Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs JAX (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

While the Colts' shift to a more timing-based, short-passing offense for backup Matt Hasselbeck seemed like it would aid the veteran wide receiver, Johnson was held without a catch for the second-consecutive week. Separating from man coverage continues to be an issue, and the Colts haven't figured out how to involve him with his current limitations. With a potential revenge game coming up against Houston on Thursday, Johnson has one more shot to exhibit promising signs, but fantasy owners' patience shouldn't last much longer.

2015 Week 3 vs TEN (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Maybe the Texans were right about Andre Johnson. Through three games, Johnson has 18 targets, but just 51 total receiving yards on those targets. His lone target on Sunday was a quick slant over the middle, where there was space, but Johnson stumbled and watched the ball bounce off his hands. Johnson's drops and inconsistencies in contested catch situations has been the biggest concern so far this season. He still looks like he has some left in the tank as a rhythm/short-area receiver, but it won't result in production until he and Andrew Luck get on the same page.

2015 Week 2 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)

Easily the most disappointing newcomer in Indianapolis, Andre Johnson had another horrible day on Monday, struggling to get separation from defensive backs and being too inconsistent against contested catches to make up for it. Johnson has an abysmal 41.2 percent catch rate through two weeks, and has yet to gain more than 12 yards on a single reception. He'll have better days against less talented secondaries, but he isn't having nearly the impact the Colts hoped he might.

2015 Week 1 vs BUF (10 / 4 / 24 / 0 rec)

The former Texan didn't have as explosive of a debut as hoped, looking much more sluggish than anticipated. While the Bills had discussed using Stephon Gilmore to shadow No. 1 receivers, they did no such thing on Sunday, and Johnson struggled to get open when matched up against the emerging cornerback. Johnson also had two drops and was off on his timing with Luck, although part of that was due to wet conditions that affected the whole team. On a positive note, the future Hall-of-Famer had a beautiful catch going to the ground on a slant under duress, the kind of contested catch the Colts will want to see more of in the future. Johnson saw 10 targets on Sunday, most of which came with T.Y. Hilton nursing an injury. If Hilton misses extended time, Johnson should be Luck's go-to receiver.


Latest News

Colts | Andre Johnson has disappeared (Tue Oct 6, 02:27 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson had just two targets and was held without a catch again in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and has disappeared in the offense often this year. WR T.Y. Hilton had 11 more targets than Johnson this past week and TE Coby Fleener was targeted 10 more times. Johnson has struggled to create separation from opposing secondaries and is often the third, fourth or fifth option in the receiving game. He has mostly played out wide his entire career but has often found himself lining up in the slot this year, too. Even more perplexing is that Johnson was dominant in training camp and developed a strong rapport with QB Andrew Luck.

Our View: We'll remember a better time for Johnson, but now he looks old and slow. Fantasy owners should have moved on from the veteran receiver. He was thought of as a WR2 entering this year, and now he's not worth rostering in most leagues.

Colts | Andre Johnson without a catch again (Sun Oct 4, 06:20 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson went without a catch once again Sunday, Oct. 4, in a 16-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Our View: Johnson can probably even be dropped in dynasty leagues at this point. Let's try to remember him as Texans Andre Johnson.

Colts | Andre Johnson off injury report (Fri Oct 2, 05:04 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is no longer on the injury report for Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Colts | Breakout game for Andre Johnson? (Thu Oct 1, 12:03 AM) - Indianapolis Colts WR Andre Johnson will face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4. As a member of the Houston Texans last season Johnson had his only double-digit reception and 100-yard game against the Jaguars. He finished with 10 grabs for 134 yards and a touchdown Dec. 28, 2014, against the Jags, and he has three 100-yard games against them in his past six, including a career-high 273 yards in a game Nov. 18, 2012.

Our View: You can look at the past all you want, but we prefer to look at the present. Andrew Luck is not having good luck targeting Johnson this year, and the veteran receiver looks old and slow. You have better options out there.
