Week Nine Fantasy Football WRs - Andre Johnson

My WR options are more limited than the ones I had last week thanks to byes for Torry Holt and Muhsin Muhammad. I am considering Texans' WR Andre Johnson as out for this week because reports have his coach saying he's ready to go, but Johnson's "people" say he shouldn't play. Who does Johnson listen to? I'm not gambling that he will not have "his people" at the back of his mind even if he suits-up. Throw-in a tough Raiders' secondary, and I do not see Johnson as a part of my start/sit decisions.

From ESPN's Len Pasquarelli:

Houston star wide receiver Andre Johnson, who has missed the last six games with strained knee ligaments, is about 85 percent recovered, he assessed this week. But the two-time Pro Bowl performer, who was off to a marvelous start, with 14 catches, 262 yards and three touchdowns in the first two games of the year, is probably still at least a week away from returning.
I use the grades assigned by KC Joyner, The Football Scientist, to get the grades for the WRs and DBs. These are available through his "Thursday Night Notes" package for fantasy football. Through the first eight weeks, he has a record of 20-16 for those WRs on my fantasy football team, "Orlovsky's O", which is tied for the third best record in a 12-team league with a 5-3 record behind a 5-2-1 and 6-2 record.
