Andre Johnson secured just 3-of-12 targets for 36 yards in the Texans' Week 12 loss to the Bengals.
Johnson's wildly ineffective 2014 campaign continued as Ryan Mallett peppered him with errant balls. At this stage of his career, Johnson lacks the explosiveness to his game he once used to "go get" those bad throws. Johnson will return to the WR3 fringe when the Texans take on the Titans in Week 13. Nov 23 - 5:20 PM

Date:

Andre Johnson caught 7-of-9 targets for 68 yards in the Texans' Week 11 win over the Browns.

Ryan Mallett breathed some life into Johnson after Ryan Fitzpatrick held him back for the first half of the season. Mallett showed a willingness to target Johnson even when he was "covered," a good sign for the 33-year-old's fantasy outlook. Johnson was shadowed by Joe Haden throughout this game, regardless of where he lined up. Johnson is back in the mix as an every-week WR3 entering a Week 12 date with the Bengals.
Nov 16 - 5:32 PM

Andre Johnson caught two passes for 12 yards in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

Johnson oddly didn't see his first target until there was roughly six minutes left in the second quarter. He finished with seven targets -- including one overthrown deep ball in which he was open -- but surprisingly struggled for effectiveness against the Eagles' sub-par corner duo. Johnson will be a weak WR2 only when the Texans come out of their bye against the Browns. He has zero 100-yard games and one touchdown through nine weeks.
Nov 2 - 6:01 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Johnson is a legitimate WR1 against the Eagles' inconsistent secondary.
Oct 31 - 3:53 PM

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

Johnson was never in any danger of missing Sunday's game against the Eagles. With six teams on bye for Week 9, Johnson is a WR1.
Oct 30 - 4:40 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

The Texans are limiting Johnson's reps for rest purposes. He didn't suffer any setbacks last week and should be fine for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Oct 29 - 4:43 PM

Andre Johnson caught seven passes for 55 yards in the Texans' Week 8 win over the Titans.

Johnson saw a team-high dozen targets. He was followed by Titans top CB Jason McCourty for much of the afternoon, leaving DeAndre Hopkins to work on sophomore Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Johnson continues to gobble up targets, as does Hopkins, making both weekly fantasy starters. Johnson will be a solid high-end WR2 next week against the Eagles. He'd be much higher if he could find the end zone.
Oct 26 - 5:44 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 8.

Johnson practiced in full Friday after being limited early in the week. He'll continue to play through his ankle injury. Johnson is a mid-range WR2 for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Oct 24 - 6:19 PM

Andre Johnson (ankle) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Johnson doesn't need full practices at this stage of his career. He's a solid WR2 for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Oct 23 - 5:37 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick admitted he "didn't get it to Andre [Johnson] nearly enough early" in Monday's loss to the Steelers.

Johnson finished with 5-77-0 on nine targets, but had just one catch for four yards through the first three quarters. After the game, coach Bill O'Brien said that Johnson was open throughout. It sounds like we have a bit of a squeaky wheel getting greased situation heading into this week's game against the Titans.

The Texans are limiting Johnson's reps coming off Monday night's loss. He'll remain a WR2 for Week 8 against the Titans.
Oct 22 - 6:22 PM

Andre Johnson caught five passes for 77 yards in the Texans' Week 7 loss to the Steelers on Monday night.

Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins each saw a team-high nine targets. There was nothing special about Johnson's night. His biggest play was a 24-yard grab on a deep in route in front of the safeties. Johnson has just one touchdown on the season. He could have had another on Monday if Ryan Fitzpatrick would have hit him in stride on a corner route in the end zone. But Fitzpatrick overshot Johnson, who had a step on the defensive back. Johnson remains a WR2 thanks to volume. He and the Texans travel to Tennessee in Week 8.
Oct 21 - 12:25 AM
