Andre Johnson had a big day against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson had 8 catches in 10 targets for 119 yards and a touchdown as the Texans routed the Miami Dolphins 30-10.

Fantasy Impact: Business as usual for the elite WR. Miami has no answer for Houston's explosive offense and couldn't contain Johnson at all, who muscled his way in the end zone corner for a dazzling 14-yard score from Matt Schaub. Johnson's injury problems from 2011 seem to be a thing from the past, and he's once again a Top 5 fantasy WR this season. The Texans play Jacksonville in Week 2, and we see no reason not to start him again.
