Fantasy Meets Reality for a Couple of Players

Scroll to the bottom of this recent article in the Detroit Free Press about the Motor Sports Hall of Fame (zzzzz … ), and you’ll find a couple of fun fantasy-related quotes from NFL players.

Tony Gonzalez apparently has some family members who own him in their leagues and feel the need to have heart-to-hearts when he isn’t living up to their standards: “They try to sit me down like they’re my coach: ‘If you’re not going to perform, I’m going to have to cut you. I’m going to have to sit you down this week.’ ”

Dallas receiver Roy Williams doesn’t need family to do the benching. He’s sitting himself in pursuit of fantasy victory: “It’s hard to do, but I’ve got to do it. I’m trying to win.”

If that isn’t a mark against his fantasy value (especially a time when he’s producing better than he has in about two years), I’m not sure what is.
