The Texans top receiver is still dealing with a groin injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson (groin) was limited on Wednesday, a recurring injury this year but not one that has kept him from missing many snaps. Johnson missed nine games in 2011 but has remained mostly healthy this season, even though he's been held in check for three of fives games on the year. The 31-year-old receiver had just one catch for 15 yards on Monday night against the Jets.

Fantasy Take: After a slow game on Monday night, it makes sense that Houston would be cautious with their top receiving weapon. Even though he's been held under four catches in each of the last four games, Johnson still possesses big play ability. He had eight catches for 119 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins in Week 1 and could very well do something like that again against the Packers, who have allowed ten passing touchdowns on the year.
