The Phantom Limbs
Listen The Phantom Limbs, the good news is that we took this matchup by more than nine points. Even better news is that we know we're better than this... as a matter of fact, our team's scoring average through 12 weeks was 94.24. So yes, we're happy to have earned this victory, but let's also get back up to where we know we can be!
It's entirely possible that HOTDISH HOOLIGANS could be a better talent scout in real football than in fantasy. Accumulating only 10 targets combined in Week 13, their three starting pass-catchers (two WR, one TE) apparently made most of their contributions by running decoy routes and blocking downfield.
