Pro Football Focus shares insane statistic for Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins
Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins put together an impressive regular season, and Pro Football Focus has the proof to back up that claim.
The Texans are preparing for an AFC Wild Card showdown against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday, and one of the biggest reasons for the success this season is due to Hopkins’ tremendous playmaking ability.
He racked up 115 receptions for 1,572 yards and 11 touchdowns during the regular season, and naturally, he was Deshaun Watson’s go-to-guy with 163 total targets.
And the number of catchable targets that he had without a single drop helped earn a ridiculous feat, according to Pro Football Focus.

Hopkins has become one of the most reliable playmakers at any position in the NFL, and this stat shows just how consistent he was throughout the season.
Now, with another matchup with the Colts, he’ll try to keep that string of stellar play going in order to give Houston a legitimate shot at a deep run in the postseason.
Obviously, these two teams are very familiar with each other at this point having split the season series, so there likely won’t be a whole of unknowns when it comes to how each team approaches this particular matchup.
It’s clear that limiting Hopkins’ production will be a top priority for the Colts, but that is much easier said than done.
If the duo of Watson and Hopkins can deliver their usual efforts on offense, that should put the Texans in a great spot to be able to advance to the next round.
