Johnson is trying to work his way back from a bruised shin suffered in last week's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He was still in a lot of pain on Wednesday and held out of practice. Johnson is expected to be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. He has 25 receptions for 258 yards on the season.
Fantasy impact: Rookie DeAndre Hopkins stepped up in a big way recently, but Johnson is still the focal point of Houston's passing game, and his absence would significantly change the offense. Even if he's active on Sunday, Johnson could be on a limited snap count. He's a big fantasy risk going up against Richard Sherman and company. There are better WR2 options out there this week.
