Is this the worst fantasy football bad beat ever?

Drew Brees

We’ve seen plenty of bad fantasy football beats over the years, but this one may top them all.

Barstool Sports’ “Laces Out” Twitter account a screenshot of a fantasy football owner’s result from the semifinals in Week 15. That owner lost their semifinal matchup by .01 points — 128.77 to 128.76. According to the tweet, the person lost because of Drew Brees’ kneel-down on the final play of the game.

Brees took a knee with 35 seconds left to run off the remaining time in a 12-9 win by the New Orleans Saints over the Carolina Panthers on Monday night. He lost one yard on the play, finishing with 2 rushing attempts for -2 yards. He also took a 1-yard loss for his kneeldown before halftime.

Do we need to begin a campaign to make sure kneeling down on the final play of a half does not affect a player’s rushing stats? Seems like that would only be fair. Oh, and if you want to compare bad beat stories, we’ve got plenty more here.
