There are a lot of fantasy football owners going gaga over Hopkins in 2018, but I'd warn you to proceed with caution. Not only did the Texans throw a lot more than they wanted to in 2017 because of all the injuries on the defensive side of the ball, but the 9.3 percent touchdown rate by Deshaun Watson is completely inflated. While Hopkins remains one of the safest wide receivers due to his volume, you don't want to pay for last year's performance. Don't forget that he finished as the WR36 in 2016 while seeing 151 targets. I get it, Watson is better than what he's had, but temper those expectations. There were an incredible 10 games where Hopkins saw 11 or more targets in 2017, while no other wide receiver totaled more than eight of those games.

DeAndre Hopkins will not see much action in second preseason game

Coach Bill O'Brien relayed Thursday that DeAndre Hopkins is on track to have a similar workload in Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers as he had in the team's first exhibition game, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fantasy Impact

Since Hopkins did not play in the first exhibition game this must mean that he will not be playing in the second game and if he does it will be a for a few snaps. Fantasy owners do not need to see Hopkins in the preseason to know he will be one of the top receivers to draft.
