Texans will still rely heavily on WR Andre Johnson

The Texans have made strides in upgrading their receiving corps for the upcoming season. Kevin Walter is gone, and they drafted DeAndre Hopkins to be their new No. 2 wideout. It's been so far, so good for Hopkins. Who is the No. 1 guy in that group is undisputed. Last year, Andre Johnson @johnson80 saw 58.1 percent of the passes that the Texans threw to receivers head his way. That was the highest rate in the league. Some said that's depending too much on one player; head coach Gary Kubiak disagrees.
"Tell them a big percentage is going to go through him again," Kubiak said to the Houston Chronicle.

Fantasy Analysis:

Maybe he won't see more targets than the rest of Houston's receivers combined, but it's no secret that Andre is still a major weapon at the age of 31 (he turns 32 in July). He rebounded from a couple of injury-marred seasons to have a fabulous 2012. He's an easy WR1.
