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. He has since expressed an interest in a trade out of Houston that, if it happens would affect the landscape of the Texans fantasy prospects. Nothing is concrete yet and the Texans claim they do not wish to trade Johnson. However, If a trade does go down especially to a contending team with a strong quarterback situation, Johnson's value could see a slight increase. If he stays with Houston he should still be an asset to the team and be a major contributor similar to years past. His overall numbers could dip due to the new offensive regime with an unknown quarterback situation. (July 11)

Latest News

Texans | Andre Johnson visits team facility (Tue Jul 22, 01:18 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson visited the team facility Monday, July 21. Johnson has visited the facility a few times this offseason. According to a league source, it does not mean Johnson will report to camp on time.

Our View: Johnson was never going to get traded. His salary has too much dead money for the Texans to absorb. He may not be happy with the quarterback situation, but he'll get over it. Johnson's current ADP is WR16 (4.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Texans | Arian Foster: Andre Johnson is Houston (Wed Jul 16, 12:40 PM) - Houston Texans RB Arian Foster said WR Andre Johnson, who reportedly has asked for a trade this offseason, is an embodiment of the city of Houston, and he has more star power than the city's younger sports standouts. 'He is Houston,' Foster said. 'I remember when I had my little run where I had like two back-to-back great seasons. I felt like this city loves me, they love me here. Everywhere I go, this is still Dre's city. I don't care if James Harden is walking around, Dwight Howard, whatever. This is Andre Johnson's city. He is Houston. That's what it means more than anything. He's been a staple here for so long.'

Our View: Johnson is unlikely to be traded because of the salary-cap implications on the Texans. He's unhappy with the direction of the offense and wants out, but Johnson is likely to stay in Houston for at least this season.

Texans | Opinion: Andre Johnson won't be traded (Fri Jul 11, 09:52 AM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson 'is not going to be traded,' in the opinion to John McClain. Houston wants to avoid giving Johnson the $1 million workout bonus that he passed up by not participating in offseason activities or guarantee his 2015 salary. They don't want to create a precedent that can be manipulated by DE J.J. Watt's agent in the future. McClain said that 'Any 33-year-old ... anybody doesn't walk away from' the $10 million that Houston owes Johnson.

Our View: McClain is the best beat writer for the Texans, so we trust his word. In the immortal words of Nick Saban "this ain't fantasy football." It sounds great to put Johnson with the Browns or the Seahawks (or any other team), but the reality is we're unlikely to see the veteran receiver moved. He's frustrated with the team's lack of direction offensively and their rag-tag group of quarterbacks. We can't blame him for the way he feels, but at the end of the day he'll get over it.

Raiders | Connection with Andre Johnson (Thu Jul 10, 09:34 PM) - Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie shares an agent with Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson. The connection could make Oakland a possible landing spot for the disgruntled receiver, according to Ian Rapoport.

Our View: Adding Johnson is a pipe dream scenario for the Raiders. They have a poor group of wide receivers, and their top target is veteran James Jones. If added to the Raiders, Johnson would once again be catching passes from Matt Schaub. We'll see Schaub begin the season as the starter with rookie Derek Carr as the developmental quarterback of the future.

Texans | Andre Johnson willing to restructure deal (Thu Jul 10, 09:05 PM) - Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson is willing to restructure his contract to help potential suitors fit under the salary cap, but he won't take a pay cut, a source told Ian Rapoport.

Our View: Johnson has a $14.6 million cap number this year with around $11.9 million in dead money. This is what's likely to keep him from being traded.
