Sept. 16 (UPI) — You might be glued to your computer screen, trying to figure out if Odell Beckham Jr. will be in your Week 2 fantasy lineup, but Beckham doesn’t care.
“No offense,” Beckham tweeted. “I could care less about ur fantasy teams. This is my Real Life. Focusing on gettin healthy and gettin better. 1 day at a time.”
Beckham, 24, is officially listed as questionable for the Giants’ game Monday night against the Detroit Lions. He was limited in practice this week.

If he doesn’t come back until six to eight weeks after the original time of the injury, that would put his return date sometime in early to mid October.
The three-time Pro Bowl selection is a consensus first round pick every year in fantasy football drafts and helps many team owners win their weekly matchups, but Beckham is part of a growing trend of NFL stars stepping out in opposition to the game.
“I don’t care about your fantasy football team,” Bennett tweeted. “Thanks! Sincerely real life football guy.”
Bennett then got into some debate with fantasy football experts from various sports networks.
Fantasy sports are worth $7.22 billion and about 60 million people play in the United States, according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.
