49ers Wideout Stevie Johnson Drafts Work Fantasy Team On Twitter, Gets Incredible Responses

If you really stop and think about it, it’s a little weird that we have a wildy popular game and points system based on work performance, even though that work performance happens to take place in front of 80,000 people each Sunday. It’s like way, way back in the beginning of “The League” when Ruxin meets Antonio Gates at a hotel spa and screams at him for over-performing against his team, it’s easy to forget that these are real people who are basically just doing a job. You write TPS reports, they catch touchdowns. They crush quarterbacks, you crush an entire burrito in less than five minutes. It’s that simple. So with that in mind, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Stevie Johnson decided to take a different approach to drafting a fantasy team.

Dear God, why didn’t we think of that? That’s pure gold.

He then took peoples’ responses and gave them some fantasy point values.

Fucking Jaff, man. Every time.

Who knew that Stevie Johnson was a fan of “Office Space”?

In this case, does IR = Workman’s Comp?

Man loves Hot Pockets. Gotta give it up for that.

Stealing a high school crush, then bragging about it on Twitter. Power move.

And, finally, he kept it real:

At the end of the day, it’s all about the kids.
