2019 RTSports Outlook

Hopkins was the top rated fantasy receiver last season, setting career highs in receptions and yards. This is his second straight season finishing first overall in receiver scoring. Hopkins had seven 100-yard games and four double-digit reception games. He had at least five receptions all but two games. Hopkins has 1,000-yard seasons four of five and two of those seasons with more than 1,500 yards. He also has double-digit touchiness three of four. He is 27 years old and in the prime of his career as the top receiver for the Texans. Hopkins has good size and strength, and is a good route runner. Hopkins does a good job of making the tough catch. He has a knack for making the big play downfield and the acrobatic, circus-catch. He is as tough of a cover as any receiver in the league. Fantasy Outlook: The numbers don't lie. Hopkins produces big and should be the first receiver off the board come draft day. He might not improve his reception and yardage numbers this year but could have a few more scores. He should be a top-five pick come draft day. Look for around 100-plus receptions, 1,500 yards and 13 or so scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

The 27-year old Hopkins will enter his seventh season with a massive list of credentials that justify drafting him first among the elite tier of wide receivers. His exceptional collection of numbers includes leading his position in PPR scoring and snaps last season (1,084/99%), while also finishing second in receiving yards (1,572), and yards-per-game (98.3), third in receptions (115), fourth in red zone targets (25), and touchdowns (11), fifth in targets (163), and second in percentage share of his teams air yards according to Next Gen Stats (44.04%). Hopkins was also the only receiver to garner 10+ targets in every game from Weeks 13-17, established a career best 9.6 yards-per-target average, and his stellar 2018 output was consistent with the statistical excellence that he has consistently delivered throughout his career. Despite their potential to function as productive receiving weapons, Will Fuller and Keke Coutee misseda combined 19 games last season while Fuller has now been sidelined for 17 matchups during his three years. However, Hopkins has missed only one contest since arriving in Houston and will sustain his presence among the league leaders in every major category. Hopkins can be secured confidently on your all rosters in the middle of Round 1.

Player Notes
Jul 10 10:33pm ET

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has scored 24 touchdowns in 31 games since the start of the 2017 season.

Fantasy Spin: Hopkins has always been a productive receiver, but his numbers have seen a boost since the arrival of Deshaun Watson. He will be the focus of the Houston passing attack again in 2019, and he should be among the league leaders in most receiving categories. Hopkins is in the mix to be the first receiver selected in fantasy drafts.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins averaged 3.11 yards per route run from the slot in 2018, the third-highest average among qualified receivers per Pro Football Focus.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said Saturday, June 8, he endured a tough season in 2018 in which he had to deal with nagging pain from foot and shoulder injuries and overcome mental hurdles. 'Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally,' Hopkins told the Houston Chronicle. 'It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn't.'

Fantasy Spin: Hopkins still played in 17 games, including a playoff contest, and hit career highs with 115 receptions, 1,572 yards and a 70.6 catch percentage to finish as fantasy's fourth-ranked wideout. He's a no-doubt WR1 -- if not the top-ranked wide receiver -- in all formats for 2019.

Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (foot, shoulder) said he played through more pain in 2018 than at any time in his six-year career. He played through a nagging foot injury and a serious shoulder ailment in the playoffs and finished with 115 catches for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns for first-team All-Pro honors for a second straight season. "I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn't," Hopkins said. He said he tore ligaments completely off the bone in the playoff loss to the Colts, but he's been rehabbing in the offseason and expects to be ready for training camp. Hopkins will be a first-round pick as one of the top wideouts off the board.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) has been recovering from an ankle injury this offseason but should be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Spin: Hopkins has been one of the top receivers in the NFL for several years and will continue to be the focal point in the Texans passing game. He should be one of the first receiver selected in fantasy drafts in 2019.

From TheHuddle

Feb 10 3:03pm ET

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins set a Pro Football Focus-era record (since 2006) for the most catchable targets (105) without a drop (minimum 40 targets) in 2018.

Fantasy Spin: Hopkins set personal single-season marks for receptions (115) and yardage (1,572) and finished as the top wideout in PPR leagues and second in standard-scoring formats. He'll be one of the top non-RBs to come off the board in the drafts this summer.
