It's only been two quarters of play but, as of Sunday night, Andre Johnson has already surpassed every fantasy wide receiver for Week 9. Johnson has seven catches on ten targets for 190 yards and three touchdowns. Johnson is playing with quarterback Case Keenum, who connect with Johnson on a 62-yard touchdown, a 41-yard touchdown, and finally the two connected on a 5-yard fade in the end zone with just 39 seconds left in the half. DeVier Posey and Garrett Graham are the only other Houston Texans players to record a catch through the first half.
Fantasy impact: Considering that Johnson had yet to find the end zone all season, he's certainly redeeming himself for fantasy owners in just one half of football. Johnson's three touchdowns catapult him to the top of the leaderboards at his position with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay packers yet to play on Monday night. Seven of Keenum's nine completions belong to Johnson, which is promising for fantasy owners concerned about the absence of a veteran quarterback under center in Houston.
