Fantasy sports may be wildly popular among NFL fans, but Miami wide receiver Mike Wallace is concerned that they are eroding the traditional fan experience.

Wallace spoke with USA Today for an article about the increasing popularity of daily fantasy games, and he voiced his opposition to growing impact of fantasy sports on the NFL.

"I think it made fans worry about the game in the wrong way," Wallace said. "I think they worry more about how you're performing for their fantasy team than you really actually do the win. ... I think it kind of ruins the real fan part of the football game."

Wallace is not the first athlete to voice his concern with the fantasy sports, with 49ers receiver Stevie Johnson pointing out the difficulty of dealing with angry fantasy fans earlier this season on Twitter.
