I was wondering the same thing.

Is the deliberate contact a ploy to make the defender lean into it thinking the screener is setting hard - so that when the screener slips it and pop out they theoretically have more space and confuse the defender?

Either way, I've been finding it interesting.

Glad I'm not the only one that picked up on it and I'm not completely insane!!
