Andre Johnson says Texans should trade No. 1 pick


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson said Wednesday the team should trade away the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, reports KTRK-TV in Houston.

"I have thought about different scenarios," he said. "Me personally, if I had it, I would probably trade it, but that's just my opinion. ... Doesn't mean they should listen to me because I am not the GM. I have never had to sit in the draft room like that."

Johnson did say that a rebuilding process would be difficult, but that he expects to be a Texans player for the rest of his career.

"I think so. I really couldn't picture myself in another jersey." Johnson said. "I hope it ends up that way. You can only control what you can."


Andre Johnson says wrist is fine


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson said he's recovered from a late-season wrist injury that forced him to miss the Pro Bowl, reports the Houston Chronicle.

"I had played for a few weeks (with the wrist) and it was pretty sore, and I didn't want to go back out there and bang it up anymore," Johnson said Wednesday.


Report: Wrist ailment to keep Andre Johnson out of Pro Bowl


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) Recovery from a wrist injury will keep Texans wideout Andre Johnson out of the Pro Bowl, according to Fox 26 in Houston, which has further reported that the wrist did not require surgery.

Johnson, who caught 109 passes for 1,407 yards and five touchdowns this season, missed no time and was not listed as having a wrist injury throughout the year.


DeSean Jackson heading to Pro Bowl


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2014) Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been named to replace Andre Johnson of the Texans in the Pro Bowl. Jackson last earned a spot on the team in 2010. Jackson finished the season with 82 catches for 1,332 yards and nine touchdowns.

Andre Johnson reaches 1,400-yard mark


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson's season ended with a whimper in Week 17, in a 16-10 loss to the Titans.

Johnson caught six of the nine passes thrown his way in the game, but the Titans didn't give him much room to work once he had the ball in his hands. He finished with just 49 yards, with a long reception of 13 yards.

Johnson still finished with his fourth 1,400-yard season, despite totaling just 130 yards over the final three games. He wound up with 109 receptions for 1,407 yards and five touchdowns. 


Texans offense in good health Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) A trio of starting offensive players for the Texans were able to play through their injuries in Week 17 against the Titans, as wide receivers Andre Johnson (wrist) and DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) and tight end Ryan Griffin (knee) took the field at kickoff.

Andre Johnson facing tough matchup, QB uncertainty


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Despite dealing with some of the worst quarterback play of his career, Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was named to the NFL Pro Bowl Friday. Given the way his season has gone, it is only proper that he finishes the season with more quarterback questions, as the Texans have yet to name a starter for Week 17 against the Titans.

Even if the Texans had a settled quarterback situation, this isn't the best matchup for Johnson to finish his season with. The Titans have been the best team in the league at defending wide receivers, allowing just 14.1 Fantasy points per game, the lowest mark in the NBA.

Johnson is likely to finish with 1,400-plus yards for the fourth time in his career, but he hasn't put up great numbers to finish the season. That could continue in Week 17, but he remains a starting-caliber Fantasy option even in a tough matchup.

Texans list baker's dozen as probable for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Thirteen Texans have been deemed probable for the last game of the year, including wide receiver Andre Johnson (wrist) and quarterback T.J. Yates (back).

The other offensive probables are tight end Ryan Griffin (knee), wideout DeAndre Hopkins (ankle), fullback Greg Jones (knee) and offensive linemen Wade Smith (knee) and Derek Newton (knee).

The defensive probables are linebackers Brooks Reed (thumb), Darryl Sharpton (knee) and Justin Tuggle (elbow), backs Josh Victorian (back) and D.J. Swearinger (foot) and end Antonio Smith (knee).


Andre Johnson has 63 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson caught four passes for 63 yards in Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Broncos. Johnson was targeted 13 times. 

Johnson's line would have looked much better, but he dropped a perfectly-thrown touchdown pass in the third quarter (he said the sun played a role in the drop). Matt Schaub looked for him deep several times, but the passes were overthrown more often than not. 

Johnson had been dealing with a wrist injury this week, but now has two straight games with fewer than 65 yards after two straight of 120 or more yards. 

The Texans face the Titans in Week 17. 


Andre Johnson's wrist doesn't keep him out


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, who was limited in practice leading up to the game with a wrist injury, is active for Week 16 against the Broncos. He was listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Johnson will be catching passes from Matt Schaub after working mostly with Case Keenum over the last eight games.


Six on Texans offense probable for Broncos battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) The Texans have deemed six offensive players as probable for their Sunday clash against Denver, including premier wide receiver Andre Johnson (wrist).

The rest of the group consists of fellow wideout DeAndre Hopkins (ankle), fullback Greg Jones (knee), tackle Derek Newton (knee), guard Wade Smith (knee) and backup quarterback T.J. Yates (back).


Andre Johnson misses practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Texans receiver Andre Johnson did not practice Wednesday due to a wrist injury. However, Johnson is expected to play Sunday vs. Denver.

Andre Johnson has solid Week 16 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson managed just 18 yards on four catches in Week 15 against the Colts. But this Sunday's matchup against the Broncos gives Johnson ample opportunity to get back into a groove that saw him go over 116 yards in three of his previous four games. 

The Broncos have allowed a wide receiver touchdown in five straight games, giving up seven in that span. Two receivers have gone over 100 yards and two (Keenan Allen and Julian Edelman) have scored twice in a game over that stretch. Johnson's a nice fit for this matchup, because his scoring has come in bunches (he's scored five touchdowns this season, all coming over two games) and he has six games of 100-plus yards. 

Johnson has been erratic this season, and his best games have come with Case Keenum as his quarterback (Matt Schaub is starting this week), but he's still a great wide receiver option and can be started in most formats. 


Andre Johnson can't make good on targets


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Coming off a monstrous performance Week 14 at Jacksonville in which he was targeted 21 times, catching 13 passes for 154 yards, wide receiver Andre Johnson remained the Texans' go-to guy Week 15 at Indianapolis, leading the team with 10 targets. Unfortunately, they resulted in just four catches for 18 yards on a day when quarterback Case Keenum struggled with his accuracy, completing 18 of 34 passes while constantly on the run.

In general, Johnson has fared well with Keenum under center, averaging 100.0 yards in eight games since the 25-year-old took over for Matt Schaub. This performance was his worst during that stretch.

Keenum threw for only 168 yards on the day. Tight end Ryan Griffin, who was replacing an injured Garrett Graham, had 62 of them on six catches.

Johnson and Keenum will look to get back on track Week 16 against the Broncos.


Andre Johnson gets another shot at Colts


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/10/2013) 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
(12/6/2013) 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
(12/3/2013) 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
(12/1/2013) 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
(11/29/2013) 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.


Andre Johnson has worst game of season Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was held to two catches for 36 yards -- both season lows -- during a 13-6 loss Week 12 vs. Jacksonville. Johnson was targeted six times in the loss.

Johnson had no catches on two targets in the first half. His poor performance was due to quarterback Case Keenum not being able to get in sync offensively. Keenum completed just 18 of 34 passes for 169 yards and one interception.

Johnson, who had been putting up good numbers with Keenum running the offense, will look to get back on track Week 13 vs. New England.


Andre Johnson getting closer to 900 career receptions


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson needs 10 catches to become the 15th player in NFL history to reach 900 for his career. Johnson posted his 19th career 10-catch, 100-yard performance Week 11, which is the most in NFL history, so perhaps Johnson could reach another career milestone Week 12 vs. Jacksonville.

The last time Johnson faced Jacksonville in 2012, he compiled 14 catches for 273 yards -- both career highs. Johnson has been very good at home this season, averaging 123.8 receiving yards per game, so the Jaguars are going to have their hands full trying to slow down the veteran receiver.

Wide receivers are averaging 153.2 receiving yards and 22.2 Fantasy points per week against Jacksonville. Receivers have also totaled 12 touchdowns in 10 games. 

Although Johnson's career performance last season came with Matt Schaub running the Texans' offense, we all know Johnson has really stepped up his game the last few weeks since Case Keenum took over at quarterback.

Keenum was benched Week 11 vs. Oakland, but he will be back starting Sunday. Therefore, continue to keep Johnson active in all Fantasy formats.


Andre Johnson a must-start


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/15/2013) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson in on a roll, with five touchdowns in his last two games -- all with Case Keenum as his quarterback. Week 11 brings a matchup against the Raiders, who have allowed the seventh-most Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season. 

A great deal of the damage came in Week 9 against Philadelphia, when the Eagles scored four touchdowns against the Raiders. And the Raiders also gave up two scores to the Broncos' receivers in Week 3. In every other game, the Raiders have held opposing wideouts to one touchdown or fewer. 

There's a trend here -- the elite wide receivers bubble to the top against Oakland. Johnson has some serious momentum, has great chemistry with his quarterback, and has performed at an elite level most of his career. He should be started in most formats against the Raiders. 


Andre Johnson looks for scoring streak


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/8/2013) Now that Texans receiver Andre Johnson finally had his first game with a touchdown in Week 9 against the Colts, we hope he can start a scoring streak heading into Week 10 at Arizona.

Johnson had his best game of the season against Indianapolis with nine catches for 229 yards and three touchdowns. It was his third career 200-yard game, and it was the first time he scored three times in a game.

Johnson had 13 targets from Case Keenum, and in two games with Keenum he has 19 targets for 13 catches, 318 yards and the three scores. It's clear the two already have a solid rapport.

This week, Johnson faces a Cardinals defense that has allowed six touchdowns to opposing receivers and four have scored double digits in Fantasy points. Johnson will likely match up with standout cornerback Patrick Peterson in this game, which could be a tough cover.

But based on how Johnson played against the Colts, and with how Keenum is looking for him, we consider Johnson a solid Fantasy option in this matchup. He should be considered a must-start receiver in all leagues.


Andre Johnson posts third career 200-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2013) Texans receiver Andre Johnson was unstoppable Week 9 vs. the Colts. Notching his third career 200-yard game, Johnson caught nine passes for 229 yards and a career-high three touchdowns, his first scores this season.

Johnson caught scoring grabs of 62, 41 and 5 yards from Case Keenum in the first half. Keenum targeted Johnson a team-high 13 times -- more than twice as much as any other receiver. Until the 62-yard bomb on the opening drive, iJohnson had made 74 straight catches dating to last year without scoring.

Keenum kept looking for Johnson. Their 5-yard, end-zone fade 39 seconds before halftime was a welcome sight for Fantasy owners used to seeing Matt Schaub lock in on his tight ends. Johnson had a 10th catch taken away by replay in the fourth quarter.

He'll battle corner Patrick Peterson in Week 10 at Arizona.
