Example text

He breaks off a 25-yarder on his second tote of the day. He even catches a couple screen passes during the team’s second drive. It’s all coming together. Good decisions lead to good outcomes. The world makes so much sense in this moment. Until it doesn’t. Our runner is slowly fazed out of the game as his team goes down by three touchdowns at the half, and enters the fourth quarter down by 27. He benefits from a couple receptions on the game’s final garbage time drive, enough to end the day with eight measly fantasy points.
