DeAndre Hopkins RULED OUT Week 17

According to the Associated Press, Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (calf) is officially ruled out for Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

Expected to be a game-time decision, Hopkins will miss his first career game in Sunday's season finale against the Colts with a calf injury. In his absence, expect the Texans' passing game to facilitate through Braxton Miller and Will Fuller. However, even in a plus matchup versus Indianapolis, I'm not trusting any Houston receiving option in Week 17.

DeAndre Hopkins (calf) expected to be out for Week 17

DeAndre Hopkins is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Colts with a calf injury.

Fantasy Impact

With no playoff hopes, Hopkins and the Texans have little reason to risk further injury to Hopkins' calf. In a plus matchup with the Colts, Will Fuller offers sneaky upside, but it'd be a big gamble for championship week. He'd be an upside play in DFS tournament contests.

DeAndre Hopkins hauls in another touchdown

DeAndre Hopkins caught 4-of-6 targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Texans Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Hopkins did not have a catch up until the third quarter where he hauled in a 38 yard catch and ended the drive with arguably the touchdown catch of the year. He tipped the ball with his right hand to himself and somehow had the body control to catch it with his left hand and get both feet in bounds. Hopkins has been spectacular this season with a very poor rotation of quarterbacks (outside of Deshaun Watson). He goes up against the Colts in Week 17.

DeAndre Hopkins goes for 80 and a touchdown

DeAndre Hopkins caught 4-of-13 targets for 80 yards, including a 25-yard touchdown reception, during the Texans’ blowout loss to the stingy Jaguars in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Hopkins once again proved that he is a must start no matter the matchup and fantasy owners were rewarded for sticking with the superstar against Jalen Ramsey and the Jags’ pass defense. With Tom Savage possibly on the shelf for the rest of the season, T.J. Yates once again displayed his likelihood to zone in on Hopkins. 13-of-31 Yates’ targets were directed to Hopkins on Sunday. The matchup gets easier against a worsening Pittsburgh Steelers’ secondary next week.

DeAndre Hopkins active for Week 15

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is officially active for Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Although his playing status was up in the air this week, he will play through his toe injury in Sunday's difficult matchup against the Jaguars. However, despite the tough spot, Hopkins remains a must-start fantasy option in most scenarios due to his massive target share and immense talent. Start him with tempered expectations in Week 15.
