OUR FAVORITE wide receiver - who's not an Eagle - is the Texans' Andre Johnson. Yesterday, Johnson hosted his eighth annual shopping spree for a dozen children from the Harris County Department of Protective Services. "You can go through the store and get whatever you want," Johnson said, according to the Houston Chronicle. "I'll pay for it. Have a Merry Christmas. " The children, who met with Johnson at a Toys R Us near NRG Stadium, were given an empty shopping cart and 80 seconds (Johnson's uniform number)

ANDRE JOHNSON is "not even an art-gallery type of guy," but the 22-year-old found himself in the lobby of the Crane Arts building in North Philadelphia yesterday, waiting to get his juvenile record expunged. A man approached Johnson and asked why he was waiting instead of walking around the gallery, where a photography exhibit by Richard Ross showcases kids in prison. The young subjects' stories are told in their own words in accompanying captions. "I'm like, 'I don't really . . . ' " Johnson said.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 11 of the 2014 season. Watch 'em roll Robert Griffin III, QB, Redskins vs. Buccaneers. Coming off his bye and a solid return in Week 9 against the Vikings, Griffin should be well-prepared for the vulnerable secondary heading to FedEx Field. Given the playmaking receivers at his disposal and a good running game to keep the Bucs guessing, RG3's ceiling is high. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers at Giants. This has been a frustrating year for Gore and his owners, but he turned in a solid performance in New Orleans last week.

MANY OF US are grizzled fantasy veterans; hardened cynics who feel that if Steven Jackson isn't going to break 100 yards, he might as well break his ankle. We don't get too excited when Denver's Eddie Royal gets 146 yards in Week 1 or too down when Minnesota's Adrian Peterson has only 32 in Week 5. As such, hearing the perspective of a fantasy rookie is almost like watching a child at Christmas and the unbridled joy as the day unfolds. Mike Mondrosch, a 39-year-old resident of Fox Chase, took the fantasy plunge this season.

The Houston Texans turned to their kids, then to their stars, to win the first playoff appearance in franchise history, a 31-10 rout of the bungling Cincinnati Bengals. Rookie J.J. Watt's leaping interception return for a touchdown late in the first half propelled the Texans in Saturday's AFC wild-card game. Third-string quarterback T.J. Yates, another rookie pressed into action, threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to Andre Johnson, and Arian Foster followed with his second touchdown of the game, a 42-yard run in the fourth quarter, to finish off the Bengals (9-8)

SCOUTING REPORT Danny Amendola, St. Louis: The thought is he could become the Wes Welker new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels had in New England. Thing is, Amendola already is. He had 85 catches last year, but for only 689 yards. Miles Austin, Dallas: Numbers slipped across the board last year after Tony Romo (collarbone) got hurt. But Romo has had a good camp and Austin's value is up. Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City: He will have to find consistency to take that next step up the wide receiver food chain.

Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals: Ran an offseason camp in his hometown near Minneapolis that attracted a number of current players, plus retired guys Jerry Rice and Cris Carter. Fitzgerald takes being football's best wide receiver seriously. Andre Johnson, Texans: Love the chemistry he's developed with Matt Schaub. In fact, because Houston has a more reliable quarterback, bump Andre Johnson ahead of Calvin Johnson. Randy Moss, Patriots: If you start your team with a high pick at running back, getting Moss late in the second round isn't so bad; early third round is even better.

BACK IN AUGUST, when we sitting around in shorts and sipping cold beers, the two biggest sporting concerns were whether the Phillies were going to make a playoff push and, for fantasy owners, who should be the first running back drafted after Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy or Darren McFadden? Turns out neither the Phils, McCoy nor McFadden deserved our optimism. Oh well. It's fantasy awards time again and we'd like to hear from you.

BALTIMORE - The Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans are quite content to run against the grain in the pass-happy NFL. Baltimore relies heavily on running back Ray Rice and a stingy defensive unit led by Pro Bowl linebackers Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs. Houston depends on the rushing prowess of Arian Foster and the NFL's second-ranked defense. Neither team intends to alter that approach in Sunday's playoff game, so the one that stays true to form the longest likely will advance to the AFC championship game.

CINCINNATI - A rookie quarterback led the biggest drive in Houston Texans history, one that took them to the end zone and their first playoff berth. T.J. Yates threw a 6-yard touchdown pass with two seconds left on Sunday for a 20-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals that put the 10-year Texans in the playoffs for the first time. With their seventh straight win, the Texans (10-3) moved to the threshold of the playoffs. They hugged on the field then headed to the locker room, waiting for the final seconds of Tennessee's game to play out. When time ran out on the Titans, preserving New Orleans' 22-17 victory, the Texans - who entered the league in 2002 - celebrated the AFC South title.

YESTERDAY IN North Hollywood, rapper Andre Johnson cut off his penis and jumped out of an apartment building. It is unclear whether he jumped after realizing he cut off his penis. Johnson, however, only jumped from the building's second level and survived the fall. As did his penis. Both Johnson, and his recovered johnson, were taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where both were being treated. CNN reported that Johnson has been a member of Northstar , a California hip-hop group that was part of the Wu-Tang Clan family, according to the Wu-Tang Clan website.

STATE COLLEGE - He showed up as a no-name coach, but in two seasons, his dimple-chinned face became familiar to the blue-and-white faithful, and he did more than just keep a program afloat in an arduous scenario. Much to the chagrin of Penn State fans, however, Bill O'Brien will not be back for a third season. The 44-year-old will become the next head coach of the NFL's Houston Texans, ESPN reported Tuesday night, and an introductory news conference is expected today. Rumors of O'Brien's potential departure from Penn State swirled for a few weeks, but really gained steam Saturday, when ESPN reported that O'Brien, a former New England Patriots offensive coordinator who spent 5 years under Bill Belichick, was the "overwhelming favorite" to land the Texans job. He will take over a Houston side that won the AFC South in 2011 and '12 and has a core group of talent that includes defensive end J.J. Watt and wideout Andre Johnson.

WITH A quarter of the season in the books, let's take a look at what we know, what we don't know, and what we should have known after a month's worth of fantasy football. Reggie Bush was the best offseason acquisition. "That dude does special things out there every week," Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said. Bush is coming off a 139-yard rushing effort that was the third-highest of his career, and has 11 catches on 17 targets in three games. As always, injuries are a concern with Bush, who missed Week 3 with a knee injury.

Danny Amendola, Patriots: A fun side bet would be who gets more targets, Amendola with the Patriots or Wes Welker with the Broncos. It would have to be a weekly wager, since Amendola missed 15 games in 2011 and five last year. Dez Bryant, Cowboys: Bryant has improved his numbers in each of his first three seasons and had 10 touchdowns in a seven-game stretch in the second half of last season. It's scary that he's only 24. Michael Crabtree, 49ers: Out until late in the season, recovering from surgery for a torn Achilles' tendon suffered in May. Anquan Boldin is the Niners wideout to have, but don't expect much more than WR3 production.

Where else would the kind of offensive display that occurred Sunday in Houston happen but in the Lone Star State? The 9-1 Texans had their hands full with the plucky 1-9 Jacksonville Jaguars, and the sole reason was the firepower both teams brought to bear. Consider: Houston's Matt Schaub passed for 527 yards to tie former Houston Oilers quarterback Warren Moon for the second-most passing yards in an NFL game. Norm Van Brocklin holds the record with 554 yards for the Los Angeles Rams in 1951.

HOUSTON - Andre Johnson had the game of his life to save the Houston Texans on Sunday. Johnson finished off a career day by turning a screen pass from Matt Schaub into a 48-yard sprint for the winning touchdown in overtime as the Texans rallied to beat Jacksonville, 43-37. "All the good teams find a way to win, no matter if it's ugly, pretty or whatever," Johnson said. "In the win column, it either says 'W' or 'L.' They don't ask how you got it done. " Schaub threw a career-high five TD passes, completed a franchise-record 43 passes and finished with 527 yards in the air, second most in NFL history.
