- We, T4G, created all of the information below in a Real-Life Roster via Online Mode. Some of the tips below, such as how to trade for DeAndre Hopkins, will be mainly for the regular season week one. Some information can be used in a fantasy draft, however, the trade and contract will be different (safer to assume). For users who are in Offline Mode, most information will be relevant, however, the trade may be slightly different.
Player Name/Position/Size: DeAndre Hopkins, WR, 6’1″, 215 lbs
Development/X-Factor Ability: X-Factor (Double Me), “When they enter the zone, this ability increases their success rate on aggressive catches against single coverage”. (Good) Make 20+ yard catches. (Bad) Consecutive passes not targeted.
X-Factor Activation Tips: You need to get 20+ Yards 2/2 times. The best way to do this is to put him in a slot situation to get him one on one with a linebacker/safety or lower overall CB. However, the defense’s best CB may follow him wherever he goes, though. Hopkins is a catching beast so it will be easier than you think it is to accomplish due to him making it easier. Make sure his route goes 20 yards, as he needs to catch from 20 yards not run for 20 yards. Use a gun formation to give your QB time in the pocket in case of a blitz. Hopkins catches so well it is like you can’t tell when he is on it or off of it, so don’t force it and turn it over.
Overall(s): Preseason Roster: 99/ Updated Roster: 99.
DeAndre Hopkins’ Archetype: Physical.
DeAndre Hopkins’ Scheme Fit(s): He can fit many different schemes due to his high overall alone. Based on his Archetype, he would fit in a Multiple Zone Run, Multiple Power Run, and Pistol. As a HB, he is a 99 Receiving Back and an 87 Elusive Back. As a TE, he is a 99 Vertical Threat and a 91 Possession. Once again, he can work well in many other schemes, so use him in the areas you need help in.
DeAndre Hopkins Position Switches: If you are in a bind you could move him to a few positions and still be very successful. He is a ‘do it all’ kind of player. Hopkins is a 99 overall HB when switched over. He will fumble sometimes at a 75 carrying, great BCV for simulation, 86 break Tackle, great Juke Move (91). Another position he would dominate – and maybe even in a bigger way than any other position – is TE. He is a 99 overall TE when switched over. Most of the defenders that would be covering him would be linebackers or safeties. Very few linebackers would be able to man cover him for long. He would be small for a TE, however, you would never use him to block. At 6’1″ 215 pounds, he is just big enough to be a receiving TE.
Trait Grade: A. No predictability trait, meaning he is not predictable in contract negotiations. Thankfully though, he is already locked into a contract.
Average Overall after 3 years with standard XP settings: 99 overall.
Average Regression Age: 31/32.
Average Retire Age: 34-35.
DeAndre Hopkins’ Jersey Sales Grade: A+
DeAndre Hopkins Trade Guide
Realistic Trade Value (User to ser): There is no CSP because DeAndre Hopkins’ contract is fair between both parties. Due to his age and overall, we would have to say two 1st round picks and a fairly good young player with a strong development.
How to Trade for DeAndre Hopkins: Trade away an 80-85 overall high (green) interest LT, a 70-75 overall high-interest DT, and a 1st round same year pick. NOTE: If you cannot pull off any of your same year 1st round picks, then grab the Dolphins’ 1st round pick 1st overall. Also, if you do not have a good enough LT, just move a lineman you have on your team (who is an 80+ overall) over to LT or trade for a Guard and move him over to LT.
DeAndre Hopkins’ Trade Away Value: A+. What you can do with DeAndre Hopkins in the trade game is pandora like. He can get you any WR by using him in our SAT method. He can even get you Marquise Brown on the Ravens. You can also always trade him for a 1st and a 3rd of next year’s draft picks. We would not recommend trading him away until he regresses or after his first regression.
DeAndre Hopkins Contract Guide
Contract Grade: A+.
Contract: Len – 6yrs, Rem – 4yrs, Total – $88.9m, Savings – $12.5m, Penalty $4.5m.
Contract Tips: We would not recommend changing or touching anything on his contract. Hopkins is locked into a great deal with almost no guaranteed money allowing you to trade him away at any time. It is very rare to have a player of this caliber at WR sign a contract with almost no guarantees that just about brings him into retirement.
DeAndre Hopkins Upgrade Guide: Just keep him a high-overall by upgrading them all, he is already very balanced.
Player Gameplay Tips: The sky is the limit with Hopkins. He is better in Short and Medium routes over burning someone deep with 92 speed. What saves him in a deep ball situation is his 99 jumping and his 99 cathing ratings across the board. If playing a User, you should move him all over the field with quick substitution, rely on his high Stamina and Injury.
Player Rebuild Grade: A+. Hopkins is about as valuable as you can get in a franchise. Great for teams with OK QBs to great QBs. He can be moved to 3 different positions giving you a 99 overall in any of those positions. Signed to a great deal with not a lot in guarantees. He also can get you any WR in the trade game using the SAR and SAT, his catching is elite, along with how long he lasts on average at such steady overall.
