Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said he would prefer to play with a veteran quarterback next season because of their experience but is open to playing with a rookie quarterback.

But sometimes you can find that young guy that can come in and pick it up right away and go out there and make plays for you," Johnson said.

Texans | Case Keenum impresses

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 10:52:44 -0800

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum impressed in the team's disappointing Week 9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He showed his willingness to attack the defense deep and displayed a nice connection with WR Andre Johnson, tossing him three touchdown passes. Keenum made the right reads, had nice pocket presence and showed a quick release.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum went 20-for-34 for 350 yards and three touchdowns against the Colts. He has shown a very strong arm and is extremely athletic moving around and outside the pocket. He's a decent bye-week filler or second quarterback in two-QB leagues.

Texans | Andre Johnson busts out

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 08:17:06 -0800

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson had nine catches for 229 yards and three touchdowns in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: It was his first three TDs on the season, and nearly one-quarter of his season yardage came in this game. It's a great sign that his shin problems are behind him.

Texans | Andre Johnson probable

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 15:47:19 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (shin) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is listed as probable for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like he will be able to play, but his value will be affected by the team's quarterback situation. Johnson should be considered a low-end No. 2 wide receiver at best this week and could be benched if owners have better options.

Texans | Andre Johnson practices

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 17:24:57 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (shin) was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: More will be known on Johnson's status later in the week. Johnson might be playing without starting QB Matt Schaub (ankle, foot), and the QB situation, coupled with facing a strong Kansas City Chiefs defense, makes him useful only as a low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in most formats.

"But today, I went out there and practiced and I felt like I got my range of motion back and stuff a little bit. It's the best I've felt so far since I've had the injury. I'll be out there."

Texans | Andre Johnson scheduled for MRI

Sun, 22 Sep 2013 21:54:40 -0700

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (shin) is scheduled to have an MRI Monday, Sept. 23, on his bruised shin. He was kicked in the shin in the Week 3 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He attempted to return in the second half after X-rays at halftime came back negative, but he did not remain in the game for long. "I watched him the first play, we threw the ball the first play, and I wanted to see him run," head coach Gary Kubiak said. "I did not think he could run the way he needs to...so we took him out."

Fantasy Tip: Johnson should be fine to play in Week 4, but this is just another reminder that he's very injury-prone. That won't change now that he's on the wrong side of 30. It's tough to keep DeAndre Hopkins out of your starting lineups.

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.
