Unlike a few more sympathetic fantasy players like Keenan Allen or Le'Veon Bell, Atlanta Falcons running back Brian Hill took a page out of Todd Gurley's book when it comes to his concerns about his own fantasy football owners.

After a rather disappointing follow-up fantasy performance in Week 11 to an intriguing Week 10 showing as a fill-in for Devonta Freeman, Hill made his opinion on the thousands of fantasy owners he disappointed Sunday abundantly clear – he couldn't care less.

The former fifth-round NFL Draft pick averaged only 2.0 yards per carry on 15 rushes for 30 yards, while catching just one pass on three targets for eight yards Sunday.

And he certainly doesn't seem to have any remorse about it either.

Hill became one of the hottest names on the waiver wire ahead of the Falcons' Week 11 matchup with the Carolina Panthers after he tallied 61 rushing yards on 20 carries with one reception for 10 yards and one score through the air in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.

Prior to both his Week 11 letdown and remarks, Hill ranked as our RB22 in The Duel's Week 11 fantasy football standard scoring rankings and RB18 in our Week 11 fantasy football PPR scoring rankings.
