I think it would help the team more if Hop ended up with something more like 500 yards with 30 catches. 16+ ypc. That's explosive, that's a playmaker, that's someone you've got to account for, someone who commands attention away from Aj
12 ypc is a pretty good TE keeping your LBs busy.
My point was mainly about targets. Hopkins is replacing Walter as the Texans #2 WR. Why can't Hopkins get the same amount (40) of targets Walter got? If he gets the same amount of yards or more, it's hard to imagine that production won't have the biggest impact among the rookies.
