Andre Johnson may have changed quarterbacks this season, but that didn't keep him from having a huge game against the Indianapolis Colts.

With around five minutes left in the third quarter and the Houston Texans up 21-3, Johnson had already caught seven passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns.  He finished with 229 yards and three touchdowns, giving him 40 fantasy points in ESPN's standard scoring leagues.

Before this game, Johnson had yet to catch a touchdown pass.  He had 48 receptions for 584 yards, but he had struggled to find the end zone.

It's safe to say that isn't the case anymore.

Case Keenum has loved throwing to Johnson so far.  In his NFL debut against the Kansas City Chiefs, Keenum found Johnson four times for 89 yards.

For those fantasy owners who had been waiting for Johnson to break out, it finally happened.  Keenum appears to be the real deal in Houston, at least for now, and that will likely mean some more big games for the star wide receiver.
