DeVonta Smith: IDGAF About Your Fantasy Football Team
While the city of Philadelphia was getting destroyed physically and mentally by the Phillies, the Eagles beat the Houston Texans 29-17. The birds are now 8-0 on the season, the best start in franchise history.
Dallas Goedert had eight catches on the night for 100 yards and a touchdown. AJ Brown added four receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown. Outside of those two guys, the remainder of the Eagles receiving corps was pretty silent.
DeVonta Smith only had two receptions for 22 yards and after the game, he took to Instagram to let everyone know that he does not give a fuck about anyones fantasy teams and honestly, I couldn’t agree more.
DeVonta Smith Does Not Give A Fuck About Your Fantasy Team
Smitty has 40 receptions for 442 yards and two touchdowns this season. Sure, the numbers could be better but the Eagles are 8-0 and have more weapons on offense than anyone in the NFL so yeah, his numbers are not quite where they should be.
Regardless, that’s certainly not a reason to be angry.
I’m more upset with people tweeting about fantasy football in the first place. The number one rule of fantasy football is to not talk about your team because literally no one cares about your fantasy football team. Do people really think anyone cares about their $50 buy-in snake draft fantasy league where your aunt picked players based off player names and jersey colors, while your asshole kid brother refused to draft anyone that doesn’t play for the Eagles?
Then on top of that, people feel the need to DM athletes on social media and complain about their performances because it hurt your fantasy team? Those types of people are the scum of the internet and embarrass the rest of us.
We need to stop doing that. Please.
Our guys over at Crossing Broad snagged a bunch of tweets with people crying about Smitty’s fantasy numbers. If you want to check them out, you can do that right here.
