NFL players and fantasy football usually don't mix. The players hate hearing about how they affected someone's fantasy team—good or bad. Plus, one can only imagine how many mentions they get after a bad game because of fantasy implications.
Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson has been seeing a lot of negative talk about his performance on Twitter after a lackluster 56 yards in two games, and, frankly, he doesn't care.
Anderson had the following to say to fantasy owners (via the Denver Post): "You can sit me for 17 weeks. It would not bother me one bit. I don't care. I saw something on ESPN: 'Is C.J. Anderson a fantasy bust?' I wish I could call ESPN and say: 'Tell them to drop me. … Every owner can drop me.'"
Strong words. But fantasy owners might want to relax before dropping the hammer on Anderson. According to his latest tweet, he feels pretty good.
We will see if that results in a better game for him Sunday.
