Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is probable versus the Packers. We breakdown the fantasy implications.
Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was listed as probable on the team's injury report this week. Johnson has had a groin injury, but it hasn't kept him off the field this season. He is expected to start this weekend when the Houston Texans host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.
This Week 6 matchup will feature two high-powered offenses, so you can expect Johnson to be involved plenty. His presence in the offense has been elite throughout his career, but Johnson is yet to really break ground in 2012. He should get an opportunity against Green Bay.
Fantasy Analysis: In Houston, it's really been the Arian Foster show. Foster is second in the NFL in rushing and on pace to set a league record for carries in a season. Johnson is still an elite wide receiver in the league and will be a fantasy must-start for every game that he is in the lineup. His inability to stay healthy in the past has been a burden for fantasy owners because he is such a talent.
It's a good thing this injury isn't as serious as we've seen with Johnson as of recent. He is a game-changer at the receiver position, a favorite target of quarterback Matt Schaub and capable of putting up massive fantasy numbers.
