Realistic projections?

Hard work, dedication, team-oriented play.

That is all I want.

Things I heard talk about this:

1. He already was getting a lot of touches, so an attempt to limit.

2. He did some uncustomary drops at bad times.

3. Some of the targets that would have otherwise gone to Foster went to James Casey instead. That likely won't happen this year.

4. Think teams are very much keying on Foster because Foster. Makes it harder to slip out, surprise anyone.

Ding ding ding.

I think that may also be one of the reasons why when given the choice of any WR on the planet other than Austin, they went to Hopkins.

Real receiver hands. Don't matter what flash you got if you can't catch the blasted football.

Daniel Jeremiah thinks he will catch at least 60 passes this season:

3) DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston Texans: For the past 10 seasons, Andre Johnson has been as productive as just about any wide receiver in the NFL. He's caught more than 800 balls and eclipsed 11,000 receiving yards. That's quite impressive, considering he's never had a legitimate No. 2 wideout to keep opposing defenses honest. Enter Hopkins. The former Clemson receiver broke the ACC's single-season record for receiving touchdowns with 18 last fall and his combination of short-area quickness and ball skills will be a welcome addition to the Texans' passing attack. He should start right away and post 60-plus catches during his rookie campaign.

I seriously need to temper my expectations with Hopkins. If someone predicted 70 receptions and 1,000+yds, I would not argue with them.

*disclaimer* I said I wouldn't argue with the prediction, but that is NOT my prediction.
My numbers from an earlier post in this thread:
44 receptions
587 yards
13.33 Avg
4 TDs

(seems a little conservative, in retrospect...)
