DeAndre Hopkins is good

He's been a bright spot in this awful season

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins only caught six balls for 50 yards during yesterday’s blowout loss against the Dolphins. Normally, that’s the kind of stat line you’d expect a No. 1 receiver with a bad quarterback to put up in a game where the entire team fell apart around him. But Hopkins has been lighting it up every week, and the fact that six catches for 50 yards is an anomaly rather than the norm says everything about how hard he’s worked this season.

Through seven weeks, Hopkins has been a workhorse. Not only does he lead the league in receiving yards with 776, he’s also outpacing everyone in targets at an absurd rate. His 102 targets put him 12 ahead of Julio Jones and on pace to smash last year’s high mark of 184, set by Antonio Brown. The Texans have thrown a total of 327 passes this year, meaning that when they drop back to pass, the ball has sailed toward Hopkins 31 percent of the time. Thirty-one percent. Think about that—when Russ Westbrook uses 31 percent of his team’s possessions, it’s a cosmic occurrence; Hopkins is out here doing that on a football field.


I don't want to see another Houston receiver be a topic of constant "if only he had a better quarterback" discussions.

I don't want him to either but I do find myself wondering what the answer would be to how good he actually would be. Damn we need a quarterback for once..
