San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Stevie Johnson put together his best game as a 49er on Sunday, hauling in nine receptions for 103 yards. That had to make some fantasy football owners happy, although it is likely not many were starting him. The 49ers acquired Johnson this past offseason, and he is situated as the No. 3 receiver in an offense that can be wildly unpredictable in how it uses the passing game.
I would not be surprised if Johnson has received some tweets demanding better results for fantasy teams. That has become a thing, with people thanking or criticizing a player on Twitter because of their performance the previous Sunday.
Stevie Johnson decided to get in on the act today:
I drafted many of you to my fantasy work team so make sure to grab me some points today at your workplace. Don't let me down.— HiMom. (@StevieJohnson13) September 24, 2014
On its own, the tweet made me laugh. But then people started responding. This might be my favorite:
