DeAndre Hopkins targeted 13 times in Texans' Week 2 win

DeAndre Hopkins caught 7-of-13 targets for 73 yards in the Texans' Week 2 victory over the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Hopkins was peppered with targets yet again. In Week 1, he had 16 and followed that up with 13 in Week 2. This is promising news for fantasy owners as it looks like Deshaun Watson only has eyes for Hopkins. Hopkins will draw a tough matchup against the Patriots next week, where he figures to be shadowed by Malcolm Butler. The Texans desperately need someone to step up to draw attention away from Hopkins for him to continue being successful.

DeAndre Hopkins targeted 16 times in Texans loss

DeAndre Hopkins hauled in seven of 16 targets totaling 55 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Hopkins is no stranger to poor quarterback play, and Week 1 against the Jaguars was no different. Luckily for his fantasy owners, he was still able to produce. He drew multiple pass interference calls against the ex-Texan A.J. Bouye. Hopkins will be a borderline WR2/3 against the Bengals on Thursday night, given the question marks at quarterback.

DeAndre Hopkins signs contract extension

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Houston Texans and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension.

Fantasy Impact

The Texans locked up their star wideout one week before the start of what was supposed to be his walk year in 2017. In the wake of his new five-year deal, Hopkins is tied to the club until the 2022 season. Once regarded as a middling WR1, Hopkins is currently bordering the back-end WR1/ WR2 tier entering the upcoming fantasy football campaign. With Tom Savage under center, Hopkins could see an increase in his production this year from his bust 78-954-4 stat line he accumulated in 2016.

DeAndre Hopkins remains sidelined with injury

Houston Texans beat writer Sarah Barshop is reporting wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hand) remains sidelined with a hand injury.

Fantasy Impact

It appears Hopkins, who did not practice Monday, has been sidelined with a hand injury since August 9. However, although his injury appears minor, the Texans are electing to take the cautious approach with their star wideout. It wouldn't surprise me if he was shut down for the remainder of the preseason.

DeAndre Hopkins did not play versus Patriots

DeAndre Hopkins did not play in the Texans preseason Week 2 victory over the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

It was announced before the game that DeAndre Hopkins would not play during the game due to a hand injury. This is a non-issue, as the Texans coaching staff has said that they are resting their veteran players in order for them to be ready for Week 1.
