3FL Notes: S7: Week 5 Preview

I've updated the 3FL Records page to reflect the top five of each stat category in the history of the league (instead of comparing the best from each season). The league didn't start out keeping records this way, but now everything is conformed for a truer picture of our highlights and lowlights. I've also added the longest win/loss streaks to the list.

As for this season, the upsets just keep on coming. And so do the injuries. Last week saw The Comfy Chair earn their first win and Misfits, Inc. take their first loss, so it looks like the streaks are safe for now.

Week 4 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Marauders - 71 points

Player MVPs:

Tony Romo (QB/Dal) - 29 points
Peyton Manning (QB/Ind) - 27 points

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 5:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
Let me get this straight - the Renegades won last week even though 4 of their starters combined for 1 fantasy point. Can that happen again? We'll have to see if either twin has a full lineup of players who are actually in uniform on Sunday.

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Actually, this one might go the other way depending on the Brew Crew's bye week replacements. Or lack thereof. But the 'Bums WRs could put them on the other side of a Monday night comeback this week.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Predacons
Here is the Preds' week 5 injury report - 1 WR, 2 RBs, & 1 TE are all game-time decisions. Add that to 3 players on a bye and you've got a run at the futility record. Peyton Manning may be the only player the Vipers need in their lineup.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Corp has their dynamic duo on a bye this week, so who knows what type of numbers they'll post. But the Chair is starting Drew Brees again. He has zero fantasy points this season. I'm not kidding. That's what 7 INTs and 2 fumbles will do to you...

Lightning (-1) vs. ray ray haw
Why do I keep picking the team from NY to win? Well, they look good on paper. But you can throw the projected points out the window for this matchup. No one on either team seems to be paying attention to them.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
This will be a great battle, but it's looking more and more like the 'Morons will lose a few starters to injuries before the week is through. The way Tony Romo is playing, though, it might not matter. We'll have to wait until Monday night to crown the victor.

Good luck this week.
