DeAndre Hopkins moves to No. 1 in NFL WR ranking

Sporting News moved former Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins to No. 1 in its ranking for the NFL's top wide receivers for 2019.
"Fantasy football players know this: Hopkins does not have bad games," SN's Vinnie Iyer said. "He has either spectacular games or very good games. He is a complete, smooth target and has become only more locked in with a quarterback, Deshaun Watson, who consistently knows where and when to find him open - which is everywhere and most of the time. A lot more Nuk, please."
Hopkins was named the NFL offensive player of the year by Pro Football Focus after not recording a drop in 115 catchable targets last season. He totaled 1,572 receiving yards with 11 touchdowns.
SN had new Oakland Raider receiver Antonio Brown No. 1 last year, who slipped to No. 5 for 2019. Atlanta's Julio Jones, New Orleans' Michael Thomas and Cleveland's Odell Beckham Jr. complete the new top-5.
The Daniel High School product is only three touchdowns short of 50 with 528 career catches for 7,437 yards going into his seventh pro season.
