Texans' O'Brien: WR DeAndre Hopkins can 'be one of the best'


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Texans head coach Bill O'Brien is very encouraged by the performance of wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins last season, per ESPN. O'Brien went as far as to say that Hopkins can be one of the best.

"He had a really productive year," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "The thing that we really like about Hop and that we want him to continue to do is his work ethic. He’s a hungry player. He works every single day. He came into the spring a year ago and he was learning the offense and thinking out there, then all of a sudden you could see all the work he put in and learning, he just took off."

Due to the departure of wide receiver Andre Johnson, the progression of Hopkins will be under the microscope as he is now the focal point of the passing offense.

"We just want to see him continue and progress," O'Brien said. "We think he can be one of the best, we think he is one of the best. We have a lot of confidence in him and we’re looking forward to seeing him progress when the offseason program starts."

In two years with the Texans, Hopkins has reeled in 128 receptions for 2012 yards and eight touchdowns.


Bill O'Brien: 'Sky's the limit' for WR DeAndre Hopkins


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/26/2015) With Andre Johnson now in Indy, DeAndre Hopkins enters the 2015 season as the Texans' undisputed No. 1 receiver.

“He had a really good year last year and the sky’s the limit with Hop (Hopkins)," coach Bill O'Brien told NFL Network. "He’s an excellent young player who works extremely hard and we’re looking forward to putting together our whole receiving corps and he should be the leader of that.”

Hopkins led Houston with 1,210 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns last year. He has 128 catches for 2,012 yards and eight scores in his two NFL seasons.


Texans' DeAndre Hopkins underwent surgery on wrist


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins revealed he recently had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right wrist, reports CBS Houston.

Hopkins was listed on the Week 17 injury report with a wrist injury. The surgery placed a pin and rod into his wrist. Hopkins had to wear a cast, which was removed Saturday. He said the procedure was minor and he's a couple of weeks away from resuming normal activities.


DeAndre Hopkins in elite company after two seasons


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/3/2015) DeAndre Hopkins' first two seasons compare favorably to those of his teammate, Andre Johnson, the greatest player in Texans' history, notes the team's website.

Hopkins has caught 128 passes for 2,012 yards and eight touchdowns while playing with a carousel of quarterbacks. In Johnson's first two years, playing mainly with quarterback David Carr, he hauled in 145 balls for 2,118 yards and 10 scores.

Hopkins bested Johnson in yards per catch (15.7 to 14.6) but had 360 fewer yards after the catch.

Hopkins won't turn 23 until June. With Johnson slowing down at age 33 -- he averaged 62.4 receiving yards, lowest since 2005 -- Hopkins enters 2015 as the team's most explosive option, a solid bet to lead Houston in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.


Texans WR Hopkins ends year on sour note


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins didn't exactly finish the year with a flourish. He caught just two passes for a season-low five yards in the win over Jacksonville on Sunday.

Hopkins did complete 2014 with 76 receptions for 1,210 yards and six touchdowns.


Texans list lengthy injury report for Week 17


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Texans have listed tight end Garrett Graham (ankle), inside linebacker Mike Mohamed (concussion), wide receiver DeVier Posey (calf) and quarterback Tom Savage (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

Meanwhile, guard Brandon Brooks (knee, ankle), tackle Tyson Clabo (shoulder), inside linebacker Brian Cushing (ankle), tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder), running back Arian Foster (rest), wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (wrist), cornerback Kareem Jackson (back), wide receiver Andre Johnson (rest), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (ankle), outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus (back, finger), nose tackle Ryan Pickett (groin), guard Xavier Su'a-Filo (back) and inside linebacker Jeff Tarpinian (knee) were all labeled as probable.


Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins set to play Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Despite not practicing during the week, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will play Sunday against the Ravens.

Hopkins has been suffering from an ankle injury, but has not missed a game this season while catching 69 passes for 1,167 yards and six touchdowns.


Texans' DeAndre Hopkins unable to practice on Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins did not practice on Wednesday.

Hopkins is dealing with an ankle injury, and was unable to go. Hopkins has played in all 14 games this season. He has 1167 yards on 69 receptions. Hopkins has caught six touchdowns. His status will likely be determined based on how much he is able to practice on Thursday and Friday. 


Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posts 77 receiving yards vs. Colts


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins led his team with five receptions and 77 receiving yards in his tema's 17-10 loss to the Colts in Week 15.

Hopkins was targeted on more than half of Houston's passes, seeing 13 targets on 25 attempts, but was unable to do much with rookie Tom Savage at quarterback for most of the game. He now owns 69 receptions for 1,167 yards and six touchdowns with just two games remaining. While a matchup with the Ravens secondary in Week 16 would normally be a boon, he'll have to contend with question marks at quarterback moving forward.


Texans' Hopkins has quiet outing following 200-yard performance


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had a letdown performance Week 14 against the Jaguars following a 238-yard, two-touchdown performance Week 13. Hopkins did lead Houston in receiving Sunday, but he had just four catches for 49 yards in a 27-13 win.

Hopkins had no touchdowns Sunday, was targeted six times and his longest catch went 28 yards. The Texans are back in action Week 15 at Indianapolis.


DeAndre Hopkins happy to have QB back


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) In two games with Ryan Mallett under center, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins averaged 4.5 catches for 59.5 yards -- not bad numbers, really, but not what he was used to contributing in nine games with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, when he averaged 4.7 catches for 76.0 yards.

When the two reunited Week 13 at Tennessee, they made sure they'd never be separated again. Well, at least not in 2014 ... health permitting, of course. Fitzpatrick found Hopkins nine times for 238 yards -- a career high, as you might imagine -- and two touchdowns. They connected deep down the middle of the field on a 58-yard bomb late in the second quarter and deep along the sideline on a 34-yard throw late in the third. Hopkins also had catches of 23, 31 and 56 yards.

Hopkins showed plenty of big-play ability, and Fitzpatrick, though not a star, proved he's better equipped than Mallett to make use of it. Now that he has his quarterback back, Hopkins looks like a must-start Fantasy wide receiver.


DeAndre Hopkins goes wild in rout of Titans


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/30/2014) Texans wideout DeAndre Hopkins exploded in the Week 13 blowout of Tennessee, setting career highs with nine catches for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Hopkins caught each of his targets and burned the Titans for 58- and 34-yard scores.

Hopkins is up to 1,041 receiving yards after totaling 802 as a rookie. He showed great hands Sunday and was physical after the catch. This was his fourth game this year with at least 100 receiving yards.

Up to six touchdowns, Hopkins visits the Jaguars in Week 14.


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 | Senior Analyst
(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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
