While he got off to a slower than usual start to the year, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is still in the top-10 in fantasy scoring at his position this season and should be considered a must-start WR1 going into Sunday's meeting with the Tennessee Titans. In 12 career games against Tennessee, Hopkins is averaging 99.5 yards per game, with at least one 100-yard game each season. He's coming off a seven-catch, 120-yard effort against the Broncos and should have a good chance to pull off another strong fantasy performance in Week 15.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his 13 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14. He also ran once for 12 yards.
Fantasy Spin: It was a season high in receiving yards for Hopkins, and he has yet to finish with fewer than five catches or 40 receiving yards in a game this year. He has also caught five touchdowns in the last five games. He's one of the steadiest WR1 options.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos, finishing with seven catches for 120 yards while also adding a 12-yard run to the mix. He was targeted 13 times after not getting double-digit targets in the last two games. With Will Fuller (hamstring) out, Hopkins once again was the main target for quarterback Deshaun Watson, who threw 50 passes in a game where the Texans struggled.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins faces a tough one on Sunday, as Houston faces a Broncos team that allows the fifth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Add in that Hopkins has been targeted eight times in each of the last two games after a five-game stretch with double-digit targets and you get some reason for concern. Not enough concern to even think about benching Hopkins, as his upside is just too big. Maybe you don't play him in your DFS lineup this week because of the matchup, but you have to play him in season-long leagues and hope his talent and his usage help him to a strong day.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins hauled in 5-of-8 targets for 64 yards in the Texans Week 13 win against the New England Patriots. Hopkins was kept in check for most of the game by Stephon Gilmore, but he was able to salvage his fantasy day with a touchdown pass to Deshaun Watson on a trick play in the fourth quarter. Hopkins has another tough matchup on his hands in the first week of the fantasy playoffs with the Denver Broncos on deck in Week 14. The matchup-proof wide receiver will slot in as a WR1 for that matchup.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in five of his eight targets for 64 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots. He also got credit for a 6-yard TD pass on a trick play.
Fantasy Spin: While Hopkins had to deal with shadow coverage from Stephon Gilmore, the Patriots also seemed to play more zone than they usually do, enabling the talented receiver to get a few more clean opportunities than wideouts usually get in Gilmore's coverage. Hopkins "threw" for his score on what looked like a bit of a modified speed option play. With at least five catches in every game this year, Hopkins will remain a WR1 option again in Week 14 even in a difficult matchup versus the Denver Broncos.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has caught either 80 yards or a touchdown in five consecutive games and is one of the best wideouts in the NFL. The New England Patriots Defense allows the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Something has to give this week, and while it's likely to be Hopkins, you've still got to keep him in your season-long fantasy lineups. Yes, the Patriots track record this year suggests that they can shut Hopkins down, but there are certain players who you can't bench because of the upside. That's Hopkins this week.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins played well against the Colts on Thursday night, finishing things up with six catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns. After recording just two scores during the first six games of the year, the 27-year-old has turned it up as of late by visiting the end zone in three of his last five games. Hopkins continues to get his looks from quarterback Deshaun Watson, and besides Michael Thomas, he remains the most efficient fantasy wide receiver in the league. He will look to keep things going against a rough Patriots Defense in Week 13.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the team's win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Spin: Hopkins had TD grabs of 30 and 35 yards, giving him his first multi-score game since Week 1 against the Saints. Hopkins clearly benefited from the return of Will Fuller, who offers a much more dynamic threat opposite him than either Kenny Stills or Keke Coutee. Nuk will probably draw Stephon Gilmore next Sunday night, but he remains a must start.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins got off to a slow start to the year, but has four straight games with either 80 receiving yards or a touchdown. It's a good time for the star receiver to get back on the right track, and he'll look to continue that on Thursday against the Colts. In Week 7, Hopkins caught nine passes for 106 yards and a touchdown against Indianapolis, and while this isn't a great matchup for the Texans, Hopkins has been targeted at least 11 times in five straight games and should be able to turn that usage into a strong fantasy outing. Consider him a mid-tier WR1 this week.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was somewhat of a fantasy bright spot in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens, catching seven passes for 80 yards. He had a team-high 12 targets. It wasn't the best game for Hopkins, but it also wasn't the worst game, and with how little the rest of the team did, Hopkins deserves some credit for at least putting up serviceable numbers. He's not quite the threat to be the overall WR1 that he was supposed to be this year, but Hopkins is still a strong fantasy option and arguably the most talented wide receiver in the NFL.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins registered seven grabs for 80 yards on 12 targets in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Fantasy Spin: Hopkins failed to find the end zone for the seventh time in the past nine games, but at least the yardage total was somewhat respectable. He also has seven or more catches in each of the past six outings, and five or more in all 10 of his appearances. Hopkins remains an obvious must-start in all PPR leagues heading into Thursday's Week 12 matchup with the Colts. He had nine catches for 106 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting in Indianapolis in Week 7.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins will be tested this Sunday when the team travels to Baltimore to face a tough Ravens secondary. Hopkins has been the centerpiece of the Houston offense getting double-digit targets in four straight games with either 100 yards or a touchdown in each of his last three. Hopkins is likely to see shadow coverage from Marlon Humphrey which could limit Hopkins' appeal in DFS, but he's an obvious must-start WR1 in any seasonal format in what could be a high scoring game.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught eight passes for 48 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. He was targeted 11 times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Hopkins was targeted at least 10 times in the fourth straight game and posted his fourth touchdown on the season. He remains one of the top receivers in the NFL and is a must-start option no matter the opponent.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had eight receptions on Sunday as the Texans hopped across the pond to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. It wasn't a huge yardage game for Hopkins, who finished with just 48 yards, but a late touchdown catch helped him finish with a solid fantasy line. It's been a frustrating year for Hopkins owners, but he seems to be turning a corner lately. We'll see if he's able to return to the top of the wide receiver position after Houston's bye week.
Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has recorded at least five receptions in 11 straight games dating back to the 2018 season. Only New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has a longer streak, catching at least five passes in 13 straight games.
Fantasy Spin: Hopkins faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9, and while he managed just five catches for 40 yards the first time these teams met, it is important to note that Jalen Ramsey played in that game. Without Ramset in the fold, expect a stronger showing from one of the steadiest receivers in the NFL this time around.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has gotten things back on track lately, posting back-to-back 100-yard games for the first time all season. But Houston faces a tough Jaguars Defense on Sunday and even with Jalen Ramsey no longer on the team, Hopkins could have a difficult time finding space against his former teammate, cornerback A.J. Bouye. You're still starting Hopkins and assuming that Will Fuller's (hamstring) continued absence will keep Houston funneling targets towards their star receiver, but there's enough chance of things going wrong to introduce a little worry into the equation.

Fantasy Spin: Hopkins continues to be one of the more reliable receivers in fantasy football and is a must-start option no matter the opponent.
