3FL Notes: S6: Week 6 Preview

Can you believe that we are already more than 1/3 of the way through the regular season? What will happen with the two remaining undefeated teams? And why are Defenses scoring so many points?

Just a general note - six NFL teams are on a bye this week and next, so many of our teams will have to start second and third stringers. It's going to be interesting...

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Rough Riders - 72 points

Player MVPs:
Donovan McNabb (QB/Phi) - 23 points
Jacksonville Jaguars Defense - 23 points
San Francisco 49ers Defense - 20 points

The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 6:

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
We have somehow avoided the annual trash talking that usually leads up to this matchup. Maybe the Brew Crew is aware that bye weeks are going to make things difficult for them. Or maybe both teams are just stockpiling witty remarks for gametime.

Misfits (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
It's difficult to watch the top scoring team in the league start out with a 2-3 record. But that just shows you that anything is possible in the 3FL. Can the team with the least points in the league beat the one with the most points? Unlikely. But possible.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Predacons
It seems like the Preds lucky win streak will come to an end this week. Even though these two teams have scored exactly the same number of points to date (301), Coach Sinkerbeam has his top two WRs listed as Doubtful and Peyton Manning on a bye. Bye, bye undefeated.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
Even though Larry Fitz will miss this week because of injury, the Marauders have already filled his spot with his actual backup, so no real edge was lost. The Riders had the high score in the league last week, but that doesn't help them here. Coach Hoss' matchups are too soft.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Renegades
A ninth straight win will be comfy for the Chair this week, as Coach Skrabby once again fields a solid lineup. It also helps that half of the Renegades don't actually get to touch the football very much during their NFL games.

And the game of the week...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Wow, this one is going to be close. More like (-1/4) on the prediction line. Each team has a mix of tough and easy matchups, so it may only take one breakout performance to capture the win. And it may be time for Antonio Gates to live up to his keeper expectations.

Good luck this week.

Go vote.


  1. The Oakland A's are playing football now? Does that mean the Raiders are going after their first World Series title?

  2. Anyone interested in a trade? I've got a great kicker that I'd be willing to trade for a decent RB or WR...let me know if you're interested.
