Andre Johnson Week 13 Fantasy Projections

Houston Texans wie receiver Andre Johnson returned last week after being out since Week 4 with a hamstring injury and only had two catches for 22 yards. With another week of practice, Johnson should be in better football shape however the Texans are down to their No. 3 quarterback T.J. Yates. With Johnson recovering from an injury coupled with a reserve quarterback it is hard to accurately predict how productive Johnson will be fantasy wise.

CBS Sports fantasy goes deeper into what to expect from Johnson on Sunday:

Johnson, who missed six straight games with a hamstring injury, hardly seemed worth the wait when he returned with only two catches for 22 yards Week 12 at Jacksonville. But coach Gary Kubiak said he liked what he saw from Johnson, whose biggest problem seemed to be tiring out after such a long layoff. He'll hopefully be in better condition to play four quarters Week 13 against the Falcons, because the Texans are going to need him. They'll be starting third-string QB T.J. Yates after Matt Schaub suffered a season-ending injury in Week 10 and Matt Leinart followed him to the IR list in Week 12. The Falcons rank only 23rd against the pass this season, allowing 245.7 yards per game, but they rank second against the run.

Over at SB Nation's Fake Teams are optimistic as they rank Johnson as the No. 7 wide receiver, and over at numberFire they have Johnson at No. 18.
