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 | 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.

Texans | Two starters sitting (Sat Aug 16, 07:08 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) and WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) will not play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Our View: It's wise for the Texans to shut these two down this week. The Texans travel to Denver for practice next week. Our very own Cecil Lammey will keep us up to date from Dove Valley as the Broncos and Texans hold joint practices.

Texans | Have not decided on if Andre Johnson will play Saturday (Thu Aug 14, 01:35 PM) - The Houston Texans have not decided if WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) will play in the second preseason game, but he is close to fully participating in practice, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Johnson participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, for the second straight day.

Our View: Johnson has had some soft tissue problems that hampered him in-season before, so this bears watching, but it shouldn't downgrade him... yet. If he can't play in the third preseason game, then it might be time move him down a tier.
