Coach Talk
The Dominators
We do admire the confidence this past week, The Dominators. Deploying a player with zero points (John Brown), while still getting the win... that's a bit too risky for us traditionalists. We just ask you to please limit those flashy shenanigans to the early regular season. Can you imagine how silly we'd look if we let it happen in the playoffs?
The Placebo Arm
Fortunately, The Placebo Arm, this week's problem is fairly easy to diagnose. Going with the San Francisco 49ers defense in a fantasy matchup where your opponent tallied 103.68 points... let's try to play with a full deck of cards next time?
