O.J. Simpson was back to dropping advice online late Sunday night.

The legendary running back, who beat a double murder charge, was doubling down on his praise of Patrick Mahomes.

In a bit of a surprise, the Juice had more than enough info to back up his claim you should take Mahomes right away, which is a bit of a taboo thought in fantasy football. Drafting quarterbacks in the first round is not recommended. (RELATED: O.J. Simpson Denies Having Sex With Kris Jenner, Says All The Stories Are ‘Bogus’)

However, after listening to Simpson, I must admit he made a hell of a lot of sense. Watch it below.

Two things I want to point out here. First, that video has been up for just under 12 hours and is closing in a million views.

It’s insane how much Simpson moves the needle all these years after leaving the NFL. I guess getting accused of murdering your ex-wife and then beating the charges in the most polarizing case in recent American history will do that for your reputation.

Secondly, does O.J. actually spend a ton of time thinking about fantasy football? He was rattling off stats like he was on ESPN during a pregame broadcast.

Whether you hate him or love him, the man seems to know his stuff when it comes to fantasy football. That’s honestly never a sentence I thought I’d write, but here we are.

If you’re not loving the Juice being on Twitter, then you’re just not paying attention. The man, who was acquitted of those awful accusations, has literally become the best follow in a matter of days.

I can’t wait to see what advice or absurd takes he has to offer next.
