Free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) is considered a long shot to sign with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has been receiving interest from the Bills and several other teams since being released and should find a new team in the next week or two. He likely will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues no matter where he signs.

Free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) is open to signing with the Houston Texans this offseason, according to a source. The Texans likely will have to clear some salary cap space if they want to add Hopkins.
Huddle Up: Hopkins is receiving interest from multiple teams, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if he signs with the Texans or another team. He should be a big part of the passing game no matter where he plays and can be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) could be in the middle of an "arms race" between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills to keep him from the other team, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
Huddle Up: It makes sense how this could be the case, as each team knows Hopkins landing with the other team could dramatically affect their chances of making it to the Super Bowl. With that said, Kansas City and Buffalo are two of the three teams that are the tightest against the cap. Neither team may have the motivation to create more cap room either, as the Chiefs believe Kadarius Toney has the potential to be a viable No. 1 receiver and Stefon Diggs has been one for a while.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills were the only teams to have substantial interest in trading for WR DeAndre Hopkins before he was released by the Arizona Cardinals last week, according to SI.com's Albert Breer. However, settling on contract terms was the biggest obstacle for both and it appears increasingly unlikely that Hopkins will end up with either club unless his asking price goes down.

Free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) is more likely to garner interest from the New England Patriots now that he's a free agent, per sources on Saturday, May 27.

Free-agent WR DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) and the Kansas City Chiefs engaged in discussions with the Arizona Cardinals' permission before the 2023 NFL Draft but talks ultimately went nowhere as Hopkins' contract was the main obstacle, according to Albert Breer of the MMQB. Per Breer, any chance of the Chiefs signing Hopkins now would mean the receiver's price tag would have to come "way down."
Huddle Up: Per Over The Cap, the Chiefs have a mere $652,557 worth of cap room - which ranks 31st in the league. Most teams have the ability to clear cap space to sign a free agent if they really want to do it, but it will be tough - not impossible - for teams like Kansas City and the Buffalo Bills ($1.48 million cap space) to make it happen. Teams with the need for another good receiver that have plenty of cap space include the Carolina Panthers ($27.3 million) and Detroit Lions ($23.7 million).

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins was released Friday, May 26.
Huddle Up: Given the time other teams have had to strike a deal for Hopkins, this move does not come as a surprise. With that said, Hopkins is still such a productive receiver that it is shocking a trade could not be worked out. The Cardinals will take a dead cap hit of approximately $22.6 million while Hopkins likely goes on a bit of a recruiting tour over the next few days. Whenever Hopkins lands, he should be no worse than a high-end WR2.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins took to social media Monday, May 1, and indicated he expects to return to the team for the 2023 season. "I see everybody telling me to stay. Who said I wanna go? Who said I wanna leave? I'm out here working," Hopkins said.
Huddle Up: This is the second "hint" in less than a week that Hopkins will remain with Arizona this season, as new general manager Monti Ossenfort recently said he "does not foresee (a Hopkins trade) happening." Hopkins proved to be very much on top of his game immediately after returning from a six-game suspension last season, tallying 64 catches for 717 yards and three scores in only nine outings. The likely absence of Kyler Murray (ACL) early in the season will hurt his fantasy upside early in 2023, but Hopkins should still be a strong WR2 option in the interim.

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins is not expected to be traded this offseason, according to general manager Monti Ossenfort.
Huddle Up: Hopkins has been part of trade rumors since the season ended, but it seems like Arizona wants to keep him. He is a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues no matter where he plays, but fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if he does move at some point.
