A shift in the odds from +500 to -300 certainly suggests that the former Cardinals receiver could be suiting up in the Titans’ navy blue in 2023. The race to acquire Hopkins’ talents appears to have narrowed to the Titans and Patriots, with much greater fantasy implications should he land in Tennessee than if he would land in New England.
The arrival of Nuk in the Titans WR room would cast serious doubt on the fantasy prospects of Treylon Burks for this season, who was projected to have the potential to be relevant off of volume alone. Chig Okonkwo would be less influenced by the move, seeing as he’s a tight end, but Hopkins would almost certainly establish a top heavy target distribution if he found a new home in Tennessee.
He’s likely to produce wherever he goes, and the largest questions about Hopkins don’t involve how his landing spot will affect him, but rather how he’ll affect the players that already exist in his new home.
