Back-and-forth battle ends with YUP coming back to knock off Europe's finest, 130.10-122.54
What a battle! After a back-and-forth matchup featuring three lead changes, YUP earned a come-from-behind win over Europe's finest, staging a comeback to earn a 130.10-122.54 victory. YUP trailed 122.54-119.10 heading into Monday night, but the team staged a comeback behind Kadarius Toney (7 Rec, 40 Rec Yds). Austin Ekeler (50 Rush Yds, 2 Rush TDs, 65 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs) and Elijah Moore (15 Rush Yds, 141 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD) led the way for Europe's finest in the loss. YUP (6-5) will look to build on their success against Chinese Bandits, while Europe's finest (3-8) will face Space Monkey Mafia in an effort to get some positive momentum.
There were multiple players with standout moments for both teams early Sunday, but it was YUP who owned the lead, 103.40-69.94. Aaron Rodgers had a 75-yard touchdown pass and a 25-yard touchdown pass for YUP, while Darnell Mooney had a 60-yard touchdown catch. Meanwhile, Elijah Moore had a 62-yard touchdown catch for Europe's finest, while Carson Wentz had a 23-yard touchdown pass.
Gaskin (89 Rush Yds) scored 18.6 points in a 24-17 win over the Jets in Week 11. His scoring output was 67.1% more than his 11.13-point projection and was much higher than his 12.2-point season scoring average. Gaskin ranks #76 among all fantasy players this season and will face the Panthers next week.
Week 12 will feature two squads heading in different directions, as YUP (6-5) enter the matchup on a two-game unbeaten streak, while their Week 12 opposition (Chinese Bandits, 5-6), come in having lost three in a row. YUP might need to rearrange the deck some with Clyde Edwards-Helaire out on bye in Week 12. Over the last three weeks, YUP have put up 112.66 points per game, while Chinese Bandits have averaged 94.99 per contest.
Looking ahead to Week 12, Europe's finest (3-8, 11th-place) are due to take on Space Monkey Mafia (7-4, fourth-place). Europe's finest might have to shuffle the deck some with Rondale Moore out on bye in Week 12. Space Monkey Mafia won't have A.J. Green, Christian Kirk, or Kyler Murray.
