49ers WR Stevie Johnson’s funny ‘fantasy work’ tweet inspires hysterical replies
There’s probably very little that pro athletes despise more than getting tweets from regular people about their fantasy production.
Who knows why "fans" think players care about fantasy sports when they are getting paid millions of dollars to perform in something real, but that’s Twitter for you.
On Wednesday, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Stevie Johnson gave his Twitter followers a taste of their own medicine with this well-crafted tweet:
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.

Johnson’s followers then came through with some witty and creative replies of their own. Check out the sampling below:
