Start-em: DeAndre Hopkins (HOU) vs. Cleveland
This start could have come from either of the Houston wide receivers for Week 6. Both DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller are both great plays this week against Cleveland to pair with quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Hopkins has had a great start to what Houston fans hope is a bounce-back year for their No. 1 receiver. Watson is loving throwing the ball to Hopkins this season. Hopkins has garnered over 12 targets in every game except for one this season.
There is no way that type of opportunity can go without production against the Browns. There are some big-name wide receivers with decent matchups this week, but Hopkins is by far the best.
Hopkins is also coming off of one of his best games of the season against a very tough Kansas City defense. He established himself as Watson’s favorite red-zone target by scoring three touchdowns in Week 5. On only four catches he was able to turn three of them into scores. Fantasy football teams love touchdowns, and Hopkins provides them.
There was really no reason to sit Hopkins with the new explosive Houston offense, but this week will be big. Expect big numbers from everyone on the Texans offense in fantasy football for Week 6.
