UPDATE: Texans WR Andre Johnson expected to be at training camp on time

The Houston Texans will arrive at training camp on Friday, and the face of the franchise is expected to join them. After holding out of spring practices and then reportedly demanding a trade, wide receiver Andre Johnson @johnson80 will likely be back with the Texans this week, according to Houston Chronicle columnist Jerome Solomon. Johnson visited the team's facility on Monday.


Update: NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has a source who gives a contradictory view. The source says Johnson visiting the facility "means nothing for camp." Guess we'll just have to wait until Friday.

Fantasy Analysis:

A trade was never a legitimate possibility due to all of the dead money the Texans would have to absorb in the event of a deal. Johnson is understandably frustrated with the team's short-term vision, which includes Ryan Fitzpatrick at starting quarterback. But he stood to gain nothing by holding out.
Johnson is coming off of a 109-catch, 1,407-yard season. He is 33, but he still makes for quite the valuable WR2. His uncertain future with the team has dropped his ADP into the fifth round in some drafts. As much as I don't trust Fitzpatrick, it's really difficult to pass up on Johnson that far into the draft.
