5 things Houston Texans should be thankful for in 2018
2. DeAndre Hopkins
Is there such a thing as being too thankful for having a player on their roster? If that is such a thing, then the Houston Texans need to be that thankful for DeAndre Hopkins this season and pretty much any season he has been with the franchise.
Hopkins makes everything look so easy, but don’t be fooled: what he does on the football field is nothing short of spectacular. This season, Hopkins has 68 receptions for 650 yards and eight touchdowns. Hopkins is fifth in the NFL in touchdowns and sixth in the league in receiving yards, but not only that, he makes every player around him more valuable because he’s going to get the top focus from the defense because he is so talented.
The Texans top wide receiver does so much for his teammates, such as quarterback Deshaun Watson and fellow wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Keke Coutee, that it will be only a matter of time more focus will have to go toward those two. Hopkins can take advantage of that, too.
As the Texans should be thinking about what they are thankful for this time of the year, Hopkins and his talent should be one of the top things listed.
