Moving to a new team/offense is never an easy thing to do, especially when you don't get to have an offseason with your new team. Still, you don't trade for someone like Hopkins to not target him like a true No. 1 wide receiver. With Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk in the lineup, it may be hard for him to reach the 150-target mark like he consistently did with the Texans, but Hopkins has shown the ability to be efficient with practically every quarterback he's played with. Still, it drops him just outside the elite tier of Thomas, Adams, and Jones.

DeAndre Hopkins believes he’s the best WR in the NFL

New Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins was on the Jalen & Jacoby show on Thursday and said, “I definitely think I’m the best [WR in the NFL].”

Fantasy Impact

Hopkins went on to state that other top WRs Michael Thomas and Julio Jones both benefit from playing with Pro Bowl quarterbacks Drew Brees and Matt Ryan throughout their entire careers. But Hopkins, who’s caught passes from 10 different QBs since being drafted by the Texans in 2013, doesn’t let that cloud his mind. He said, “I don’t complain. I don’t make excuses. I go out there and work.” Hopkins reiterated his excitement in getting to play with Kyler Murray and hopes that he can build chemistry and play with him for more than three seasons. In Kliff Kingsbury’s run-and-gun, pass-happy offense, Hopkins sees his numbers going up from a season ago. He said, "Oh yeah, absolutely. Obviously I've played with a lot of quarterbacks and put up great numbers, being in offenses that necessarily weren't a pass-first offense. So, myself, being a receiver, of course I see my stats going up.” Over his last three seasons in Houston, Hopkins caught over 100 balls in two of them, and went for over 1,000 yards each year. He caught a total of 31 TDs. It’s scary to think what he’ll be able to do in a high-octane offense being led by an up-and-coming quarterback. He’s ranked as the #5 WR in FantasyPros expert consensus rankings, but could easily finish in the top-3 at his position this season should he build chemistry early with Murray.
