Fantasy football owners were a bit upset with Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker. The Ravens played in a snowy game against the Minnesota Vikings and he didn’t have any field goal attempts.
“I’ve been getting hit up quite a bit on the Twittersphere leading up to the game for a couple days [by] people in their fantasy playoff matchups,” Tucker said. “And those are very important.
The Ravens defeated the Detroit Lions on Monday night, thanks to kicker Tucker’s six field goals. Not only was his team happy, but fantasy owners. Tucker gave his fantasy owners a shout out in a post-game conference.
“I’m glad I could come through, of course, for my reality team as well as for my fantasy owners,” Tucker said, via the team’s website. “Thank you for picking me up, it means a lot to me. And hopefully I can continue to contribute to the successes of your respective teams.”
“My fantasy team is benefitting from it as well,” Tucker said in an ESPN interview. “So I’m happy about that. Fantasy owners around the world, I hope you guys appreciate the points as well.”
