The Arizona Cardinals announced Week 10 inactives and DeAndre Hopkins is officially inactive for their matchup against the Panthers. Hopkins was listed as questionable this week due to a hamstring injury. The All-Pro wideout missed practice all week but was still listed as a game-time decision on Friday.

Hopkins will now officially miss his second consecutive game due to this nagging hamstring injury. He started experiencing problems in their Week 8 loss to the Packers on Thursday Night Football, where he caught two passes for 66 yards and appeared in just 25% of the offensive snaps. He ended up missing last week’s victory over the 49ers and head coach Kliff Kingsbury has now decided to let him rest for another week.

With D-Hop out, that opens the door for Christian Kirk to do more of the heavy lifting. He has 545 receiving yards and four touchdowns on the year and should be a good WR2 option for fantasy managers this season.
