DeAndre Hopkins is Too Low in Yahoo Round 5 ADP, Despite Path To Sky-High Target Share

As of August 28th, DeAndre Hopkins is being drafted as the 57th player in Yahoo Round 5 ADP. He is being drafted as the twenty-sixth player at the wide receiver position in current fantasy football drafts, behind Diontae Johnson, Brandon Aiyuk, and D.J. Moore.

2Drake LondonAtlanta Falcons
3Terry McLaurinWashington Commanders
4James CookBuffalo Bills
5Diontae JohnsonPittsburgh Steelers
6Brandon AiyukSan Francisco
7D.J. MooreChicago Bears
8Justin FieldsChicago Bears
9DeAndre HopkinsTennessee Titans
10George KittleSan Francisco 49ers
11David MontgomeryDetroit Lions
12Joe BurrowCincinnati Bengals

According to current 4for4 rankings, these players are going too high in Yahoo Round 5 ADP:

D.J. Moore Fantasy Football Outlook – Moore finally cracked the four-touchdown mark in 2022, but he only gained 888 yards receiving after three straight 1,157+ yard seasons. In theory, Justin Fields represents an upgrade from the quarterbacks that have been throwing to Moore in recent years, though the Bears didn’t seem fully comfortable to let Fields throw the ball in 2022. It’s going to be tough for Moore to return value at his WR20 ADP if Fields is only throwing for 150-200 yards per game. If the Bears look primed to throw the ball significantly more in the preseason/training camp, then Moore will move up the rankings.

Brandon Aiyuk Fantasy Football Outlook – There’s a lot to like about Aiyuk’s third season. He posted a career-high 1,015 yards and eight touchdowns on a career-high 114 targets. He fared very well in Matt Harmon’s Reception Perception charting and in 538/ESPN’s advanced metrics. He’s definitely a player on the rise, but the 49ers’ competition for targets is fierce, with both Deebo Samuel and George Kittle demanding a sizable role.

Once Brock Purdy took over, Aiyuk’s numbers were decent (3.2-52-0.20 on 5.2 targets per game) in five games with Samuel active, but he saw a big bump (to 5.3-67-0.33 on 7.7 targets per game) in the three games that Samuel missed. Aiyuk has drawn rave reviews in OTAs–Kyle Juszczyk was shocked by how much more “efficient and explosive” the fourth-year receiver looked in the spring. Talent-wise, he has top-ten upside, but the 49ers’ passing volume and target competition are likely to hold him back.

According to current 4for4 rankings, these players are going too low in Yahoo Round 5 ADP:

DeAndre Hopkins Fantasy Football Outlook – Opportunity-wise, Hopkins landed in a good spot. The Titans’ receiver room was pretty thin, but with Hopkins and Treylon Burks, along with the buzz surrounding Kyle Phillips and Chig Okonkwo, Tennessee has some weapons. When we last saw him, Hopkins was averaging nearly 80 yards on 10.7 targets per game. He was the fantasy WR9 from Week 7 to Week 16 when he was healthy enough to play, so I’m not really buying the anonymous reports that he “can’t separate” anymore.

Entering his age-31 season, there are concerns that he’ll be the next Julio Jones, who caught a mere 31 passes for 434 yards and a touchdown in 10 games with the Titans. But Hopkins is a year younger than Jones was when he joined the Titans, and Jones was brought in to be the clear No. 2 option behind A.J. Brown. That’s not the case with Hopkins since Burks has not established himself as the alpha in the Tennessee passing attack. Hopkins seems likely to post WR2 numbers as long as he’s healthy enough to play.

DeAndre Hopkins

Why you should draft DeAndre Hopkins ahead of ADP in Yahoo 2023 Fantasy Football Leagues

Though DeAndre Hopkins landed in a tough spot for a wide receiver due to a relative lack of passing volume, he also enters back into an offense where he is the obvious target hog. This would have been the case regardless, but now it seems as if Treylon Burks will miss a little bit of the season’s beginning with a knee injury suffered during the preseason. 

Many pundits believe that the talent of the Tennessee Titans could see them scraping the bottom of the rankings for much of the season, but we’ve seen time and again that this team can out-produce those low expectations. 4for4 currently has DeAndre Hopkins projected for a solid 65-981-5.2 stat line, which makes him a great WR2 option.
