Colts plan to move around Andre Johnson - [Full Article]

With a weapon like WR Andre Johnson, the Colts are giving him several opportunities to showcase his unique range.

Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is moving Johnson all around the Colts offense, lining the seven-time Pro Bowler up both outside and in the slot, more frequently than he did in Houston.

Hamilton could pop in the film and see what the Colts were getting in Johnson from a pure football standpoint. The Colts offensive coordinator is also seeing the side of Johnson inside the classroom.

“One of the things that’s allowed Andre to be such a good pro for so long is his ability to focus and pay attention to the details,” Hamilton says.

“He approached joining our team as if he was a rookie. He took copious notes and he was always focus and engaged in meetings. He’s constantly asking questions and he’s working overtime to build a relationship with Andrew Luck and the rest of our guys.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Moving Johnson around the formation is a way to create mismatches. Johnson is already a mismatch against a lot of corners but seeing him in the slot more could provide a nice option for Luck. The Colts have plenty of talent at the position to allow Johnson to do this, but it sounds like the team is doing what it has to to make Johnson a key part of the passing attack.
