season finale.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught just two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's OT loss to the Texans. That came despite a team-leading 9 targets that accounted for 34.6% of QB Will Levis' pass attempts and led his nearest teammate by five. It was Hopkins' third straight game with 9+ targets and fifth such game among eight since Levis took over. The WR sports just a 46.3% catch rate over that span, though. He gets a positive matchup with Seattle in Week 16 before a rematch with Houston ... which was also a positive matchup. Hopkins ran more of his routes from the slot Sunday, according to Pro Football Focus, drawing a 36% target route from there but logging just one catch. We'll see if that lack of success alters any Week 16 usage. Hopkins remains a startable fantasy asset but comes with a low floor.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins roped in 4 of 5 targets for 59 receiving yards in Week 11 vs. the Jaguars. Nearly all of his fantasy contributions came on in the form of a 46-yard TD late in the third quarter of Sunday’s contest. Though the veteran has recorded at least 40 receiving yards in eight of 10 games played in 2023, he ranks as the WR28 in PPR points per game (13.2). The inconsistent nature of the Titans’ offense has led to Hopkins exceeding his scoring average only three times this season, with a combined 4 receiving scores in those games. He’s a flex-worthy player week-to-week reliant upon finding the end zone to really pop in fantasy lineups.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins had a nice first half in Pittsburgh on Thursday night, catching four balls for 60 yards. But he went catch-less over the final 30 minutes as the Steelers defense put the clamps on QB Will Levis. The good news for Hopkins is that he drew a team-high 11 targets for a 28.2% share. He's now totaled 17 targets on a 25% share from Levis over the past two games. And the rookie again flashed impressive arm talent in this one. That should be enough to at least support Hopkins as a WR3 going forward -- and there will be ceiling games like we saw in Week 8 as long as Levis is under center. Hopkins gets slightly positive matchups vs. the Bucs and Jaguars the next two weeks. Tennessee has the 10th easiest WR schedule from Week 10 through 17.

Titans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is active for tonight's game vs. the Steelers. He was listed as questionable after missing practice on Wednesday, but we've heard nothing to suggest that the toe will be a significant issue tonight. We're expecting Hopkins to play his usual role. See where he sits in the Week 9 WR Rankings.
