2011 NFL Predictions: Why Calvin Johnson Will Be Better Than Andre Johnson
I can't think of a reason why anyone would not want Andre Johnson on their team. He is the best option on a Houston Texans team that has one of most high-powered offenses in the NFL.
Johnson finished with 86 receptions for 1,216 yards and eight touchdowns in 2010, all while missing three games due to injury.
Every fantasy football player would love to have him, and should want him on their team, unless Calvin Johnson is available.
Andre Johnson has never cracked the double-digit touchdown mark in his eight-year career. Nine touchdowns are the most he’s had in any one season, back in 2009. This is a major shock to me, considering he has had Matt Schaub throwing him the rock the past four seasons.
There's something else to think about, too: Andre Johnson is 30 years old. Now, I’m not suggesting that he has lost a step, I’m merely questioning the likelihood of him cracking 10 or more touchdowns in a season at this stage of his career.
Calvin Johnson is coming off a season where he found the end zone 12 times. 'Megatron' has scored double-digit touchdowns in two of the past three seasons, and he’s only been in the league for four years.
Note the collection of quarterbacks this Johnson had throwing the ball to him: Jon Kitna, Daunte Culpepper, Shaun Hill, Drew Stanton, Dan Orlovsky and Matt Stafford.
I’m not dogging Matt Stafford here at all. Stafford is the real deal, but he simply has not been healthy.
Stafford has thrown 19 touchdowns in his two injury-plagued seasons, and seven of those scores have gone to Megatron. That’s 37 percent of Stafford’s TDs.
That's a big chunk and that number will only go up with a healthy Stafford. With him looking to play all 16 games for the first this season, this could be the season that Calvin Johnson separates himself from the rest of the NFL.
