29. DeAndre Hopkins explosion during first half of 2015
DeAndre Hopkins has spent the first half of the 2015 season introducing himself to the world. Well, at least to those outside of the Houston area as anyone who paid attention before 2015 saw a young man steadily improving in each of his first two seasons in the league.
His rookie season of 2013 saw the young man from Clemson grab 52 passes for 802 yards and a couple of touchdowns. In his sophomore year he improved to 76 receptions for 1,210 yards and six scores.
While all who followed him knew he would be great as the lead dog, no one saw 66 receptions for 870 yards and six touchdowns in the first eight games coming. DeAndre has simply been playing at a different level and despite the struggles on offense this season, he has given them a reason to believe that they can make moves on offense at any given time.
What’s weird is despite his huge breakout, it still feels like the receiver could be an even bigger threat if there would have been more stability at the quarterback position this season.
