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.
Good news: Johnson (concussion), who was inactive last week, is tentatively expected to return to the starting lineup in Week 16. More good news: The Baltimore Ravens defense has surrendered the third-most fantasy points to opposing receivers during the last month. Bad news: Either Thad Lewis or Case Keenum will be throwing passes to Johnson. Despite the less-than-stellar quarterback situation, 'AJ' still should do some damage.
It's remarkable that a team can enter the season with Super Bowl aspirations and wind up losing its last 14 games in a row. While the losing streak may have been attributable to the loss of Arian Foster or the sudden decline in skills of Matt Schaub, it surely wasn't Andre Johnson's fault. Like a fine wine, Johnson just seems to get better with age. For a guy that has missed his fair share of games throughout his career, Johnson enters his 12th season having played all 32 games over the past two seasons. Whether it's Ryan Fitzpatrick or a rookie throwing him the ball, Andre will remain the go-to receiver in the Texans' offense. There is a chance that Johnson may not report to training camp in an attempt to get traded, so monitor this situation as his contract makes him very tough to deal.
Surprisingly, Mario Williams didn't have his own thread in the Texans room.

Round 2, Pick 1
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)
