DeAndre Hopkins takes AFC offensive player of week honors

AP

The Texans took a risk when they let the franchise’s all-time leading receiver go this offseason.

But DeAndre Hopkins is making it look like a justifiable decision.

Hopkins was named AFC offensive player of the week, after the latest in a string of big games for the third-year wideout.

Hopkins had 10 catches for 148 yards and two touchdowns against the Jaguars, and has 52 catches for 726 yards and five touchdowns already this season. In fact, since than being limited against the Panthers, he has four straight 100-yard games.

It’s worth mentioning that he’s doing this with Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett, and that kind of revolving door of mediocrity is something Andre Johnson can definitely sympathize with.

  1. Now we need the rest of the team to show up against teams better than the jags because he seems to be the only consistent offensive player…. Defense has been lacking too, besides against the jags.

  2. Congratulations to deandre hopkins for totaling 148 yards -2 tds in the victory against the 1-4 Jacksonville Jaguars and their 22nd ranked PASS Defense in the NFL.

  3. Keep calling Brian Hoyer mediocre and ignore his last 11 quarters of football. I have bought in. His previous chance came with Cleveland…. enough said.
    I could give you a long list of starting qb’s in this league who are playing worse all year with more talent around them.

  5. How did Philip Rivers not win this? Over 500 yards behind a makeshift offensive line and then losing his best receiver during the game. Hopkins had a great game, but Rivers deserved the award.

    Your post makes perfect sense. These pass defenses are bad because good receivers like Hopkins have smoked them for huge gains! Thanks for doing all the homework. :o)

    Philip Rivers was without question the most deserving of this award this week, but they just gave it to him two weeks ago and so the NFL feels it has to spread the love around. Which goes to show how bogus these awards, like Pro Bowl selections, truly are.

  8. As with JJ, he’s wasting a career with an organization that seems to be more shell shocked over David Carr than Dave himself. GET A DAMN QB HOUSTON!!!
