Well what else is new? Another Friday, and another announcement that Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson will not play yet again this week. That is fantastic news (inject massive sarcasm here). Another week with Johnson on my team without the ability to drop him in the league I play in because he was ranked heading into the regular season as one of the top five players at his position.
During my draft, I really wanted to select Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson, as I predicted the Lions would be a vastly improved team this season, but there was the underlying issue regarding Lions QB Matthew Stafford and if he could remain upright for the season. So, I skipped over Calvin Johnson, and selected the other Johnson, Andre instead. I should have gone with my gut, instead of the “smart” pick.
He has provided me nothing this season in my money league. Along with the Texans wide receiver which patrols the sidelines on Sunday, I also had the great fortune of selecting San Diego Charge...

Andre Johnson will not play in Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers, head coach Gary Kubiak said on Friday.
This will be the sixth game Johnson has missed after undergoing surgery on a right hamstring he injured in a Week 4 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the Texans off next week, there appears to be little reason to rush Johnson back.
Houston lost the first two games without...
Houston Texans star receiver Andre Johnson will miss his sixth
straight game as he continues a longer-than-expected recovery from
a right hamstring injury. Johnson ran on a separate field Friday as
Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was held out of practice on Wednesday and appears unlikely to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Johnson has missed five games after undergoing surgery on his right hamstring and with the Texans off next week, there appears to be little reason to rush him back for this Sunday....
The good news: No Andre Johnson.
Tampa has no one who has proven they could have covered a WR like Johnson.
The bad news: Arian Foster and Ben Tate are still playing.
Tampa’s run defense has been horrible over the past few games. The Saints ran wild last week and none of their backs are as good as the Texans duo.
So what’s the Bucs answer?
Look, I have no...
ANDRE JOHNSON OUT FOR TEXANS: This gets the top spot because it’s such good news. You saw how the Bucs did against Calvin Johnson. They didn’t need yet another Johnson all up in their faces. Yes, I said it that way on purpose.
BLOUNT DISCUSSES THE CHEAP SHOT: LeGarrette Blount spoke about his personal foul last Sunday.
“That’s one of the things that always beats us. When...
Nick Scurfield on Twitter is reporting that Head Coach Gary Kubiak said Andre Johnson could be a game-time decision if he practices on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: This has been going on all week, and Johnson has yet to really practice. The Texans have the bye after this weeks game against Tampa Bay, and it is assumed that if Johnson shows any ill-signs...
Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson will not play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak ruled out wide receiver Andre Johnson because of his hamstring injury.
With the Lions' season ready to fire back up after the bye week, I thought I should list what I liked about the Lions over their first 8 games, and the resulting 6-2 record. I came up with a list of 10, a nice, round number...also the number of victories the Lions are going to need in order to have a shot at the NFC wild card.
So in no particular order...
1. Calvin Johnson...
There are a few things you need to know about my friend Peter Schrager. He likes to play it safe. He loves picking the home team. And he really likes riding a wave.
Pete, the NFL, more than ever before, is a week to week league. Don't overreact to the Bears being so jazzed up on Monday night, motivated by being 8 point dogs, and beating the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Bears host...
In the pass-happy NFL of 2011, it's a shame Megatron won't be visiting Revis Island.
Calvin Johnson and Darrelle Revis have been the maestros of the league halfway through the schedule. The Lions wideout nicknamed Megatron has looked superhuman and is on a record receiving pace. The Jets All-Pro cornerback actually has been tested a few times, flunking quarterbacks and receivers...
