Andre Johnson is back to taking on a full load in Texans practice, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Johnson is back to taking on a full load at Houston Texans practice, Nick Scurfield of the team's official site reports. Johnson injured his ribs late in preseason and had been limited in practice, but he is apparently ready for the start of the regular season. On Wednesday, Johnson stayed late to take extra reps with quarterback Matt Schaub.

Analysis: This is a great sign for Johnson owners (of which there are many). Johnson, 31, is approaching the outward bounds of his prime, but this season he is still considered among the elite fantasy options. He ranks No. 4 in SB Nation's standard league and PPR wide receiver rankings for Week 1. Don't worry about the missed reps in practice, Johnson is a must-start in just about every fantasy format. He should match up nicely against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
