Torrey Smith has taken a swipe at players of the NFL fantasy football game in which players score points depending on the actions of heir roster in real life games.

The Ravens receiver believes that certain people take it too far and took to Twitter to voice his displeasure.

"I hate y'all fantasy folks who are tweeting me about your fake team...y'all make me sick...Ravens win that's all that matters to me" said Smith in one of his tweets.

He was reacting to comments he saw regarding certain players in the game and the fact that some fantasy football participants get too carried away.

"I think fantasy football is awesome for the fans." Smith told "It's a way to interact and be like their own GM, in a sense." said the wide receiver. "But it crosses the line when you wish players harm ... people saying, 'I hope you break your leg because if you score one point ...'"

Although he did admit that he wasn't talking about every fantasy player: "I'm not foolish enough to think it's the entire fantasy world, but it's those few that mess it up."

Smith is expected to play in Sunday's encounter with the new England Patriots. In a match that could be repeated in postseason the Ravens have an eye on the playoffs while the Pats are looking to cement the division title after their loss to the Miami Dolphins last week.

The game that could shape the playoff picture gets underway at 11:25 GMT and is not one to be missed.
