Last night, Todd Gurley rushed for 38 yards on 14 carries in the Los Angeles Rams 24-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. It was a pretty typical performance for Gurley this year, as he’s been a colossal bust for fantasy football owners.

Coming into the season, he was a consensus first round pick, but he’s rushed for an extremely underwhelming 778 yards and five TDs through 14 games. A frustrated Gurley owner finally reached his boiling point, going on Twitter to let Gurley know that he’s ready to fight him over all of these lackluster stat lines.

I usually hate when fantasy football owners go after their players on social media, but I’m siding with Cody on this one. That tweet was actually pretty funny, and as a fellow Gurley owner, the struggle was very real this year. I feel your pain, brother.

Gurley seemed willing to oblige Cody with his request for violence, as he replied with a short and sweet response.

It looked like it was curtains for Cody after that, but he came through with an excellent clap back.

Cody with the checkmate! Judging from Gurley’s stats, it would take him roughly three weeks and 48 carries for him to finally meet up with Cody. What a bum.
