Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has scored 24 touchdowns in 31 games since the start of the 2017 season.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has always been a productive receiver, but his numbers have seen a boost since the arrival of Deshaun Watson. He will be the focus of the Houston passing attack again in 2019, and he should be among the league leaders in most receiving categories. Hopkins is in the mix to be the first receiver selected in fantasy drafts.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins said Saturday, June 8, he endured a tough season in 2018 in which he had to deal with nagging pain from foot and shoulder injuries and overcome mental hurdles. 'Last year was tough, not just physically but mentally,' Hopkins told the Houston Chronicle. 'It's the most banged up I've ever been playing football. I was dealing with serious injuries a lot of people would have sat down for. But we had a good team that depended on me, and I never gave a thought to not playing unless the doctors told me I couldn't.'
Huddle Up: Hopkins still played in 17 games, including a playoff contest, and hit career highs with 115 receptions, 1,572 yards and a 70.6 catch percentage to finish as fantasy's fourth-ranked wideout. He's a no-doubt WR1 -- if not the top-ranked wide receiver -- in all formats for 2019.
