Scouting report

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Chicago Bears

DeAndre Hopkins has missed the past three games due to injury, but he’s set to return this week. Prior to the injury, he scored seven touchdowns in eight games, putting up fringe WR1 numbers despite not eclipsing 100 yards receiving.

This week, Hopkins faces a Bears defense that ranks 24th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. It’s a good matchup for Hopkins to return to action, and fantasy managers should feel good about inserting him into their lineups as a solid WR2 option.

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at San Francisco 49ers

DeAndre Hopkins played hobbled last week and missed large portions of the game. Still, he caught two balls for 66 yards, including a long touchdown that was wiped off by a facemask penalty. Hopkins’ targets haven’t been where they were a year ago, but he’s still providing a solid enough floor for fantasy managers to keep him active in most weeks.

This week, Hopkins faces a 49ers defense that ranks 21st in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Watch his injury status, but as long as he’s active and good to go, he should be active in all leagues, especially with A.J. Green on the COVID list. Start him.

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Green Bay Packers

DeAndre Hopkins had only 53 yards last week against the Texans, but he found the end zone for the seventh time this season and caught seven of nine passes thrown his way. Hopkins has been very touchdown-dependent this season, but at least he’s scoring at an impressive clip. He has four in his last three games and is on pace for 17 on the season, which would be a career-high for him.

This week, Hopkins faces a Packers defense that ranks 27th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. Expect another busy day in targets for the veteran all-pro, which should make for a good fantasy day against a Green Bay secondary that has struggled a bit without Jaire Alexander in the lineup. Start him every week.

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Houston Texans

DeAndre Hopkins only caught three balls for 55 yards last week against the Browns, but he did catch two touchdowns. Hopkins has been surprisingly very touchdown-dependent this season. Luckily, he has six, but he hasn’t eclipsed 100 yards or six receptions in any one game.

This week, Hopkins faces a Texans defense that ranks 7th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. He’s a must-start since he gets consistent targets and is one of the best receivers in the game. He seems like he must be due for a big outing at some point, and his talent and role in the offense still give him a high floor. Start him.

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Cleveland Browns

DeAndre Hopkins had six catches for 87 yards and a touchdown last week against the 49ers. Hopkins has been fine, and has four touchdowns on the season, but he hasn’t really put up Hopkins-style numbers, considering where he was drafted in fantasy leagues. The Cardinals have been spreading the ball around, and it’s hard to figure out which Arizona pass-catcher to bank on. That being said, Hopkins is still starter material, he’s just had a tempered stat line compared to what we usually expect, averaging a modest 4.6 catches, 62.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game so far.

This week, Hopkins faces a Browns defense that ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. However, they were just in a shootout with the Chargers, where Mike Williams ate them alive. The Cardinals have a prolific offense and this should be another exciting offensive game. We have Hopkins ranked as a low-end WR1 option this week and he should be active in all formats.

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. San Francisco 49ers

DeAndre Hopkins had four catches for 67 yards last week in a victory over the Rams. He’s been held in check the last couple of weeks, but he still led the team in targets and is still an elite receiver. It’s a little concerning for fantasy managers with Hopkins that Kyler Murray seems to be so good at spreading the ball around, but you have to think Hopkins is still going to produce.

This week, Hopkins faces a 49ers defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers. While they have secondary issues, their pass rush is solid enough and Arizona’s proclivity to use multiple receivers puts Hopkins down around WR2 territory in our rankings. You’re not sitting him, but temper expectations a bit this week.

ARI WR DeAndre Hopkins - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Los Angeles Rams

DeAndre Hopkins gutted it out last week despite being hampered by a rib injury. Not sure how much the injury impacted him, but he was limited to just three catches on six targets for 21 yards. That was despite playing 91% of the snaps, so it’s possible the ribs were a factor. Monitor his status closely going into next week.

This week, assuming he’s active, he has a tough task against the Rams. While the Rams rank 25th in aFPA to opposing wide receivers, Hopkins will likely draw Jalen Ramsey, and these two have had some battles against each other. Last year, Ramsey got the better of Hopkins, allowing just 12 catches, 87 yards and a touchdown over two games. You probably aren’t in a situation where you’d want to sit Hopkins, but if you have another option with fewer health concerns and a better matchup, it might be worth considering. We have him ranked as a WR2 this week, based on health and the matchup.
