Yahoo- If you started New York Giants tight end Larry Donnell last week in fantasy, you likely won. Nothing like getting a three-touchdown night from a virtually unknown tight end to push you over the top. And if you started Donnell in fantasy last week you had a lot of faith. More than Donnell himself.
Pshhh, not impressed. Call me when you have the second highest score of the week and lose by 2 on the last play of the Monday Night Football game. Call me when you lose by 4 because Cincinnati waits until the game starts to announce that A.J. Green isn't playing. Think I care that you didn't start yourself. Only an asshole would start you in that situation. Sure, the people that did probably mopped up W's all across the nation, doesn't make it right though.
Playing Larry Donnell in fantasy means either one of two things. Either your starting tight end is on bye or injured, or you had your Giants' glasses on and started him despite everyone's better judgement. Winning with 3 Larry Donnell touchdowns is like going all in with nothing and hitting on the river card. Such bullshit.
Good news though, he is definitely starting himself this week. Know what that means? No one else should. He is basically guaranteeing himself a bad game. This is like when you pick up the waiver wire free agent that had 5 carries for 6 yards and 3 touchdowns and start him the next week. It works out negative infinity percent of the time. If Larry Donnell plans on starting himself the rest of the season he will probably be cut by season's end. You don't play around with the fantasy football Gods. Best case scenario is he traded himself yesterday, his value is going nowhere but down.
P.S. I feel his pain. I started Vernon Davis' Charmin' soft ass too. VD is a goddamn threat to my health, pun absolutely intended.
