Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson turned in a terrific performance against one of the league's best secondaries in Week 4. He was targeted a game-high 12 times against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday and turned that into nine catches for 110 yards receiving.
Considering he came into the game with injury concerns and saw a healthy dose of Richard Sherman, Johnson's performance was even more impressive than the numbers indicate.
Fantasy spin: Johnson continues to be one of the most talented wide receivers in the league, despite getting older. The only thing limiting Johnson at this point is quarterback Matt Schaub, who has been iffy through four weeks of the season. Still, Schaub looks Johnson's way often enough that it's not a huge problem.
With a legitimate threat across from him in DeAndre Hopkins, Johnson has a luxury he hasn't had throughout his NFL career. That makes him a solid fantasy option moving forward.
