With all the talk about Odell Beckahm Jr., Antonio Brown and Julio Jones, DeAndre Hopkins is easily one of, if not the most underrated wide receiver in the NFL.
If you needed any proof, look no firther than this statistic.
The Texans wideout finishes the 2018 regular season is 115 catches for 1,425 yards with 11 touchdowns. That’s not the impressive part. Hopkins finished the year with zero, yes not a single dropped pass.
The only other WR to finish the season with zero drops was Dez Bryant.
Hopkins passed Texans legend Andre Johnson for the most receiving yards and receptions in a single season The record breaking did not stop there. His week 17 performance helped him surpass Steelers WR Antonio Browns for the most receiving yards through a receivers first five seasons in NFL history.
Hopkins will lead a red hot Texans team that has won 11 of its last 13 games into the playoffs despite a 0-3 start to the season that left Houston wth a 2.8% chance at making the playoffs.
Houston will take on the Indianapolis Colts at home on Saturday Jan. 5, where Hopkins will look to continue his streak of catching every ball that hits him in the hands.
