CB - TEN - IR
Texans' starting cornerback suffered his second concussion of the season in a Week 1 loss to the Patriots.
The Texans do not have great depth at cornerback so this could be a pass defense to target in fantasy. Aaron Colvin could play more on the outside and safeties Kareem Jackson and Tyrann Mathieu both have experience at corner.
Kevin Johnson suffered a pretty brutal looking concussion in Week 1 against the Patriots. Johnson had just come back from a concussion earlier this preseason.
Johnson does not hold any fantasy value and may have a difficult time sticking on the roster at this point given his durability issues.
Kevin Johnson was hurt in the first quarter after landing awkwardly and hitting his head against the turf. He was able to walk off on his own power after being down for minutes, but was diagnosed with a concussion and will enter the protocol.
It was a worrisome moment for the cornerback and while concussions are never good, it's early enough in the preseason where he could be ready for the start of the season, if not sooner.
The Texans chose Kevin Johnson 16th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft. The former Wake Forest DB started every game last season and allowed just 24 completions.
Johnson joins the defense of the Houston Texans, a D/ST favorite. Parker weighs in on the small side (6'1",188 lbs), which may hinder his role as a run supporter. However, Johnson does has the cover skills to help the team right away. Team defense leaguers have no reason to shy away from the Texans in 2015.
Cornerback Kevin Johnson has a work out session with the Baltimore Ravens at the training facility, according to an article by Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Johnson also visited with the Dallas Cowboys and had a dinner meeting with Pittsburgh Steelers GM.
Baltimore recently extended the contract of Jimmy Smith. After last year's collapse of the secondary, the team will have an interest in strengthening their stock. Johnson is a lightweight at 6'0', 188 pounds, but he can stick with a receiver in man coverage and has good eye-hand coordination when catching passes. He has a great athletic ability that never missed a game while playing in college.
