FiveThirtyEight says LAFC BETTER (?!) than some EPL teams??

They have them listed at 127th, ahead of Brighton, Fulham, and Huddersfield (granted, 2 of the 3 are going to be relegated). This is the highest I've seen an MLS club ranked, putting them in the thick of some European tier one clubs. Can we take anything from this? I'm extremely skeptical that MLS has produced a club that would be able to compete in the top leagues in the world.

Although, IF we beat LAFC June 1st I will declare this ranking to be legitimate and declare the Timbers to be EPL quality.
