"Public service announcement: I can care less about fantasy football," Johnson tweeted. "Key word fantasy. As long as we win I'm happy. I rush for 200 n lose y'all happy. U r the head coach n the owner of ur fantasy team so u should be mad at urself. I didn't ask any of u to draft me so if I'm so sorry y start me."
So yeah, the more you know.
The Titans smoked the Jets Sunday, 38-13, but Johnson only gained 21 yards on 15 carries, which no doubt drew the ire of fantasy football owners, and prompted Johnson's aforementioned public service announcement.
No I can't give out an injury report before the game. I play real football and it would be stupid to tip the other team off and say I'm hurt— Roddy White (@roddywhiteTV) September 9, 2013
And two years before that, Texans running back Arian Foster, who was recovering from an injury, was equally unimpressed with the whole fantasty football subculture.
