Last Week: 2 catches, 18 yards, TD
Johnson caught his fifth touchdown of the year against New England on Sunday, but shortly after was taken out of the game with a hamstring injury. At the very least he got you a touchdown before exiting the game and will more than likely play this week vs. St. Louis Rams.
Aaron Hernandez TE Patriots
Last Week: 97 yards
Hernadez caught eight passes for 97 yards (both season highs) in Sunday’s 23-16 win over Miami. Now a primetime matchup against the Houston Texans (19th ranked pass defense) is up next on Sunday night. With Rob Gronkowski still sidelined, Hernandez’s production will continue to be high, especially when they start to enter that red zone.
Last Week: 6 points allowed, interception, 2 sacks
The Jets defense gave up the least amount of points to an opponent all week, holding Arizona to an impressive six points. Although the defense didn’t score any touchdowns or have multiple turnovers, it did manage to have two sacks and held the Cardinals to just two field goals all game. That should be enough for any starting defense, any week.
