Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Johnson has been dealing with a chest injury, but he practiced in full on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. He should be ready to play on Sunday. The Texans will need their passing game to be clicking, since starting running back Arian Foster is dealing with a knee injury. Ben Tate will fill his shoes nicely, but the passing game may see added attempts if Foster can't play.

Fantasy Impact: Andre Johnson is a top five fantasy football wide receiver, but injuries always seem to bog down his numbers. This particularly injury is not serious, though, and Johnson is a must start against the Miami Dolphins. With the departure of Vontae Davis, the Dolphins don't have anyone that can match up to Johnson.
