Andre Johnson named AFC Offensive Player of the Month: Fantasy implications

Gregory Shamus

Andre Johnson has been named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Month after averaging over 150 yards per game in November. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Johnson has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month after catching 35 passing for 614 yards and a touchdown in November. He averaged 153.5 yards per game for the Houston Texans on his way to earning the honor, according to Sean Glennon of the Nashville Tennessean.

For the year, Johnson now has 69 receptions for 1,058 yards and three touchdowns. He has caught 52 passes over his last six games, after catching just 17 passes over his first five games of the 2012 season.

Fantasy Impact: Remember the early season trepidation over whether the veteran Johnson had finally gone over the hill? The 33-year-old has proven all doubters wrong by absolutely tearing up box scores in recent weeks, highlighted by a 273-yard performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11.

Johnson is a solid WR1 in all fantasy formats at this point, and especially this week against the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee is giving up 262 yards passing per game, and has allowed 22 touchdown passes to 10 interceptions on the year.
