Todd Gurley Accepts Challenge to Fight Frustrated Fantasy Owner

The Los Angeles Rams have done one hell of a job crushing the souls of anyone weird enough to still (or already) call themselves a Rams fan after the team was ripped from St. Louis and dropped in its new locale.

That goes doubly for anyone who spent big on running back Todd Gurley in their fantasy football draft before the season.

In 2015, the Georgia alum waltzed to the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, ripping off 1,106 rushing yards and 10 touchdons despite making just 12 starts. After yet another rough performance on Thursday night, the sophomore will almost assuredly not reach those numbers despite a full complement of games in 2016—he now has 778 yards on the ground and five touchdowns with two contests remaining.

After Gurley gained 36 total yards with no scores in a blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks, one of said fantasy owners couldn't take it anymore and—seriously or not—took to Twitter to challenge the back to a fight.

Gurley, most likely even less enthused about his numbers than Mr. Stone, accepted.

The Twitter troll came back with a solid response, which I guess is something you can get away with if you're confident enough in being such a generic nobody that Gurley wouldn't notice you the street.
