Chinese Bandits earn win against Europe's finest in 170.56-88.24 beatdown
Chinese Bandits outperformed expectations, cruising to a 170.56-88.24 win over Europe's finest, who fell short of projections. Chinese Bandits grabbed an early 6.66-point lead on Thursday. Europe's finest came back to take the lead early afternoon Sunday, powered by Eli Mitchell (7.3 points) and Robby Anderson (6.8). Not to be deterred, Chinese Bandits got it going later that afternoon, as Tyler Lockett (31.8 points) and Justin Jefferson (18.5) put them back on top once and for all. Chinese Bandits (2-0) will look to get another W against Dirty Gunslinger, while Europe's finest (0-2) will attempt to get some positive momentum against St.louis 2.
Taylor Heinicke had a 56-yard pass for Europe's finest for the team, who trailed 27.70-21.04 after Thursday Night Football.
Tyler Lockett had a 63-yard touchdown catch and a 51-yard catch for Chinese Bandits to contribute to a 97.70-88.24 lead for the team.
Lamar Jackson had a 42-yard touchdown pass for Chinese Bandits, helping the team to a 143.26-88.24 lead.
While catching 8 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown against the Titans, Lockett registered 31.8 points this week. He scored 79.7% more than his 17.7-point projection in the 33-30 loss. Lockett ranks #7 among all fantasy players this season and will face the Vikings next week.
Whoa, Chinese Bandits, you really made a statement to the rest of the league with this shellacking. Not only did you win by 82+ points, you also jumped up from fifth place to second in the league standings!
Unless Europe's finest wants to go diva-mode on us, then "not getting enough looks" isn't really a reasonable excuse this time around. Our pass-catching corps (four WR, one TE) collectively saw a grand total of 29 targets in Week 2. Timing and chemistry appear to be issues as that group hauled in only 15 balls.
