3FL Notes: Week 1 Preview

Can the HAW win a fifth SuperBowl title? Will two-thirds of the league keep a generic Yahoo! helmet as a logo? Can there be any peace in the Renegades/Phenoms household? Only the 3FL season will have these answers...

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

Coach Thadtotti once again crafted our customized schedule. Divisional games will be played in weeks 1-3 and 11-13 and week 11 will be our rivalry week. Thanks, SpreadsheetGeek.

Voting is up and running for the season. Make sure you vote on all the 3FL games before the beginning of tomorrow night's NFL game.

Here we go!



Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots
Sunday Night: New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night Early: Philadelphia Eagles @ Atlanta Falcons
Monday Night Late: Minnesota Vikings @ San Francisco 49ers
Bye Week: None until week 4



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

the HAW (-1/2) vs Yuengling Brewers
The Big Ben to Antonio Brown hookup is going to reward the CAPS with a lot of points this season, just maybe not this week. They can still take this one, though, depending on the health of Mike Evans and Eli's play on Sunday night.

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Baltimorons
The 'Morons might have drafted six RBs, but the top two are officially out this week and two more are Q and P respectively. Let's just make sure that Coach Drew swaps out players before Le'Veon Bell is locked in with a zero beside his name.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Will Andrew Luck live up the expectations of being the #1 pick? SpiVi has put a lot of faith in his QB and his TE while the Preds went all in with a bunch of RBs. We'll see which strategy delivers a win to start the season, but this one won't be decided until early on Tuesday morning.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
We haven't had a new team debut in the 3FL in 12 years so this is kind of a big deal. Of course the Marauders aren't concerned with rolling out the red carpet. And Tom Brady is bound to be angry tomorrow night.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
This Stompers team is better than you think - Peyton Manning and AP and the Seahawks highlight Coach Bev's swirly helmet squad. They are favored by the slimmest of margins, but Sam Bradford could surprise everyone (except Coach Tim-A) and give FitzCorp a divisional win to start the season.

And the game of the week...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Everything is even in this one so it should be a fun first GOTW to watch. It will be exciting from Thursday night all the way through Monday's late game, even though Coach Val won't be awake to find out the result.

Good luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 15!
