Sesquepedantic Squad knock BOOM! from top spot in 111.40-53.44 rout
Sesquepedantic Squad rolled to a 111.40-53.44 victory over BOOM!, knocking them out of the No. 1 position in Hiawatha Premier League. The matchup was decided before it really even started, as Sesquepedantic Squad leapt out to a 54.5-point lead early Sunday afternoon behind impressive performances from Patrick Mahomes (30.7 points) and Travis Kelce (16.8). Dalvin Cook (65 Rush Yds, 1 Rush TD, 24 Rec Yds) and Dak Prescott (166 Pass Yds, 11 Rec Yds) led the way for BOOM! in the loss. Sesquepedantic Squad (3-2) will look to build on their success against Jake's Swag Team, while BOOM! (3-2) will try to get back on track against Quaran-TEAM.
Kelce overachieved for the second time this season, scoring 16.8 points against his 11.07-point projection. In a 40-32 loss to the Raiders, he caught 8 passes for 108 yards and a touchdown. Kelce ranks #41 among all fantasy players this season and will face the Bills next week.
Hey, finding mismatches is the key to football, right? Thanks to a solid outing by Patrick Mahomes, we doubled up BOOM! at the quarterback position this past week (30.7 points to 13.44). Mahomes went 22-for-43 for 340 yards, two TDs, and an INT in a 40-32 loss to the Raiders.
Fortunately, BOOM!, this week's problem isn't exactly a brain teaser. Choosing to start the San Francisco 49ers defense in a fantasy matchup where your opposition put up over 111 points... let's aim to play with a full deck of cards next time?
