Hopkins has posted back-to-back finishes in the top two (in half-PPR formats) and is one of the safest receiver picks in the first round. One thing to note: His target share in the 10 games that Keke Coutee missed was significantly higher than the target share in the six games in which Coutee played (34.8% vs. 27.7%). This resulted in a PPG that was 13% lower when Coutee was on the field. With Coutee last year, he was more of a midrange WR1 than the No. 1 fantasy receiver in football.
