Andre Johnson said he's not thinking about retiring anytime soon.
Johnson will turn 33 years old in July, but continues to play at an elite level. Despite suffering through poor quarterback play last season, he ranked third in catches (109), seventh in yards (1407), sixth in catches of 20+ yards (20) and second in catches for a first down (69). "Everybody knows that day when it's over," he said. "When that day comes, I'll have no problem stepping away. But right now I feel fine. I feel like I still have a few more years left in me." Johnson is under contract through the 2016 season. Feb 19 - 8:29 AM

Andre Johnson caught six passes for 49 yards in Week 17 against the Titans.

Johnson was targeted a team-high nine times and was stopped at the two-yard line on one catch. He appeared in all 16 games for the second season in a row and posted his seventh 1,000-yard receiving season. Johnson finishes with 109 catches for 1,407 yards and five touchdowns. He's never produced many touchdowns with Matt Schaub under center. Johnson will have a new quarterback throwing to him in 2014. It will likely be a rookie via the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Johnson will turn 33 years old in the summer but has shown no signs of slowing down. He remains a WR1 for fantasy purposes.

Andre Johnson has tied the NFL record with five 100-catch seasons.

Wes Welker is the only other player to achieve the feat. Jerry Rice had four 100-catch seasons. Johnson has managed to post 103 catches this year despite bottom-barrel quarterback play out of Matt Schaub and Case Keenum. He's gotten to the 100-catch milestone in each of the last five years he's played in every game. Johnson will turn 33 years old in July, but he's showing no signs of slowing down.

Andre Johnson was held to 63 yards on four receptions in the Texans' Week 16 loss to the Broncos.

Johnson turned in a sub-par performance that could've been much bigger had he not dropped a surefire touchdown streaking wide open through the end zone. Johnson is still up to 103 receptions in a dominant overall 2013 campaign. The Texans finish their lost season against the Titans in Week 17.

Andre Johnson returned to Texans practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Wednesday was just a rest day for the veteran wideout. Even with Matt Schaub back under center, Johnson is a WR1 for the fantasy Super Bowl.

Andre Johnson (wrist) did not practice Wednesday.

We didn't notice Johnson suffer any injuries last week against the Colts, and none of the Texans' beat writers have expressed any concern regarding his Week 16 status. Johnson will be a low-end WR1 this week versus Denver.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 05:55:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught four passes for 18 yards in Houston's Week 15 loss to the Colts.

Johnson never stood a chance on a day where Case Keenum barely resembled an NFL quarterback. Johnson was the intended target on each of Keenum's woefully under-thrown interceptions. It was a disastrous day for Johnson's fantasy owners, but he's been putting up with Keenum's wildly inconsistent play for weeks. He'll remain a low-end WR1 for Week 16 against the Broncos' burnable secondary.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 05:46:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught 13 passes for 154 yards in Houston's Week 14 loss to Jacksonville.

The 13 catches were a season high for Johnson, who tied Jerry Rice for the most 10-catch, 150-yard performances of all time (10). The big night came even as the Texans were compelled to bench Case Keenum for Matt Schaub midway through the third quarter. Johnson drew a mammoth 21 targets, getting open nearly at will for both quarterbacks. Now with 95 catches for 1,277 yards and five touchdowns, Johnson has been a bright spot in an otherwise lost season in Houston. He'll do battle with Indy's Vontae Davis in Week 15.

Andre Johnson caught eight passes for 121 yards in Houston's Week 13 loss to the Patriots.

With the Pats inexplicably failing to blitz Case Keenum, Houston's quarterback and No. 1 receiver got their connection working again. New England also opted not to shadow Johnson with Aqib Talib, leaving him literally wide open more than once. Johnson would have had an even bigger day if not for two drops. With 75 percent of the season now in the books, the future Hall-of-Famer is on pace for 109 catches, 1,497 yards and seven touchdowns.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 05:34:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught two passes for 36 yards in Houston's Week 12 loss to the Jaguars.

Case Keenum targeted Johnson only six times, but nearly got him killed with poor throws over the middle more than once. Keenum struggled in the face of the Jaguars' relentless pressure, and got off poor passes even when he had time to throw. Today was just the second time in five games that Johnson was held below 88 yards receiving. He'll be on the WR1 borderline in Week 13 against the Patriots.

When asked if he was happy playing for the Texans following Sunday's loss, Andre Johnson said, "I'm under contract, so I have to play my contract out."

Johnson was clearly frustrated on Sunday as he got into a sideline spat with Matt Schaub following the final play. In the locker room, he admitted that he "messed up" the route and said he's fine with Schaub now. As for his contract, Johnson is not due to hit free agency until 2017. He continues to play at a truly elite level at age 32 and deserves better than another rebuilding job, but we wouldn't expect the Texans to give up hope. Johnson is owed an affordable $6.5 million in 2014 base salary. They wouldn't get equal value in a trade.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 08:19:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught 10 passes for 116 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Raiders.

Johnson racked up 17 targets from the Texans' two-headed quarterback monster, but he was none too pleased after a goal-line miscommunication. He had serious and heated words with Matt Schaub on the sideline as time expired. Regardless, Johnson is going to produce no matter who is under center -- especially against the Jags in Week 12. Over the last three weeks, he's averaging 8.0 catches for 127.3 yards and has scored five times.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 05:26:00 PM

Andre Johnson caught five balls for 37 yards and two touchdowns in the Texans' Week 10 loss to the Cardinals.

He beat Patrick Peterson on both scores, tight-roping the side of the end zone. Johnson's scoring has been rejuvenated by the insertion of Case Keenum, whom unlike Matt Schaub is willing to throw to Johnson even when he appears "covered." Johnson is an every-week fantasy WR1. Keep trotting him out there when the Texans face the leaky Raiders' pass defense in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 07:52:00 PM

Andre Johnson had nine catches for 229 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 9 loss to the Colts.

Johnson had been held out of the end-zone for seven straight games before going off for three touchdowns and 190 yards in the first half. He was targeted 13 times by Case Keenum and was able to get open deep on two of his touchdowns. It was a much needed break out for Johnson, who had been limited to the short passing game under Matt Schaub. Johnson is now on pace for 114 receptions, 1,626 yards, and six touchdowns. He's locked in as a WR1 for Week 10 against the Cardinals.
Mon, Nov 4, 2013 12:14:00 AM

Andre Johnson caught four passes for 89 yards in Houston's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs.

A scrambling Case Keenum found Johnson for gains of 26 and 42 yards. The 42-yarder came on a throw that went sideline-to-sideline. Heading into the Texans' bye week, Johnson is averaging 6.9 catches for 97.3 yards. He showed good chemistry with Keenum this afternoon, but will remain just a mid-range WR2 until Keenum proves to be competent beyond one game. That's if Keenum keeps the job at all, of course.
