The Texans have a pretty easy game plan, run the ball, run the ball, pass to Johnson, run the ball. When they play teams like the Chargers who are just depleted of talent they can execute that plan with some ease. You can't count on AJ getting in the end zone, but
Decker may lose out on some targets to Welker, but he's still a monster in the Red Zone. I think Manning will be pass happy Thursday night and Decker has a very good chance to grab a touchdown.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
With Hopkins slow to return to practice and having missed important camp time, expect Johnson to remain just as heavily targeted as '12 in the short term.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Chargers D is randomly tough but I see a solid game out of him here.
I see Broncos putting on a show, so all Denver WRs could be top-25 this week.
  
Staff Rankings

Johnson was able to stay healthy in 2012 and in doing so produced his 4th seasons with at least 100-plus receptions as a Bounce Back player in 2012. Johnson should be viewed as a low-end No.1 Fantasy WR in PPR formats and a SOLID No.2 Fantasy WR in standard leagues worth drafting as early as late-3rd Round and into the 4th as a Top 15 Wide Receiver.
Decker should be considered a solid No. 2 Fantasy WR, worth drafting as early as Rounds 5 and 6 Decker, as expected, had a breakout campaign in 2012. It was his 3rd-Year in the NFL. He broke out with career highs in receptions(85), yards (1,064) and touchdowns (13) as well as posting double digits in Fantasy points 8 times.

While Johnson had a big season in 2012, the Texans know he is not the same player he was before. The Texans drafted DeAndre Hopkins in the 1st Round, Owen Daniels is healthy, and Arian Foster/Ben Tate are both looking for bounce back seasons. I love 'Andre1500' as a player, but this season he could be inconsistent. His preseason is one to watch. Keep in mind Schaub is lucky to have a game where he throws the ball 25+ Times.
While Decker offers a lot potential inconsistency in 2013. He does offer some nice upside as there is no way any defense can focus on stopping Decker with D-Thom and Welker. Decker should be a nice threat for some huge weeks, and some weeks you wish Peyton remembered Decker was on his team. His total numbers will put him as an ELITE WR#3.
  
Taylor Smith

DeAndre Hopkins' presence should free up more space for Andre, which hopefully means more than four touchdowns in 2013.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Its noticeable that Andre is losing his step, making it harder to produce in man Coverage. Last year Johnson was targeted a league leading 58.1% of his teams Targets And dont expect that to change this year, Coach Kubiak. The 32 year old receiver played in all 16 games last year, a first since 2009. Either way, hes getting targets again this year.
Look for an obvious regression here from last season. In 2012, Decker grabbed 13 TDs and 1,064 receiving yards. With Welker on the field, Decker should still see around 1,000 yards, but about half the amount of TDs.
  
Raju Byfield

Should be solid WR3 option with weekly WR2 upside
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I think Johnson is going to show he has lost a step this year, which is why I don't have him as a WR1, even though he is playing a Chargers D that was just 19th against fantasy receivers last year.
The Broncos are going to go with a lot of three receiver packages and even though Thomas and Welker will see a ton of looks, Manning is not going to forget about Decker.
