Who would've thought that we'd love to have Brian Hoyer back in order to throw to Hopkins? A year after his breakout 1,500-yard season, Hopkins totaled just 954 yards on 151 targets. Those who have high hopes for him are likely depending on rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson taking over in fast order.Despite catching passes from the same quarterbacks and seeing essentially the same number of targets, Meredith finished with 67 more yards and two more touchdowns than Alshon Jeffery last year. He suffered a broken thumb during OTA's which could derail his ascension up the depth chart, as he's out until training camp. There is plenty of risk considering the Bears signing Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, and Marcus Wheaton, but we also know that there's plenty of upside.

Improved quarterback will make Hopkins a steal on draft day. DeAndre has yet to miss a game in his NFL career. Auction Value $25 Meredith will be the top receiver in the Bears Offense, an 80 plus reception season is very possible. Auction Value $ 14

Deshaun Watson is of course a green rookie, but he - and your uncle Jeff - can throw the ball better than Brock Osweiler. Watson should rely on DeAndred Hopkins this season and help him come back to form.Meredith will take over as the main receiver in Chicago, which at the very least means he should be in line for a big contingency of targets.

Hopkins benefited greatly from having the Texans draft Clemson QB DeShaun Watson. Watson is not proven enough for me to put Hopkins as a WR1, but I think the move puts him back in the high WR3 to low WR2 discussion.
