A report by Dallas Morning News writer Tommy Magelssen states that aKm will split time with Taimou this week.
Dallas Morning News Assistant Sports Editor Tommy Magelssen reported today that the Fuel gave Dylan "aKm" Bignet this week off to take care of some family issues. Head coach of the Dallas Fuel, Aaron "Aero" Atkins told the Dallas Morning News that "some family stuff is going on at home".
In Bignet's absence, Timo "Taimou" Kettunen played the whole match against the L.A. Valiant last week, and, according to Magelssen, will split time with Bignet in this coming week.
Since I'll be playing the role of @DallasFuel beat writer for the next month, here's some news: @DF_aKm was out last week because of a family issue, his coach told me. He had week off. Expect aKm to return and split time with Taimou on DPS this week. https://t.co/ch0RXj04XT

The Fuel is Up Against the Wall This Week
Dallas Fuel can only lose one more match if they want to be eligible for Season playoffs, but with Chengdu performing out of their minds this past weekend, they have their work set out for them. The 2-2-2 Role Lock meta has been beneficial for the Dallas Fuel, allowing players like Bignet and Kettunen to play pilot something other than a tank hero.
The Dallas Fuel's Season 2 has been a rollercoaster of emotions, but their time to buckle down is now. After numerous roster changes, a successful Homestand and the 2-2-2 role lock, the Dallas Fuel needs everything to go perfectly if they don't want to end up on the wrong side of the Playoff cutoff line. Stage 4 has not been great for the Fuel, as they lost both of their games against the London Spitfire and the Los Angeles Valiant.
