Hip injury sidelines Dennis Johnson for finale
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/13) Texans running back Dennis Johnson is inactive for Week 17 against the Titans, as expected. Johnson was considered questionable coming into the game with a hip injury, after being unable to practice throughout the week. 
Four Texans threatened with inactive tag for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/13) The Texans have placed 17 on their Friday injury report as they prepare to play Sunday at Tennessee. But only four have been tagged as anything but probable. They are wide receiver DeVier Posey (ankle), who has been ruled out, and running back Dennis Johnson (hip), quarterback Case Keenum (thumb) and linebcker Joe Mays (knee).
Texans dealing with injuries to top players
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/23/13) A toe injury will keep Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph from playing in the season finale at Tennessee. Running back Deji Karim (clavicle) will also be out while fellow back Dennis Johnson (hip) might miss the game as well.
Dennis Johnson has 30 total yards
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/13) Texans running back Dennis Johnson had 12 carries for 29 yards in Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Broncos. He also caught two passes for one yard. 

Johnson had 10 carries at halftime, but yielded most of the carries to Deji Karim in the second half. Johnson may have been injured in the third quarter, but reporters didn't make any note of it during the game or immediately after. 

The Texans face the Titans in Week 17. With Karim limping off the field in the fourth quarter, it's unclear who will start for the Texans in their season finale. 

Dennis Johnson risky, but has upside
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/13) Texans running back Dennis Johnson is expected to get most of the Week 16 carries against the Broncos, with Ben Tate heading to IR. Johnson broke out in Week 12 against the Jaguars, replacing an ineffective Tate and gaining 74 yards on 13 carries. 

This will be the first week Johnson gets a shot at being the starter. While he was disappointing after his big game, it was mainly due to his usage, not some lessening of skill. Week 16 should allow Johnson to carry the ball 15-20 times, against a Denver defense that has allowed 15 rushing touchdowns this season. Over the last four games, the Broncos have allowed two backs to run for 90 or more yards, while giving up six touchdowns to the position. The Broncos have also allowed an average of 37.3 receiving yards per game to opposing backs. 

Barring some crazy Edwin Baker-style surprise, Johnson should be the starter for the Texans this Sunday. And the matchup is good enough to give him consideration in some formats. But chasing after Johnson and plugging him in just because he's a starter could backfire, especially if the Texans are forced to pass a lot in a catch-up in-game strategy. 

Johnson is a nice add, if for no other reason than to block your opponent from grabbing him, but his matchup is risky enough to keep him on the bench in favor of better options.
