We do appreciate the confidence this past week, Daniel's Team. Deploying a player with zero points (Andrew Luck), while still earning the W... talk about arrogant! All we ask is to please limit that flashy, show-off type of stuff to the regular season. Can you imagine how silly we'd look if we let it happen in the playoffs?
Welp, we certainly can't complain about a lack of opportunities this week, can we? Our four pass-catchers (three WR and one TE) collectively got a whopping 21 targets in Week 14. With only 10 total receptions, that group may need to work on chemistry with their QBs.
