The Houston Texans don't exactly have a formidable passing attack. They have Andre Johnson ranking third in the NFL in receptions as well as receiving yards, but they rank just 12th in passing yards and 19th in passing TDs.
With Andre getting all the work, the offense doesn't really use other guy so help matriculate the ball down the field. DeAndre Hopkins has been particularly quiet over the past three weeks. He hasn't caught more than two balls and two of those three games he couldn't get over nine receiving yards. Last week he was able to catch a 66-yard reception, so his 77 yards is a little deceptive.
Fantasy impact: It's nice that the Texans don't have many weapons in their offense. However, there just isn't enough to go around. It's one thing for an offense like the Denver Broncos to have three receivers and a tight end all serve as must-start guys, but the Texans really only have two guys fantasy owners can trust -- Ben Tate and Andre Johnson. DeAndre is holding in most leagues just in case Andre Johnson has an injury, but the rookie doesn't get enough targets to start in most formats.
