  • DeAndre Hopkins To Browns Is A Strong Possibility

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    A potential reunion between Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson and free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals last week, is now regarded as a strong possibility, according to league sources. Meanwhile, a return to the Houston Texans, the team Hopkins began his career with, is not expected. In addition to the Browns, the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills were tied to Hopkins when he was still with the Cardinals, but it remains to be seen if the money will be right for them to sign the Pro Bowl wideout. Although the 30-year-old is no longer at his peak, he'd still easily be a top-25 fantasy receiver if he were to join the Browns, and Watson would also become more attractive as a low-end QB1 target.

  • Deshaun Watson Could Be Pining For DeAndre Hopkins

    Headshot for Deshaun Watson

    It's unknown whether the Cleveland Browns will make an attempt to sign free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and reunite him with quarterback Deshaun Watson, but Watson has shopped the Browns to Hopkins as a potential landing spot. Watson said, "of course we would love to have him," but that those decisions are made "out of my range." The addition of Hopkins in Cleveland would definitely make Watson a more intriguing low-end QB1 in fantasy, but it would also be bad news for wideouts Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Elijah Moore. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported on Thursday that Hopkins is open-minded about teams league-wide, and he's prepared to be patient. Minicamp could be considered a soft deadline for the 30-year-old to pick a new team, while training camp would be more of a hard deadline.

    The NFL’s marquee free agent of the moment, DeAndre Hopkins has consistently mentioned the Bills and Chiefs as appealing destinations. But the free agent wide receiver may not be prepared to take a steep discount to play with Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen. Hopkins is seeking a contract in the neighborhood of the deal Odell […]

  • DeAndre Hopkins Interested In Reunion With Texans

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    Free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals at the end of last week, said he'd be interested in a reunion with the Houston Texans, the team he began his career with after they took him in the first round in 2013. It's been widely believed that Hopkins is looking to play for a contender -- the Bills and Chiefs are the two teams most mentioned -- so a return to the rebuilding Texans would be a pretty big surprise. The 30-year-old made four Pro Bowls in Houston, and he'd undoubtedly become their top pass-catching target with rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud eventually expected to start in 2023. While Nuk is no longer at his peak physically, he still produced when on the field last year and should be in the mix as at least a WR2 in fantasy this year.

  • Giants Looking Into Potential DeAndre Hopkins Acquisition

    The list of expected suitors for DeAndre Hopkins is fairly well-known at this point, but other teams will no doubt at least kick the tires on the idea of signing the All-Pro wideout. The Giants are a member of that group. Hopkins has officially been released by the Cardinals, leaving him free to sign anywhere on the […]

  • DeAndre Hopkins May Have To Take Pay Cut To Play For Contender

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    The Arizona Cardinals released wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins last week because they didn't want to pay him $19.45 million in 2023, and they couldn't trade him because no other teams wanted to pay him that either.'s Albert Breer's guess is that his current free-agent market bears perhaps around half of what he would've made in 2023. The Chiefs and Bills were the only two teams to engage Arizona in trade talks for Hopkins, but there just wasn't interest in paying Hopkins and giving up a draft pick. At this point, the only way the 11-year receiver will play for a contender like the Chiefs or the Bills is if his price comes down. Breer thinks it will come down to either Hopkins finding a team to pay up, or choosing to take less for a chance to win a ring. He's currently considered a top-25 fantasy wideout, but where he lands in free agency will give us a clearer picture of his true fantasy value.

  • Ravens To Consider Adding DeAndre Hopkins?

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    It remains to be seen if the Baltimore Ravens will consider signing free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, but The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec thinks it's a "no-brainer, contract demands and team chemistry questions be damned." Hopkins would no doubt help Baltimore in their quest to develop a more dynamic passing game under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, but will they be able to afford him? He'll turn 31 next week, but he's a five-time All-Pro and still has some of the best hands in the game. The Ravens did their due diligence on Hopkins earlier this offseason, but it doesn't appear that the team was ever really close to a deal with the Cardinals. Baltimore can get Hopkins cheaper now, but they've also invested a lot of offseason capital on adding receivers Nelson Agholor and Odell Beckham Jr.

    Few players who have remained unsigned as of Memorial Day in recent years match DeAndre Hopkins‘ profile, making the former All-Pro wide receiver’s eventual landing spot a frequent discussion topic during OTA season. A few teams have been connected to the 11th-year veteran since his Cardinals release. Most closely tied to the Bills and Chiefs, […]

  • Browns Unlikely To Pursue DeAndre Hopkins

    The Cleveland Browns aren't expected to reunite quarterback Deshaun Watson with free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins after the two spent three years together with the Houston Texans at the start of Watson's career. In those three years, the two combined for 264 completions for 3,343 yards and 25 touchdowns. The Browns already traded for Elijah Moore, signed Marquise Goodwin in free agency and took Cedric Tillman in the third round of the draft this offseason. Hopkins is a free agent now after being released by the Arizona Cardinals, and there will surely be plenty of suitors, but his cost will be an issue. The 30-year-old former All-Pro is no longer at the peak of his career, but he can still do plenty of damage in fantasy if he lands in the right situation.

  • Bills, Chiefs Had "Substantive Talks" About Trading for DeAndre Hopkins

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, only the Bills and Cardinals had "substantive" talks with the Cardinals about trading for DeAndre Hopkins. Of course, nobody made a move, and Arizona released him on Friday. Since the multi-time Pro Bowler became a free agent, several teams have emerged as potential suitors. However, other clubs like the Browns appear uninterested, meaning a reunion between Hopkins and Deshaun Watson probably won't happen. The Chiefs have since expressed their faith in Kadarius Toney to become the top wideout on the depth chart, while the Bills may not have the cash to make a move, considering Hopkins could command more than the $15 million Odell Beckham Jr. received from Baltimore. Nonetheless, there will be plenty of updates and speculation moving forward. But it will be hard to tell how Hopkins will look from a fantasy standpoint until he officially inks a new deal

  • Bills "Lurking" As A Favorite To Land Deandre Hopkins

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Bills are considered one of the favorites to land free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Fowler reports Buffalo has "been lurking," although the organization would need to get "creative," considering its limited cap space. Hopkins is coming off a down season, finishing the 2022-23 campaign with 64 catches for 717 yards and three touchdowns. However, after the Cardinals failed to find a trade for the multi-time Pro Bowler, he was released on Friday. Nonetheless, there will be numerous updates on the veteran's potential plans, with Fowler also mentioning the Chiefs, Jets, Cowboys, and Saints as other teams in the running to acquire his services. As a result, Hopkins' fantasy outlook will remain a mystery until he signs with a new club. Of course, if he lands in Buffalo, it would certainly improve Josh Allen's fantasy stock.

  • Chiefs A Potential Landing Spot For DeAndre Hopkins?

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    The Kansas City Chiefs received permission to talk with free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins earlier in the offseason and also spoke to him before the NFL draft, according to sources. His contract was the hurdle, though, and to get something done now after the Arizona Cardinals released him on Friday, his price would have to come way down. But it's clear the Chiefs like him, but the deal they gave left tackle Donovan Smith this offseason will make it tough. KC added rookie Rashee Rice in the draft, but if they can find a way to move some money around in order to add Hopkins, he'd likely step in right away as the team's No. 1 receiver, aside from All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce. Landing with the high-octane Chiefs offense would be an ideal landing spot for the 30-year-old pass-catcher's 2023 fantasy value.

  • Cardinals Release DeAndre Hopkins

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    The Arizona Cardinals announced on Friday that they have released wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. The five-time Pro Bowler will now be free to sign with any team this offseason. The 30-year-old may be past his prime at this point, but he can still be productive in the right situation, and he will easily become the most coveted free agent on the open market. Hopkins played in only nine games in 2022 due to injuries and a suspension, and he finished with 64 receptions for 717 yards and three touchdowns. Nuk's fantasy value will be more clear when he has a new home, but all in all, this is probably good news for him with quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) potentially missing half of the 2023 season. In Arizona, Marquise Brown will now be the unquestioned No. 1 receiver this year.

  • DeAndre Hopkins Remains Away From Team

    Headshot for DeAndre Hopkins

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins remains away from the team for the start of organized team activities on Monday. Hopkins continues to work out on his own and remains in contact with teammates. "Phoenix is home," Hopkins said. "It's where I have been the last three years. Working out there, there's no emphasis other than that's where I live. It's not me going on a campaign. It's just me working out." The 30-year-old veteran has been the subject of plenty of trade rumors this offseason, but his contract has dissuaded interested teams from pursuing him aggressively. With quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) potentially not ready until around midseason in 2023, a trade out of Arizona would probably be the best thing for his current declining fantasy value.

  • DeAndre Hopkins' Contract Keeping Him In Arizona

    According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins "seems intent on making the $19.45 million he's due." While there's no doubt the multi-time Pro Bowler has plenty of talent, teams around the National Football League aren't looking to take on such a contract. Of course, that could change sometime down the line, especially if a team becomes desperate. But for now, Hopkins will remain a Cardinal. However, his fantasy outlook isn't as bright as in previous years, primarily because Kyler Murray (knee) likely won't be ready to go by Week 1 after tearing his ACL in 2022.
