Hopkins has proven his ability to play through injuries, and his history is about as safe as any veteran at his position. Draft with complete confidence.
2019 - Right shoulder separation (likely grade 2 vs 3 AC joint sprain), sustained in January
2017 - Left calf strain (1 game missed)
2015 - Concussion (no games missed)
2014 - Right wrist ligament tear, treated with surgery after season (no games missed)
2013 - Concussion (no games missed)
2020 - 16/16
2019 - 15/16
2018 - 16/16
2017 - 15/16
2016 - 16/16

Expect Hopkins to be at full strength to start 2021. With another year in the same offense, we’d be surprised if he wasn’t at least as effective as 2020.
Hopkins has successfully avoid major injury so far in his career, and has demonstrated the ability to play through minor injuries when medically cleared. Therefore, we consider him one of the lowest risk elite players in the NFL.
