2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Even at 33 years old, nobody is questioning Andre Johnson's talents. The former third overall pick out of "Da U" is an all-time great and future Hall of Famer. That being said, it may be best to stay away from Johnson this year. There are way too many red flags to draft him. Johnson is currently absent from mandatory camp because he is frustrated with the direction of the organization. He has voiced his opinion often since the draft about how Houston may no longer be the place for him. This is sure not to sit well with new head coach and known disciplinarian Bill O'Brien. This is not what a new regime wants out of its veteran leaders. Also, No. 2 WR DeAndre Hopkins is expected to emerge in the Texans passing game and play a major role. This could possibly cost Johnson some targets. Worst of all is the Texans' quarterback situation, which is also the reason Johnson is so frustrated. The Texans have a slew of backup QBs with the only options being Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and Tom Savage. When the Texans went defense with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft, Johnson may have reached his breaking point. Can you blame him? He's been in Houston his whole career and has been the best player on a lot of bad teams. Johnson knows his playing days are numbered and he wants to win now. There is one positive to this whole debacle though. If Johnson gets traded to another team, his fantasy value could skyrocket depending on where he lands. Johnson should be drafted as a low end WR1 as long as his holdout ends sooner rather than later.

May-21-15 Colts WR Andre Johnson and RB Frank Gore making a 'pretty seamless' transition to Indy

We are hearing nothing but good things from Colts' camp about free agent acquisitions Andre Johnson and Frank Gore. Both clearly appear to be playing significant roles in the offense. Head coach Chuck Pagano weighed in on their transition. "Pretty seamless," Pagano said. "They don't miss a beat as far as the playbook goes, knowing what to do. Every time I see them in the huddle, break a huddle, to me it looks like they're going the right direction. They're lining up right. They're very talented, talented guys. They fit right into the locker room. They're professionals. Again, the résumé speaks for itself. They're not talkers. They're workers, they're doers."

Andrew Luck also threw in his two cents on the former Hurricane greats. There is a learning adjustment and we'll continue to learn," Luck said. "I'd like to think you get better and build that repertoire every week through the offseason, training camp and during the season. But they understand football, you can tell that. They know how to play and certain things they know how to do and certain things that coaches are asking them might be a little different. They work at it just like everybody else. But it's been very good and it's incredibly valuable to get these days with them."

Fantasy Analysis:

I am much higher on Johnson than Gore. Gore should be drafted as a low-end RB2 with tempered expectations. I also believe you can steal Andre Johnson as low-end WR2. However, he'll put up high-end WR2 numbers, perhaps even low-end WR1 numbers. He is a great player that was stuck in a terrible situation. He's getting up there in age, nevertheless, he has never had a quarterback even remotely close to as talented as Luck. I'm buying Johnson and selling Gore.

3.09 #5 World Ranked - I wanted to go with a high volume WR here after starting with 2 RB's. He's requested a trade but I think he stays in Houston and puts up one more solid season. He won't finish in the top 5 but he's a decent shot to finish as a low end WR1
