With the Los Angeles Rams victory over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday the Rams secured their first division title in over a decade. In addition, the win set up the first home NFL playoff game in Los Angeles since January 9, 1994 when the then Los Angeles, soon to be Las Vegas, but for now Oakland Raiders hosted the Denver Broncos in the Wild Card round of the 1993 playoffs. It was barely a year later that both the Rams and Raiders left town, leaving Los Angeles with only fantasy football to care about.
And while he’s been a favorite of fantasy football owners this season, Todd Gurley still doesn’t care about your fantasy football team. Following the Rams victory, in which Gurley had a second straight monster game. Between Weeks 15 and 16 Gurley amassed 446 yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns, or roughly what the entire Seattle Seahawks running back corps has done this season (okay, so that may be a bit of an exaggeration, you get the drift), and after the game this is what Gurley had to say.
Fantasy owners you’re welcome now leave us alone. Merry Christmas!— Todd Gurley II (@TG3II) December 25, 2017
This is not the first time Gurley has taken to Twitter to voice his annoyance at fantasy owners on social media. Late last season he responded in a less than friendly manner to a fan who complained about Gurley’s fantasy production, and it really shouldn’t be a surprise.
NFL players put their health and future quality of life on the line each week for our entertainment, and unless fantasy owners start paying them what they are making from their NFL clubs, it’s doubtful they will care your fantasy team.
Just like the rest of us don’t care about your fantasy team.
