Roddy White thinks his fantasy team is the real victim of the Adrian Peterson case


As the worst week in NFL history comes to a close, we wrap things up with Falcons receiver Roddy White winning the award for the worst response to the Adrian Peterson indictment.

When White heard that Peterson has been indicted for injuring his 4-year-old son, White’s concerns weren’t for the boy, or anyone else connected to the case. White’s concerns were for his own fantasy football team.

“I’m probably going to lose my fantasy football matchup this week cause all day can’t play Sunday for disciplining his child Jesus help us,” White wrote on Twitter.

White later deleted the tweet. The rest of us will try to delete it from our memory. And think back to a better time, when White was just using Twitter to weasel out of March Madness bets.

UPDATE 9:15 p.m. ET: White has now tweeted, “I should not have made light of a very serious situation. I understand the strong feelings about this issue and i shouldn’t have said that.”
