LeGarrette Blount is not off to a great start with the Philadelphia Eagles. He rushed for 46 yards on 14 carries in a Week 1 victory over Washington. However, for Week 2 coach Doug Pederson opted to give most of the rushing opportunities to Darren Sproles. Blount had just one carry, and that was negated by a penalty.

This is bad news for a lot of fantasy football owners. In 2016 Blount had career highs in carries (299), yards (1,161), and touchdowns (18), the last of which was tops in the NFL. The Eagles signed him in May to help balance the attack behind second-year quarterback Carson Wentz. However, after just one week, Pederson decided to leave Blount on the bench.

On Sunday, following the Eagles’ loss to the Chiefs, a lot of fantasy football owners took to Twitter to complain about Blount’s lack of production.

As we have already pointed out, Blount’s lack of production on Sunday was not his fault. After the game he was in no mood to see a bunch of fantasy football owners fill up his mentions with a bunch of whining and complaining. So he told them all where to stick it:

LeGarrette Blount does not care about your fantasy team, okay?
