2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)Last updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks
Update (10/20): Hopkins has played very well this season, especially considering he is just a rookie. Look for his stats to improve the second half of the season. The rookie out of Clemson will be a valuable asset for fantasy owners this season and for years to come.
Update (8/21): Hopkins suffered a concussion in the Texans game against Miami last week. At this point it is unclear if he'll be ready to go Sunday against the Saints. Concussions are never a good thing and if this starts to become a regular occurrence, Hopkins' value will plummet.
The rookie first round pick out of Clemson looks to take over the starting role as the Texans' number two receiver. With great hands, speed and route running ability, Hopkins could be a valuable fantasy asset. The issues here are wether Hopkins as a rookie can carve out a spot in his first season and just how many balls will he see in this run heavy offense? If you're looking for a flyer then Hopkins is as good as they come. However, if you need a quality starter, you may want to look elsewhere until this rookie proves he has the stuff to be a fantasy stud.
FOX Sports Jay Glazer tweeted this Friday morning:
"Texans assistants have been informed by Coach (Gary) Kubiak that he has been fired. Coach told them he loves them but has been let go."
Kubiak has been Houston's head coach since 2006 and, prior to today, had been presiding over a team that had lost 11 consecutive games. The Texans' 2-11 record is the worst in the NFL. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will serve as interim head coach.
A very tough year for Kubiak on and off the field ends in the way most thought it would, however maybe not during the season. It's hard to remember that the Texans were 11-1 last year. Then they lost 42-14 to the Patriots on Monday Night Football, and they have gone 4-14 since. The quarterback position led the downfall, and you have to assume the Texans will be looking to upgrade there in the draft. However, Matt Schaub is under contract through 2016 after signing a five-year, $66 million deal in September of last year.
