Andre Johnson was a fantasy disappointment in Week 2. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson had a quiet day against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2, grabbing just three catches on four targets for 21 yards. The Texans defeated Jacksonville 27-7.

Fantasy Impact; These are the type of fantasy risks you take with WRs on a run-heavy offense. The Texans committed to the run game early and often, and with the game well in hand by the 3rd quarter, never really needed to rely on the pass. Johnson has seen better days, but he's still an elite fantasy option in most league formats. Look for a bounce back next week, when the Texans will need to keep up with Peyton Manning and the Broncos.
