If you’re a fantasy owner with LaGarrette Blount in your backfield, you’ve probably been about as successful as a lemonade stand through two games. For the first time since 2012, the new Eagle did not have a single rushing attempt in a game. Week one against the Redskins wasn’t much better. The 30 year old rushed for just 46 yards on 14 carries, which pans out to just 3.2 yards per carry.
Mind you, Blount is coming off arguably the best season in his seven year NFL career last year with the Patriots, posting career highs in carries (299), yards (1,161), and touchdowns (18, an NFL high).
As you can imagine, fantasy owners who thought they were acquiring Blount on a hot streak have been wildly disappointed through two games. They hopped on Twitter to express their sadness.
Blount did what no disgruntled athlete should do after having a shitty game: responding to trolls.
Moral of the story: Don’t piss of LeGarrette Blount.
