Andre Johnson moves up to 10th on all-time receptions list


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson recorded his 983th career catch during a 22-13 loss Week 12 vs. Cincinnati and now has the 10th-most catches in NFL history.

Although, Johnson will have to wait at least another game to move further up the list since he didn't do much with a team-high 12 targets Sunday. Johnson finished with three catches for 36 yards. He now has 985 career receptions, which puts him 15 catches behind the next player on the all-time list -- Hines Ward.

The 36 yards were Johnson's third-lowest total this season. He had 12 yards in Week 9 and 24 yards in Week 3. The Texans are back in action Week 13 vs. Tennessee.


QB struggles hurting Texans' wide receivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Texans quarterback Ryan Mallett looked competent in his first start, but his struggles proved costly for wide receivers Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins in Week 12's loss to the Bengals.

Hopkins and Johnson, who had 80 and 68 yards in Mallett's first game in Week 11, combined for just 75 yards Sunday. Mallett had issues with his accuracy throughout the game, completing fewer than half of his passes, and that extended to his top two options. On 21 passes thrown to Hopkins or Johnson, Mallett completed just eight.

The Texans' passing game wasn't exactly lighting the world up with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, but he was probably a more reliable option, at the very least. With Mallett under center, it might be tough to rely on either playing moving forward. 


Texans list lengthy injury report for Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The Texans released a lengthy injury report that included 16 players leading up to Week 12 against Cincinnati. 13 of the 16 players on the list were deemed probable.

Kareem Jackson (knee) was the only player ruled out, while Arian Foster (groin) and Max Bullough (hamstring) were deemed questionable.

The following players were ruled as probable for Sunday: Tyson Clabo (foot), Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Akeem Dent (neck), Jonathan Grimes (ankle), Andre Johnson (rest), Johnathan Joseph (knee), Ryan Mallett (chest), Whitney Mercilus (knee), Mike Mohamed (hip), Darryl Morris (ankle), Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and Justin Tuggle (shoulder).


Texans WR Andre Johnson steady in Sunday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Texans standout wideout Andre Johnson proved steady and productive in the Week 11 defeat of the host Browns.

Johnson finished with a season-high seven catches for 68 yards going mostly head-to-head against Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden. Included was a 16-yarder on the team's second possession to earn a first down.

His next game is set for Week 12 against the visiting Bengals.


Texans WR Andre Johnson: I'm going to give Mallett my best


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Texans standout wideout Andre Johnson feels a responsibility to make the transition easier for new starting quarterback Ryan Mallett, who has taken over that spot from desposed starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.

"I think (Mallett) can throw the ball," Johnson told the team website. "I think both of them can. I think the world of both of them. I support them both. Both of them are my teammates. Whoever is out there, Mallett or Fitz, I'm going to give them my best, do what I can, get open and help them."

Johnson hooked up with Fitzpatrick just twice for 12 yards in Week 9 against Philadelphia. Mallett will have plenty of time to develop an on-field rapport with Johnson. The team is on its bye and doesn't play again until Week 11 in Cleveland.


Texans WR Andre Johnson held to two catches Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Texans standout wideout Andre Johnson was no standout Sunday against Philadelphia. He established season-lows with just two catches for 12 yards despite seven targets.

The rare dud keeps him at just one touchdown on the season. He will not have a chance to pick up the pace in Week 10 as the Texans are on their bye.


Probables all set to play for Texans against Eagles


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) A significant group of Texans that had been designated as probable have been given the thumbs-up for action Sunday against Philadelphia. They are running backs Alfred Blue (ankle) and Arian Foster (knee), wide receiver Andre Johnson (ankle), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee) and linebackers Whitney Mercilus (shoulder) and Brooks Reed (groin).


Texans RB Foster, WR Andre Johnson probable for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster (knee) and wide receiver Andre Johnson (ankle) were both officially ruled probable as expected for Week 9 against the Philadelphia, according to the Houston Chronicle. Both players were limited participants in practice Friday and were never in danger of missing game action.

Arian Foster, Andre Johnson sit out Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster (knee) and wideout Andre Johnson (ankle) sat out Wednesday's practice, reports the Houston Chronicle. It's basically a rest day for Houston's top offensive players.

Texans WR Andre Johnson has seven catches in Week 8 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson tied a season-high with seven catches during a 30-16 win Week 8 at Tennessee. He finished with 55 receiving yards, was targeted a team-high 12 times and his longest catch went 13 yards.

Johnson still doesn't have a 100-yard game this season and has just one touchdown in eight games. The Texans are back in action Week 9 vs. Philadelphia.


Texans list lengthy injury report for Week 8 clash with Titans


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) The Texans listed a lengthy injury report for Week 8 against the Titans.

Darryl Morris (ankle) and Jeff Tarpinian (knee) were the only two players on the list ruled out for the divisional clash. Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Brooks Reed (groin) and John Simon (ankle) were labeled questionable. Meanwhile, Akeem Dent (wrist), Tim Jamison (groin), Andre Johnson (ankle), Johnathan Joseph (knee), Mike Mohamed (calf) and Jerrell Powe (shoulder) were all deemed probable.


No reason to fear Andre Johnson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Andre Johnson was the less productive of the Texans wide receivers Week 7 at Pittsburgh, but he still tied for the team lead with nine targets and caught five passes for 77 yards. Only once this year has another Texan gotten more targets than him in a game, and it was Arian Foster, not DeAndre Hopkins.

That's an ideal role for a wide receiver in Fantasy, and though it's led to only one touchdown for Johnson this season, he's too promising from week to week for you to consider sitting him. He's 12th in receiving yards, for crying out loud.

So why do Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank him 24th and 32nd, respectively, at wide receiver for Week 8 at Tennessee? You got me. If it was the Lions, I could understand, but the Titans rank 21st against the pass, allowing 247.9 yards per game.

I'm sticking to my guns on this one. Johnson is a must-start in Fantasy.


Andre Johnson salvages night with big fourth quarter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson had one 4-yard reception through three quarters Monday night at Pittsburgh. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick finally looked Johnson's way in the fourth quarter, and the 33-year-old wideout finished with five catches for 77 yards.

In the process, Johnson moved past Steve Largent for 14th place in career receiving yards. Johnson has 14,057 receiving yards.

Johnson shared the team lead with nine targets, his average this season. He'll visit the Titans in Week 8.


Arian Foster, Andre Johnson set for MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Texans running back Arian Foster (groin) and wideout Andre Johnson (ankle) are active as expected for Monday's game in Pittsburgh after being listed as probable.

Jadeveon Clowney questionable on Texans Week 7 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/18/2014) Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is listed as questionable to play in Monday's Week 7 battle with the Steelers after limited in practice for a second straight day Saturday.

Clowney hasn't played since Week 1 while recovering from knee surgery. Linebacker Mike Mohamed (calf) is also questionable to play afer being limited all week. Cornerback Darryl Morris (anke) has been ruled out.

The Texans have a whopping 12 players listed as probable to play Monday, including running back Arian Foster (groin), wide receivers Andre Johnson (ankle) and DeAndre Hopkins (hand), guard Brandon Brooks (illness), center Chris Myers (not injury related), offensive tackle Derek Newton (elbow), defensive ends J.J. Watt (thigh) and Tim Jamison (groin), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee) and linebackers Brian Cushing (knee), Brooks Reed (groin) and Jeff Tarpinian (knee).


Quartet of key Texans limited in Friday practice


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Four key Texans were limited in practice on Friday as the team prepares for its Monday night game against Pittsburgh.

Included were wideout Andre Johnson (ankle), linebakers Brian Cushing (knee) and Jadeveon Clowney (knee) and cornerback Johnathan Joseph (knee).

Clowney has not played since Week 1 and is considered questionable for the game. The other three have yet to miss a game and will likely receive the green light for action.


Close call between Texans wide receivers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) If you look and Jamey Eisenberg's and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 7, you'll see that Texans wide receivers Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins are separated by just two spots for one and one spot for the other. That, folks, is as close as it gets.

And it's easy to see why. The two have gone back and forth in terms of production all season. Lately, Johnson has been the hot hand, catching seven passes for 99 yards and a touchdown compared to Hopkins' one grab for 12 yards Week 6 against Indianapolis, and as you can see, Jamey at least leans his way

But I think it should be more than a lean. I think the distinction between Johnson and Hopkins is great enough that Johnnson is a start at Pittsburgh and Hopkins, at least in standard 12-team leagues, is a sit.

They key is in the targets. Johnson has 54 to Hopkins' 33, and it's been that way from the beginning. Johnson has gotten at least seven targets every week. Hopkins has only once gotten that many.

The matchup isn't favorable enough for a quarterback of Ryan Fitzpatrick's caliber to sustain two wide receivers. The Steelers rank seventh against the pass, allowing 225.8 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.


Texans' Andre Johnson emerges, but loses it late


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson had a strong game Thursday against the Colts.

Johnson hauled in seven passes for 99 yards and a score. He was targeted a team-high 12 times during the contest. It wound up being a bit of a mixed game for Johnson. The Texans offense didn't get started until the second quarter. Johnson had a great first drive, drawing a penatly, hauling in a 13 yard reception and scoring a 4 yard touchdown. His touchdown was a highlight, as Johnson had to navigate around a defender and tap both his feet down before going out of bounds. 

It wasn't all good, though. Johnson nearly played the villain, fumbling with 4:47 left in the game. The play was challenged, but eventually upheld. Johnson had a catch on the final drive, but Ryan Fitzpatrick fumbled on the next play, ending the game. 

Johnson will take on the Steelers Week 7. 


Texans wideout Andre Johnson active for Thursday night


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson is active Week 6 against the Colts.

Johnson came into the game listed as questionable due to an ankle injury. He did not participate in practices during the week, but will give it a go. Johnson has caught 27 balls for 320 yards this season. He has yet to score a touchdown. 


Report: Texans WR Andre Johnson set for Thursday action


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Texans premier wideout Andre Johnson is set to play Thursday night against Indianapolis despite an ankle injury that had him deemed questionable, the Houston Chronicle has reported.

Johnson has missed practice this week leading up to Week 6, but had been deemed a likely participant in the game. He has played in every game this season with 27 catches for 320 yards, but has yet to score a touchdown.


Texans WR Andre Johnson questionable for Week 6 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) An ankle ailment that prevented Texans standout wide receiver Andre Johnson from practicing Monday and Tuesday has him designated as questionable for the Thursday night game against visiting Indianapolis.

Johnson has consistently snagged passes this year with between four and six catches in every game, but he has yet to record a 100-yard performance or score a touchdown.


Steer clear of Texans wideouts


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Though Andre Johnson has long been a dependable option and DeAndre Hopkins looks like a breakout star, you might want to avoid relying on either in Thursday's matchup between the Texans and Colts in Week 6.

Thursday night games have not been terribly kind to wide receivers this season, with Jordy Nelson, Victor Cruz, Randall Cobb and Julio Jones the only ones topping double figures in Fantasy scoring through five games. Wide receivers overall are averaging more than 40 yards fewer per game on Thursday's than overall.

You might want to take caution with the Texans' receiving duo against any matchup on a Thursday, but the Colts have been particularly tough on opposing wide receivers so far. Indianapolis' defense has allowed a league-low 13.0 Fantasy points per game through five games, with just two wide receivers reaching double figures all season.

Hopkins is by no means unworthy of starting this week, but there is at least reason to take pause. And, though we think Johnson can get going before long, it is better to leave him on the bench in favor of better matchups for Week 6.  


Andre Johnson misses practice but is expected to play Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson (ankle) missed practice Tuesday in advance of Thursday's game against the Colts. Houston coach Bill O'Brien predicted Johnson will suit up against Indy, reports the Houston Chronicle.

Andre Johnson misses Monday walkthrough


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson (ankle) did not participate in Monday's walkthrough ahead of Thursday's game against the Colts. He has 27 catches for 320 yards and no touchdowns this season.

Time to sit Andre Johnson?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) Texans receiver Andre Johnson continues to be unproductive for Fantasy owners, reeling in five catches for 58 yards. 

It's his second-lowest yardage total on his third-highest target total of the year -- and he still hasn't scored. He's playing with a little bit of explosion but it's very obvious that he's not the same guy he once was, meaning he's not a must-start. 

We've seen far too many non-obvious receivers struggle on the short week and Johnson might be next in line. Additionally, the Colts pass defense did a great job stepping up against the Ravens in Week 5 and have been solid against receivers for much of the season

Week 6 might be the time to bench Johnson in the event you haven't done so already.
