Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught 12 passes for 147 yards in Houston's Week 17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hopkins has three consecutive games with 100 or more yards heading into a first round playoff matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, who held Hopkins to 36 yards in Week 14. Hopkins will be one of the top DFS options during the first weekend of the playoffs, but he does present some risk after seeing how well the Colts contained him in the last meeting.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins caught nine passes for 104 yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. It was his second consecutive game with over 100 receiving yards. Houston will need to rely on Hopkins even more in Week 17 against the Jaguars with wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) out, though it's not the best matchup for Hopkins, who had 50 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting of the season. Jacksonville will devote a lot of attention to shutting down Hopkins, but his target share and potential to snag a red zone score makes him a must-start fantasy option.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle), who was questionable to play in Week 16 against the Eagles, tested his ankle in pregame warmups and gave the thumbs up. He will suit up on Sunday. In an excellent matchup against Philly's soft secondary, Hopkins is a must-start elite WR1, even if he's not fully 100 percent healthy.
