DITKA knock off Randy Ableman in 123.46-77.46 rout
DITKA stepped up and outperformed expectations, cruising to a 123.46-77.46 victory over Randy Ableman, who fell short of projections. Randy Ableman pulled out to a 0.60-point lead on Thursday, but it was all DITKA after that. They were led by Lamar Jackson (324 Pass Yds, 5 Pass TDs) and Christian McCaffrey (128 Rush Yds, 2 Rush TDs, 81 Rec Yds). T.Y. Hilton (8 Rec, 87 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs) and Alvin Kamara (97 Rush Yds, 72 Rec Yds) led the charge for Randy Ableman in the loss. DITKA (1-0) will look to earn another W against Sesquipedantic Squad, while Randy Ableman (0-1) will try to earn their first victory against Voodoo Mama Juju.
Lamar Jackson had an 83-yard touchdown pass and a 47-yard touchdown pass for DITKA, contributing to an 81.36-10.86 lead for the team.
Marlon Mack had a 63-yard touchdown run for DITKA, contributing to a 107.46-56.56 lead for the team.
Alvin Kamara had a 41-yard catch for Randy Ableman.
Mack ran for 174 yards and a touchdown as the Colts lost to the Chargers 30-24. In doing so, he put up 25.4 points to more-than-double his 10.77-point projection, the highest percent increase of any player on DITKA this week. Mack will face the Titans next week.
The key to success in football is spotting (and exploiting) the mismatches. Thanks to a thrilling display by Lamar Jackson, we thoroughly outplayed Randy Ableman at the quarterback position this past week (33.56 points to 6.36). Jackson went 17-for-20 for 324 yards and five TDs in a 59-10 victory over the Dolphins.
Unless Randy Ableman wants to go full diva-mode, then "not getting many opportunities" isn't really a valid excuse this time around. Our pass-catching corps (three WR and one TE) combined to receive a hearty 27 targets in Week 1. Timing and chemistry appear to be issues as that group hauled in just 16 catches.
