3FL Notes: Week 1 Preview

Can Coach Skrabby defend the title? Will ray ray haw return to greatness? Are the Predacons finally going to miss the playoffs? Only the 3FL season will have the answers...

It all starts on Thursday night!
Remember to have your starting lineups set 5 minutes before the games start this week. Any players in the Dolphins vs. Steelers game will be locked in whichever lineup position you have them at 8:25pm EDT on Thursday.

Voting is Back!
You can once again vote on who YOU think will win each 3FL game. Click on "Matchup" beside the games on our main page and vote for the winner at the bottom. I'm assuming that votes need to be in before the Thursday night game, so vote soon. I'll keep a tally again this year and we can see how the predictions turn out. It won’t take you long...



Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: Miami Dolphins @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Sunday Night: Indianapolis Colts @ New York Giants
Monday Night Early: Minnesota Vikings @ Washington Redskins
Monday Night Late: San Diego Chargers @ Oakland Raiders
Bye Week: None until week 3



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 1:
The first week is always the toughest to predict, but here goes...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Things are getting interesting in this dim-witted matchup. The tables have turned with some off the field news and the installation of Charlie Batch as a starting fantasy QB. Roethlisberger's Appendectomy: 0. Baltimorons: 1.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
This one should be as close as they come, but the Preds get the nod because their RBs aren't sharing time. Or are they? We may have to wait until late on Monday night to see if the Lightning can come charging back.

The Comfy Chair (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Vipers were unlucky in not being able to attend the live draft. It's a good thing that they just signed up for all of the high speed internet they can handle. There is going to be a bunch of add/dropping to do, especially after meeting last year's champ in week one.

Marauders (-1) vs. ray ray haw
After last year's disappointing season, Coach Haw could use an early pick-me-up. But his new HDTV will be set up just in time for to watch Clinton Portis run away with this one for the Marauders. If Portis is deactivated (shoulder) though, I'm changing my pick.

Rough Riders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Even though Coach Bev is starting early with leaving starting spots empty, her sneaky good WRs give her an edge. Is anyone else excited to see that these two are going to play each other twice this season? A twin billing? Get it? I'll stop now.

And the game of the week...

Misfits (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brew Crew had a great draft, but Coach Jules and the External Consultant have some soft matchups this week. Either way, neither of these teams will know what happened until Tuesday morning. That 10:15pm MNF game is past everyone's bedtime.

Good Luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 6!
