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)

Texans | Andre Johnson looking good (Wed Aug 20, 10:32 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has showed no signs of rust from his time away from the team this offseason. Johnson had an impressive practice during joint workouts with the Denver Broncos Wednesday, Aug. 20. 'He's a big part of what we're doing here,' head coach Bill O'Brien said.

Texans | Three participate in practice (Tue Aug 19, 04:17 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring), WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) and LB Brian Cushing (undisclosed) were all active for practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Our View: Another step in the right direction for Johnson and Foster, but more of a baby step than real progress. We want to see both play in the third game of the preseason this weekend to feel comfortable taking them at their 2nd and 4th round ADP.
