Daniel's Team knock off GIRISH's Team in 151.20-103.14 rout
Despite identical records, GIRISH's Team held a significant season point advantage over Daniel's Team coming into this one (959-724). But the trend wouldn't continue this week with Daniel's Team cruising to a 151.20-103.14 victory. GIRISH's Team jumped out to a 23.04-point lead on Thursday behind Kyler Murray, who passed for 241 yards and 2 touchdowns and ran for 34 yards. But it was all Daniel's Team after that. They were led by Mike Evans (30 points) and Melvin Gordon III (24.4). Daniel's Team (2-7) will look to keep it rolling against Eliyar's Expert Team, while GIRISH's Team (2-7) meet Andres's Best Team in an effort to get back on track.

Coach Talk
Daniel's Team
Listen, Daniel's Team, we do admire the confidence. Deploying a starter with zero points (Andrew Luck), while still getting a W... that's a bit too risky for us traditionalists. Try that type of flashy, show-off stuff next week against Eliyar's Expert Team and we're sure to be toast.
GIRISH's Team
Unless GIRISH's Team wants to go full diva-mode, then "not seeing many looks" cannot be a viable excuse this time around. Our trio of pass-catchers (two WR, one TE) were targeted a respectable 13 times in Week 9. With only eight total catches, that group may need to work on chemistry with their QBs.
