Summary

At age 33, Andre Johnson is not getting any younger, but on the same token he is coming off two consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions and is still a viable fantasy option at wide receiver. His quarterback situation makes it difficult to assume the same results are inevitable, but this is the same player who found Pro Bowl success with David Carr and Sage Rosenfels under center. If he can stay healthy and be the go-to option for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, he'll have a good chance to finish in the Top 20. There was talk about Johnson having mixed feelings about staying with the team during their new rebuilding phase, however that appears to no longer be a concern. Houston was adamant not to trade him and Johnson changed his stance. He is now committed to working with and meshing with Fitzpatrick, who was a student of Harvard and is veteran of the game and quarterback position. Johnson should still be an asset to the team and major contributor similar to years past. His numbers overall may drop off some, due to the new offense and the growing pains associated with that. Second year receiver DeAndre Hopkins also figures to have an increased role that could put a squeeze on Johnson's sheer number or targets. (July 29)

Latest News

Texans | Andre Johnson sits out (Wed Jul 30, 12:18 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, July 30. Head coach Bill O'Brien has said the team is being cautious with Johnson.

Our View: There's no need to risk further injury for the seasoned veteran here. It's wise for the Texans to ease him back.

Texans | Andre Johnson exits with strained hamstring (Tue Jul 29, 03:55 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) left practice Tuesday, July 29, with a strained hamstring.

Our View: Johnson stayed away from the team facility this offseason as he was unhappy with the perceived direction (down) of the offense and the quarterback play. Now he's back and banged up. The veteran needs to get back into football shape, but the team won't rush him back here.

Texans | Andre Johnson more comfortable (Mon Jul 28, 02:35 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said he's feeling more comfortable with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Texans' offense.

Our View: Johnson is kissing and making up with the Texans here. Fitzpatrick isn't a terrible quarterback, but he's one of the worst starters in the league. Johnson expressed his frustration with the direction of the offense earlier this year by staying away from the facility. The Texans weren't going to trade him, and when Johnson realized that he showed up.

Texans | Andre Johnson to be moved around (Sat Jul 26, 11:53 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said he will be moved around to different spots in head coach Bill O'Brien's offensive system.

Our View: The Texans need to be creative with the way they use Johnson this year. He was upset with their offensive direction this offseason, but he's not going anywhere. Johnson is going off the board at WR15 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Texans | Andre Johnson wants to end career with Texans (Fri Jul 25, 12:26 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said 'That's the plan' when asked if he wants to finish his career with the team. He feels confident with the direction of the team after meeting with the front office. Johnson ended his holdout this week.

Our View: He'd also like a Super Bowl, a good quarterback and a purple unicorn. Of the list of things he wants, the only one that sounds likely is finishing his career with the Texans. They won't trade him, and it looks like they will try and make him forget about the whole "400th rebuild during your career" thing with money. So it seems that Johnson's WR2 ranking is likely to remain the case unless his "Blue Light Special" quarterback group gets good or gets worse.
