Texans beat writer: WR Andre Johnson will not be traded

John McClain, NFL reporter for the Houston Chronicle, has guaranteed that Johnson will not be traded. This follows reports last week that the 33-year old Johnson, who had missed team activities earlier this year, wished to be traded to another NFL team. While there were reports of other teams expressing interest in a trade for Johnson, it now seems fairly certain that he will remain a Texan for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Analysis:

The idea of Johnson being paired with a top-level offense and quarterback was cause for great excitement in fantasy circles last week. Alas, all that speculation was for naught, as beat writer McClain has dashed hopes of a Tom Brady-Andre Johnson @johnson80 connection in New England. Still, even on the bad-to-mediocre Texans, Johnson should be drafted as a very high-end WR2. As the best big-play option on a team that is often down late in games, Johnson figures to be a big factor on fantasy scoreboards with "garbage time" points.
