2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jun-27-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

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.

Apr-24-15 Colts WR Andre Johnson at offseason workouts and building chemistry

Andre Johnson is a seasoned vet and skipped his offseason program with the Texans last season. There was more to that, nevertheless, veterans of Johnson's status often skip the voluntary workouts. However, Johnson is very excited to get to Indianapolis, and learn the system and meet build chemistry with his new teammates. "I'm excited about it," Johnson said. "I'll actually be heading to Indy tomorrow. I'm excited about the opportunity. Can't wait to get it going. It'll be different, but at the same time, still football. I'll go in, just learn what I need to learn, learn my new teammates and try to fit in and help win games."

Fantasy Analysis:

This is great to hear about Johnson. As a matter of fact everything that happened this offseason is great for his fantasy value. He brings something to the table that Indy desperately needs and finds himself in a much better situation. He now is in an offense led by Andrew Luck instead of Houston's miserable passing attack. He should be drafted as a high-end WR3 with upside

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
