Coach Talk
MGKVSBRD
Identifying mismatches is a big key to success in football. Thanks to a sound outing from Patrick Mahomes, we almost quadrupled Ground Game Keeper at the quarterback position this past week (30.7 points to 7.94). Mahomes went 22-for-43 for 340 yards, two TDs, and an INT in a 40-32 loss to the Raiders.
Ground Game Keeper
There's a possibility that Ground Game Keeper would be a better GM in the NFL than in fantasy football. With only 12 targets as a group this past week, their three starting pass-catchers (two WR, one TE) apparently made most of their contributions by running decoy routes and blocking downfield.
