Draft note
by John Paulsen
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.

HOU WR DeAndre Hopkins - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
This just in: DeAndre Hopkins is good. He's super good. But it goes beyond that. He has a talented young quarterback in Deshaun Watson and gets a huge percentage of his team's targets. Better still, Hopkins makes the most of those targets. He comes off an impressive 2018 campaign, one in which the athletic wideout earned his second straight All-Pro selection and tied Andre Johnson's single-season franchise record with 115 catches. Unlike Johnson, Hopkins did it without a single drop. The former 2013 first-round pick's ability to haul in 105 catchable passes without a drop was a Pro Football Focus record (PFF has been keeping grades since the 2006 season). Better still, the overall production has been consistently high-end. Hopkins has only had two seasons in his six years in the NFL where he has not reached over 1,000 receiving yards (a feat achieved without the greatest of quarterbacks until Watson came along).

Fantasy Downside
Reaching here, but it's certainly possible the healthy return of Will Fuller (coming off an ACL) and Keke Coutee (coming off a rookie season that's more notable for lingering hamstring issues than consistent production) could cut into Hopkins' targets.

2019 Bottom Line
According to PFF, over the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Hopkins has a combined 649.3 points in PPR -- the next receiver that is even remotely close is Antonio Brown with 638.2 points. With an improved offensive line and Watson still under center, 2019 should be another elite year for Hopkins. Expect to pay accordingly.
