In Sunday’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles RB LeGerrette Blount amassed a whooping total of zero yards, which apparently caused Blount’s fantasy football owners to lose their collective minds and go after the former Patriots RB on Twitter.
I really could care less about all y'all fantasy teams, get outta my mentions with that shit. ✌🏿

First off, if you’re an adult human being who actually takes time out of your day to angrily tweet at a professional athlete about their fantasy performance, then you have some things you need to reevaluate in your own personal life.
Secondly, the only reason Legarrette Blount put up a totally fantasy dud is because the Eagles coaching staff decided to give their newly acquired RB a grand total of 0 carries for the game. Though I have never claimed to be a professional football player, in my experience as a sports blogger I can confirm it is rather difficult to amass any yards without the ball in your hands. Strangely enough Blount had one catch for 0 yards as well, so that kind of sums up how clueless the Eagles coaching staff must be.
Thirdly, if as a fantasy owner, you expected a 30 year old Blount to replicate any of the statistics he put up in New England, I guess it kind of makes sense that you’re one of those stupid people that hurls insult at athletes about your sacred fantasy team.
Though credit where credit is due, this fan definitely roasted LG with this response to his tweet-
I mean…. The Patriots couldn't care less about resigning you for a reason… pic.twitter.com/9IkRMOHg7a

Which I mean is pretty true, Mike Gillislee has 4 TDs in 2 games and has virtually filled the exact role LG had with the Patriots.
