Kicker Justin Tucker Only Cared That The Ravens Won Because His Fantasy Team Also Won


Justin Tucker Ravens KickerIn case you missed last night’s Baltimore Ravens win over the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, here’s the game recap:

- Both teams sucked.
- The Lions sucked a little harder.
- Calvin Johnson was weirdly bad, and I’m kind of worried.
- Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is god.

But, the selfish bastard didn’t even care that his six field goals gave the Ravens a legit shot at the playoffs; he only cared that he drafted himself on his fantasy team and thus his team, probably, “The Justin ‘Not Chris’ Tuckers LOL.” had a good night as well.

That’s insider trading, where I’m from.

NOTE: I’m obviously joking. His interview was fantastic.

But I’m highly disappointed that the reporter didn’t ask him when he drafted himself, opening up the probability of him saying “first round, baby!” followed by the reporter exposing the fact that he’s almost certainly not still alive in the playoffs.

    It’s true. It’s difficult to succeed in fantasy football when your first round pick is a bust. In baseball it’s easier to compensate through mid to late round picks and the waiver wire. Fortunately I took Jamaal Charles with the #3 pick and am headed for the championship.

    How much was he worth in your league Sunday? He scored 65 points in ours. Needless to say I’m out.

  • Greg Gutlessfeld

    A point per ten rushing or receiving yards, five bonus pts after 100, seven after 150 and ten after 200. Yeah, was about 65. I had Marshall, Stacy, Gordon, Hauschka and the Buffalo D, too. Won easily. My players almost all play soft defenses in the title and my opponent’s plays a few good ones. Anything can happen in a week though. I wish it was a two week final.

  • Seahawk

    Can’t go wrong with Haushka. Good luck.

  • Greg Gutlessfeld

    Thanks. I drafted Crosby and thought Hauschka had a better matchup and added him. Save for the bye week, I’ve had him ever since.

    Evan Rauh I wonder why you care so much about the Ravens winning. All I see you is moan and biatch about the win all over this forum. You Broncos fans scared the Ravens making the play-offs?..

    You’re responding to the wrong person. I have zero clue who Evan Ruah is and I hate Peon Womanning and the Broncos. I’m a die hard Pats fan.
