Andre Johnson injury update: Texans WR gets cleared, fantasy value remains solid

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Andre Johnson was cleared to play for Week 3. We break down the fantasy implications.

Andre Johnson was cleared to play in Week 3 and is listed as probable to face the Ravens. He sat out of practice on Wednesday, was limited on Thursday and practiced in full on Friday.

It's good to see that Andre is back after a scary concussion. He did not return in Week 2 after putting up a nice line of eight catches for 76 yards.

Fantasy impact: There's no way that anyone can think about benching Andre. The Ravens don't have a very good secondary and Andre figures to be a big piece of Houston's game plan. DeAndre Hopkins has already proven that he has to be owned in all leagues for his tremendous upside, but this week is going to be a tough call. He can be viewed as a low-end WR3 in most formats.
