Johnson entered the game needing one catch to reach the mark held by Denver's Wes Welker. He did it on a 33-yard reception in the first quarter Sunday against the Broncos.
Johnson became the 15th player in NFL history to reach 900 receptions. He did it in his 150th career game, making him the second fastest to reach the mark behind Marvin Harrison, who did it in 149 games.
Johnson has continued to shine for the struggling Texans with 72 receptions for 966 yards. He has 24 catches for 382 yards and five touchdowns in the last three games.
Case Keenum looked Johnson's way early and often, finding him for 62-yard score on the first drive of the game. Johnson appears to have a good rapport with Keenum and could post big numbers down the stretch.
Fantasy owners of Johnson are feeling the brunt of Matt Schuab's struggles this year, putting a dent in the receiver's production. Still, Johnson is really Houston's lone viable target in the passing game - and the Texans appear as though they'll be facing deficits in many games this year - so his value shouldn't take a colossal hit, particularly in PPR leagues.
Johnson has a pair of 100-yard efforts in four games this season, though he's still looking for his first touchdown.
He should be fine moving forward.
Johnson owners hope this will be the norm this season and that he can still be an elite receiver.
