Painter, Cassel or Tebow, who do you add?

Forgive me for acting like Chip Diller from “Animal House,” but I need you all to remain calm. Just because a player blows up on Sunday that does not mean that you should rush out to add him to your fantasy roster. With that in mind, here is a look at some of the top performers from Week 5 and what you should do about these guys.

Gates is disappointing, but don’t drop him

The waiver wire offers slim pickings, kind of like the Shakey’s Pizza buffet after the Thursday afternoon lunch rush. So you can imagine my surprise when in one of my leagues Antonio Gates was on the wire. And imagine me nearly spraining my thumb while maneuvering my mouse to try to add Gates to my squad. Sadly, my waiver claim went unfulfilled but this leads to a bigger lesson: Don’t drop Gates.

Who should fill in for Andre Johnson?

Texans coach Gary Kubiak assured fantasy enthusiasts when he said that WR Dre Johnson was going to miss “some time.” And by assuring us, I mean he could not have been more vague. Oh well, hopefully Dre will start tweeting out MRI photos like his teammate Arian Foster did.
