Andre Johnson caught 1-of-2 targets for 13 yards in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.
A pre-game report indicated Johnson would have a "bigger role" with fellow grandpa Matt Hasselbeck under center. That didn't happen. Aside from a Week 5 Thursday night game against the Titans (6-77-2), Johnson has been fantasy irrelevant as a Colt. Nov 22 - 5:48 PM

ESPN’s Mike Wells expects Andre Johnson to have a bigger role with Matt Hasselbeck as the starter.

Johnson posted a 9/112/2 line in Hasselbeck's two starts. He’s managed eight catches for 125 yards since. Johnson should see his targets increase with Hasselbeck, but isn’t more than a WR4.

Andre Johnson said he has no problem with his offensive role.

"Anybody would like to go out and catch six, seven balls a game, but that’s not what it is," Johnson said. "It’s different for me, but I don’t have a problem with it." Johnson has surprised with two big games in the last five, but he was held without a catch last week and has more games with zero yards than 45. He has been droppable for several weeks.

Andre Johnson failed to secure any of his three targets Week 9 against the Broncos.

Johnson predictably fell back to earth after hanging a 4-81-1 line on the Panthers last week. Johnson dropped what would have been a first down in the third quarter and was invisible most of the day. Johnson has more games with zero yards than 45 this season. He does not need to be owned anywhere.
Nov 8 - 7:49 PM

Andre Johnson caught 4-of-8 targets for 81 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 8 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

Johnson was mostly quiet before catching an 18-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to kick off the Colts' comeback attempt that saw them score 20 unanswered points. The veteran beat CB Bene Benwikere on the play. After eight games with his new team, Johnson is on pace to catch 48 passes for 576 yards and six touchdowns as the Colts' No. 3 receiver. If the Colts offense can turn it on over the second half, Johnson could become a WR3. But for now, he's a WR4, and one that's not worth starting in a devastating matchup with the Broncos in Week 9.
Nov 3 - 1:00 AM

Andre Johnson caught 4-of-4 targets for 44 yards in Indy's Week 7 loss to the Saints.

The yards were Johnson's second most of the season. Johnson has finally started making an impact for the Colts' offense over the past three weeks, but it isn't translating to fantasy value. At best, he's a low-end WR4. He'll be off the radar against the Panthers in Week 8.
Oct 25 - 6:22 PM

Andre Johnson caught 3-of-6 targets for 35 yards in the Colts' Sunday night Week 6 loss to New England.

Johnson played behind Donte Moncrief in base sets and was the clear No. 3 option. Outside of last week’s two-touchdown outburst against his former team, he's been held under 40 yards in every game. Johnson is a low-end WR3 for Week 7.
Oct 19 - 1:03 AM

Andre Johnson caught 6-of-7 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns in Indy's Week 5 win over the Texans.

In what will surely be billed as a #RevengeGame on Twitter, Johnson more than doubled his 2015 output against his former club. He showed much more life than he did in Indy's first four games, and spent a ton of time in two-receiver sets with T.Y. Hilton. He was still out-snapped by Donte Moncrief (per Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke), but was clearly a focal point of the game plan. Perhaps it had something to do with his return to Houston, but teams are in the business of winning games, not fueling revenge narratives. Johnson was wide open on his first score, a four-yard play fake. For his second, he dove to catch a slant at the goal line, shuffling into the end zone on his glute before he could be touched down. We still prefer Moncrief going forward — he's outplayed Johnson in 4-of-5 games — but perhaps Johnson has some WR4 juice left, after all.
Oct 9 - 12:04 AM

Andre Johnson was held without a catch in Week 4 against the Jaguars.

He was targeted two times. It's the second straight week Johnson has been held catchless. The Colts continued to phase Johnson out of the offense, playing him behind Donte Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton in two-wide sets. Johnson has just seven catches for 51 scoreless yards through four weeks.
Oct 4 - 6:13 PM

Colts OC Pep Hamilton believes he needs to scheme Andre Johnson more targets.

It's an interesting strategy, as Johnson drew 17 looks through Weeks 1 and 2 before the ball wasn't sent his way against the Titans. Indy, of course, lost its first two games before edging Tennessee. Anyone who has watched the Colts offense this season is unlikely to think the issue is Johnson getting the ball too little. Johnson is well off the WR3 radar for the time being.
Oct 1 - 4:13 PM

Colts WR Andre Johnson said the "time will come" when he is a bigger part of the offense.

"A lot of people don’t realize how hard that is, to try to build being your first time in a new place," Johnson said. Andrew Luck and Chuck Pagano said similar things about the situation, but the getting comfortable narrative leaves out the fact that Johnson's role in the offense is going the other way. His snap percentage and targets have decreased in every game, and he did not manage a catch Week 3 against the Titans though he did have a big gain called back by a penalty. Perhaps a matchup at home with the Jags will help Johnson get comfortable in the offense, but he is a risky WR4 at best for the matchup.

Andrew Luck has a 7.4 QB rating when targeting Andre Johnson.

Luck has targeted Johnson 18 times, completing a mere seven passes. Luck has been picked three times looking the future Hall-of-Famer's way. Johnson got out-snapped 57-41 by Donte Moncrief in Week 3. The Colts are seeing the same thing as everybody else. Johnson just might not have it anymore.
Sep 29 - 7:16 PM

Andre Johnson did not catch his lone target Week 3 against the Titans.

Johnson had a long catch down the sidelined called back by one of the Colts' many holding calls, but he was almost invisible the rest of the day. Johnson simply cannot separate anymore, and he appears to have fallen behind Donte Moncrief in the pecking order. Johnson's theoretical upside in this offense is enough to keep him on rosters, but he should not be starting in standard leagues next week against the Jaguars.
Sep 27 - 5:34 PM

Andre Johnson caught 3-of-7 targets for 27 yards in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Jets on Monday night.

The 34-year-old's separation skills appear to have completely evaporated upon his arrival in Indianapolis. His biggest "gain" of the night was drawing a personal foul penalty on CB Buster Skrine on the Colts' opening drive. Through two weeks, Johnson has caught just 7-of-17 targets for 51 yards. It's looking more like Donte Moncrief and T.Y. Hilton will be the biggest playmakers for the Colts at receiver, leaving Johnson as a middling WR3 in Week 3 at Tennessee.
Sep 22 - 12:11 AM

Andre Johnson caught just 4-of-10 targets for 24 yards in Indy's Week 1 loss to the Bills.

It was a concerningly-bad performance from Indy's 34-year-old free agent signing. Johnson struggled to separate, and committed a horrendous drop on a would-be two-point conversion. He was the smothered intended target on Andrew Luck's second interception. It was a rainy day in Buffalo, but Johnson didn't have much spring in his step. Now with T.Y. Hilton week to week with a knee injury, Johnson will be even more under the microscope in Week 2, where he could draw shadow coverage from Darrelle Revis. Johnson will be a middle-of-the-road WR3 for that matchup.
