Want to make yourself angry? Play fantasy football. For every 31-fantasy-point week from Marques Colston, you will have a two-fantasy-point week from Steve Johnson. It's like playing in an NCAA bracket pool: You will be wrong; it's just a matter of being wrong less than the other guy.

It was one of the few places to nail Colston and Alex Smith's Week 5 breakout. It also would have told you not to trust Chris Johnson; he was the No. 24 RB on its list.

So who should you avoid this week to minimize the heartburn? Glad you asked. Read on to avoid hanging your head in Romo-esque shame at the end of the week.
