Oh look at Heath, not drafting an Elite and still managing to win the week. What a cool guy. Man I wish I could be more like him. He’s lucky I don’t disqualify him this week for not playing by the rules. Almost makes it seem like he cheated to win. Hmmmmm. We’re going to have to do some internal investigation here to see whether this week should count for Heath.

In other news, I hate this game and it’s stupid.

Last week’s biggest ding donger: Adam Duvall (5)
