Texans receivers could succeed in a shootout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:47 pm ET) 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.


DeAndre Hopkins hauls in 76-yard TD catch Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Texans second-year receiver DeAndre Hopkins saw his scoring slump end at nine games, as he hauled in a career-high 76-yard touchdown catch during a 17-6 win Week 1 vs. Washington.

Hopkins' touchdown came with 4:15 left in the second quarter and gave Houston a 7-6 lead. He caught a second-down pass from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick at the Redskins' 40-yard line and then made one defender miss on his way to the end zone for his third career touchdown.

Hopkins finished with 89 yards, which trailed only Andre Johnson's 93 yards. Hopkins had four catches on five targets.

The Texans are back in action Week 2 at Oakland.


DeAndre Hopkins looks to end scoring slump Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) It has been nine games since Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has hit paydirt. He will look to end his scoring slump in the 2014 season opener against the Redskins.

Wide receivers totaled 16 touchdowns in 16 games against Washington last season. They also averaged 167.1 receiving yards and 22.1 Fantasy points per week. The Redskins allowed seven 100-yard games to receivers in 2013, but none after Week 9.

Hopkins got off to a pretty good start last season as a rookie, totaling 12 catches for 183 yards and one touchdown in his first two games. Unfortunately, he didn't show the same consistency the rest of the season, making him an unreliable Fantasy option. 

There is a lot of buzz surrounding Hopkins heading into his second season in the NFL. There is talk of breakout potential, but there is also some uncertainty since Houston will open the season with Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has been a journeyman quarterback, running the offense.

Hopkins definitely has sleeper potential this season, but heading into Week 1 he is more of a low-end Fantasy option.


DeAndre Hopkins 'has caught nearly everything'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Texans second-year receiver DeAndre Hopkins "has caught nearly everything" in camp and has starred while Andre Johnson (hamstring) sits out, reports the team's website. Hopkins is "ready for the next step," the report said.

At least for a few plays, he'll battle Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson in Saturday's preseason opener.


DeAndre Hopkins much improved in Year 2


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Texans second-year receiver DeAndre Hopkins "hauled in several impressive catches Saturday, building on his impressive early work in camp," reports the Houston Chronicle.

"He’s one of the guys out there that I think is much improved from April 7, when we started, to where we are now," coach Bill O’Brien told the paper. "He just has to keep it going. He’s a very hard worker. It’s very important to him. He’s a guy that really, in our opinion, gets better and better every day. So just got to keep it going."

The 6-foot-1, 207-pound Hopkins had 52 receptions for 802 yards and two touchdowns last season. With Andre Johnson (hamstring) sidelined, Hopkins "has easily been the Texans’ premier receiver," the paper said.

DeAndre Hopkins not satisfied with rookie season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is having a strong rookie season statistically, but he's not enjoying it. He is expressing self-blame for his team's 2-11 record and 11-game losing streak.

"I feel I can do more personally and take some pressure off Andre (Johnson)," he told the Houston Chronicle. "I'm a hard critic of myself. Sometimes that's a bad thing. But I feel like the games I had 70 yards I could have had 100 with just one more catch."

Hopkins went on to say that he doesn't agree with the average person who believes he's had a good rookie year. He has 44 catches for 707 yards, but just two touchdowns. He has snagged more than three receptions just once since Week 3.
