Larry Donnell Lost In Fantasy Football Because He Didn't Start Himself

Illustration for article titled Larry Donnell Lost In Fantasy Football Because He Didnt Start Himself

Nobody ever wants to hear someone complain about their fantasy team, but we can give Giants tight end Larry Donnell a pass here, since this particular gripe involves him boning himself out of a victory.

Donnell drafted himself, obviously, but also has all-pro tight end Vernon Davis on his roster. In Week 4, Donnell put a banged-up Davis in his lineup and left himself on the bench. Davis finished with two catches for eight yards; Donnell went out and torched Washington for 54 yards and three touchdowns. That was a bad move for Donnell, as he explained to The Record:

Donnell’s fantasy team on which he starts Drew Brees, Frank Gore, Anquan Boldin and Mike Wallace, among others, lost by 15 points.

“Would’ve won if I played me,” Donnell told The Record after practice Wednesday. “During the game, I’m like, ‘Really?’ That’s the honest truth.”
