Did somebody in your fantasy football league recently add Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright? Well, it could be the former Arkansas WR himself.
According to this story by Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Wright wanted to join a fantasy football league for the first time this season after hearing so much about the game.
“I hear everybody always talking about it,” Wright told Vensel. “So I was like, ‘You know what, I’m going to see what this fantasy football thing is all about.’”
Wright joined a random league and drafted his team, including Vikings teammate Stefon Diggs. He didn’t draft himself, as he was inactive in three of Minnesota’s first four games. But now that he’s been on the field, Wright added himself to his roster.
Nobody in the league knows that it’s Wright behind the computer or mobile device.
So far, Wright hasn’t been too impressed with fantasy football.
“It’s not as good as it’s hyped to be,” Wright said, according to Vensel.
Wright will look to get himself some big fantasy points on Monday night when the Vikings, who are 5-1, travel to Chicago to take on the Bears.
So far this season, Wright has four catches for 32 yards.
