This is also getting a little weird for DeAndre Hopkins to be ranked 71st in the top 100 players of 2021. Just because Hopkins did miss time because of his injury doesn’t mean that Diontae Johnson had a better season than him.
Hopkins is still a top 5 wide receiver in this league, and despite what some people have been trying to say about him, he is definitely not overrated. Unfortunately, he is severely underrated in this instance, but I can see why he got the rating that he did.
Add on top that he has a six-game suspension this year; that’s probably another factor of where Hopkins fell for Prisco.
Some other wide receivers that are ahead of Hopkins are Seattle Seahawks’ D.K. Metcalf, the Los Angeles Chargers Keenan Allen, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Chris Godwin.
Hopkins will need a big season to improve this ranking this time next year.
