Andre Johnson Impresses Fantasy Owners With Huge Numbers Against Dolphins

The Texans saw Andre Johnson play like his old self in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Johnson missed a large part of 2011 with hamstring issues, but he's back in 2012 looking to prove he's as good as he's ever been. Johnson caught eight passes for 118 yards and a touchdown against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Matt Schaub basically looked for Johnson or Owen Daniels for the majority of this matchup against Miami. Johnson finished with 10 targets overall, and continued to show his great rapport with his quarterback. Injuries are clearly going to remain in the back of every Johnson owner's mind, but it's promising to see he start out with such a dominant display, reminding us all how good he really is. Don't hesitate to start him next week against Jacksonville. The Jaguars fared well against passing attacks last season, but Johnson is too good to bench right now.
