REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Based on our latest projection, you can expect DeAndre Hopkins to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 107 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Tyler Lockett and ahead of Tyreek Hill. He has averaged 10.98 fantasy points in his past 38 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 11.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #3 ranked wide receiver. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite wide receiver. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. DeAndre Hopkins is expected to slightly improve on this season-to-date's #5 fantasy position rank.
DEANDRE HOPKINS WEEK 9 AND 10 FANTASY OUTLOOK
