Texans | Andre Johnson leaves game

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 14:24:27 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (shin) left the Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens in the second half after being kicked in the shin earlier in the game. WRs DeAndre Hopkins, Keshawn Martin and DeVier Posey finished up as the top three wideouts. When he departed the game, he took off his gloves and tossed his helmet. Johnson was also limping.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners know the drill by now. Another game, another nagging injury for Johnson. Check back Wednesday when the team practices to get a better idea on his status going forward. It sounds like he suffered a bad contusion, but he'll likely be re-evaluated just to make certain.

Texans | Keshawn Martin the No. 3

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 13:12:45 -0700

Houston Texans WR Keshawn Martin had two catches for 37 yards in the team's Week 2 win over the Tennessee Titans, and he has played a key role for the team early this year. "He's important. What we're doing right now, he's obviously our three," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "If DeAndre comes out of the game, he plays Z. If Andre comes out of the game, he plays X. He's handling two spots for us as a player. He makes a big play in the game. We've got a lot of confidence in him."

Fantasy Tip: Martin may step into an even bigger role this weekend if Andre Johnson (concussion) is unable to play. Look at Martin as a waiver wire target if Johnson doesn't play in deeper leagues.

Texans | Looking for a young WR to develop

Sun, 07 Jul 2013 08:33:10 -0700

Texans | Need to develop more reliable secondary WR

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 17:59:33 -0700

The Houston Texans want to have more reliable targets outside of WR Andre Johnson in the receiving game. Last season, WR Lestar Jean hauled in 50 percent of his targets for catches, while WR DeVier Posey (Achilles') racked up catches on 43 percent of his targets. WR Keshawn Martin managed to catch just 36 percent of his targets.

Fantasy Tip: Someone will need to step up and replace Kevin Walter, who has since moved on to the Tennessee Titans. He was good for a catch rate of 60 percent of his targets. Jean appears to be the most likely candidate to succeed, as he can be a downfield threat and he had a high catch ratio. Martin also showed glimpses of brilliance, but is still rather raw. Posey is making his way back from a torn Achilles' suffered in January, and his timetable remains uncertain. Right now, only Jean and Martin are worth late-round fliers on Draft Day.

Sun, 19 Aug 2012 22:42:56 -0700

Houston Texans WR DeVier Posey, the team's third-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, has not logged a reception in his first two preseason games.

"The way it kind of worked out last night, the guys that are working with the third group did not get many reps last night," head coach Gary Kubiak said.
