3FL Notes: Week 7 Preview

We're rolling through the halfway point of the year already (remember that there are only 13 games in the regular season).

Last week the league had its highest scoring week of the season (786 points), and we saw the Dumbbums surprise, the Predacons fall and the Comfy Chair remain perfect. What excitement is in store for this week?

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Dumbbums - 98 points

Player MVPs:
LaDanian Tomlinson (RB/SD) - 30 points
Torry Holt (WR/StL) - 25 points
Matt Hasselbeck (QB/Sea) - 24 points

The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 7:

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Lightning
The Lightning have shown some spark as of late, but the Baltimorons are riding even higher after giving the Predacons their first loss of the year. Add that to some good QB and Defense matchups and you've got a winner. If he changes his starters in time.

Rough Riders (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Riders are sneaky good again this year, while the Vipers have been plagued with stellar scoring only from their bench. Depending on Coach Googully's choices, this one will be close, but the Riders appear to have a slight edge in the matchups. If she changes her starters in time.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
A winning streak for the 'Bums? This one will be a nailbiter, right down to the T.O./NYG Defense pairing on Monday Night. After last week's victory, Coach Coaldog proved that his team can run up the score. But can they do it again?

Misfits (-1) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss' team also broke out last week (scoring 96 points), but they appear poised to come back to reality against the Misfits. How is the top scoring 3FL team 2-4 after the first six weeks of the season? I don't know. But I guarantee that they won't make too many more guarantees this season.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. ray ray haw
The upset special of the week. With Ladell Betts (appropriately) back on the bench and a bunch of favorable matchups, the Renegades just might double their victory total this week. Mostly because of the haw's WR bye woes.

And the game of the week...

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This one would be a much more exciting game if Rex Grossman hadn't scored -10 points and the Preds were still undefeated, too. Still, it's going to be the Manning Bowl, 3FL style. Going all the way back to week 13 last year, the Comfy ones have won nine straight games. And with Coach Sinkerbeam's best RBs on a bye, make it ten.

Good luck this week.

Go vote.
