2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Jun-27-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

The table is set for the Texans' 2013 first round pick to have a huge breakout. With aging and disgruntled Andre Johnson's status up in the air, DeAndre Hopkins may become the best option for new quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. In his rookie campaign, Hopkins caught 52 passes for 802 yards and two touchdowns; Expect those numbers to increase. Although Fitzpatrick is not the ideal quarterback, he is still better than anybody Hopkins had throwing to him last season. In 2013, Matt Schaub was a shell of his former self and Case Keenum was just not very good. Hopkins projects as a fantasy WR3 or flex. If Johnson ends up elsewhere after seeking a new team, Hopkins would be ranked higher.

Editor's note: Johnson is the wild card. Hopkins goes from a bench player to a weekly fantasy starter overnight if Johnson leaves. The Texans are already thin at some key playmaker position and losing Johnson would be a gut punch. No Johnson means more bodies in the box taking away the run. Without the run, Fitzpatrick can't use play-action properly. This is a delicate balanace so everyone needs to come back with pads on and ready to go.
