2024 RTSports Outlook

Hopkins had a big first season with the Browns. He made an impressive 91.7 percent of his field goals and scored 123 points, which was the 12th best number for kickers. And he missed the last two games of the season because of injury. Hopkins has 120-plus points three seasons in the NFL. He has not been the most consistent kicker but is showing well later in his career. He should get first shot to start for the Browns once again. Hopkins has a strong leg and improving accuracy. He might miss a few kicks he should make but his overall game is solid these days.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Hopkins might be hard pressed to repeat last year but is worth a look for fantasy teams if you want to wait on a kicker. He could have another big season. Expect around 120 points for now but he could exceed that number.

Cleveland Browns PK Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is recovered from the hamstring injury that he suffered last December, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.

From TheHuddle

May 25 11:20am ET

Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said that kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has recovered from the torn hamstring that he suffered on Christmas Eve last year against the Houston Texans that sidelined him for the rest of the season and the playoff loss. Despite being recovered from the injury, Hopkins was a notable absence during organized team activities this week. The Browns also have kickers Cade York and Lucas Havrisik on the current roster, but barring injury, the 33-year-old Hopkins figures to be the team's starting kicker in Week 1 of the 2024 regular season. Despite missing the final two games of the regular season last year, Hopkins finished as the No. 12 fantasy kicker by making 33 of his 36 field goal-attempts and 24 of his 26 extra-point tries. He'll be a fringe fantasy kicker in drafts this fall.

Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Saturday's wild-card playoff game against the Houston Texans after missing practice all week. Hopkins will miss his third straight game due to his hamstring injury. Riley Patterson, who has served as Cleveland's kicker the last two games with Hopkins out, will likely be elevated from the practice squad to the 53-man active roster for Saturday's playoff contest. The 24-year-old was the Detroit Lions' primary kicker for 13 games this year before getting cut and latching on with the Browns. In 15 total games between both teams this year, he's gone 16-for-18 on field-goal tries and has miss three of his 44 extra-point attempts. Fantasy managers should be looking for better options at the position on wild-card weekend.

Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) missed a second straight day of practice on Wednesday. Head coach Kevin Stefanski said on Tuesday that Hopkins is unlikely to play in the wild-card game on Saturday against the Houston Texans. The 33-year-old also missed the final two games of the regular season with his hamstring injury and isn't going to be available for fantasy managers this weekend. In his first year with Cleveland, Hopkins made 33 of his 36 field-goal attempts and 24 of his 26 extra-point tries in 15 games played. Riley Patterson filled in for Hopkins the last two weeks and went 6-for-7 on his extra points and made his only field-goal attempt. Before coming to Cleveland, the 24-year-old went 15-for-17 on field goals and 35-for-37 on extra points in 13 games for the Detroit Lions. Fantasy managers should look for better kicking options on wild-card weekend.

Jan 9 2:50pm ET

Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) is unlikely to face the Houston Texans in the AFC Wild Card game on Saturday, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski. It's bad news for Cleveland in a critical time of the season, but it looks like Riley Patterson will handle the kicking duties. Hopkins was excellent during the regular season, connecting on 33 of his 36 field goal attempts. He went eight-for-eight on tries of 50-plus yards. Patterson went 15-for-17 for the Detroit Lions this season before being released and signed by the Browns.

Jan 5 1:20pm ET

Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for the Week 18 regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. It will be the second straight missed game for the 33-year-old booter. Cleveland will be hoping Hopkins will be ready to roll for the wild-card round of the postseason next week. When healthy, Hopkins has been a fantasy relevant kicker this year, especially since quarterback Joe Flacco arrived and jumpstarted this offense. In 15 games in his first year with the Browns, Hopkins has gone 33-for-36 on field-goal attempts and 24-for-26 on extra points. With Hopkins being held out again this weekend, Riley Patterson will do the kicking for Cleveland and should be avoided in fantasy lineups with the Browns resting some of their key starters, including Flacco.

Jan 4 12:50pm ET

Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice on Thursday. Hopkins was forced to sit out on a short week in last Thursday night's win over the New York Jets and doesn't appear close to returning for a meaningless Week 18 regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday. The most likely scenario is that the Browns will rest the 33-year-old kicker and any other injured players like receiver Amari Cooper (heel) as they rest up for the wild-card round of the playoffs next week. Cleveland is already locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC, so Hopkins is likely to miss a second straight game this weekend. If that's the case, Riley Patterson will do the kicking for the Browns in Week 18. Fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a kicker.

Cleveland Browns kicker Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) remained sidelined at practice on Wednesday. Hopkins wasn't able to kick in the Week 17 win over the New York Jets last Thursday night and might be forced to miss a second straight game this Sunday to close out the regular season against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns are already locked into the No. 5 seed for the playoffs, too, so they aren't going to rush any injured players back onto the field for this one in a meaningless game. As of right now, the veteran 33-year-old booter is looking like a fantasy option to avoid in fantasy lineups in Week 18, even if he ends up being active. Riley Patterson filled in for Hopkins in Week 17 and would get the starting nod again if Hopkins is ruled out this weekend.
