Speaking of Sagan, what’s his deal anyway?

Everyone talks like he’s the most talented rider in the peloton, the dominant sprinter, etc. But he never contends for the overall TdF. He’s in like 60th place. I know he’s got the green jersey and wins all those points for sprints, but he’s not a factor for the yellow jersey. Just seems kinda chicken$hit. If he’s so good, why doesn’t he try to win the race? Instead, he just hangs around waits for sprint opportunities, while other guys (Alaphilippe, Thomas, Pinot) are actually trying to win the whole thing. Sagan seems like a golfer who finishes in 25th place, then brags that he had the longest drives.
