Another NFL week, another batch of names on the injury report.
The reflex for fantasy owners when their star goes down with an injury is to gasp, and then panic shortly after.
The instance that undoubtedly prompted this in Week 4's NFL action was when Andre Johnson collapsed untouched in Reliant Stadium. His teammates surrounded him much like his fantasy owners were surrounded with uncertainty.
The good news is, panic doesn't have to set in.
Johnson, like many other injured studs, will pose an inconvenience to fantasy owners in the coming weeks, but not the entire season.
There's a reason that the NFL season is described ad nauseam as "a marathon and not a race."
It's because it's true. The same approach must be taken with fantasy football, meaning patience will be key in the coming weeks.
Don't give up yet. These following ailing stars still have value to cash in.
