Andre Johnson Week 12 Fantasy Football Projections

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson is returning after missing that past six games with a hamstring injury and is expected to be back in the lineup. However, he will be without his starting quarterback Matt Schaub who is out with for the season with a lisfranc injury. In Schaub's place will be Matt Leinart and that will effect the type of numbers that Johnson could put up Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Plus, look for Houston to run the ball a lot with Arian Foster early on in this game so that all the pressure is not on Leinart's arm to win the game.

With Johnson's hamstring injury even though he is expected to be at full strength he could have second thoughts and times on the field making cuts to avoid injuring his hamstring again, and that could cause him to not make plays or get open.

Over at numberFire, they are cautious about ranking to high and have him ranked as the No. 14 wide receiver this week.
