Todd Gurley, the 2015 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, has had a less-than successful sophomore campaign, which has lead to beef with rando fantasy football devotees on Twitter.

It’s not entirely his fault, as Gurley himself said, since the Los Angeles Rams have been running what “looked like a middle school offense.” Still, middle schoolers can be pretty darned effective, what with all those hormones jangling around and such.

“We’re just going through the motions,” Gurley said. “It looks like everybody’s just playing to get through.”

That “we” might include Gurley, who’s topped one hundred yards on the ground once in the last 22 games. When it comes to upgrading an offense that ranks dead last in the NFL through week 14, according to Football Outsiders, not only does he not know what to do, “I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really don’t know,” said Gurley. “We all got to figure that out.”

One way might be to ditch social media for a while. Gurley was selected in the first round in most fantasy football drafts, but he’s ranked 21st amongst running backs in a standard-scoring league, and people are getting snippy. Like this fella.

Naturally, Gurley told Keith to meet him in Temecula.

Keith really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really does not want to catch hands from Gurley. Awful season notwithstanding, Gurley’s an athlete and this is Keith.

But one should never get Mad Online. It’s a category one mistake by Gurley, which allowed Keith to drop a pretty savage burn.

Good job, Keith. Your fantasy team still sucks.
