DeAndre Hopkins eclipses 100 career catches in Week 12 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Texans second-year receiver DeAndre Hopkins had his 100th career reception during a 22-13 loss Week 12 vs. Cincinnati. Hopkins finished with five catches for 39 yards on nine targets.

The 39 yards were Hopkins' third-lowest total this season. He had 12 yards in Week 6 and 22 yards in Week 2.

The Texans are back in action Week 13 vs. Tennessee.


QB struggles hurting Texans' wide receivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett looked competent in his first start, but his struggles proved costly for wide receivers Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins in Week 12's loss to the Bengals.

Hopkins and Johnson, who had 80 and 68 yards in Mallett's first game in Week 11, combined for just 75 yards Sunday. Mallett had issues with his accuracy throughout the game, completing fewer than half of his passes, and that extended to his top two options. On 21 passes thrown to Hopkins or Johnson, Mallett completed just eight.

The Texans' passing game wasn't exactly lighting the world up with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, but he was probably a more reliable option, at the very least. With Mallett under center, it might be tough to rely on either playing moving forward. 


Texans WR Hopkins keeps rolling along with strong effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Emerging Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins provided another productive performance Sunday in Cleveland. He caught just four of his eight targets, but racked up a team-high 80 yards receiving in the process.

Hopkins beat Browns safety Jim Leonhard and cornerback Buster Skrine for a 41-yard gain on the team's second possession of the game, but his most critical catch was a 19-yarder in the fourth quarter in which he broke two tackles, moved the chains and helped ice the victory.

Now on pace for 1,223 yards on the season, Hopkins will attempt to pad his totals when Houston hosts Cincinnati next Sunday.


Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins stays hot Sunday with big game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) The Texans threw for just 203 yards in a Sunday loss to Philadelphia, but wideout DeAndre Hopkins certainly did his part.

Hopkins caught six passes for 115 yards. He snagged five for 93 yards in the second half alone, including a 45-yard catch-and-run to the Philadelphia 21 midway through the third quarter and seven-yard touchdown off a corner route early in the fourth that chopped the deficit to 24-21.

With 17 receptions for 318 yards in the last three games combined, Hopkins now has 42 for 684 on the year. He will catch none in Week 10 - the Texans are on their bye week.


DeAndre Hopkins cemented as top option


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has had some trouble with consistency this season, but he has put that in the past in recent weeks, and he did so again in a 31-21 loss to the Eagles in Week 9.

Hopkins put together his third game in a row with at least five receptions and 95 yards Sunday, and finally found the end zone again as well. He finished Sunday's loss with 115 yards on six receptions, including a 7-yard touchdown grab late. He has at least 8 Fantasy points in each of his last three games in standard scoring, and appears to have emerged as the top option in the passing game.

Hopkins has been targeted 31 times over this three-game stretch, compared to 28 for Andre Johnson. It isn't a clear-cut thing, but Hopkins brings a bit more of a dynamic factor to the offense than Johnson does, and that has become clear recently. The Texans are on bye in Week 10, but Hopkins should be viewed as a solid Fantasy option when the team returns in Week 11 against the Browns. 


DeAndre Hopkins finding consistency


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the team in receiving for the second straight game in Week 8, in a 30-16 win over the Titans.

Hopkins was targeted a season-high 11 times in the game, bringing his two-week total to 20. He hauled in just five of those passes but still finished the game with 95 yards, his second game in a row with at least 90 yards.

Hopkins' production has been inconsistent this season, as he continues to lag behind Andre Johnson in targets, 53 to 75. Still, he has done a ton to make the most of his chances, catching 67.9 percent of passes thrown his way for a team-high 569 yards through eight games.

As the big-play guy in the offense, Hopkins is likely to continue to be inconsistent, but his increased role in recent weeks is certainly a good thing. Fantasy owners should feel good about starting Hopkins as a second receiver in Week 9 against a subpar Eagles' defense. 


Texans DeAndre Hopkins has 203 receiving yards in last two games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had a team-high 95 receiving yards on five catches during a 30-16 win Week 8 at Tennessee. Hopkins was targeted 11 times and his longest catch went for 23 yards.

Hopkins has totaled 203 receiving yards on 11 catches in his last two games. However, he hasn't had a touchdown in four straight games. 

The Texans are back in action Week 9 vs. Philadelphia.


When DeAndre Hopkins is targeted, good things happen


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/21/2014) In Week 7 at Pittsburgh, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was on equal terms with Andre Johnson for once, tying for the team lead with nine targets. It was the first time he got as many targets as Johnson in a game this season, and just as encouraging, it came only a week after getting a season-low two targets.

Hopkins led the Texans with 108 yards on six catches. Despite the disparity in targets, it wasn't the first time he went for more yards than Johnson, but the third. The first came in his only other nine-target game Week 3 at the Giants, when he had 116 yards on six catches.

Hopkins may not get the targets you'd like for a wide receiver to get in Fantasy, but he's efficient with what he gets, meaning when he gets a decent number of targets, like in Weeks 3 and 7, he's almost assured big numbers. With Johnson still the go-to guy for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, though, Hopkins also has the potential to underwhelm any given week.

He's best used as a No. 3 wide receiver in Fantasy, making him a bye-week replacement in some leagues. But if Johnson ever goes down, as he has done all too often in his career, watch out.


DeAndre Hopkins goes over 100 yards for second time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) Texans second-year wideout DeAndre Hopkins recorded his second 100-yard receiving game this season, catching six passes for 108 yards in the loss at Pittsburgh. Hopkins produced one 100-yard game as a rookie.

Hopkins, who shared the team lead with nine targets, lost a critical fumble in the fourth quarter when he was stripped by safety Mike Mitchell on a 32-yard reception. It was his first lost fumble this season, second of his career.

Hopkins visits the Titans in Week 8.


Injured Texans cleared for action


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Several Texans who were on the injury report are active for Monday's game at Pittsburgh.

The list includes defensive end J.J. Watt (thigh), guard Brandon Brooks (illness), linebacker Brian Cushing (knee), wideout DeAndre Hopkins (hand), defensive end Tim Jamison (groin), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee), offensive tackle Derek Newton (elbow), linebacker Brooks Reed (groin), linebacker Jeff Tarpinian (knee). All were listed as probable.

Also suiting up is linebacker Mike Mohamed, who was questionable with a thigh injury.

Jadeveon Clowney questionable on Texans Week 7 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/18/2014) Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is listed as questionable to play in Monday's Week 7 battle with the Steelers after limited in practice for a second straight day Saturday.

Clowney hasn't played since Week 1 while recovering from knee surgery. Linebacker Mike Mohamed (calf) is also questionable to play afer being limited all week. Cornerback Darryl Morris (anke) has been ruled out.

The Texans have a whopping 12 players listed as probable to play Monday, including running back Arian Foster (groin), wide receivers Andre Johnson (ankle) and DeAndre Hopkins (hand), guard Brandon Brooks (illness), center Chris Myers (not injury related), offensive tackle Derek Newton (elbow), defensive ends J.J. Watt (thigh) and Tim Jamison (groin), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee) and linebackers Brian Cushing (knee), Brooks Reed (groin) and Jeff Tarpinian (knee).


Close call between Texans wide receivers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) If you look and Jamey Eisenberg's and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 7, you'll see that Texans wide receivers Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins are separated by just two spots for one and one spot for the other. That, folks, is as close as it gets.

And it's easy to see why. The two have gone back and forth in terms of production all season. Lately, Johnson has been the hot hand, catching seven passes for 99 yards and a touchdown compared to Hopkins' one grab for 12 yards Week 6 against Indianapolis, and as you can see, Jamey at least leans his way

But I think it should be more than a lean. I think the distinction between Johnson and Hopkins is great enough that Johnnson is a start at Pittsburgh and Hopkins, at least in standard 12-team leagues, is a sit.

They key is in the targets. Johnson has 54 to Hopkins' 33, and it's been that way from the beginning. Johnson has gotten at least seven targets every week. Hopkins has only once gotten that many.

The matchup isn't favorable enough for a quarterback of Ryan Fitzpatrick's caliber to sustain two wide receivers. The Steelers rank seventh against the pass, allowing 225.8 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.


Texans' DeAndre Hopkins turns in lackluster game


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins didn't have a great outing Week 6 against the Colts.

Hopkins caught one ball for 12 yards during the contest. He was targeted just twice. Hopkins biggest impact may have come on the Texans final offensive play. After a Ryan Fitzpatrick fumble, it appeared Hopkins gave less than 100 percent effort in order to recover the ball.

Hopkins will hope for more Week 7 against the Steelers. 


Steer clear of Texans wideouts


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Though Andre Johnson has long been a dependable option and DeAndre Hopkins looks like a breakout star, you might want to avoid relying on either in Thursday's matchup between the Texans and Colts in Week 6.

Thursday night games have not been terribly kind to wide receivers this season, with Jordy Nelson, Victor Cruz, Randall Cobb and Julio Jones the only ones topping double figures in Fantasy scoring through five games. Wide receivers overall are averaging more than 40 yards fewer per game on Thursday's than overall.

You might want to take caution with the Texans' receiving duo against any matchup on a Thursday, but the Colts have been particularly tough on opposing wide receivers so far. Indianapolis' defense has allowed a league-low 13.0 Fantasy points per game through five games, with just two wide receivers reaching double figures all season.

Hopkins is by no means unworthy of starting this week, but there is at least reason to take pause. And, though we think Johnson can get going before long, it is better to leave him on the bench in favor of better matchups for Week 6.  


DeAndre Hopkins does all he can


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) When a receiver who has been as hot as DeAndre Hopkins has only six catches for 63 yards, Fantasy owners tend to be disappointed. But Hopkins had only six targets from Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, meaning he caught everything that was thrown at him on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Hopkins had six targets for the second straight week and has 21 targets in his last three games. Receivers tend to struggle on Thursday night and the home matchup against the Colts looked beatable until this week when Indy's secondary kept the Ravens pass game in check. We might consider other options over Hopkins in Week 6, though it'll matter on who else you have. We still ultimately believe that Hopkins is the Texans' best weapon through the air. 


DeAndre Hopkins leads Texans with 63 receiving yards


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the way with a productive performance in an overtime defeat to the Cowboys in Week 5.

Hopkins caught six passes, three of which went for 12-plus yards in the second half. He was targeted six times and finished with a team-high 63 receiving yards, averaging 10.5 yards per grab in a 23-20 defeat.

Hopkins has 24 receptions for 354 yards and three touchdowns over his first five games. He'll lok to get back in the end zone at home against the Colts in Week 6.


Texans receivers could succeed in a shootout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Andre Johnson is still the top target in the Texans passing game, but DeAndre Hopkins has outproduced him so far. Still, Fantasy owners should feel comfortable relying on both in Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Dallas has done a better job than we expected on defense this season, with opposing wide receivers averaging just 16.0 Fantasy points per game. However, this receiving duo has been productive so far, and we expect that to continue; they are averaging 138.3 yards per game through four games.

The Cowboys defensive backfield has held up well, but this receiving duo is too productive at this point to consider benching, especially in what could end up being a shootout. Jamey Eisenberg has Johnson ranked as low as 35th among wide receivers, but Dave Richard's ranking has Johnson inside the top-30. Consider Hopkins a solid starter, with Johnson more of a flex or No. 3 option. 


DeAndre Hopkins looks like the real deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been just about as consistent as they come through four games, as he continues to cement his spot in the team's hierarchy.

Hopkins still isn't the top option in Houston, and it doesn't look like that is going to change anytime soon. Still, he might just be the best receiver there, as he topped 10 Fantasy points for the fourth straight game, with his 64-yard, one-touchdown performance. He is simply making the most of his chances, despite mediocre quarterback play.

Hopkins isn't going to keep scoring three touchdowns in every four games, so there will be some times when the scoring trickles. Still, he looks like the real deal, and has to be considered a solid No. 2 wide receiver, a nice return on your investment this season.


DeAndre Hopkins scores touchdown in Week 4 win vs. Bills


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught five of his six targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in his team's 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4.

Hopkins hauled in a 35-yard pass late in the first half with relative ease after getting behind his defender and took it to the house for his third score of the season. While he didn't have much of an impact outside the touchdown, the second-year receiver has racked up 291 yards on 18 receptions and three touchdowns in his first four games. A favorable Week 5 matchup awaits when the Texans travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys.


Time to trust in DeAndre Hopkins?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/25/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has made a notable Fantasy contribution in all three of his games this season even though he's been out-targeted by Andre Johnson in each. While touchdowns had a lot to do with it the first two weeks, he simply played a bigger role in passing game Week 3 at the Giants, catching six passes for 116 yards. By comparison, Johnson caught four passes for 24 yards.

Now, maybe that wouldn't mean much on its own -- Johnson still had the more targets of the two, after all -- but coach Bill O'Brien assessed Hopkins' performance this way the next day:

"He's having a really good year. We need to do a better job of getting him the ball."

That shouldn't be so difficult Week 4 against the Bills. They rank 26th against the pass, allowing 267.0 yards per game, and have given up the 10th-most Fantasy points to wide receivers.

Dave Richard's ranking, 17th among wide receivers, seems a little high to me, but Jamey Eisenberg's ranking, 27th, seems a low. Top 25 is probably just right and would make Hopkins an advisable starter in standard 12-team leagues.


Texans coach wants DeAndre Hopkins more involved


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien was very complimentary Monday of second-year wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who is averaging 75.7 receiving yards per game and has two touchdowns through the first three weeks. 

O'Brien was impressed with Hopkins' one-handed catch that came off the board because of a penalty on offensive lineman Tyson Clabo. 

"It was a fantastic catch," O'Brien said. "He's having a really good year. We need to do a better job of getting him the ball."


DeAndre Hopkins surpasses 100 yards in Week 3 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Texans second-year wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had his second career 100-yard receiving day and fell 1 yard shy of tying his single-game career high in a 30-17 loss Week 3 at N.Y. Giants. Hopkins finished with six catches for 116 yards.

Hopkins should have set a new career high in receiving yards Sunday, but his beautiful 53-yard, one-handed catch late in the second quarter was wiped out by an illegal formation penalty on Tyson Clabo. 

All but one of Hopkins' catches went for at least 10 yards. His longest catch was 49 yards and he was targeted nine times. Though, Sunday was the first time in three games he did not have a touchdown.

The Texans are back in action Week 4 against the Bills.


DeAndre Hopkins makes it into lineup Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was cleared to play Week 3 at N.Y. Giants after being listed as probable due to an illness. He practiced in full Friday after sitting out Thursday.

Texans injury report dominated by probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) As expected, the Texans have ruled out rookie outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) and safety Shiloh Keo (calf) for their Week 3 game against the host Giants.

Most of the other players are their extensive injury report are probable, though featured back Arian Foster (hamstring), offensive lineman Ben Jones (ankle/knee) and safety D.J. Swearinger (elbow) are questionable.

The probables are linebacker Akeem Dent (hamstring), tight ends Garrett Graham (ankle) and C.J. Fiodorowicz (foot), wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (illness), defensive end Tim Jamison (groin), wide receiver Andre Johnson (ankle), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (foot), nose tackle Louis Nix (wrist) and fullback Jay Prosch (hand).


DeAndre Hopkins gets in the end zone again in Week 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins found the end zone for the second straight week on Sunday against the Raiders in Week 2.

Hopkins was limited to just one grab for 7 yards in the first half, but bounced back with a score after half time. He came down with a 12-yard score in the third quarter. He finished the game with three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown in a 30-14 victory.

Hopkins has seven catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns through his first two weeks of the season. He'll look to score in his third straight game in New York against the Giants in Week 3.
