Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught seven of his 13 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in a 38-24 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 14. He also ran once for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: It was a season high in receiving yards for Hopkins, and he has yet to finish with fewer than five catches or 40 receiving yards in a game this year. He has also caught five touchdowns in the last five games. He's one of the steadiest WR1 options.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins hauled in five of his eight targets for 64 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots. He also got credit for a 6-yard TD pass on a trick play.
Huddle Up: While Hopkins had to deal with shadow coverage from Stephon Gilmore, the Patriots also seemed to play more zone than they usually do, enabling the talented receiver to get a few more clean opportunities than wideouts usually get in Gilmore's coverage. Hopkins "threw" for his score on what looked like a bit of a modified speed option play. With at least five catches in every game this year, Hopkins will remain a WR1 option again in Week 14 even in a difficult matchup versus the Denver Broncos.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins tallied six receptions for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the team's win over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Hopkins had TD grabs of 30 and 35 yards, giving him his first multi-score game since Week 1 against the Saints. Hopkins clearly benefited from the return of Will Fuller, who offers a much more dynamic threat opposite him than either Kenny Stills or Keke Coutee. Nuk will probably draw Stephon Gilmore next Sunday night, but he remains a must start.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins registered seven grabs for 80 yards on 12 targets in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Hopkins failed to find the end zone for the seventh time in the past nine games, but at least the yardage total was somewhat respectable. He also has seven or more catches in each of the past six outings, and five or more in all 10 of his appearances. Hopkins remains an obvious must-start in all PPR leagues heading into Thursday's Week 12 matchup with the Colts. He had nine catches for 106 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting in Indianapolis in Week 7.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins has recorded at least five receptions in 11 straight games dating back to the 2018 season. Only New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has a longer streak, catching at least five passes in 13 straight games.
Huddle Up: Hopkins faces the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9, and while he managed just five catches for 40 yards the first time these teams met, it is important to note that Jalen Ramsey played in that game. Without Ramset in the fold, expect a stronger showing from one of the steadiest receivers in the NFL this time around.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins set a season high with 11 catches and tight another with 13 targets for 109 yards in Week 8 versus the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Hopkins' fantasy owners weren't overly thrilled with his production over a five-game stretch prior to last week, but all he is done since then is top 100 yards twice while hauling in 20 receptions. It's probably no coincidence those spiked weeks have come with Will Fuller out this week and playing only a handful of snaps last week. Hopkins is a good bet to keep it going in London against the Jalen Ramsey-less Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9.
