Didn't take long for Fantasy Football owners to forgive Ray Rice -- because just hours after he was reinstated, Ray has become the MOST picked up player in Yahoo! fantasy leagues.
As we previously reported, Ray's fantasy stock sank like a stone after TMZ Sports published the inside-the-elevator footage back in September.
But now, according to Yahoo! "Transaction Trends" page, Ray has already been added to more than 168,000 fantasy teams ... the #1 added player today ... BY FAR.
In fact, the #2 guy is Vikings running back Matt Asiata who was added to 14,000 teams.
Funny thing is ... Ray hasn't been signed to a real team yet.
Clearly, 168k people think he'll find a new squad before the season ends.
