It shows depth at WR that Tate is ranked so low
Hopkins should feast in single coverage
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Tate is a great #3 WR, but his consistency will be on the low-end as the Seahawks are a team that blows other teams out. Which means he has to make his contributions earlier than later. Watch the situation on Percy Harvin develop with the Hip, could lead to Tate climbing this list.
The Texans #1 Pick has a lot of potential. The only problem is the Texans do not throw the ball that often, which means Hopkins may only see 5 Targets a game. That is not good enough for a young player like him who needs to grow, which means Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels owners may see Hopkins as the Texans Killer.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Tate is in a contract year in Seattle and will be the focal point in the Receiving Game. With Percy Harvin likely out for the year, look for Golden Tate to easily surpass his 45 reception / 688 receiving yard mark this year.
The Houston Texans strictly drafted this former Clemson receiver because of Andre Johnsonís age. Hopkins isnít the fastest guy in the league, but heís a phenomenal route runner which allows him to separate from defenders. Last year at Clemson Hopkins caught 82 balls for 1,405 yards and 18 TDís.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Does have some upside but CAR tends to play fairly decent against pass.
Concussion could make him iffy so monitor his status.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
Cleared to play and concussion free, Hopkins may still struggle in his first pro game after missing important practice time.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
The Panthers pass defense is young and untested and probably not that great. They are extremely strong on the defensive line and at linebacker, but Wilson's ability to escape should give Tate some good openings.
His concussion could keep him out of this game. Keep an eye on reports.
