Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson was questionable heading into the team's Thursday night tilt last week, and he still put up his best game of the season (seven catches, 99 yards and a TD). He'll be fine for Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which is another fine matchup. Consider clicking him for your FantasyScore lineup at $6,900 (13.8% of cap).

Texans | Breakout game for Andre Johnson

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 21:15:58 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson caught seven passes for 99 yards and scored his first touchdown of the year Thursday, Oct. 9. His seven catches and 99 yards were both season highs.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson also had a crucial fumble, but he finally found the end zone and almost reached 100 yards. Still, it's tough to expect this type of production on a regular basis with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center, and Johnson should only be considered at FantasyScore when the Texans have friendly matchups.

Texans | Milestone for Andre Johnson

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 18:50:25 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson reached 13,000 career receiving yards in the second quarter of the team's Week 6 game Thursday, Oct. 9. He is the 15th receiver in NFL history to reach the mark, and Jerry Rice is the only player to reach the total faster than Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is one of the most accomplished receivers in the league, but his value has been limited this season because of Houston's run-heavy approach and the limitations of starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Texans | Andre Johnson sits out

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 18:09:51 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) missed practice Monday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has played in every game for Houston this season, but the quarterback situation has taken a toll on his numbers. He has yet to top 100 yards in a game, and he is still looking for his first touchdown. Johnson's lack of upside makes him a poor play at FantasyScore.

Texans | Andre Johnson reaches 950 grabs

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 20:53:33 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson posted five receptions for 58 yards in the Week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He hauled in his 950th career reception, making him the second-fastest to 950 catches. He will have to wait at least another week to be second-fastest to 13,000 yards. He has two more games to beat former Indianapolis Colts WR Marvin Harrison's mark of 162 games. Former San Francisco 49ers WR Jerry Rice did it in 154.

Texans | Andre Johnson might not play?

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 13:40:53 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Friday, Oct. 3, and is questionable for Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys. He may have aggravated his injury during the week.

Fantasy Tip: Well then. That makes things a bit interesting. Johnson is now more of a risk, but you can check back Sunday morning to make sure he's playing. DeAndre Hopkins ($6,600; 13.2% of cap) could eat up the Cowboys defense if Johnson is limited or doesn't play.

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson finished with a team-high 71 receiving yards on six catches, and he was targeted seven times. Fantasy owners know the drill, as he is an injury risk, but a must-start when healthy.

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:32:17 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has showed no signs of rust from his time away from the team this offseason. Johnson had an impressive practice during joint workouts with the Denver Broncos Wednesday, Aug. 20. "He's a big part of what we're doing here," head coach Bill O'Brien said.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson will be a top-tier fantasy receiver despite the fact he has either Ryan Fitzpatrick or Case Keenum throwing him passes, not exactly a who's who of Pro Bowl quarterbacks.

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said, "That's the plan," when asked if he wants to finish his career with the team. He feels confident with the direction of the team after meeting with the front office. Johnson ended his holdout this week.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old is locked in as a mid- to low-range WR2, with stronger cred in PPR leagues, even with the uncertainty at quarterback. His future value is murky, though, with his age and the club's offensive changes.

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 09:40:19 -0700

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster said WR Andre Johnson, who reportedly has asked for a trade this offseason, is an embodiment of the city of Houston, and he has more star power than the city's younger sports standouts. "He is Houston," Foster said. "I remember when I had my little run where I had like two back-to-back great seasons. I felt like this city loves me, they love me here. Everywhere I go, this is still Dre's city. I don't care if James Harden is walking around, Dwight Howard, whatever. This is Andre Johnson's city. He is Houston. That's what it means more than anything. He's been a staple here for so long."

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.
