Andre Johnson returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday. He participated in the individual drills at full speed, but apparently did not participate in the joints drills with the Falcons. (Source: Houston Chronicle)

Fantasy Impact: There is still uncertainty surrounding whether or not Johnson will play in Saturday’s preseason game, but returning to the field for two days in a row is a positive sign. Johnson is currently the fourteenth ranked wide receiver.

Andre Johnson continues to be sidelined with what appears to be a minor hamstring strain. However, the veteran seems optimistic about playing soon, possibly during the Texans first preseason game next Saturday. (Source: Houston Chronicle)

Fantasy Impact: With his holdout a distant memory, Johnson is excited to get back to football, and fantasy owners targeting the seven-time Pro Bowler should be as well. However, despite his optimism, it is clear that the coaching staff will make sure Johnson takes all the time he needs to fully recover. Therefore, his status during the preseason should be monitored to ensure he is ready for Week 1. In O'Brien's offense, Johnson is expected to be moved around a lot, and the resulting mismatches should bode well for his fantasy production.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Andre Johnson was present for the first day of training camp, effectively ending his offseason holdout. Discontentment with the organization had led to Johnson missing OTA's and a mandatory minicamp. Despite his absence, Johnson had remained in contact with the team, and now that he has reported to training camp, the offense returns to normal. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Andre Johnson showed last year that despite his age, he can still be extremely productive. He saw the second-most targets of any wideout with 181, and still managed to finish 12th in scoring despite a total collapse at the quarterback position. Factor in an offensive innovator and a mediocre quarterback in need of a safety blanket, and Johnson is primed for another productive season. The only question was whether he would even play this season, so news that he is back with the team vaults his fantasy value to its rightful place with the very best WR's in the league.

AJ isn't dead yet as shown by his 109 receptions last season. I don't think Ryan Fitzpatrick is any worse than what the Texans had last season and AJ should be able to remain the focal point of the passing game.

Johnson will turn 33 years old in July, but continues to play at an elite level. Despite suffering through poor quarterback play last season, he ranked 3rd in catches (109), 7th in yards (1407), 6th in catches of 20+ yards (20) and 2nd in catches for a first down (69).

Still an elite talent, but his situation is less than ideal.

A new QB in Houston will make a huge difference in Johnson's numbers and his attitude. Expect Johnson to have a solid 2014 year.

Have to be a bit concerned w/ health (hammy), QB (Fitzpatrick), motivation (wants out of town)

Trade talk and no QB is starting to kill his upside.

Andre Johnson finally reported to camp, only to suffer a minor hamstring injury. He should be ready fro Week 1. He had another 109 reception and 1,407 yard season, but he had only five receiving touchdowns on the season. At 33-years old, he is a strong WR2 in fantasy, due to low touchdown numbers and bad quarterback play.

Gary Kubiak is out, Bill O’Brien is in. Remember in Week 9 last season when Andre Johnson scored his first TD of the season? Remember Weeks 9 and 10 were the only 2 weeks Andre 3000 scored TD’s on the season? Instead of Kubiak’s heavy featured run scheme where he didn’t utilize Andre in the Red Zone, Bill O’Brien will. In the Red Zone Kubiak only featured TE’s and RB’s; this will be different with new coach Bill O’Brien. At Penn State, O’Brien ran a pro styled offense depending on the opponents strength. With Houston’s easy pass schedule this season, O’Brien will get his Playmaker the ball. With Ryan Fitzpatrick in at QB Andre Johnson will continue to see a ton of targets. His deep ball numbers may actually be down a little, but a 33 year old Andre Johnson will again put up WR2 Fantasy numbers, if healthy for an entire season.

There’s not a lot to love for the AFC South from a fantasy perspective. You’ve got Andrew Luck, Andre Johnson, and…uh…yeah. But low draft stock can lead to good late-round value. Cody Pagels is here to separate the hidden gems from the trash in part one of the AFC South.

TEAM FIRST What does “Team First,” mean?
