Coach Talk
Space Monkey Mafia
Hey Space Monkey Mafia, the good news is that we took this matchup by more than one points. The better news is that we've proven we're even better than this, as our scoring average through Week 12 stood at 121.86. So while we're happy to have earned this victory, let's get back up to where we know we can be!
St.louis 2
Well, Week 13's problem was pretty easy to diagnose, St.louis 2. Going with Darrell Henderson Jr., D'Andre Swift, and Wayne Gallman Jr. in a fantasy matchup where every point mattered... let's all put this in the rear-view mirror and assume something like this won't be happening again.
