Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins passes concussion tests, cleared to play

Texans rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins @Nukdabomb has been given the green light to play Monday night versus the Chargers after passing his final concussion test. Hopkins suffered a concussion on Aug. 17 during the Texans' second preseason game. It is the second known concussion of his football career as Hopkins was knocked unconscious and sustained a concussion in a 2011 car crash.

Fantasy Analysis:

I don't think Hopkins has as much upside as rookie wideouts such as Tavon Austin and Kenbrell Thompkins. But as a WR5 in 12-team leagues, he is a safe choice.
