Coach Talk
The ‘I’m Here’ Kid
Identifying mismatches is a big component to winning in football. With some monster yardage production from our running backs, our team created a big disparity this week. Our three starting backs recorded 91 more total yards than the RBs on FantasyFootball Team (265 yards from scrimmage to 174), as we ultimately tripled them at the position (60.5 points to 19.4).
FantasyFootball Team
Unless FantasyFootball Team wants to go full diva-mode, then "not getting many opportunities" doesn't fly as an excuse this time around. Our pass-catching corps (two WR, one TE) were targeted a hearty 24 times in Week 1. Chemistry and timing seem to be issues as that group notched only 14 catches.
