The Texans need help across from Andre Johnson and they may have found it in DeAndre Hopkins. The rookie WR has been impressive thus far and has caught the eye of HC Gary Kubiak.
“He’s special,” Kubiak said. “Ball skills are extremely special. Very long — long arms. Big hands — you saw the catch he made out here today. He’s going to help us early, and we know that. That’s why we brought him here. Right now, it’s really a matter of settling him down mentally and learning what he’s doing so all the skill keeps taking over where it’s not a bog-down process. It’s going to be a big six weeks for him.”
The way the Texans run the ball and play defense doesn’t get them in many shootouts, which in turn limits the amount of fantasy points in the passing game. If they are to contend with the Broncos and Pats and their high powered offenses, they are going to have to air it out. Now, they may have a guy that will allow them more flexibility in the pass attack in 2013. Still a long way to go though.
