Did Hopkins torch his former team the way that the majority of fantasy managers would have liked to see? No. However, there were a lot of positive takeaways from last week's matchup against the Texans for Nuk. One of the biggest concerns for Hopkins so far this year has been the fact that he's not seeing as many targets as he has in previous seasons. Hopkins has just 47 targets on the year now up to this point, but he had a whopping 73 targets at this point last year. The target share has been split pretty evenly across the board in Arizona so far, but that was not the case on Sunday. Hopkins had a 32% target share against Houston and it translated to a 7-53-1 stat line. Looking ahead to week eight, fantasy managers are hoping that that target share is here to stay as the Cardinals take on the Packers and their banged-up secondary. Nuk should draw coverage from Eric Stokes for the majority of the game this week and Stokes is going to have his hands full as a rookie DB. He's performed well so far this season, but guarding a player like Hopkins is an entirely different task. Nuk can be viewed as a mid-range WR1 this week.

Hopkins is averaging 17.2 fantasy points over his last 3 games and he should be an elite WR1 against a Packers D that is 7th among fantasy wide receivers.
