10/26/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson totaled 12 targets during Week 8.
Insight: He caught seven of them for 55 yards, but owners would like him to score some more touchdowns, as he has only one in 2014.
 
10/26/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (ankle) is active after being limited in practice all week.
Insight: No surprise here. Owners roll with Johnson, as you normally would.
 
10/21/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson caught five balls for 77 yards.
Insight: Johnson is still the guy Ryan Fitzpatrick looks for first, but defenses key on him too and he's not quite as good as in past seasons.
 
10/17/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (anke) has been limited in practices all week.
Insight: He is still expected to play, and should be considered a WR2 for Week 7.
 
10/10/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: There were questions about Texans receiver Andre Johnson health heading into Thursday's game, but Johnson answered then with a solid game.
Insight: Johnson caught seven of 12 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown, but a costly fumble in the fourth quarter cost his team a chance at a comeback win.
 
10/9/2014 7:32:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson is active for Week 6 against the Colts.
Insight: Johnson hasn't had a very good season as DeAndre Hopkins has become the No. 1 receiver option in Houston, but if you so desire to play Johnson, he will be on the field Thursday.
 
10/5/2014 11:24:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson looks fine in warmups and is expected to play, according to NFL Network's Steve Wyche.
Insight: Johnson has 22 catches for 262 yards this season, but hasn't produced a 100-yeard game or a touchdown. DeAndre Hopkins is becoming the Texans' big-play guy and Johnson is a WR2 at best.
 
9/28/2014 5:10:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson produces solid game.
Insight: He just keeps doing what he does. Johnson had six catches for 71 yards, on seven targets. He has yet to find the end zone in 2014, but that should come soon. Consider Johnson a WR2.
 
8/20/2014 9:07:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) has shown no signs of rust so far, according to cbssports.com.
Insight: Johnson sat out OTAs and minicamp because he wanted to be traded and he missed the early portion of training camp with a hamstring injury. We have confidence in his ability to build a rapport with new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and learn Bill O'Brien's offensive scheme quickly. He had 109 catches, 1,407 yards and five touchdowns on 181 targets last season despite having to catch passes from Matt Schaub and Case Keenum.
 
8/13/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, according to Dave Zangaro of csnhouston.com. He's questionable for the team's second preseason contest.
Insight: Johnson pulled his right hamstring at the end of July and missed the first preseason game. The 33-year-old has played 16 games in back-to-back seasons after sitting out 12 across 2010 and 2011. It's good to see him back on the field so he can build a rapport with Ryan Fitzpatrick and become more familiar with Bill O'Brien's offensive system after he skipped OTAs and minicamp.

Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) could be back in the team's second preseason game, according to houstontexans.com.
Insight: Johnson pulled his right hamstring at the end of July and hasn't practiced. The 33-year-old has played 16 games in back-to-back seasons after sitting out 12 across 2010 and 2011. We'd like him to get back on the field so he can build a rapport with Ryan Fitzpatrick and become more familiar with Bill O'Brien's offensive system after he skipped OTAs and minicamp.
 
8/6/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (hamstring) isn't expected to play in the preseason opener, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Johnson pulled his right hamstring last Monday and hasn't returned to practice yet. The 33-year-old has played 16 games in back-to-back seasons after sitting out 12 across 2010 and 2011.
 
7/25/2014 11:20:00 AM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson reported to training camp Friday after talking with management during the week, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Johnson (109 catches, 1,407 yards, five touchdowns in 2013) had wanted out of Houston, but that doesn't appear to be an option. On the downside of his career, he's still a WR1.
 
7/10/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson wants out of Houston, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Johnson (109 catches, 1,407 yards, five touchdowns in 2013) posted another good season despite the obvious problems the team had at quarterback last season and at 33-years-old apparently doesn't want to go through a rebuilding period.
 
7/9/2014 8:09:00 PM
Description: When asked if he'll be at training camp, Texans receiver Andre Johnson told Marcus Smith of NFL Network "hopefully" and added "we'll see what happens."
Insight: Johnson (109 catches, 1,407 yards, five touchdowns in 2013) expressed his desire to be traded because he doesn't want to go through another rebuild with the Texans. He'll likely be with Houston when the season starts and is a bargain at his ADP of 46.6 (fantasyfootballcalculator.com).

Description: As expected, Houston wideout Andre Johnson was not present for the start of minicamp. SOURCE: Houston Chronicle
Insight: Johnson (109 catches, 1,407 yards, five touchdowns in 2013) is hoping for a trade, though the Texans don't seem willing to accomodate him. This standoff could last well into training camp.
 
5/22/2014 9:05:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson is expected to skip the team's upcoming mandatory minicamp. SOURCE: NFL.com
Insight: It's pretty clear Johnson wants out of Houston. But unfortunately, it's not up to him. The star wideout is under contract until 2017 and the team has no obligation to trade him. Unless another team is willing to take on most of Johnson's remaining $29 million salary, he's unlikely to be dealt.
 
5/13/2014 7:37:00 PM
Description: Andre Johnson doesn't sound convinced about his future in Houston. SOURCE: Tania Ganguli, ESPN
Insight: He's decided not to attend OTAs or mini-camp. Johnson (109 receptions, 1,407 yards, 5 TD) won't be a free agent until 2017 so he'd have to ask for a trade in order to leave Houston.
 
Hot11/10/2013 8:07:00 PM
Description: Houston wideout Andre Johnson's resurgence continued in Sunday's loss to Arizona.
Insight: Yardage-wise, Sunday was actually one of Johnson's worst performances of the season (37 yards). But he reeled in two touchdowns, which was more than enough to keep fantasy owners happy. Expect another solid outing from Johnson next week against the Raiders.
 
10/18/2013 9:38:00 PM
Description: Texans receiver Andre Johnson (shin) had a full practice Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Insight: Johnson's shin is still sore but he's getting closer to being 100 percent. Case Keenum is making his first NFL start in place of Matt Schaub but he should be able to get Johnson the ball enough to make him worth starting as a WR2.
