Hopkins accounted for 30.8% of the receiving output for the Houston Texans, accumulating 1,165 yards for the previous season. His receptions per contest and yards per outing average were 6.9 and 77.7 yards. In the previous year, Hopkins ended up with 7 TDs and his longest catch of the season was 43 yards. He earned 1,165 yards last season and wrapped up the year with an average of 11.2 yards per catch. His percentage of passes caught for this past season was 69.3% and he got there by hauling in 104 out of the 150 passes that went his way. Hopkins stepped onto the gridiron in 15 contests for the previous season.
Someone who will be impacted by this move is Larry Fitzgerald. As a percentage of the Arizona Cardinals 3,477 total receiving yards last year, Fitzgerald was responsible for 23.1% of the receivers output. Fitzgerald (4 receiving TD’s) had an average of 50.3 yds per game receiving and he had 4.7 catches per contest. His longest reception last year went for 54 yds and he hauled in 68.8% of the balls thrown in his direction. He caught 75 passes (26th in the NFL) for an average of 10.7 yards per catch.
