DefeatU come up short of predictions, succumb to Deborah's Team in 116.10-94.62 rout
DefeatU underachieved compared to their projected point total, as Deborah's Team cruised to a 116.10-94.62 victory. Deborah's Team pulled out to a 7.90-point lead on Thursday behind the Buffalo Bills defense (11 points) and Alvin Kamara (10.4) and never let it go. Davante Adams (6 Rec, 64 Rec Yds, 2 Rec TDs) and Darren Waller (7 Rec, 100 Rec Yds) led the way for DefeatU in the loss. This marks the second time this season Deborah's Team have beaten DefeatU, after winning 101.5-97.44 in their last matchup. Deborah's Team (8-5) will look to build on their success against Alex's Team, while DefeatU (6-7) will try to generate some positive momentum against Willis.
Johnson (36 Rush Yds, 54 Rec Yds, 1 Rec TD) scored 17.5 points against the Patriots in Week 13. His scoring output more-than-doubled his 6.94-point projection and was much higher than his 8.22-point season scoring average. Johnson will face the Broncos next week.
Spotting mismatches is a huge component to winning in football. Thanks to a thrilling performance by Carson Wentz, we doubled up DefeatU at the quarterback position this past week (25.4 points to 10.72). Wentz went 28-for-46 for 310 yards, three TDs, and an INT in a 37-31 loss to the Dolphins.
Here's a list of scenarios where it's excusable to go 0-for-2 in sports: A hitter's line in baseball, a pair of Shaquille O'Neal free throws, and a double-fault in tennis. That's basically it. Going 0-for-2 on field goal attempts this past week? Seems like Brett Maher may have just kicked himself to the waiver wire following this effort.
