3FL Notes: S19: Week 6 Preview

The first F in the 3FL stands for family, and sometimes that is the most important part of our league. Our hearts go out to Coach Greg & Val at this difficult time, and we also celebrate with them as they welcomed a new baby girl to their family. It was all the emotions in one day.

Last week the league saw multiple records broken and a winning streak extended. Make sure you are paying attention this week – there are four teams on a bye and a 9:30am EDT game on Sunday.

Top Scoring 3FL Team: the HAW - 145 points (3rd all-time)

Player MVPs:
Deshaun Watson (QB/Hou/tH) - 42 points
Aaron Jones (RB/GB/MI) - 41 points
Christian McCaffrey (RB/Car/B) - 41 points

Week 6 Information

Thursday Night: New York Giants @ New England Patriots
Sunday Morning: Carolina Panthers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sunday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Los Angeles Chargers
Monday Night: Detroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers
Bye Week: Buffalo, Chicago, Indianapolis, Oakland



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 6:

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The whole Steelers strategy didn't work out too well for the 'Bums this season, but maybe starting the QB who is playing against them will help? Sunday night has their two Ds against each other, then MNF will seal up a couple point comeback for Coach Bev.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
The Preds picked up another win and maintained their #2 scoring ranking, but suddenly they have four Qs and an O to deal with. The Phenoms literally don't have a second RB on their roster who has a game this week. It could be a toss up.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
ELEVEN in a row. The Bolts now stand alone with the second longest winning streak in our history. Can they make it one more? The 'Morons may be favored by 3 points but you'd be foolish to bet against Coach Thad for the past long time.

the HAW (-1) vs. Renegades
The CAPS finally won a game this year, and they did it by scoring our third highest weekly point total of all time. Whoa. The problem for the Renegades is that they're set to do it again, with five players projected to score in the double digits.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Speaking of high point totals, SpiVi quietly put up the fourth highest weekly point total of all time last week. And they are currently second in the league standings and first in scoring. It's a daunting task for the Brew Crew but thanks to the matchups they're going to make it close.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Marauders
These two are really evenly matched, which is saying something since a couple of injured stars are on the Corporation's bench. And one is in the starting lineup. There is a player from at least one of these teams on the field for each of the six game times, the drama will run all weekend.

Good luck this week.

3FL Notes: S19: Week 5 Preview

After four weeks we still have one undefeated and one winless team. And half of the league is sitting at 2-2. Some of those things will change this week!



Week 4 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Marauders - 115 points

Player MVPs:
Nick Chubb (RB/Cle/M) - 35 points
Jameis Winston (QB/TB/MI) - 29 points
Chris Godwin (WR/TB/SV) - 29 points



Predictions Tally

The Comm-nosticator: 12/24 - 50%
Yahoo! Projections: 12/24 - 50%



Week 5 Information

Thursday Night: Los Angeles Rams @ Seattle Seahawks
Sunday Night: Indianapolis Colts @ Kansas City Chiefs
Monday Night: Cleveland Browns @ San Francisco 49ers
Bye Week: Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 5:

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
These two have 8 (EIGHT!) championships between them, but so far this season they only have one combined win. The CAPS are riding a 5 game losing streak but it's looking like they can put a stop to that here. So long as they have a productive game tonight.

Lightning (-1) vs. Dumbbums
Speaking of streaks, the Bolts have won their last 10 in a row, tying the second longest winning streak in our history. Can they extend the streak and maintain their position at the top of the league? Or will the 'Bums outperform the projections?

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Preds have already put up more than 400 points this season and they're currently our highest scoring team. This fact has not translated to wins, though, as they're sitting at .500. They have a good chance at another win against the injured Corporation, but picking RBs will be tricky.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Both of these teams are 2-2 and only 10 points separate their season point totals. You'd think this would be an even matchup, but the Stompers are favored by a bunch. And maybe even more if they take a quick look at who is starting.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Renegades
Coach Val's team has scored in the 40's for the last two weeks in a row. Can they top the half-century mark this week against the Brew Crew? All the matchups seem to favor the Beermen. Ok, all except the TE. But come on.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
SpiVi took their first loss last week but they are still in good shape atop the South division. The Phenoms have lost their last two but have a shot at a win here. The RBs are going to tell the story but Baker Mayfield will write the last chapter on MNF.

Good luck this week.
