Coach Talk
Red Storm
Mission accomplished, Red Storm. Nice job deploying a team that recorded over 190 points this past week. We should maintain this momentum as we roll into a tricky matchup in Week 15.
Manager-less Team
There's a decent chance that Manager-less Team might be a better talent scout in the NFL than in fantasy football. Seeing only 13 total targets in Week 14, their four starting pass-catchers (three WR, one TE) apparently helped their teams' causes by running decoy routes and blocking downfield.
