Roddy White Apologizes to Fantasy Owners on Twitter After Week 1
Roddy White must be involved with fantasy sports in some way. The reason I say that is because he obviously understands us. Unlike Arian Foster who has no idea what fantasy football is all about, White knows NFL players in the modern era have added responsibility. It is no longer sufficient to simply help your team win games and fulfill your contractual obligations. Professional athletes — mainly skill position players — have a responsibility to us fantasy owners week in and week out. Why else would we spend countless hours of our lives trying to assemble the best possible fantasy team?
Most, if not all, of the Falcons players would probably love to have their week one performances back. In a game that was expected to be relatively tight, the Bears owned the Falcons and came up with a 30-12 victory. White, who had 8 catches for 61 yards and no scores, felt he owed his fantasy owners an apology on Twitter after the game.
LB and the rest of your fantasy owners appreciate the love, Roddy. Just don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s the first game and the eight receptions helped ease some of the pain in PPR leagues. Just make sure you show us that greatest show on turf business you were talking about as soon as the Falcons return home.
