Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is reportedly active for his team's matchup with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.


Hopkins has been dealing with an ankle injury that has kept him out of all three practice sessions the Texans held this week. Hopkins played in every snap of Week 15's game with Andre Johnson absent, so it is unclear when the injury was sustained.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy owners will hopefully have better options to rely on. With Case Keenum likely starting and with Johnson returning to the mix, Hopkins makes for a risky option even at full health. The Ravens' swarming front seven won't make life easy for Keenum and the passing game, prompting fantasy owners to look elsewhere for production this week.
