Receiver: DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller
This position is a no-brainer. DeAndre Hopkins took over for Andre Johnson last season after the Texans moved on from the veteran. All Hopkins did after that was catch 111 passes for 1,521 yards and 11 touchdowns.
He inserted himself into the conversation when discussing the best wide outs in the NFL after his breakout season. The scary part for opponents is that he had his monster year with a revolving door at quarterback. With that position settled, look for Hopkins to further cement his status as one of the elites in the game today.
Will Fuller was the 21st pick overall out of Notre Dame and should he find himself any further down on the depth chart to start this season, it would be a bit of a letdown. The speedy Fuller is expected to take pressure off Hopkins while also delivering the occasional home run thanks to his insane athletic ability.
The veteran Cecil Shorts III will try and push Fuller, but he will most likely end up as the slot receiver for most of the season. Second year wide out Jaelen Strong could also make a push, but Houston would probably prefer to get Fuller out there to take advantage of the downfield element he brings.
