Todd Gurley challenges angry fantasy football owner to fight
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley has been one of the NFL’s biggest disappointments this season, and those who drafted him in fantasy football — likely in the first round — have been incredibly frustrated.
After Gurley rushed for just 38 yards on 14 carries in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night, someone who has the former Georgia star on his fantasy roster said he plans to fist fight Gurley if he ever sees him on the street. Gurley had a straightforward response:
@TG3II if I ever see you in public we're fist fighting over your fantasy football performance this year

Gurley rushed for 1,106 yards last season in just 13 games and was named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year. Shockingly, he doesn’t have a single game this season with 100 or more rushing yards. His season high rushing total is 85 yards, and that was in Week 3. Gurley is averaging 3.2 yards per carry.
He knows he has been terrible, but Gurley is not the first NFL player to express his displeasure over fantasy football nerds complaining. If you remember, one of the league’s best offensive players unloaded on fantasy football owners years back for being insensitive about serious injuries. As long as fantasy football exists, the trolling will always be an issue.
