Andre Johnson gives Texans, fantasy owners 116 receiving yards

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans wide receiver missed the end zone for the first time in three games, but still had big yardage. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson entered Week 9 with no touchdowns on the season. He came out of Week 10 with five. Riding the hot streak, Johnson couldn't get back into the end zone Sunday, but he did amass yardage in the Texans' 28-23 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Johnson caught 10 passes for 116 yards Sunday, his fourth hundred-yard game of the season and second in his last three games. After scoring in the single digits in fantasy in five of six games between Weeks 2 and 7, Johnson has scored in the double digits in three straight, averaging 22 points a game in that time, including a 40-point fantasy explosion in Week 9.

Fantasy impact: After a slow start to the season -- only two hundred-yard games and no scores through eight weeks -- Johnson has been making up for lost time in a big way in recent weeks, and now finds himself eighth overall in fantasy scoring among wide receivers.

He may have gotten to this point unconventionally, but Johnson has solidified himself as a solid WR1 going forward, especially the with Texans playing the Jacksonville Jaguars twice in the next three weeks.
