    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted three receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins re-discovered the end zone for the first time since Week 5, snapping a six-game touchdown drought. He has three or more catches in each of his past eight outings, but he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2. Still, he remains a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 14 for his high ceiling.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 10:05pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 70 yards on 10 targets in the Week 12 game against the San Diego Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins hasn't found the end zone in six games dating back to Week 5 in Minnesota, but the yardage total was his most since Week 6 and his third-highest total of the season. He has settled into more of a WR2 role for fantasy owners down the stretch, although he faces a favorable matchup in Week 13 against a beleaguered Green Bay pass defense.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 9:50pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 58 yards on six targets in the Week 11 game against the Oakland Raiders Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He appeared to have a long touchdown in the first quarter, but a blown call on a sideline catch cost him what would have been a 60-yard touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Fantasy owners haven't had much production from Hopkins this season, and they really needed that long scoring play. He should be treated more as a WR2 heading into Week 12 against the San Diego Chargers.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 3:12pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught five passes for 48 yards and did not score in a Week 10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Even with all of the terrible quarterback play Hopkins has endured in his career, he still mustered to post big fantasy points. That's not the case with Brock Osweiler in charge of the offense. The Texans visit the Oakland Raiders in Week 11.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 9:24pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will meet the Detroit Lions in Week 8 at home. The Lions are allowing 273.0 yards per game over seven games, and they have given up 18 pass touchdowns which is tied for most in the NFL. The Lions have also given up 22 or more pass plays of 20 or more yards.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has had rather erratic production this season, something fantasy owners grabbing him in the first round were certainly not banking on seeing. Hopkins has just one score over the past five games, and he hasn't had a 100-yard game since Week 2. However, you likely spent a high draft pick on him and you need to keep rolling with Nuke despite some shaky quarterback play costing the receiver.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 9:36pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for a team-high 36 yards in the Week 7 game against the Denver Broncos Monday, Oct. 24. He was targeted 12 times.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been a huge disappointment for fantasy owners, and he is Brock Osweiler just haven't built a good rapport. Nuke should not be dropped, and trading him would be a mistake since his fantasy value is at its nadir. Hang in there and hope the duo can jell sooner rather than later.

  • Posted: 10/22/2016 1:19pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) fully participated in practice Saturday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been targeted at least eight times in five of the six games this season and should continue to be an important part of the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 2:04pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) returned to a full practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is expected to see his regular complement of snaps in Week 7 versus the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: It appears Hopkins and Will Fuller will both be good to go Monday night, but the matchup for both is the most difficult one either player will see all season. Hopkins is simply too good to bench in fantasy, but expectations need to be set low. The Broncos have allowed only two receivers to top 60 yards and kept opposing wideouts out of the end zone since Week 1. As such, he's no better than a WR3 this week.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 6:30am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was added to the injury report Thursday, Oct. 20, with a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice Thursday, but he's expected to play in Week 7 on Monday Night Football.

    Huddle Up: Nuk has been pretty underwhelming with a 31-354-3 line this season, and he faces the stout Denver Broncos defense. He's a midrange WR1 option this week.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 4:49pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins hasn't been a producing like a Top 5 fantasy receiver, as he and Brock Osweiler haven't had the same kind of rapport as some of the other pass-catch combos in the league. Hopkins remains a WR1 in all fantasy leagues for his upside. He has just one 100-yard game in five tries, although he has at least found the end zone in three of his five outings.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 5:37pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was targeted six times in the Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he managed just one reception for four yards.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins wasn't injured, he is just facing top coverage and double teams, as defenses dare others to beat them. Hopkins has just one 100-yard game this season, and he hasn't scored since Week 2. He remains a WR1 in most fantasy leagues for his potential, and as Will Fuller continues to emerge it might take some of the doubles off of Hopkins allowing him more room to operate.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 9:55pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted five receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 win against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Nuke took a backseat to Will Fuller, who had nearly double the amount of receiving yards in the opener. That's because Hopkins faced double teams while the rookie was freed up. If Fuller continues to produce, Hopkins should see more single coverages allowing him to produce like a first-round fantasy pick. He remains a must-start in all fantasy formats across the board.

  • Posted: 8/1/2016 8:44am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was activated from the Reserve/Did Not Report list Sunday, July 31. The team declined offering him a contract extension. He's due a non-guaranteed $1 million base salary this season and a $445,004 roster bonus on the fifth day of training camp. Hopkins was subject to $40,000 fines for each missed day of camp.

    Huddle Up: The shortest holdout in the history of holdouts is officially over. From a fantasy perspective, perhaps Hopkins will use this as extra motivation in 2016, as if he really needed the help. He remains a dominant WR1.

  • Posted: 7/31/2016 8:32pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins ended his holdout and returned to the Texans Sunday, July 31, the first day of training camp. Hopkins expressed his disappointment in Houston's lack of contract negotiations, but he also stated his desire to help the Texans win a Super Bowl.

    Huddle Up: Well, that lasted all of 24 hours, and while Hopkins is still uphappy his fantasy owners are overjoyed.

  • Posted: 7/31/2016 1:00pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not report to training camp because he is unhappy with his contract and the team is not willing to negotiate an extension. Hopkins can be fined $40,000 for each day of camp he misses and has been placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list.

    Huddle Up: Few things could slow the fantasy momentum of Hopkins, who finished fifth among wideouts last season after hitting career highs across the board with 111 receptions for 1,521 yards and 11 TDs, but unfortunately a pay dispute is one of them. You'd figure this wouldn't last too long, given Hopkins' value to the Texans' offense, but the possibility of unrest is going to need to be baked into the WR's draft stock until we have some more clarity.

  • Posted: 7/24/2016 1:29pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he is not looking for a 'certain range' for his next contract but wants to be paid what he is worth. General manager Rick Smith said he is hopeful Hopkins will be around for a long time.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins still has two more years left on his 4-year, $7.6 million deal, but the Texans will have to ante up sooner rather than later if the wideout has another season close to his breakout year (111-1,521-11) in 2015.

  • Posted: 4/15/2016 9:08pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins' fifth-year option was exercised Friday, April 15. He is scheduled to make $7.915 million in 2017.

    Huddle Up: How long did the Texans take to think over this one as Hopkins' production has increased exponentially over his three seasons, culminating in his career season of a year ago (111-1,521-11). $7.9 million? A straight-up steal.

  • Posted: 2/14/2016 2:21pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said he is working on improving his yards after catch total this offseason since he ranked 118th among NFL players in the category with 201 yards. He said he also wants to work on being a better team leader.

    Huddle Up: In the meantime, Hopkins' improvement in the fantasy numbers dept. has been nothing short of steady and remarkable as he's gone from 52 to 76 to 111 catches, from 802 to 1,210 to 1,521 yards and from two to six to 11 TD receptions in his three NFL seasons.

  • Posted: 2/2/2016 10:00am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, who had three catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Pro Bowl, received praise from former WR Michael Irvin. 'We don't know what the ceiling is,' Irvin said. 'You see the skillset, where he can catch footballs from anyplace in the world. There is no telling what the ceiling can be. He'll be rewriting a lot of records in the NFL.' Hopkins had 111 catches for 1,521 yards and a franchise-record 11 touchdowns in 2015. Hopkins caught a touchdown from four different quarterbacks this year, which is an NFL record.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins' most impressive feat this season was rising above Houston's inconsistent quarterbacking to post the numbers he did; that TD passes from four different QBs is simply amazing. If the Texans are able to find a quarterback this offseason, Hopkins could live up to Irvin's lofty expectations.
