Andre Johnson needed a 60-yard play to help save his performance for owners everywhere. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Schaub only looked Andre Johnson's way four times in Week 3, but Johnson made the most of those looks against the Broncos. He finished with two receptions for 72 yards and a touchdown, with the majority of his numbers coming on one 60-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson started out the season with a huge Week 1, but since hasn't managed to pad his stat sheet very often. He finished with only three receptions for 21 yards last weekend, and this time around he needed a huge scoring play to make anything out of his Week 3 play for fantasy owners. With the Texans wanting to run the ball so often with Arian Foster, Johnson needs to continue find the end zone to ensure each week will be worth your while.
