Coach Talk
WarEagle
Way to shrug off that two-game winless streak, WarEagle! Every fantasy GM is sure to be hit with adversity somewhere along the way... keep on truckin' and remember that this season is far from over.
SAWTOOTHS
Listen up, SAWTOOTHS! There's still a ton of time left to turn this season around. Your upcoming opponents could look at the win-loss record and foolishly think they've got an easy matchup. Use that to your advantage and deploy your strongest possible starting lineups... catch those complacent GMs snoozing!
