The Baltimore Ravens pulled out a crucial win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night, but Torrey Smith had a relatively quiet game. The wide receiver secured just four of his 12 targets for 69 yards. He did not find the end zone.
Given that Week 15 was the semifinals for many fantasy football players, Smith left a lot of his “owners” disappointed. A four-catch, 69-yard performance is not going to carry many teams to the fantasy finals, and those who have Smith on their team let him hear about it after the game. He was quick to fire back.
I hate y'all fantasy folks who are tweeting me about your fake team…y'all make me sick…Ravens win that's all that matters to me

About an hour before Smith sent his angry tweet, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was saying “you’re welcome” to his fantasy owners after he kicked six field goals. It’s interesting to see how differently teammates can feel about fantasy football after the same game. But don’t worry, Torrey — Ray Rice knows exactly how you feel.
