Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Although Case Keenum has obvious shortcomings as a starting quarterback, he still can get the ball into Johnson’s hands most of the time. Start AJ as a fantasy WR1 against a Colts defense that ranked below average in fantasy points allowed to enemy wide outs during the last month. Back in Week 9, Johnson lit up Indianapolis with nine grabs for 229 yards and three touchdowns, but don’t expect a repeat of that monster outing.
It was a tale of two halves for Johnson in 2012 as he had 42 receptions for 562 yards and two touchdowns after eight games. But boy, what a second half to 2012 he had. Over the last eight games Johnson had 70 receptions for 1,036 yards and two touchdowns. The Texans targeted Johnson on 58.1% of their pass attempts to receivers, the highest rate in the league. In order to ease the pressure on Johnson, the Texans drafted DeAndre Hopkins out of Clemson No. 27 in the first round and expect him to step right in and start. Let others overpay for last year’s stats as we some regression in Andre’s game in 2013.
Positives Tough and gets a lot of looks. # 1 WR in fantasy last year. Always gets open or makes the tough catch. Negatives Schaub keeps getting hurt. Draft Strategy Just got my #1 RB, now I needed a #1 WR. (Contributed by: tlandavazo)
Round 1, Pick 9
Draft Strategy I opted to buck the trend and take the guy who I feel is the #1 receiver in FF.
Many have Fitzgerald ranked above him, but not me. Granted Fitz just went one pick ahead of me here, but Im happy to take Andre here and grab a solid RB at the top of the 2nd. (Contributed by: und2006)
