For a large segment of NFL fans – and even some who aren’t avid followers of the sport – fantasy football is a way of life. Third-year Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson was the top player taken in many fantasy drafts after racking up 2,118 yards from scrimmage and 20 touchdowns, both league highs, in 2016. On Wednesday, Johnson chatted with reporters for the first time since his injury, and apparently was asked if he’s thinking about those who have him on their fantasy teams.

Last week, the Detroit Lions asked a season-ticket holder to surrender his tickets after he disparaged African-American fans near him during the team’s home opener on Snapchat, calling them “ignorant [racial slur]” because they sat during the anthem. The tickets, of course, would wind up in someone else’s hands, but one fan asked the team if he could buy them and let the tickets go to a better cause. Andy Morse, a 30-year old from Warren, Michigan, approached the team and asked if he could buy the tickets and let charities around Wayne County, where Detroit is located, use them.
