Keepers, Week 5: Chris Johnson hates your fantasy football team

Chris Johnson only plays well if you have him on your fantasy team's bench. He's a jerk.

I successfully avoided Chris Johnson in all four of my drafts before the season, but I still hate him. I hate him for YOU, the poor sap who bought the lies about his return to greatness, who started him for three weeks and got nothing from him, who benched him in Week 4 only to see him run for 141 yards against the Texans. Johnson did this to you, poor fantasy owner, because he's mean and loves to watch you lose.

As a fantasy football owner, I crave reliability, and Johnson offers none. That's why, in this week's episode of "Keepers," I recommend you unload Johnson as soon as possible. Of course, it's possible that he returns to greatness -- but if he does, it's only to spite you. He's the worst.
