Sept. 22 update PM — Hopkins did not practice on Friday and was officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Browns.

Sept. 22 update — Hopkins was not spotted at practice on Friday. He was also not seen at practice by the media on Thursday, but was later listed as a limited participant. His status is definitely something to monitor heading into the weekend.

The Tennessee Titans will face the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 of the NFL season. The Titans find themselves 1-1 and coming off a big win over the Los Angeles Chargers in overtime. After being a full practice participant on Wednesday, veteran wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was not spotted at Thursday’s practice. It could just be a rest day, but the injury report will tell us more later on Thursday.

Fantasy football implications for Week 3

Hopkins is still adjusting to his new team. He is playing alongside another talented wideout in Treylon Burks, but he is catching the eye of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Through two games, Hopkins leads the team in receptions (11), targets (18) and receiving yards (105), but is still searching for that first touchdown in a Titans uniform.

If he is active, Hopkins is a solid play in fantasy football against the Browns secondary this week. Despite Tennessee being run-heavy with Derrick Henry, Hopkins is getting a consistent target share. If he is inactive, this would elevate Burks, but that would be the only other Titans pass-catcher to get a boost.
