|Andre Johnson gets another shot at Colts |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/10/13) When he set season highs with 21 targets and 13 catches Week 14 at Jacksonville, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson also put together his fourth 100-yard game in the last six weeks -- a streak that started with arguably the best game of his career Week 9 against the Colts, when he caught nine passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns.
So then, his matchup in Week 15 is of special interest to Fantasy owners. He'll be visiting those same Colts.
The Colts rank a not-so-terrible 18th against the pass, allowing 241.5 yards per game, but in general, they've struggled against wide receivers, allowing the seventh-most Fantasy points to them. They surrendered 72 yards and a touchdown to the Bengals' A.J. Green last week and two touchdowns to the Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald in Week 12.
Of course, the Texans have had turmoil at quarterback in recent weeks, but Johnson appears to be immunte to it. His monster performance in Week 9 came with Case Keenum under center, and Keenum is expected to start in Week 15. Clearly, you wouldn't want to bench Johnson for this one.
|Andre Johnson's big game makes history |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/6/13) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson took a while to get going in Week 14 against the Jaguars, but once he did there was little that could stop him in a 27-20 loss.
Johnson was mostly a nonfactor in the first half, as he brought in just two passes for 14 yards. He didn't really get going until backup quarterback Matt Schaub entered the game in the third quarter, as he brought in just five of nine passes thrown his way by Case Keenum.
Once Schaub entered the game, he went to Johnson early and often. Johnson was targeted 12 times by Schaub and brought in eight of them for 99 yards. He finished the game with 13 catches for 154 yards, giving him an NFL-record 20 games with at least 10 receptions and 100 yards receiving.
Johnson has scored just five times this season, but remains as productive as ever otherwise. The 32-year-old heads into Week 15 against the Colts with 1,277 yards on 95 receptions.
|Andre Johnson should exact revenge on Jags |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/3/13) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson had what was arguably his worst game of the season in Week 12 against the Jaguars, catching two passes for 36 yards.
Thursday night brings a chance at redemption, as the Texans face Jacksonville for the second time in 11 days. Johnson is coming off an eight-catch, 121-yard game in Week 13. And depending on how you look at Johnson, this is either a great matchup, or a bad stop on a recent pattern.
The great matchup camp: Johnson has three games of 100-plus yards in his last five, along with five touchdowns, just one game with fewer than 11 Fantasy points (in a standard league), and an average of 11.4 targets per game in that span. Additionally, the Jaguars have allowed wide receivers to score five touchdowns over the last three games, and are susceptible to big-play receivers -- Michael Floyd had 193 receiving yards in Week 11, while Josh Gordon had 261 in Week 13. Johnson already has shown he's capable of a big game, gaining 229 in Week 9 against the Colts.
The bad stop on a recent pattern camp: Johnson has 37 or fewer yards in two of his last four games. And it's been on an every-other-game pace; if that pattern keeps up, he'll land on another sub-40 game this week. He hasn't scored a touchdown in three games, and has just 15 targets over his last two. Johnson caught just two passes in Week 12 against the Jaguars, and Case Keenum seems to be stuck in a funk. It's a Thursday night game, and while the Jags have been unimpressive recently against wide receivers, they're league average for Fantasy points allowed and receiving yards allowed per game.
Still, Johnson has already surpassed 1,100 yards on the season, and the Texans are likely motivated to prove that Week 12 was a fluke. He should be started in most Fantasy formats.
|Andre Johnson second fastest to 900 career catches |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/1/13) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson recorded his 900th career reception Week 13 vs. New England, but the milestone was overshadowed by a 34-31 loss, which dropped Houston to 2-10. Johnson was still appreciative of the moment.
"It's humbling. It shows that the work you put into the game is paying off," said Johnson, who the second fastest in NFL history to 900 catches, only trailing Marvin Harrison.
Johnson had a strong performance Sunday, totaling eight catches for 121 yards. His longest catch went 29 yards and he failed to haul in just one of nine targets. Johnson had two catches of 20-plus yards Sunday.
Johnson has five games this season with at least 100 receiving yards, with three coming in the last five games. Unfortunately, Johnson's touchdown slump extended to three games Sunday. The Texans are back in action Week 14 at Jacksonville (Thursday).
|Andre Johnson facing poor matchup Week 13 |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(11/29/13) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is looking at a poor matchup Week 13 against the Patriots.
The Patriots have been slightly above-average against opposing wideouts, holding them to 20.00 Fantasy points per game. The team has given up 18 passing touchdowns in 11 games. On top of that, Johnson should draw Aqib Talib, who has been strong against number one wide receivers all season. Talib has allowed number one receivers to score just three touchdowns this season.
Until last week, Johnson had been on fire with Case Keenum at quarterback. He's scored all five of his touchdowns, and gone over 100 yards twice, including a 229 yard performance. But with Keenum struggling Week 12, Johnson was held to just two catches. Johnson is clearly Keenum's top option, but he'll have to regain his form in order for Johnson to have a big game. Given the matchup, starting Johnson is a risk.
|Concerns about missing time because of injuries pushed Andre Johnson down draft boards last season, but those were put to rest after he had a career-high 1,598 yards during the regular season. The 31-year-old also racked up 112 receptions for his first season with 100-plus catches since 2009 -- and fourth overall -- but finished with just four touchdowns. Johnson will be 32 when the season kicks off and is pretty much the only receiving threat on the Texans and still has a small injury stigma floating over him. But because he's such a fantastic talent owners probably shouldn't resist him as a low-end No. 1 Fantasy receiver worth a pick in Round 3. (Updated 4/26/13) |
