Who will be the Houston Texans offensive MVP in 2016?
DeAndre Hopkins, WR
After moving on from franchise leading receiver Andre Johnson before the 2015 season, the Texans made it clear that they believed DeAndre Hopkins was good enough to be the guy at the position. It didn’t take long to prove how right they were.
Weight: 218 Pounds
Receiving yards: 3,533
Receiving TDs: 19
Hopkins was one of the most consistent receivers in all of the NFL and made more than his fair share of highlight plays. He also was quick to talk trash, evidenced by his encounter with Washington Redskins corner DeAngelo Hall during a shared practice in training camp.
After making a move on Hall, the veteran corner fell to the ground and needed medical attention. Hopkins response was to look at the vet and say “already breaking ankles.”
Hopkins became the first Texans player to ever record double-digit touchdown catches in one season, even though he had to do so with guys signed off the street at times lining up under center.
With a better supporting cast in 2016, look for Hopkins to actually improve upon a stellar season he had the year before. There may be a lot more talent around him, but Hopkins will still reign as the Texans offensive MVP.
