3. DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller each have 1,000-yard seasons
Since playing their first season the NFL in 2002, the Houston Texans have never had two wide receivers each catch for 1,000 yards in a single season. That will change in 2019 as the duo of DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller will each have at least 1,000 yards receiving.
Last season, Fuller played in seven games and totaled 32 receptions for 503 yards, so he was well on his way to the glory of being a 1,000-yard receiver before he tore his ACL. Fuller was averaging 15.7 yards per receptions in 2018, his career-high before the injury, and was showcasing his skills as an excellent No. 2 wide receiver to Hopkins.
Hopkins did what he always does, and then some, because he had a career-high 115 receptions for 1,572 yards, with an average yards per reception of 13.7 for the season. Both of these receivers of Hopkins and Fuller have the ability to become the first duo of Texans wide receivers to achieve that feat in franchise history.
The closest the Texans ever came to having two wide receivers each have 1,000 yards in a single season was in 2014 when Hopkins totaled 1,521 yards on 111 receptions and Andre Johnson collected 85 receptions for 936 yards. The same two receivers in 2013 were also close to the double-1,000 season when Johnson had 109 receptions for 1,407 yards and Hopkins had 52 receptions for 802 yards.
Again, if both Fuller and Hopkins play a full season in 2019, they will each have 1,000 yards receiving and be a big part of the Texans defense of the AFC South.
