    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is a player the team is intent on signing to a contract extension, according to general manager Rick Smith.

    Huddle Up: Nuk saw a huge decrease in production last year, but a lot of it was due to spotty quarterback play. It still has some wondering if his 111-1,521-11 dominance in 2015 was an aberration with two modest lines on each side. The upside is there, and who's to complain if he falls to the low-end WR1 range?

  • Posted: 2/5/2017 11:04am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins was a primary trade target for the New England Patriots during the season. Prior to dealing LB Jamie Collins to the Cleveland Browns for a conditional third-round pick, the Patriots asked for Hopkins in a potential trade for Collins.

    Huddle Up: Collins' tendency to freelance and miss assignments went play any better for Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel than it did for Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia, but the offer is still interesting nonetheless. As it is now, Hopkins has stated he loves playing in Houston and the Texans are interested in extending his contract, so expect him to remain in Texas for the foreseeable future.

  • Posted: 2/1/2017 12:14pm ET

    Houston Texans owner Bob McNair said the team will try to sign WR DeAndre Hopkins to a long-term extension this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins had a disappointing 2016 season and finished with 954 yards and four touchdowns during the regular season. He played better during the playoffs with 11 catches for 132 yards and one touchdown in two games. He will continue to be the team's top receiver in the passing game in 2017 and can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in leagues depending on the quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 1/14/2017 9:12pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 65 yards in a Divisional Round loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was able to find a better connection with Brock Osweiler late in the season and had nine targets in this one, but 2016 will still go down as a bust for 'Nuk' in large part because Osweiler struggled so much in getting him the ball downfield. This offseason should present a nice buy-low window for patient owners, but those in redraft should probably consider him a WR2 at best until they see significant improvement from Osweiler.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 2:36pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 13, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional round playoff game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins will be a big factor in the passing game even though he is dealing with the knee injury. He likely will lead the team in targets during the game and can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 11:51am ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited at practice for the third straight day Friday, Jan. 13, but he will be 'set to go' in the team's Divisional Round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 14, versus the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: He's not listed as questionable or doubtful, so this ensures Hopkins will be out there come kickoff. Nuk should see plenty of work in this one, with the Texans likely to throw his way a lot throughout the contest. If the expected scenario of the Patriots blowing out the Texans plays out, Houston could be passing virtually all game, which only adds up to extra looks for Hopkins. As a result, he does have fine WR1 potential this weekend.

  • Posted: 1/12/2017 4:07pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 12.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins played in all 16 games this season and he'll be out there on Saturday night. He's in an interesting spot, as the Texans are likely to get blown out in New England, meaning Houston could be throwing a lot more than usual to try and keep up. No matter how it plays out, Hopkins looks like a fine WR1 option this weekend for all formats.

  • Posted: 1/12/2017 12:36pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) said his injured knee feels excellent.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 11, but should see his normal workload against the New England Patriots. He posted solid numbers in the Wild Card playoff game but will be facing a tougher defense this week. Owners should consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/11/2017 1:58pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 11.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins probably will be ready to play against the New England Patriots, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He recorded 67 yards and one touchdown in the Wild Card playoff game and will continue to be a main part of the passing game. Owners in fantasy leagues should consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

  • Posted: 1/7/2017 5:06pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins finished with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown in a Wild Card playoff win over the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins had nine targets and showed better-than-usual chemistry with Brock Osweiler, who looked better than he has most of the season as Houston picked up the tempo to run out to an early lead. Hopkins' score with 1:20 left in the second quarter came on a quick 2-yard slant and essentially put the nail in the coffin for the Raiders. Whether the Texans face the Kansas City Chiefs or the New England Patriots on the road next week, Hopkins will hard-pressed to post anything more than WR3 production.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 4:20pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted seven receptions for 123 yards on 11 targets in the regular season finale in Week 17 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins had a disappointing year by his standards, finishing with his lowest yardage total (954) and touchdowns (4) since his rookie campaign of 2013. While Hopkins was a disappointment in the regular season, he still has WR2 ability for those playing postseason pools and DFS.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 3:59pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins finished with eight receptions for 87 yards in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he was targeted 17 times.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins seemed to have quite the rapport with replacement QB Tom Savage, and you can expect that to continue into Week 16 if Savage is tabbed as the starter for Week 16. Hopkins remains more of a low-end WR2 at this point after a disappointing season from a fantasy perspective.

  • Posted: 12/16/2016 6:26pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and isn't listed on the Week 15 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins' value has been capped all year by the play of Brock Osweiler, and he is no more than a WR3 against Jacksonville in Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 5:32pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: It has been a disappointing season for Hopkins, but if he suits up in Week 15, he is still worth starting as a WR3 in a favorable matchup against Jacksonville.

  • Posted: 12/14/2016 4:57pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: It is not known if Hopkins is in any danger of missing Week 15, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He is having a disappointing season and has posted at least 80 yards in only one game this season. Hopkins can still be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues, but owners should not count on a big game from him.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 9:51pm ET

    Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins had two catches for a team-high 33 yards on four targets in the Week 14 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Hopkins has been a major disappointment this season, mostly due to erratic quarterback play. He should be treated as a low-end WR2 going forward despite his high-round draft position in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 6:13pm ET

    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.
