Texans WR Johnson out of action

Texans WR Andre Johnson has been declared inactive for today’s game against the Raiders due to an injured ankle.

In his absence, Kevin Walter and Jacoby Jones will start for the Texans. Walter is well worth using in fantasy leagues, but a matchup against Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha looms. I think Jones will post better numbers — if you need a wideout, he’s still a free agent in over 70 percent of NFL.com leagues.

I’d also expect Owen Daniels to see more targets in the passing game, so look for him to have his best stat line of the season.
