DeAndre Hopkins doesn’t practice Tuesday

Fantasy Football, NFL News

O’Brien: “We’ve got him on a little bit of a pitch count”

DeAndre Hopkins did not practice again on Tuesday. He has not practiced since last Monday, though he did play in the Texans’ preseason opener on Wednesday. On Monday, Bill O’Brien said Hopkins is “doing fine.” “We’ve got him on a little bit of a pitch count, so to speak,” O’Brien said. (ESPN.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: Typically, teams use a “pitch count” to protect a player coming back from an injury or trying to prevent an injury from getting worse. That being said, HC Bill O’Brien doesn’t appear to be too concerned with the situation so DeAndre Hopkins remains a top 20 fantasy receiver entering the year.

Broncos in dire need of quarterback

I’m told QB Brock Osweiler has agreed to a deal in principle with the Houston Texans. (Rand Getlin on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The moves seems like a win for wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins as Osweiler has shown the ability to throw the deep ball however it remains to be seen just how good of quarterback Osweiler can be. He’s played in 19 games in four years with mixed results but does have one of the best young weapons in the game at his disposal. Another outside or tight end weapon to go along with a stud running back (Lamar Miller?) would help setup Osweiler for success.
