Is DeAndre Hopkins playing Week 13?
Hopkins (hamstring) hasn’t played since Week 8, but he’s still not quite fit after the Arizona goodbye. He managed to limited practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and he will be the time decision maker for Sunday’s game against Chicago.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport report at the beginning of the week that Hopkins is expected to play and as long as he does, he must start in this favorable match. If he goes out, then Christian Kirk and AJ Green will both have WR3 value. You might have a chance with both even while Hopkins is active, but given the fact that QB Kyler Murray (ankle) is “problematic” and the weather forecast is suboptimal, it’s hard to tell which ones What to expect from Arizona’s normal offensive behavior this week.
Does Brandin Cooks Play Week 13?
Cooks (ill) missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to join a limited session on Friday, which suggests he should attend Sunday’s game against Indianapolis.
If Cooks were absent, Nico Collins would be the biggest beneficiary, but given the unpredictability of this offense, no one else would be worth considering. As long as Cooks is active, he is the one to start.
Odell Beckham Jr. are you playing Week 13?
OBJ will be a boom or bust WR for most of the week, but he has the advantage to bid against a relatively soft Jaguars defense this week. If he were out, Van Jefferson would see more targets and become a safer WR3.
