Rookie wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had a big game Sunday, hauling seven receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown. His score came in overtime, giving the Houston Texans a 30-24 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Hopkins' three-yard game-winning touchdown came two plays after he had a 25-yard reception to get Houston in position to win the game. He was targeted 13 times in the game, the same number as the team's No. 1 receiver Andre Johnson. Johnson was injured late in the fourth quarter and was being evaluated after the game for a possible concussion.
Fantasy impact: Hopkins has 183 receiving yards over two career games. If Johnson is out for any length of time, Hopkins (along with tight end Owen Daniels) will be the focal point of the team's passing offense for a while.
For example, the team's overtime period was played without their veteran star, and Hopkins got the pass looks. It'll be interesting to monitor going forward, but it's clear that the rookie wide receiver's value might well be on the rise.
