Slayton (5 Rec, 154 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs) scored 32.4 points in a 23-17 lost to the Eagles in Week 14.

Slayton ranks #90 among all fantasy players this season and will face the Dolphins next week.
Hey, we'll definitely take the win, Enforcers! Having said that, if we want to ramp our performance up to the next level, then we have found an area to improve. Our starting running backs were clearly outmatched by the opposition. Jamaal Williams (24 yards from scrimmage, no TDs) and Mark Ingram II (79 yards, no TDs) combined for only 13.3 points in Week 14. Todd Gurley II and Austin Ekeler nearly quadrupled us with a score of 52.6.
Chin up, ExigentCircumstances! There are plenty of lessons we can take away from this season and apply to next year... it's never too early to start strategizing and thinking about where to improve!
