Why DeAndre Hopkins will go OVER or UNDER on receiving yards, TDs for 2021 NFL season

DeAndre Hopkins can deliver even better production in his second season with the Arizona Cardinals.

DeAndre Hopkins, one of the best receivers in the NFL, will enter Year 2 with the Arizona Cardinals in 2021. Paired with quarterback Kyler Murray and working in an offense predicated on the pass, Hopkins should deliver another top-shelf campaign.

Here, we take a look at the prop bets on the table for Hopkins on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

DeAndre Hopkins player props for 2021 NFL season

1350.5 receiving yards: Over (+100) or Under (-130)

Our pick: Over

Hopkins has done two things especially well since entering the league: produce catches and receiving yards. Even in the 16-game format, the All-Pro wideout went over 1,350.5 receiving yards in three of the last four seasons. Hopkins shouldn’t see his target share diminished to any significant degree in 2021, so the over seems like the smart play here.

7.5 receiving touchdowns: Over (-130) or Under (+100)

Our pick: Under

Hopkins, who has missed just two games in his entire NFL career, can reasonably expect to play in every game in 2021. Even so, the Cardinals’ passing game haven’t done a great job in the red zone under head coach Kliff Kingsbury, and Hopkins doesn’t typically produce many long touchdowns. While the extra game on the schedule makes the over tempting, his numbers suggest coming in under 7.5.
