Coach Talk
MGKVSBRD
This sport is all about creating mismatches. Fueled by a thrilling showing by Patrick Mahomes, we tripled Nerd Herd at the quarterback position this past week (40 points to 12.74). Mahomes had his way against the Ravens defense, going 31-of-42 for 385 yards and four passing TDs.
Nerd Herd
Unless Nerd Herd wants to go diva-mode on us, then "not seeing enough chances" doesn't fly as an excuse this time around. As a group, our pass-catching corps (three WR and one TE) collectively received a grand total of 21 targets in Week 3. With only 13 total catches, that group may be showing signs of chemistry issues.
