|Andre Johnson racks up 74 yards in comfortable Week 2 win |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/14/14) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson received three stitches to the face after being gashed by Charles Woodson in a Week 2 win over the Raiders in Oakland.
The injury didn't impact Johnson's performance, as he still led the team in receiving. He caught five passes for 54 yards in the first half. He was limited to two receptions in the second half. His longest gain was a short screen pass for a pick-up of 20 yards in the third quarter Johnson was targeted seven times and finished with six grabs for 74 yards, averaging 12.3. yards per catch in a 30-14 victory.
Johnson has 12 catches for 167 yards through two games. He has yet to score a touchdown. He will look to change that in Week 3 in New York against the Giants.

|Andre Johnson almost has another 100-yard game in opener |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/7/14) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson fell 7 yards shy Sunday against the Redskins of recording his sixth career 100-yard game in a season opener. He settled for a team-high 93 receiving yards on six catches in a 17-6 win Week 1.
Johnson was targeted a team-high nine times by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was making his first regular-season start for Houston. Johnson's longest catch went 23 yards.
The Texans are back in action Week 2 at Oakland.
|Andre Johnson is a big-time performer in openers |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(9/4/14) Texans veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson is no stranger to having big performances in season openers. He's surpassed 100 receiving yards five times in Week 1 matchups, including a 12-catch, 146-yard performance last year, which is the most 100-yard games in season openers among active players.
The Texans opponent Sunday will be the Redskins, who allowed Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson to surpass 100 yards in the season opener in 2013. The Redskins would surrender a 100-yard performance to a receiver six more times, but none in the final eight games. Wide receivers averaged 167.1 receiving yards and 22.1 Fantasy points per week, while totaling 16 touchdowns in 16 games against Washington.
Johnson appeared in just one preseason game, so he could have fresh legs heading into the opener. Though, you wonder what kind of rapport he has with veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is in his first year with Houston.
Johnson thrived when Matt Schuab was the Texans quarterback, and Fitzpatrick had pretty good success throwing to Stevie Johnson when he was with Buffalo, so maybe Fantasy owners shouldn't get too worried now that Fitzpatrick is under center for Houston. For now, though, it might be safer to consider Johnson a No. 2 Fantasy wide receiver.

Week 2 Fantasy Rewind
The second week of the season sure offered owners some bad news in the form of major injuries. Our Dave Richard shares his initial observations from a busy Sunday of action.
|It's hard to believe Andre Johnson is entering his 12th season at the age of 33 years old. It's not quite as hard to believe he's doing so with over 1,400 yards in each of his last two seasons and at least 1,200 yards in five of his last six seasons. It's also not hard to believe that Johnson is unhappy with his situation in Houston as the team heads toward a rebuilding season. If he stays in town, Johnson will catch passes from a new starter, either Ryan Fitzpatrick or rookie Tom Savage. Johnson has put up good numbers in the past with bad quarterbacks, so it's not a deal breaker for his Fantasy value. What he'll need is targets, something he's had a ton of in the past -- he's finished in the Top 5 in targets and catches each of the last two seasons. The only way that changes is if an injury slows him down. He'll also need touchdowns, and that's a worry because Johnson has 11 in three seasons. Maybe a QB change and offensive scheme makeover will open up more red zone chances for him, but it's not even close to being a lock. If we're playing it safe then let Johnson come to you as an on-the-fence No. 1/No. 2 Fantasy receiver. He'll probably get picked between 35th and 45th overall in every single draft.
