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.”
Fantasy football is torture.
