DeAndre Hopkins Was The Top Rated PFF Recipient Through Three Games | Instant News


There are many instances of stars changing teams and then not living up to their previous glory.

Looks like that won’t be a problem withDeAndre Hopkins.

The All-Pro receiver has started his Cardinals career in flames, catching 32 passes from 356 yards and touchdowns over three games. Hopkins leads the NFL in catches and yards, and after racking up the team’s best 91.1 offensive score on Sunday against the Lions, is the league’s highest scoring recipient by Focus Football Pro.

Atlanta’s Calvin Ridley (grade 86.3) was the closest recipient to Hopkins (89.4) in the scoring. Hopkins has the fifth best offensive class in the NFL among players with 200 or more hits, behind Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Jared Goff and David Bakhtiari.

Another Pro Football Focus look from Week 3:

  • PFF assessment forKyler Murrayclearly goes against conventional wisdom. Murray burned Washington to the ground on Week 2 but was only given a score of 66.2 for that performance. He made three interceptions on Sunday and was lucky not to get a fourth, but Pro Football Focus still gave him the best overall score of the season at 73.2, and a solid pass mark of 68.1.
  • Outer linebackerDevon Kennardhas the highest defense value. He is rated 78.9, with the PFF praising him for his fine play overpowering the passer.
  • SecurityChris Banjohad the team’s best 75.0 coverage score in 18 collisions, but when he left the game with a hamstring injury his substitute was unable to keep him. Deionte Thompson was given a coverage score of 48.0 and Curtis Riley with a score of 42.7. The PFF also thought cornerbacks Byron Murphy (39.5) and Dre Kirkpatrick (38.9) struggled with coverage.
  • Receiver widthAndy Isabellawas given the team’s second-highest overall score at 84.7 after his two-goal performance in place of Christian Kirk.
  • SecurityJustin Pughcontinued his fine season with a pass-blocking score of 82.8, as all five offensive midfielders defended well in that respect. Pugh’s pass-blocking grade 85.4 is the fifth among NFL offensive midfielders to have played 200 or more snaps this season.
