The Arizona Cardinals’ fifth fantasy football option: DeAndre Hopkins – Wide Receiver
The six-game suspension that DeAndre Hopkins was slapped with will make the wide receiver a less-attractive fantasy option.
However, excluding the five-time Pro Bowler from your fantasy team altogether could turn out to be a huge mistake.
Hopkins registered 42 receptions for 572 yards in the ten contests he appeared in last season. More impressively, the 29-year-old managed to find the end zone an outstanding eight times in his injury-shortened campaign.
It’s almost a given that the suspension for PEDs will cause Hopkins to fall a bit in fantasy drafts around the country.
The intelligent move would be to stash the 6-foot-1, 212 pounder on your roster and reap the rewards he will bring when Hopkins returns to the Cards in Week 7.
