Hopkins caught eight of 11 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Jaguars in London. He also rushed once for six yards.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins' one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter completed the scoring and erased any doubt about this one. The star wide receiver has caught at least eight balls in each of his past four games, totaling 37 receptions over that span. His yardage output wasn't impressive in this one, but Hopkins made up for that by scoring his fourth touchdown of the season. The buy-low window on Hopkins was open during his five-game touchdown drought, but it has long since slammed shut heading into Houston's Week 10 bye.

Hopkins (thumb) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, but his return to a full session puts the Texans' top wideout on track to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Eight games into the 2019 season, Hopkins is fourth in the NFL with 81 targets, which has yielded a ppr-friendly 60 catches (second in the league) for 617 yards and three TDs.

Hopkins was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice due to a thumb injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins logged 76 of a possible 79 offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Raiders, finishing the day with a season-high 11 catches (on 13 targets) for 109 yards. At this point, there's nothing to suggest that his availability for the Week 9 game against the Jaguars is in any danger.

Hopkins caught 11 of 13 targets for 109 yards during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

In the absence of Will Fuller (hamstring), Hopkins was targeted on 28 percent of his team's passes while exceeding the 100-yard mark for the second straight game. He averaged an underwhelming 9.9 yards per reception, but his season-high 11 grabs helped him to another productive day through sheer volume. Hopkins has come alive of late, with at least nine catches or 88 receiving yards in four straight games. He'll look to continue his recent success next Sunday on the road against the Jaguars.

Hopkins caught nine of 12 targets for 106 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins looked like he had a second-quarter touchdown, but the play was called back because Deshaun Watson was in the grasp of a defender before he threw the ball. He indisputably scored from four yards out in the fourth quarter for his first touchdown since Week 1, and this was also the first time Hopkins topped the 100-yard mark since then. The buy-low window on the elite wide receiver may have closed with this effort, and he'll look to build on this performance against the Raiders in Week 8.

Hopkins (ribs) practiced fully Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The same applies to Will Fuller (calf, oblique), which sets the stage for the Texans' top two pass catchers to play Sunday against the Colts. Hopkins will thus continue to operate in a high-volume role in the Texans offense this weekend, on the heels of being targeted 12 times (for nine catches and 55 yards) in Week 6's 31-24 win over the Chiefs.

Hopkins (ribs) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins was on the field for 98 percent of the Texans' snaps on offense in this past Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chiefs, and with no injury setbacks reported since then, it's likely that his limitations Wednesday were maintenance-related. Six weeks in the 2019 season, Hopkins is tied for fifth in the league with 56 targets.

Hopkins caught nine of 12 targets for 55 yards during Sunday's 31-24 win over the Chiefs. He also caught a two-point conversion.

EDGE Analysis

Although Hopkins caught 75 percent of the balls thrown his way, he was limited to very short gains outside his long of 18 yards. He also was targeted on a deep ball that could have resulted in a touchdown, only to see Deshaun Watson misfire on the play. Hopkins continues to draw plenty of targets each week, but he's struggled to break through the coverages most teams are rolling his way and has now been held under 75 receiving yards in four of the last five games. He'll continue searching for his breakout performance next Sunday against the Colts.

Hopkins caught seven of eight targets for 88 receiving yards during Sunday's 53-32 win against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins has not recorded a touchdown catch or exceeded 70 receiving yards since Week 1, when he racked up 111 yards and two touchdowns against New Orleans. The two-time All-Pro wideout was held under 70 yards just four times in 16 regular-season appearances last year, and never went more than two consecutive games without recording a touchdown. Certainly the early returns on investment have not been there for Hopkins, but the uber-talented wideout has a chance of getting right Week 6 against a Chiefs defense that (heading into Sunday Night Football) has gone three consecutive games without allowing an opposing receiver to exceed 80 yards.

Hopkins caught five of eight targets for 41 yards and threw an interception on his lone pass attempt during Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Hopkins averaged a mere 8.2 yards per catch as he recorded a long gain of just 14 yards. He also attempted an ill-advised pass which resulted in an interception on a trick play in the red zone during the second quarter. After an electric season opener, Hopkins has struggled to the tune of 49.3 receiving yards per game with no touchdowns over the last three. He'll look to get back on track in a favorable home matchup with the Falcons next Sunday.
