After a nightmarish loss to the Cardinals which saw Hopkins’ only target negated by a penalty, his ADP bottomed out near the 12th round on Fantasy Football Calculator. Hopkins has 2 catches on 4 targets for 19 yards and no touchdowns this preseason. (Source: Fantasy Football Calculator)

Fantasy Impact: Before the preseason, there were many glowing reports about the chemistry developing between Fitzpatrick and Hopkins but that has yet to materialize on the field. Until the offense establishes more consistency, there are no Texans receivers worth owning who aren't named Andre Johnson.

DeAndre Hopkins has been the early offensive standout in training camp, as he continues to string together strong performances and impressive catches. With veteran Andre Johnson on the sideline nursing a hamstring strain, Hopkins is developing quite the rapport with quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. (Source: Houston Chronicle)

Fantasy Impact: With each passing day of training camp, Hopkins is looking more and more like a candidate for a breakout season. In just his second year, he is flashing excellent route running ability, combined with the incredible hands that made him the 27th pick of the draft last year. Given that opposing secondaries must still focus on Andre Johnson, Hopkins should be able to carve out a substantial role in the offense, particularly in the redzone. Look for him to improve on his stats from last year (802/2) with solid WR2 value.

Looks to build off a solid rookie year with the help of new QB Fitzpatrick.
Legion Report | Aug 22nd
Hopkins had the 2nd lowest drop rate last season as he only dropped 1 pass on 53 catch-able balls thrown his was, via PFF. Last season Hopkins caught a quiet 52 balls for 802 yards on 91 Targets. With new coach, new offense and new QB, Hopkins is trying to learn another new Offense which is something that troubled him in 2013. This season expect a lot of short passes from QB Ryan Fitzpatrick – 1000 yards seems out of reach.

Poised to take a step up in class in his second pro season.

Flashed elite ability as a rook but was also inconsistent. No QB hurts his potential in 2014.

The QB situation in Houston has to keep question marks above Hopkins head, but otherwise he is one of the most talented WR's in the NFL.

The high hopes we had for DeAndre Hopkins last season faded pretty quickly. Now the hope is that the second-year receiver with the great accolades can adjust to the Texans new offense and improve on the two touchdowns and two games he had with eight-plus Fantasy points he had in 2013. In reality the 802 yards and 52 catches he had last season weren’t bad – they just weren’t enough to keep him hot in Fantasy circles. Though we’re not as excited about him as we were a season ago, we still think he can turn the corner and be a better contributor in 2014. Keep his name in mind when you’re looking for quality receiver depth in the middle-to-late rounds.

Hopkins had a solid season with 52 receptions for 802 yards and two touchdowns. He really needs a viable NFL quarterback to realize his full potential.

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) It may not appear like Andre Johnson is going to hold out, though it doesn’t really matter as second year receiver DeAndre Hopkins is gaining a lot of attention (and rightfully so). Generally we view the third year as

Andre Johnson's uncertain aside, DeAndre Hopkins' tragic path to the NFL has him prepped to handle the weight placed on his shoulders.
