| Perhaps no other player was hurt more by the Texans' poor quarterback play last season than DeAndre Hopkins. Last year, the team seemed more concerned with eating as much clock as it could rather than utilizing Hopkins' play making abilities to muster up something worthy of a highlight reel or fantasy points for that matter. The only games in which Hopkins reached double digit fantasy points were the four games he found the end zone, making him a fantasy bust last season. The good news for fantasy owners in 2017 is that if Tom Savage can't get the ball to Hopkins, then Deshaun Watson will see the field sooner rather than later. The team isn't going to let their superstar wideout decay as their quarterback repeatedly flounders over the entire fantasy campaign.
Barring an injury, the twenty-five-year-old receiver is a lock for 150 targets. His hands are good enough to catch 100 passes in any given year and his down field attributes give him elite yardage potential as well. Tom Savage's only hope at remaining the starter this season lies with his ability to get Hopkins the ball and Watson's scrambling ability will force defenses to cover Hopkins even longer. Hopkins might not reach his true potential in 2017, but both situations point to a borderline WR1 that is currently being drafted in the third round.
| Will Fuller expected to miss Week 11|

FFToday's Take: Expect Bruce Ellington to see increased snaps in Fuller's absence. Ellington will be an interesting dart throw for owners in deep leagues hurting at the wide receiver position, especially with Patrick Peterson expected to shadow DeAndre Hopkins.

“We can’t have the inmates running the prison”

|Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins’ absence from practice today was related to Bob McNair’s comments, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Texans owner Bob McNair made a comment at last week’s ownership meeting that “[w]e can’t have the inmates running the prison” which has caused some Texans player to consider missing practice Friday. Apparently Hopkins followed through. As of now, we expect Hopkins to play Sunday against the Seahawks but stay tuned...
| Texans thin at TE heading into Week 2|
Three tight ends suffer concussions Week 1

|The Texans are extremely banged-up following a hard-hitting loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Texans coach Bill O'Brien said that he expects all five players to miss the game because they're in the NFL concussion testing protocol. That includes all three tight ends, C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson, middle linebacker Brian Cushing and wide receiver Bruce Ellington. (Houston Chronicle)|
FFToday's Take: With the Texans playing Thursday night, there's very little chance any of the tight ends will be available. DeAndre Hopkins saw 16 targets in Week 1 and could see a similar amount in Week 2. Jaelen Strong will also return after serving a one-game suspension.
