3FL Notes: S20: Week 7 Preview

Our lowest scoring week of the season gave us a few Prime Time comebacks and a lot of drama. Can you believe we're officially at the halfway point of this out of the ordinary season?

Make sure you keep track of the schedule this weekend. Some things have already changed, possibly in preparation for more changes.

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Phys. Ed. Phenoms - 103 points

Player MVPs:
Derrick Henry (RB/Ten/MI) - 38 points
Deshaun Watson (QB/Hou/PEP) - 32 points
Matt Ryan (QB/Atl/L) - 31 points

Predictions Tally

Week 7 Information

Thursday Night: New York Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles
Sunday Night: Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Las Vegas Raiders
Monday Night: Chicago Bears @ Los Angeles Rams
Bye Week: Colts, Dolphins, Ravens, Vikings

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Don't look now, but the 'Morons are on a two game winning streak after being winless in the first month of the season. Keeping that steak alive is going to be tough against the CAPS, especially depending on how all of the Qs end up.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The 'Bums scored our lowest weekly total of the season last week, putting up only 43 points on the wrong end of the Biggest Blowout. But that's unlikely to happen again. This one isn't as lopsided as it looks at the moment, because the Stompers will swap their starters who are no longer on last week's bye. Right??

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
So far this year the Brew Crew has averaged just under 23 points per week more than the Bolts. That's almost four fantasy touchdowns. But this game will be closer than you think. Byes and Qs will add to the drama, but it will all come down to a MNF comeback by our last place team.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
After starting the season with a couple of losses, Coach Hoss has just won his last four straight. That could easily stretch to five after this week as the Marauders RBs lead the way. A combined six players on a bye aren't helping anyone either.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Renegades
These teams have identical .500 records but are in opposite places in their divisional standings. That's unfortunate for the Renegades since they're the team that has scored 100+ more points so far. The Preds have not been good lately but they get a chance to right the ship with some lucky matchups. They'll just have to avoid a Prime Time comeback.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
1 vs. 2 in the standings (and in league scoring) will face off this week to see who will start the second half of the season on top. These teams are pretty even across the board and in the projections, but who would pick against SpiVi at this point? They're on pace to score the most points in a season in league history and are a good bet to top the century mark again.

Good luck this week.
