FNTSY: Why's Hopkins the Top Fantasy WR?

Amidst the inconsistency and injuries for the Houston Texans, wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has been firmly establishing himself as one of the top-five players at his position in 2015. As the Texans took on the New York Jets in Week 11, everyone was curious to see how he would fare against arguably the league's best corner in Darrelle Revis. It's safe to say it's going quite well for Hopkins.

Late in the second quarter, Hopkins released after a move right past the line-of-scrimmage and broke loose downfield. From that first move, he absolutely torched Revis and had a couple of steps on him the entire way down the field. T.J. Yates hit him with a beautiful deep ball and Revis was left on the ground after diving to try and catch Hopkins, who was trotting into the end zone:


Though this was the first one that resulted in a long touchdown, Revis covering Hopkins is apparently a mismatch in favor the Texans. All day on Sunday, Hopkins has been finding space with Revis covering him and then making plays.

Names like Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., and so on are always thrown around as the best receivers in the league. I'm not sure what else Hopkins has to do to put himself firmly in that mix.
