3FL Notes: S7: Week 14 (Quarterfinals) Preview

The playoffs are here! Congratulations to the Vipers, Dumbbums and haw for clinching the final three playoff spots.

There are two things to remember for this week.

First, everyone who qualified for the playoffs will play in each of the next three weeks. Make sure you have a lineup set from now through the end of the postseason.

Second, and more importantly, ROSTERS WILL LOCK AT 12:55pm THIS SUNDAY, December 9th. You will not be able to add/drop after this time. Make sure your team is ready for the playoffs before then.

And don't forget that all remaining weeks start with a Thursday Night NFL game.

The Comm-nosticator is finished for the year, but game previews are not...

#1 Lightning vs. #8 ray ray haw
Is this the year for the curse of #1 to be broken? The top seed in the 3FL playoffs has lost in the first round four out of six times and has never won a championship. But this #1 seed has the 2007 version of Tom Brady. Of course, he's going against the Steelers Defense this week, so either victory will be bittersweet. The haw lost their last four games in a row but somehow managed to cling to the eighth seed. It won't be easy to pull an upset, but we all know that anything can happen in the 3FL.

#2 Misfits, Inc. vs. #7 Dumbbums
Donovan McNabb looks like he'll be back as captain of the Corp this week, but will he be all the way back? The 'Bums have a RB playing aginst their own Defense, which will cannabalize some points, but the result of this matchup will hinge on the performances of LT and TO. One thing is for sure - we'll know the winner at around 7:30pm on Sunday.

#3 Marauders vs. #6 Spiked Vipers
In a rematch of last week's game, these two will battle it out for a third time this year. The Vipers won both previous contests and look to continue that trend with a marathon approach; they have at least one player in a game in each time slot. The Marauders spent a good part of the season at the top of the league but finished as the third seed. Maybe that was on purpose...

#4 Renegades vs. #5 Baltimorons
The Baltimorons have an opportunity this year to repeat as champions and keep the trophy right where it is. But don't count out the Renegades. I know they finished the regular season 10th out of 12 in scoring, but there's a reason they went 8-5 to earn the fourth seed. Of course, an injured QB and no backup RB may make a deep playoff run difficult.

Good luck this week. Three wins in a row wins it all!
