2013 Fantasy Football Player Profile: DeAndre Hopkins Already an All-Pro?
Name: DeAndre Hopkins
Team: Houston Texans
Position: Wide Receiver
Years Pro: Rookie
Draft stock: (Rising) Houston’s training camp buzz is usually dominated by Andre Johnson, but so far Hopkins has been the talk of the town. This wide receiver got a ton of praise around the draft and getting drafted in the first round by the high-flying Texans only boosted his popularity. Be careful: Hopkins will soar on draft boards in the coming weeks.
2012 fantasy impact: While with the Clemson Tigers in 2012, Hopkins turned heads and was seen as an NFL prospect from the get-go. In fact, the Texans newest wide out caught 18 touchdowns as a senior in 2012! Throw on 1,405 receiving yards and Hopkins’ senior campaign is one of the best in Clemson’s history.
Best-case scenario: Johnson fades and Hopkins’ collegiate success transfers onto the field on Sundays. As a rookie, Hopkins takes the starting gig and runs with it as the 6-foot-1 receiver has 1,000+ receiving yards in his rookie year.
Worst-case scenario: Houston doesn’t give Hopkins the targets we all expected as Johnson, Keshawn Martin and Owen Daniels all get more looks than the rookie. Injuries sideline Hopkins due to his relatively small frame and increased workload.
Where you should draft him: Hopkins is a fringe player as of now. While someone could get brave and draft him as early as the eight round, he’s likely to slip until the 10th round, so keep an eye on him come draft day.
