Clark's Swell Team
Nice job deploying a lineup that won by more than 16 points this past week. We consider that to be a job well done. We should tip our cap to the GM of War Admiral, take this win in stride, and continue on our way towards a fantasy championship.
With only four receptions this past week, the starting running backs for War Admiral obviously should smooth things over with their quarterbacks... and remind them to start checking down more often.
