Texans | Opinion: Andre Johnson won't be traded

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 06:52:18 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson "is not going to be traded," in the opinion to John McClain. Houston wants to avoid giving Johnson the $1 million workout bonus that he passed up by not participating in offseason activities or guarantee his 2015 salary. They don't want to create a precedent that can be manipulated by DE J.J. Watt's agent in the future. McClain said that "Any 33-year-old ... anybody doesn't walk away from" the $10 million that Houston owes Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: The financial clarity in this situation makes it likelier that Johnson will report, but you can't guarantee anything until there's a concrete resolution. Johnson remains at least a serviceable WR2 no matter where he plays this year.

Texans | Defense to consist of moving parts

Wed, 28 May 2014 09:45:55 -0700

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel plans to be flexible with his defense and move guys around to create different looks for the opponent this year in his 3-4 defense. "You have to be flexible and be able to adapt to what your players can do, and you have to be able to adapt to what your opponent's doing," Crennel said. "It changes all the time." DE J.J. Watt could line up in a three-point stance or he might stand up. LB Jadeveon Clowney can stand in the base defense and drop in passing situations. LB Brooks Reed can play inside and outside and LB Whitney Mercilus can switch sides.

Texans | Jadeveon Clowney selected first overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 17:16:07 -0700

The Houston Texans selected South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: They're not concerned with all the negatives. They'll squeeze him into this defense to try pairing him with J.J. Watt. Houston's fantasy defense is still backup material but, if all goes right, could be playable during the year. In IDPs, Clowney is a middle- to late-rounds pick with a lot of downside.
