DeAndre Hopkins’ fantasy football owners, despite a promising Week 1 performance, have been disappointed throughout the first month of the season. Currently ranked 47th in PPR scoring among wide receivers, Hopkins’ recent trends and historical data suggest caution this week, even if the Week 5 matchup does look enticing.

DeAndre Hopkins’ Fantasy Football Outlook For Week 5

The Indianapolis Colts have allowed the eighth-most points to wide receivers this season, creating an opportunity for Hopkins to have a breakout game. In three games this season, the Colts have conceded a 100-yard receiving game to opposing wide receivers who were targeted nine times or more, with all of those wide receivers also catching a touchdown. However, despite the matchup, Hopkins has to get out of this recent slump that he is in currently.

Over his last three games, Hopkins has not been targeted more than seven times. The Colts have actually limited wide receivers when they are targeted seven times or less, with only one wide receiver scoring a touchdown or accumulating more than 55 receiving yards this season. This yardage trend extends to the Titans wide receiver corps, as in three of the last four meetings with the Colts, only once has a Titans wide receiver surpassed 55 receiving yards.

DeAndre Hopkins’ fantasy football performance has seen a decline since his 13.5-point performance in Week 1. He has failed to score more than 11 points in PPR leagues since that time and has not finished higher than WR38 over the past three weeks. Most notably, he has not reached the 100-yard receiving mark in 11 consecutive games. To make matters worse, he has not exceeded 66 receiving yards in his last six games.

While the matchup looks favorable on paper, the combination of historical data and recent trends does raise a couple of concerns, so you may want to temper your expectations on DeAndre Hopkins this week.
