DeAndre Hopkins

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.

DeAndre Hopkings hauled in both of his targets for 31 yards in Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Hopkins did not see much action as the Texans wanted to see their other receivers out on the field. Everyone knows that Hopkins is one of the top ten wide receivers in the NFL and should be considered in the first round of drafts in fantasy leagues.

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 Osweiler 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

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.

Hopkins is QB proof but not volume proof.

Hopkins' 111 catches in 2015 was second to only Brown and Jones. Osweiler a projected upgrade at QB.

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

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.
