Andre Johnson gives fantasy owners his worst game of the season

Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

The Texans wide receiver's hot stretch ended Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson had been on fire lately, with 66 fantasy points in his last three games. That came to a crashing halt Sunday, as the receiver had his worst game of the year in the Texans' 13-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Texans' ninth straight loss after starting the season 2-0.

Johnson had two catches for 36 yards Sunday, tying his season-worst yardage, while the two catches were a season-worst all on their own.

Fantasy impact: Johnson and new starting quarterback Case Keenum appeared to have a strong connection in recent weeks, with five scores over a two-game span and almost 118 receiving yards per game with the new quarterback. Keenum had a disastrous game Sunday, though, and it killed Johnson's value. Going forward, Johnson will either need Keenum to bounce back, or for Matt Schaub to regain the starting job, for him to maintain any value. He can't do anything with a quarterback the quality of Sunday's Keenum throwing the ball.
