Despite top scorer Newton, Rookie fall to Aaron's Amazing Team in 101.28-100.58 battle
Cam Newton accumulated 35.58 points for Rookie, the best total in the matchup and third-highest in the league this week, but it wasn't enough to vanquish Aaron's Amazing Team, who narrowly earned a 101.28-100.58 victory. Rookie had a chance to come from behind on Monday night, but they came up short. Aaron's Amazing Team led 101.28-84.28 after Sunday's action and held on for the win despite 16.3 points from Darren Waller on Monday night for Rookie. Aaron's Amazing Team were led by Christian McCaffrey (20.8 points) and Miles Sanders (17.1). Aaron's Amazing Team (2-0) will look to earn another W against Nick's Notable Team, while Rookie (0-2) match up against Second half scrubs in an effort to earn their first victory.
Fairbairn (3-3 FG, 45 long, 1-1 XP) scored 12 points against the Ravens in Week 2. His scoring output was 56.3% more than his 7.68-point projection. Fairbairn will face the Steelers next week.
Aaron's Amazing Team
Earning the win is most important, Aaron's Amazing Team, but we definitely know of one spot where we can get stronger as a team. Our QB was utterly outplayed by the opposition. Cam Newton went 30-of-44 for 397 yards and one touchdowns for Rookie, and all Teddy Bridgewater could manage through the air was 367 passing yards and two ugly interceptions. We need to spend some extra time this week working with our receivers!
Ugh, talk about old-school ground n' pound. The starting RBs for Rookie collectively logged only a couple of catches on four measly targets this past week. Get those quarterbacks to check down a little more often in Week 3!
