Fantasy Football 2012 Rankings: Houston Texans Wide Receiver Andre Johnson
Since joining the Houston Texans in 2003, Andre Johnson has always been considered one of the top wide receivers in the NFL as his size and strength make it difficult for any defender to cover him. Now that he’s back at 100 percent, expectations are high for Johnson heading into the fantasy football 2012 season–especially after the Texans reached the playoffs for the first time in franchise history last season.
Johnson was limited to playing in just seven games for Houston during the regular season in 2011, but his production from the previous three seasons helps him make a case for being the league’s third best wide receiver. From 2008-10, Johnson recorded 4,360 yards to go along with 25 touchdowns and only missed three games–so it’s no surprise to see him around the top of fantasy football rankings for a few years now.
Now that he’s feeling 100 percent once again and Matt Schaub–who suffered a season-ending foot in 2011 and missed the final six games of the regular season–will be back calling the shots at quarterback, there’s no reason why Johnson shouldn’t bounce back and have a monstrous year in 2012. Houston emerged as one of the top teams in the AFC last season when Johnson missed a majority of the season–so imagine what type of numbers the offense will produce now that he’s back and healthy.
If he’s available in the second or third round–fantasy owners should jump on the opportunity to have Johnson on their team immediately as he’ll make a great No. 1 wideout for all leagues.
