In the news:
Seahawks fantasy tip
Houston receiver Andre Johnson is a risky play Sunday.
If you have Houston WR Andre Johnson, you might want to bench him. Not only is Johnson (shin bruise) injured — he’s expected to play — but he’s facing a secondary that has been stingy against top receivers. Carolina’s Steve Smith had six catches for 51 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks, but his touchdown catch came against backup CB Byron Maxwell. San Francisco’s Anquan Boldin was completely taken out of the game, finishing with just one catch for 7 yards. And while Jacksonville’s Cecil Shorts had a big day statistically — eight catches, 143 yards — he did nearly all of his damage late, when the game was out of hand.
