Coach Talk
CardinalFan
Nice job overcoming that two-game winless skid, CardinalFan! Every fantasy GM is sure to be met with adversity at some point or another... keep on truckin' and good things will continue to happen.
Gareth
"Not getting enough chances" shouldn't really be an excuse this week for Gareth. Our pass-catching corps (four WR and one TE) collectively got a grand total of 33 targets in Week 12. With just 17 total receptions, that group may be showing signs of chemistry issues.
