3FL Notes: S15: Week 3 Preview

Our second week had considerably more drama than our first (despite the league scoring the exact same number of points). For starters we had our first tie of the season. And the Phenoms earned their first ever 3FL win by posting the high weekly total and the blowout of the week (which is easier to do when you play against the team that scored 14 points).

Get ready for the last of our first set of intra-divisional games and the final full-roster games before the bye weeks start!

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Phys. Ed. Phenoms - 81 points

Player MVPs:
Ben Roethlisberger (QB/Pit/tH) - 29 points
Tom Brady (QB/NE/M) - 25 points
Carson Palmer (QB/Ari/PEP) - 25 points

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Don't look now, but the 'Morons just took over the top spot in the league. And now they have LeVeon Bell back on the field. Coach Drew will have to deal with a bunch of injuries and the matchups will make this closer than you think, but it just depends on who picks the correct starters.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Also don't look now, but the CAPS have won seven in a row (going all the way back to week 12 of last season). I feel like I've said that before. After a dramatic MNF tie last week Coach Val and new QB Marcus Mariota will try to stop that winning streak from getting any longer. It's looking like the Steelers hookup holds the cards.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Would you believe me if I told you that Aaron Rodgers' 3FL team is 0-2 and in 10th place in the league right now? It's true, but maybe this week is where the 'Bums snap out of it and mount a MNF comeback. And if they play a TE. It's good to have one of those on the team.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
It's not like Romo ever saw the Marauders' starting lineup, but maybe it wasn't too bad of a decision to take Brady with the very next pick, right? Either way Coach Hoss is undefeated while FitzCorp's WR/WR strategy has yet to get a win. Perhaps this is the week now that the Bradford experiment seems to be temporarily over.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
These teams don't have a single win between them and SpiVi just made the list for least points scored in a week. Don't expect only 14 points from them again this week (in fact, Luck might score more than that by himself), but the Brew Crew is looking pretty strong. As long as their RBs actually play in their NFL games.

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Predacons
What a way to get their first win. PEP outscored everyone to leave no doubt about the victory, and now they look to go 2-0 and jump to the top of the West. All those Preds Ps and Qs are going to make it difficult to stop that from happening, but it might just come down to a dramatic prime time comeback.

Good luck this week.
