Coach Talk

Suburban Saints
We're wondering if the GM of Suburban Saints was feeling a bit squeamish this one? In a matchup that was ultimately decided by only 1 point, Greg Zuerlein (0-of-1 on the day) decided that going 1-for-1 on field goals would've been just a bit too dull. Remember kids, every point matters!
THE GATEKEEPERS
Welp, we certainly can't gripe about a shortage of opportunities this week, can we? As a group, our five pass-catchers (four WR, one TE) were targeted a respectable 33 times in Week 14. With just 20 total receptions, this group may be showing signs of chemistry issues.
