Boomtown Brawlers fall short of projections, succumb to Havoc in 157.8-112.4 rout
Boomtown Brawlers failed to bring their A game, as Havoc cruised to a 157.8-112.4 win. Havoc pulled out to an 18.2-point lead on Thursday behind Kareem Hunt (24.1 points) and never relinquished it. Patrick Mahomes (34.5 points) and Amari Cooper (16) led the charge for Boomtown Brawlers in defeat. Havoc (1-1) will look to add to their success against The Xtreme, while Boomtown Brawlers (0-2) will attempt to get their first W against Blue Falcons.
Both teams had players with standout plays early Sunday, but after the dust settled, Havoc boasted an 89.5-51.7 lead. For Havoc, Raheem Mostert had an 80-yard touchdown run. Amari Cooper had a 58-yard catch for Boomtown Brawlers, while Marquez Valdes-Scantling had a 41-yard catch.
Patrick Mahomes had a 54-yard touchdown pass for Boomtown Brawlers, who trailed 129.5-112.4 after the late afternoon slate.
While allowing 16 points, surrendering 304 yards, and forcing 2 turnovers against the Texans, the Ravens defense put up 15 points this week. They more-than-doubled their 6.83-point projection in the 33-16 win. The Ravens defense ranks #50 among all fantasy players this season and will face the Chiefs next week.
The Baltimore Ravens defense
Hey, we admire the confidence, Havoc. It's a bold move to play a starter with zero points (Anthony Miller), while still getting a W! We just ask you to please limit those flashy shenanigans to the early regular season. Try it when the postseason rolls around, and we'll be done.
Well, we certainly can't complain about a shortage of opportunities this time, can we? Our pass-catching corps (five WR and one TE) were targeted a grand total of 40 times in Week 2. Chemistry and timing appear to be issues as that group hauled in just 20 catches.
