NFL Uses Jamaal Charles' Injury to Get More Fantasy Football Users

Is it me or is does something about this ad feel wrong? Should the NFL use Jamaal Charles' season-ending knee injury to get more people to sign up for their fantasy leagues?

I'm thinking no. 

Maybe instead of putting a sad and concerned photo of Jamaal Charles, a real-life NFL player, not a fake pile of fantasy stats next to the text "Injury Ruined Your Fantasy Season?", they should be promoting one of the best young running backs in the league in as positive of a light as possible.

Do you think they would run this ad with a photo of Peyton Manning in a neck halo? I doubt it.
