Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is entering the final two years of his rookie deal as one of the NFL's brightest young star wide receivers. During a recent sit-down with ESPN's Tania Ganguli, Hopkins said "I just want to be treated for what I'm worth" in regards a new long-term deal with the club. When asked if there was any movement in negotiations on a new deal, Hopkins replied, "You know, that's between my agents and the Texans. I love this city. I don't want to play anywhere else but here. So the rest will work itself out, hopefully." (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: DeAndre Hopkins is entering his fourth season in the NFL coming off of a career year. In 2015, Hopkins appeared in all 16 games and caught 111 targets for 1,521 and 11 touchdowns including six 100-yard receiving games. Hopkins should be considered a high-end WR1 who will likely be one of the first wideouts selected in the draft. He could have an even bigger year in 2016 if Brock Osweiler becomes the talent that the Texans paid him to be.

In 2015, DeAndre Hopkins finished 3rd in receiving yards with 1,521. Hopkins led all receivers in red zone targets with 30. He was able to turn those 30 red zone targets into 8 TDs. He had a total of 11 TDs on the season. The signing of former Denver Bronco QB Brock Osweiler and the release of Brian Hoyer should be a positive for Hopkins. I have projected 12 TDs and 1,600+ receiving yards for Hopkins this season.

Your fantasy draft is underway, and you are about to make your first pick. You have decided to select a wide receiver. Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr., and Julio Jones have all been taken. You have determined that your best available option is either DeAndre Hopkins, or A.J. Green. But you need to make a choice between the two Pro Bowlers, and precious seconds are being confiscated by an unforgiv...

He turned one of the NFL's worst QB situations (he caught passes from four different scrubs) into 111 catches, 1,500+ yards and 11 TDs - could be even better if new QB Osweiler proves himself to be worthy of the large deal he signed

Although Brown, Beckham and Jones are on another planet, Hopkins might have the second tier all to himself. He somehow hauled in 1,521 yards for 11 touchdowns with Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallet, TJ Yates and Brandon Weeden throwing to him. Replacing those guys with Brock Osweiler should go a long way, and Hopkins has yet to hit his prime so he could very well jump into the other-world tier this season.

Hopkins is special, but they have a lot more mouths to feed. Also, I am not a fan of Osweiler at QB.

Nuk has some extra help and a new QB, so Texans should be a little more efficient but numbers aren't for sure going to be better.

Hopkins had 111 receptions for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns and he could be even better if QB Brock Osweiler develops into a quality NFL starter. It also helps that they added WR Will Fuller and WR Braxton Miller in the NFL Draft, that should make teams pay if they put too much attention on him.

Hopkins would easily go ahead of Dez Bryant if he just had a quarterback to throw him the ball, so the Texans went out and signed Brock Osweiler, a quarterback, who at times has thrown the ball. Osweiler is not going to tip the scale much for me though. Is he better than Brian Hoyer? I would like to think he is, but he hasn't shown me enough yet. Last season, Hopkins had 100-yard receiving games from four different quarterbacks, which is obviously a record, but not one he wants. But even if Osweiler doesn't turn out to be the next Johnny Unitas, we know Hopkins can perform under any circumstances, and that's a great asset to have in a fantasy player.
