Chris Johnson can be sneaky play in Week 1 if you are looking for a flex player.

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

Wash might be a bit better this year but Texans know they need to pount it with Foster and Skins run D isn't great.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Johnson was average against Raiders last year and he may share the rock. He can go for a home run or stink it up. Total toss up.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

He'll be ready for week 1, so expect a big workload right from the get go whil the Texans establish the running game to let that vaunted defense go to work.

We'll see if he even plays in the opener, but if he does, Washington allowed the fourth most points to fantasy running backs last year. I would expect the Texans to ease him back into action, not give him 25 rushing attempts against a NFC East opponent.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

The Raiders spent a lot of money to upgrade a defense that allowed the fifth most points to fantasy running backs, but I think Johnson has big game upside in the season opener.
