    Players to drop in fantasy football entering Week 5



    DUKE JOHNSON/CARLOS HYDE, RB, HOUSTON TEXANS

    (Both 67% rostered)

    Hyde is getting the carries between these two, but he’s not doing a lot with them and has basically no receiving value. And Johnson isn’t contributing enough as a receiver either, averaging just 3.3 targets and 2.0 receptions a game. They’ve combined for one touchdown across all four weeks and barely 16.0 PPR points a game. Feel free to move on.

    Speaking of Hyde and no receiving value. The game plan offense kept sending him out wide and he would run 5 yards and just stop. He rarely ran a pattern or threatened the defense. At times, the DB covering him, gave him such a huge cushion it made Joseph's cushion look like tight coverage.

    Lol good point. O'Brien doesn't realize Hyde doesn't have good receiving skills. They basically didn't have to cover him

    That would be good news. Only time coaches around here get fired is when players quit on them

    So that confused inaccurate QB caused Hop to drop 3-4 passes in week 1.


    You see here we go with the bashing mill.

    Hopkins has only been charged with, at most, two drops from every site/registry that I've visited.

    If you have another source claiming otherwise I'd be interested to see.

    No bashing

    Just the truth

    Doesn't mean he won't look like a star Sunday. He's gotta find consistency.
