Some opponents suggest that Texans WR Andre Johnson has lost perhaps a half-step, and isn’t as explosive. Johnson had only four touchdown catches last season, his fewest since 2002 in a season in which he played at least nine games.
Johnson started all 16 games last year, the first time since 2009, and finished with a career high 1,598 yards with 112 catches. But perhaps the purpose of the blurb is to mention the team is hoping first round pick WR DeAndre Hopkins eventually takes over as the team's WR1 down the road. We ranked Hopkins 46th among our WRs, but he has an ADP of the 11th round so he's getting some attention. We rank Johnson 10th among our WRs with an ADP of the third round.
