2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Nov-21-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/21): Hopkins has been tremendous this season. Through nine games, he has 71 receptions for 927 yards and seven touchdowns. He's only had two games in which he didn't catch over 150 yards or score a touchdown. In his only two down games he still caught at least five passes for 50 yards. In those games he was covered by top corners Josh Norman and Brent Grimes. He's developed into an elite WR1 and is well out of Andre Johnson's shadow. He's going to be a star for a long time.
Hopkins had a breakthrough sophomore season as he caught 76 passes for 1,210 yards with six TDs on 127 targets. His defining moment last year came in Week 13 against the Titans. On that day, he caught all nine of his targets for 238 yards and two touchdowns. For the year, DeAndre finished only four games with more than nine targets. He ended three other games with more than 100 receiving yards. Hopkins also started to offer some consistency in PPR leagues; he had 10 games with at least five catches. With Johnson gone, DeAndre will have an even greater opportunity to catch the ball. The downside is that he will now see No. 1 cornerbacks on a weekly basis and more double coverage. Last year, Johnson was targeted 146 times, so Hopkins shouldn't be hurting for looks. He has yet to take part in OTAs following offseason wrist surgery, but he's expected to be ready for training camp. His 2015 value will ultimately be determined by an improvement in his career catch rate (58.7 percent) and better play from under center. At minimum, DeAndre will have a 90-catch opportunity, close to 1,400 yards and a chance at double-digit TDs.

|6.08||KFFL - I likely would have taken Tate or Rice here. In a way, I am happy they both went right before this pick. Hopkins should have a strong season and is likely my second flex play each week.|
