Stock Rising- DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins recorded 6 receptions on 11 targets for 69 receiving yards in week ten against the Arizona Cardinals.

Analysis: Hopkins is putting together a solid rookie campaign. He has five 60 plus receiving yard games thus far to go along with 2 touchdowns in nine games. Hopkins has 12 receptions on 21 targets for 199 receiving yards over his last three games. With Arian Foster out for the rest of the season Houston will pass a bit more which should translate into more targets and receptions for the former Clemson Tiger.

Hopkins isn’t a PPR stud nor will his touchdown production blow anyone away but he is on pace for nearly 1,000 yards. He makes a solid depth add when considering six teams still have bye weeks which include Philly, Cincy and Dallas. Hopkins is available in 30-50% of fantasy leagues.

Another player of note this week is James Jones. The Packers have problems at quarterback at the moment but Jones is worth stashing if he’s available. Jones caught 4 balls on 7 targets for 44 yards from two quarterbacks today and most importantly he looks healthy. Jones is available in 3-10% of fantasy leagues.
