Texans receivers could succeed in a shootout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12:47 pm ET) Andre Johnson is still the top target in the Texans passing game, but DeAndre Hopkins has outproduced him so far. Still, Fantasy owners should feel comfortable relying on both in Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Dallas has done a better job than we expected on defense this season, with opposing wide receivers averaging just 16.0 Fantasy points per game. However, this receiving duo has been productive so far, and we expect that to continue; they are averaging 138.3 yards per game through four games.

The Cowboys defensive backfield has held up well, but this receiving duo is too productive at this point to consider benching, especially in what could end up being a shootout. Jamey Eisenberg has Johnson ranked as low as 35th among wide receivers, but Dave Richard's ranking has Johnson inside the top-30. Consider Hopkins a solid starter, with Johnson more of a flex or No. 3 option. 


Andre Johnson returns to action in Week 4


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson has returned to the game after being listed as questionable to return with an ankle injury. He likely won't have his number called with his team up six points and looking to run out the clock, but it appears his injury was minor.

Andre Johnson questionable to return vs. Bills


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bills with an ankle injury.

Johnson had the injured foot checked out on the sidelines before jogging back to the locker room for further examination. He has a team-leading six catches and 71 receiving yards in the game.


Texans announce inactive list for Week 4


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Texans have designated the following players as inactive for Sunday's Week 4 matchup with the Bills: quarterback Tom Savage, safeties Shiloh Keo (calf) and Eddie Pleasant (ankle), linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee), cornerback A.J. Bouye (groin), wide receiver DeVier Posey and offensive tackle Jeff Adams.

Bouye was questionable to play this week, while Keo, Pleasant and Clowney had all been previously ruled out. Running back Arian Foster (hamstring) and punter Shane Lechler (hip) are active after being listed as questionable. Wide receiver Andre Johnson (ankle), defensive ends Jared Crick (neck) and Tim Jamison (groin), cornerbacks Kareem Jackson (thigh) and Johnathan Joseph (foot/ankle, neck), safety D.J. Swearinger (elbow, hip) and guard Ben Jones (knee) are all active for the game.


Andre Johnson probable for Week 4 battle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Texans stud wideout Andre Johnson is all but set to play Sunday against visiting Buffalo. He has been deemed probable with a nagging ankle ailment.

Johnson is coming off a rare unproductive performance in which he caught just four passes for 24 yards. He has 16 catches for 191 yards in three games, but has yet to score a touchdown.


Andre Johnson held to 24 yards despite 11 targets Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Texans veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson had a rough performance during a 30-17 loss Week 3 at N.Y. Giants. Johnson was targeted a team-high 11 times, but he finished with just four catches for 24 yards.

Johnson came close to salvaging his day with a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. However, he was interfered with by Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara on a pass into the end zone that could have resulted in a 12-yard touchdown. Two plays later, Johnson was targeted on a 1-yard touchdown pass, but he couldn't haul it in.

Johnson has now gone 10 games without a touchdown catch. The Texans are back in action Week 4 vs. Buffalo.

Andre Johnson nearing green light for Sunday action


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Texans stud wide Andre Johnson appears set to play Sunday against the Giants despite an ankle ailment. He is listed as probable.

Andre Johnson racks up 74 yards in comfortable Week 2 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) 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.


Texans have 11 injured players ruled active for Week 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The following injured Texans have been ruled active for Week 2 at Oakland: A.J. Bouye (shoulder), Brian Cushing (ankle), Arian Foster (ribs), Garrett Graham (back), Tim Jamison (groin), Andre Johnson (ankle), Johnathan Joseph (foot), Elbert Mack (foot), Mike Mohamed (quadriceps), Jay Prosch (hand) and J.J. Watt (ankle, illness).

Texans list 10 as probable Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) The Texans have listed 10 players as probable Week 2 against the Raiders.

Tight end Garrett Graham WR Andre Johnson, CB Johnathan Joseph, CB A.J. Bouye, OL Tyson Clabo, LB Brian Cushing, RB Arian Foster, DE Tim Jamison, CB Elbert Mack, LB Mike Mohamed, OL Chris Myers, OL Derek Newton, FB Jay Prosch, OL Xaier Su'a-Filo, DE J.J. Watt and DT Louis Nix II are all probable heading into the game.

Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was the only player ruled out for Week 2. 


Andre Johnson almost has another 100-yard game in opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) 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
(9/4/2014) 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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
