DeAndre Hopkins a game-time decision for fantasy owners in Week 16
DeAndre Hopkins has an ankle injury and could end up missing Week 16. We break down the fantasy implications.
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is considered a game-time decision for Sunday’s Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens. Hopkins has an ankle injury and did not practice. Head coach Bill O’Brien is calling him day-to-day.
It’s now known when Hopkins suffered the ankle injury — he played all 72 offensive snaps in last week’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts, finishing with five catches for 77 yards. He filled in as the No. 1 receiver with Andre Johnson concussed. Hopkins is enjoying a successful sophomore season with 69 catches for 1,167 yards and four touchdowns.
Fantasy impact: Hopkins has been a solid WR3 most of the year, but his Week 16 status is not shaping up well despite an appealing matchup with the Ravens secondary. The Texans are down to either Case Keenum or Thad Lewis starting Sunday’s game and Johnson will be back. Hopkins isn’t a realistic starting option for the final week of fantasy season.
