Kaufman in First Place in Terminator

Over in another one of the unique FFPC formats, the Terminator Tournament, Jason Kaufman's Gametime squad tallied a 205.55 thanks to the likes of Henry, Jefferson, Deshaun Watson's 35.35, Rob Gronkowski's 21.3 and Amari Cooper's 20.9. He now leads the competition by 27.8 points over the second-place RunRaplhieRun team, managed by Benjamin Rosen.
