|A year after taking over as the teamís top option in the passing attack, DeAndre Hopkins solidified his place amongst the NFLís elite wide receivers in 2015. Unfortunately, the results may not have been completely by design as the Texans didnít head into last year thinking they would rank amongst the NFLís top ten teams in passing attempts (T-9th with 609). Looking ahead to 2016, there doesnít seem to be enough supporting evidence to provide Hopkins with another 192 targets. That isnít to say he wonít hit the 150-mark as an elite WR1 option, but Houston is no longer a one-trick pony with the additions of rookie Will Fuller in the passing game and Lamar Miller in the running game. Brock Osweiler had a front row seat in Denver watching an offense methodically spread the ball around to move the chains and the blueprint laid out in Houston looks awfully familiar. Make no mistake, Hopkins has no competition as the top option in the passing game, comes without durability concerns and is as acrobatic of a pass-catcher as there is in the NFL. He is certainly capable of sustaining the success he had a year ago, but his team may not allow him to reach such lofty marks. A one-day holdout shouldnít factor into your 2016 ranking for the former Clemson Tiger where his first round value isnít likely to change much prior to opening kickoff.
| Will Fuller back practicing for Texans|
Left last week with knee and hamstring injuries

|Texans rookie wide receiver Will Fuller returned to practice Wednesday, an encouraging sign about his status for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The first-round draft pick from Notre Dame left the Texans' game against the Detroit Lions and didn't return. He has dealt with knee and hamstring injuries.
FFToday's Take: Will Fuller has seen his fantasy stock plummet in recent weeks and is now coming off lower body injuries that may impact his deep play potential. If healthy he'll start opposite DeAndre Hopkins but he's a very risky flex option for Week 10. If Fuller isn't up to full speed by the end of the week, Braxton Miller would see a nice boost in fantasy value this week. Miller has moved into third on the depth chart with Jaelen Strong sidelined with an ankle injury.

FFToday's Take: Fuller was limited in practice this week but it appears will miss tonight's game with Colts. DeAndre Hopkins, Jaelen Strong and Braxton Miller should be the top three wideouts for Brock Osweiler.
