2012 pros and Cons

(+) After last season’s debacle, there’s nowhere to go but up for Andre


(+) Still, he had his second best yards-per-catch last season (14.9 YPC)


(+) Arian Foster is the best RB in the league, which helps open things up for Andre


(+) He's looked like a surefire Hall of Famer at points in his career (though not so much lately)


(–) Turns 31-years old this year and hasn't produced at a high level the past few seasons


(–) Two TDs is garbage – not even worthy of fantasy WR5 territory


(–) Only played in seven games last season – injured for nine


(–) Has missed 12 games over the last two years


(–) Hasn't lived up to the seven-year, $62 million contract he signed in 2010


(–) He still has no other WR to take the double-teams away from him and this year, the Texans are relying on two rookies to do it. Not really a good bet


(–) He's always been perceived as such a stud, but may be the most over-rated fantasy player ever


(–) Has no nickname to speak of…which is boring

2009 Review

andre johnson - i am a texan!


It’s taken a few years for people to realize it, but there is no denying it at this point; Andre Johnson is the best wide receiver in the league.  Period.  Sure, arguments could be made for Larry Fitzgerald, Randy Boss, or even Calvin Johnson when he’s healthy, but none of those players have the combination of speed, size, strength, hands, fearlessness, desire and style that Johnson has.  ‘Dre and QB Matt Schaub brought the Texans as close as they have ever been to the playoffs in 2009; this being done despite being without the services of TE Owen Daniels for half the year and the severely declined play of RB Steve Slaton.  How often can you say that a wide receiver has had that much influence over a team’s success?  It’s rare, as is the exceptional talent that is Andre Johnson.


andre johnson 2009 stats


~ Set career bests in receiving TDs (9), yards/reception (15.5), and yards from scrimmage (1,579)


~ 2009 First-Team All-Pro and made his fourth career Pro Bowl team

2010 Fantasy Outlook







Confucius say, can you be better than the best?  The trend is set, but folks, believe us; it can get even better.  The only area Andre hasn’t fully excelled at throughout his career thus far is touchdowns, but look for him to improve upon that in 2010.  He set his career high in 2009 with 9 TD catches, and over the past three years, he’s had 8, 8, and 9.  2010 looks to be the year he finally breaks into double-digits, if for no other reason than he’s simply too good not to!  Expect another 100+ catch, 1,500+ yard season… but this time, expect 10+ TDs as well.  Go ahead, take pleasure in watching the rest of your league cringe whenever they play against you after you draft ‘Dre as your #1 guy. Plus, we're pretty sure we saw him rob Alex Rodriguez of a homer in centerfield at Minute Maid Park the other day by running up that stupid hill and jumping OVER the wall. Yeah, he's that good.


~ Schaub is right on the cusp of elite status, and this could be the year he vaults into that stratosphere


~ Jacoby Jones is about to break out as a receiver, thus taking a little more pressure off Johnson


~ He wants to re-structure his current contract, and we all know what that means concerning a player’s production level

Injury Report

Green

Missed some games in 2005 & 2007, but he's been good the past 2 years. He played through a lung contusion injury last season, the guy is tough as hell.

Veteran Receiver Andre Johnson Visits Titans

NFL.com

Pyro's take: NFL.com writer, Chris Wesseling reports veteran WR free agent Andre Johnson met with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday. The 35-year-old played for the Colts last season before his release in February.

Fantasy Goo: It makes sense for the Titans to give Johnson a shot to make their roster considering they lack a proven consistent WR option. Andre appeared to lose a lot of speed when he played with the Colts last season, but the Titans don't necessarily need him to produce big time numbers. His leadership in the locker room could benefit the entire offense. If the Titans do end up signing Johnson he still wouldn't have much fantasy value unless he proved that he gained back some of the ability he had before when he played in Houston.

Kevin Bowen considers Andre Johnson a potential cap cut.

AJ

Pyro's take: Bowen on Andre Johnson:

"Johnson’s status for next season is going to be one to watch. He talked after the regular season finale about how he knows the business side of the NFL and the potential impact that could have in his future in Indianapolis. Jim Irsay mentioned to the IndyStar last week how some veterans could be cap causalities in the offseason. Do the Colts feel like they have enough depth at receiver to move on from Johnson? That’s something to at least ponder in the offseason. From an on the field standpoint, Johnson’s production in 2015 was so puzzling. How does a guy catch 85 balls in Houston and haul in just 41 the next season with the Colts? Like Irsay said, the Colts are going to have some decisions to make regarding a few veterans and their future with Indianapolis."

Could be more Chemistry with Matt Hasselbeck than Andrew Luck

Aj

Pyro's take: Hasselbeck is comfortable with Johnson and the two have quickly developed good chemistry. Johnson had six catches for 77 yards and two touchdowns when Hasselbeck started against Houston in Week 5. -- Mike Wells

TY not Expected to Play Week 9

nope

Pyro's take: IT is a tough matchup against Denver, but certainly without Hilton, Moncrief should be expected to get an increase. In deeper leagues, maybe Johnosn, but he is just not reliable for consistancy.

Andre Johnson caught 6-of-7 targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns

AJ

Pyro's take: Andre Johnson needed to go out and erase all doubters that he needed to retire instead of moving on to the Colts. Can't really doubt them though. Donte Moncrief was moving in the fast lane, while Johnson looked as though he wanted to be in the drive-thru lane.

He will hope to continue his dominance against New England next week, the Colts are going to need him for certain.

Hilton has a bruised bone

TH

Pyro's take: Pro Football Talk reported an MRI confirmed T.Y. Hilton is dealing with a bruised knee.

A source told PFT Hilton is "probably day to day." Even though Hilton could still miss week two, so monitor his progress this week.

If Hilton cannot go, look for Andre Johnson to resume the number one receiver role while Donte Moncrief takes over at the two hole. Moncrief was one of the few Colts that shined against the tough Buffalo Bills defense.

Old but Still GIant

Andre Johnson just needed a little Colts in his life to up his playing skills. As usual he torched the Colts. He caught 7 receptions for 99 yards and one touchdown. The first score for him this season. The bad news is that he fumbled away the game, on the second-to-last drive of the game.

Pyro's take: Andre Johnson is clearly a PPR reciever only. He has never caught 10 touchdowns in a season, but has caught many 100+ receptions. He is practically useless in standard leagues because of this. Keep him locked in as a flex or third receiver in your PPR leagues.

Ankle Problems

Due to it being a Thursday game, Andre Johnson may not be able to play because of his ankle injury and time to rest it. He has not participated in any of the team's walk-through, as Houston did not practice.

Pyro's take: Andre Johnson has struggled thus far, as his receptions are low and he has not caught a touchdown through the first five weeks. For instance, this time last season he had 10 more receptions and 77 more yards. He was also targeted 14 more times.

Even though Johnson's ankle may very well be a culprit to his declining stats, it is also maybe his age. Sometimes players get banged up so bad, that there is no fixing the dent in the fender. Even if he does play, he has a tough match-up against the Colts defensive backs, and should only get the start, if your looking at him as a bye-week filler.

Johnson in camp with the Texans

The normally soft-spoken Andre Johnson wanted to be heard and the Texans listened.

“I just think when you’ve been through so much with an organization, and I’ve been here going on 12 years now, there has been a lot of things that have happened,” Johnson said on Friday from NRG Stadium. “I’ve never really just voiced opinion on it, but I think at times there comes a time where when you don’t agree with something things that need to be said. That is pretty much what it was.”

Johnson reported for the start of training camp on Friday after missing OTAs and minicamp this offseason.

(After his first day at camp Johnson had this to say)

“So far, the first day install I picked up pretty well," Johnson said. "I went out there and wasn’t really thinking a lot. I got with Fitz (Ryan Fitzgerald) after everything last night and me and him went over some stuff. Everybody has been very helpful with me picking up everything. It’s just fun to be back out here and be with my teammates and getting back to football.”

Despite all the rumors circulating around a possible holdout, the two-time All-Pro did not consider sitting out for the year and said the underlying issue was never about the Texans draft strategy or their quarterback situation as many speculated.

Pyro's take: Andre just wanted to make sure his voice was heard this off-season, and it has been. Now he needs to focus on becoming a major part of Bill O'Brien's offense.

Johnson is still the best receiver on the Texans, and at 33 years old has yet to show signs of slowing down. He should quickly become the favorite target of Ryan Fitzpatrick, and once again see a lot of targets in 2014.

Andre and the Raiders?

Rumor mill central has the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans in trade talks about Andre Johnson. It's no secret that Johnson wants out of Houston, and the Raiders have become an option for him. The main reason is that former quarterback Matt Schaub is the signal caller in Oakland, and the Schaub to Johnson tandem has been going strong since 2007.

Other reasons why Andre Johnson coming to Oakland makes sense. First, the Texans run a similar type of offense as the Raiders, and Oakland has a much better offensive line. Second, from Houston's perspective they are looking to rebuild as they have on defense, and cycling Johnson through could lead to an influx of youth, such as, getting Denarius Moore. Third, the Raiders would love to team Matt Schaub with Andre Johnson, and have someone like Johnson, lead the wide receiving corps.

Johnson stated that “I just look at my career. … I’ve only been to the playoffs twice. I think we’ve only had three winning seasons. I don’t think any player wants to experience that. I think over time it can become very frustrating. And this offseason has been very frustrating for me; beginning of the offseason, I should say. That’s just kind of where I’m at right now.”

Pyro's take: Andre Johnson would make a great addition to the Oakland Raiders, and they would have no problem making the offense work around him. As of right now, its only speculation, but Andre would make the silver and black look even more flashier and intimidating.

Andre Johnson not happy with rebuild

Andre Johnson is not on board with another Texans rebuild.

The veteran wide receiver said Tuesday he’s highly frustrated with the state of a franchise that went 2-14 last season. Johnson doesn’t plan to attend OTAs or an upcoming mandatory camp and is uncertain whether he wants to remain a Texan this year.

“Is this still the place for me?” Johnson asked following a media event, in which he presented the Houston Women’s Center with a $30,000 check.

Johnson missed last week’s first voluntary workout with new Texans coach Bill O’Brien.

The veteran addressed the situation for the first time Tuesday.

Johnson, 32, is entering his 12th season with the Texans. The No. 3 overall pick of the 2003 NFL draft is the lone remaining athlete from the franchise’s expansion era. He’s been through Dom Capers, David Carr, Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub. After watching the Texans fall apart in 2013, posting the league’s worst record, the seven-time Pro Bowler said he and the only team he’s ever played for are clearly at different stages.

“Nobody’s been here as long as I have. You just kind of look at things; I’ve been thinking about things this offseason,” Johnson said. “And I just kind of wonder sometimes, ‘Is this still the place for me?’ ”

Johnson leads the Texans in all-time receptions (927), receiving yards (12,261) and receiving touchdowns (61).

He’s been frustrated with the Texans before. But this is the first time in recent years Johnson has allowed his feelings to boil over, in essence calling out the Texans for another slow rebuild. In the past, Johnson’s frustration was quieted before his feelings became public.

Pyro's take: Johnson is closing in on the twilight of his career, and he can't afford to wait through another rebuild. The Texans were so close to getting to a Super Bowl in the last few years, that the veteran is frustrated with the idea of starting over.

The Texans still need Johnson, and unfortunately trading him will not necessarily bring them enough back to make this a viable option. This one could lead to a hold out.

Andre Johnson explodes on Sunday Night

Thanks to Case Keenum, Andre Johnson enjoyed his first three-touchdown game in 11 NFL seasons and his third with two touchdowns in a quarter.

He had 190 yards by halftime Sunday, the fifth most in any game and the most productive half of his career. He finished with 229 yards.

Pyro's take: Johnson had the half of his lifetime on Sunday, and turned the tide in many fantasy games. It is hard to believe, but this is the first time in Johnson's career that he had 3 touchdowns in a game. Wait, he has never 10 touchdowns in a season, I could not believe what I was seeing.

The Colts seemed to not be covering AJ for the entire first half, as he was wide open behind the defense on an 62-yard and 41-yard touchdown passes. Johnson could continue to have some big games down the stretch here, as he should see 10+ targets a game from Case Keenum.

Andre Johnson expects to start this week

Texans coach Gary Kubiak met with reporters after practice today and said that receivers Andre Johnson (leg) and Keshawn Martin (shoulder) had returned to practice and would be game-time decisions for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.

When informed that Johnson had already told the media that he would start against the Rams, Kubiak said, “Good? I like that.”

“I feel better this week than last week,” Johnson said.

Pyro's take: Johnson has been dealing with nagging injuries all season, which has caused him to be an inconsistent play thus far. If he plays you are going to start him, but it would be nice if AJ could find the endzone for the first time this season.

Andre Johnson expected to start

All week, the Texans have been calling wide receiver Andre Johnson a game-time decision because of his shin injury but things have taken a positive turn with the game against the Seahawks a couple of days away.

Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com reports that coach Gary Kubiak said Friday that Johnson had a strong practice and that he expects to have the wideout in the starting lineup.

Pyro's take: Johnson should be on the field Sunday and not only is that good news for AJ owners, but it is also good news for DeAndre Hopkins. Johnson will be sure to see a lot of targets, but he will also draw a lot of double teams, which could open up Hopkins for more targets. Either way this will be a tough week for these receivers as they will face the Seahawks who are only giving up 12.7 points per weeks to wide receivers, which is stoutest in the league.

Andre Johnson injured again

Andre Johnson left Sunday's loss at Baltimore twice because of a shin injury.

“He has a bad shin bruise," head coach Gary Kubiak said after the game. "The X-ray they took at halftime was ok."

After taking part in a few plays during the third quarter, Johnson left the game again.

"I watched him the first play, we threw the ball the first play and I wanted to see him run," Kubiak said. "I did not think he could run the way he needs to, to play so we took him out.”

Johnson said he had a "pretty bad bruise" on the shin. He was unsure of his availability for Week 4's home matchup with the Seahawks.

"I don't know," Johnson said. "I don't know what's going to happen with it. Right now, I plan on planning. I have an MRI set up in the morning."

On the day, Johnson caught five passes for 36 yards.

Pyro's take: This may be a reoccurring theme this year for Johnson who suffered a concussion in week 2. This sometimes just happens to older players, and all those years and games lead to the body breaking down and not recovering like it used to. Johnson is going to be listed as questionable for his week 4 match-up with the Seahawks, which is a tough game to play while injured.

DeAndre Hopkins was not able to pick up the slack for losing AJ this week, as he finished the game with 6 catches for 60 yards. Hopkins needs Johnson out there to be more successful and not face double teams.

Andre Johnson "should be ready to go"

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that Kubiak said that wide receiver Andre Johnson “should be ready to go” in time for Sunday’s game against the Ravens. Johnson suffered a concussion late in last weekend’s overtime win against the Titans

Pyro's take: Johnson is a must start if healthy. AJ has been a target machine with 29 through 2 weeks. The Texans needs to have a healthy #80 in order to get the most out their offense. A healthy Andre also helps the fantasy value of DeAndre Hopkins, who needs him to draw attention and give him one on one match-ups.

Andre Johnson dealing with a concussion

Andre Johnson left the game in the fourth quarter, and head coach Gary Kubiak said the wide receiver was "being evaluated" for a concussion.

"He's being evaluated as we speak," Kubiak said after the Texans' overtime victory at Reliant Stadium over the Titans. "I have no diagnosis yet."

Johnson caught a 21-yard pass from Matt Schaub up the right sideline, and was hit by Titans' safety Bernard Pollard as he was coming down with the ball. He was able to run off the field a few moments later, and then jogged into the locker room without his helmet a few plays later.

Tight end Owen Daniels had encouraging words about Johnson's status.

"I talked to him and he said he was all right," Daniels said. "He wanted to go back in, but protocol is that you can't at that point."

Johnson finished with 76 yards receiving on a game-high eight catches.

Pyro's take: This was a tough break for Johnson who was having another nice game, but it was a real break for the rookie DeAndre Hopkins, who took advantage and finished the game with 7 catches for 117 yards and the game winning touchdown. Although, the catch Hopkins made before the touchdown was even more impressive. Johnson will will have to pass the baseline tests this week, but Hopkins should start stealing some of Johnson's targets when he does return.

Andre active and ready to carve up the Bills

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson (bruised lung) has been declared active and will make the start against the Bills on Sunday.

Pyro's take: Get 'Dre back into your fantasy football lineup immediately if you took him out earlier in the week.

Andre Johnson "looked great. He's ready to go"

Andre Johnson practiced on Friday, and his coach said he looks ready. Andre seems to like how he feels to:

“I feel good,” Johnson said. “Like I said, I wasn't in any pain, and I'm still not in any pain. My breathing is fine when I'm out there running. I'm ready to go get this scan to see if they see stuff. Hopefully, there's nothing bad when they look at the scan.”

Pyro's take: I don't know what a lung bruise even is, but if Andre is practicing and saying he feels good, he's going to play. I would take a one lunged Andre Johnson over a three lunged 95% of the rest of the receivers in the game today.

Keep him in your lineup.

Andre Johnson will play in Week 8

Texans coach Gary Kubiak stated today that barring any setbacks, wide receiver Andre Johnson will play on Sunday. "Andre looked great. He's ready to go," said Kubiak.

Pyro's take: Andre promised he would go, so there really wasn't much of a question here. Make sure you get the all-fantasy-world receiver back into your lineup if you had him out.
