Andre Johnson: Stud or eventual Dud?

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby WideoutProspector » Tue Oct 05, 2004 1:06 pm

Andre Johnson is a stud, no doubt. He has speed, hands and size. However, the one thing that worries me about him is that he doesn't get as many looks as he should. He has great yards per catch but when he doesn't connect on the long bomb, his stats are mediocre. Jabar Gaffney gets the ball thrown to him more for reasons which are not clear to me given Johnson's talent. Having said all of that, I would definitely not trade Johnson for Fred Taylor. Even if I wasn't in a receiver heavy keeper league, I wouldn't move him for Dom Davis or Fred Taylor

woudl anyone trade dillon FOR johnson?

I have jimmy smith and djax at wr, and dillon, f. taylor, brown at the 2 rb's and flex. it would weaken my flex but give me some more wr stability.

I could play puittman at flex...

I have Johnson as my No. 2 behind R. Moss in a 10 teamer and I'm loving him there. He should post solid numbers throughout to get him easily within a top 15 spot.

Just for the record I think Bruce's #'s are an abberation that will calm down in the weeks to come when they face stiffer competition.
