Injury: Knee

Status: Out for Week 18 at San Francisco

UPDATE (JAN. 5): Hopkins (knee) has been ruled out of Sunday’s regular-season finale against the 49ers, according to’s Josh Weinfuss.

UPDATE (DEC. 31): Hopkins (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Falcons, Tyler Drake of reports.

UPDATE (DEC. 18): Hopkins caught seven of 11 targets for 79 yards and lost a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in the Cardinals’ 27-13 loss to the Patriots on Monday night.

UPDATE (Dec. 12): Hopkins (illness) participated fully in Friday’s walk-through practice, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official website.

UPDATE 3: In the 49ers’ 38-10 loss on Monday, Hopkins had nine receptions on 12 targets for 91 yards.

UPDATE 2: Hopkins (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against the 49ers in Mexico City, is expected to play, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

UPDATE: Hopkins (hamstring) finished the week with two limited practice sessions, but his status as “questionable” remains a legitimate concern with the Cardinals not playing until Monday night.

Coach Kliff Kingsbury initially suggested Hopkins was resting for “maintenance,” so let’s hope he was telling the truth.

Hopkins will be a must-start if he remains active. If Hopkins is ruled out, Moore and Brown, both capable starters, should see increased opportunities. It could also mean more opportunities for McBride, who has some underappreciated talent.

At this point, it’s worth waiting for Hopkins. If you do, you must have an emergency fill-in available, such as Jauan Jennings, Robbie Anderson, or Greg Dortch. You could also use TE Trey McBride or RB Keaontay Ingram in your flex spot.

None of those guys are likely to do much, but having a chance at some points is preferable to a guaranteed zero.
