The Elite received a big shout out on the NFL Network on Thursday.
NFL Network fantasy football analyst Adam Rank was discussing his favorite picks of the week when he mentioned noted wrestling fan, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. While discussing Kittle's value, Rank made multiple references to members of The Elite.
“Obviously this Young Buck has done a pretty good job of joining The Elite of the fantasy community. He’s got the Bears this week, which is a kind of an American Nightmare for fantasy enthusiasts. He might be a Villain, going up against my Bears, I truly believe this guy can Hang, man. He's been a Cleaner at the tight end position in the NFL. For George Kittle, I’m All In.”
The Elite, and Kittle, took notice of the segment and reacted on Twitter.
