3FL Notes: S11: Week 1 Preview

The 11th 3FL season begins tonight!

Can ray ray haw defend the title and and win a fourth championship? Will the Lightning finally play in the big game? Do the Marauders remember where they put their logo? Will anyone else sign up for a Twitter account? Only the 3FL season will have the answers...

It all starts on Thursday night!
Remember to have your starting lineups set 5 minutes before the games begin this week. Any players in the Saints vs. Packers game will be locked in whichever lineup position you have them at 8:25pm EDT on Thursday.

Coach Thadtotti once again put together our customized schedule. This year divisional games will be played in weeks 4-6 and 11-13 and week 10 will again our rivalry week. Thanks, spreadsheetgeek.

Voting is up and running for the season - make sure you vote on all the 3FL games before the beginning of tonight's NFL game.

Here we go!

Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers
Sunday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Jets
Monday Night Early: New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins
Monday Night Late: Oakland Raiders @ Denver Broncos
Bye Week: None until week 5

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 1:
The first week is always the toughest to predict, but here goes...

The Comfy Chair (-1) vs. Baltimorons
Will Peyton Manning have more neck surgeries than completions this season? Maybe. Josh Freeman will fill in admirably, but it will probably not be enough for Coach Drew to pull out a victory this week.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
This matchup puts the first pick in the draft against the last. Things look about even, and points by the defenses may end up being the difference. Both teams will have to wait as the Predacons try to mount a comeback with three players in the late Monday game.

Renegades (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
It's a shame we have to wait until Monday night to watch Tom Brady sure things up for the newlyweds. But Matthew Stafford and Philly's D will make this closer than you might think.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Drew Brees will set the tone early for the Stompers in what looks to be a great game. The big question is if Sydney Rice will be healthy this weekend. Most of the matchups go slightly toward the Corp, though, and they are hoping for a strong Sunday at 1pm.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Lightning
So the Vipers are rumored to have had the best draft. That will be put to the test against Jay Cutler and the Bolts this week. Wait. Jay Cutler? Nevermind. At least Chris Johnson might be able to keep it from getting out of hand.

And the game of the week...

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Arian Foster says he'll be ready for week 1, if you believe his tweet. I'm sure the haw are concerned with him as a person. Anyway, they also need to decide which TE to play. The PIT/BAL game will weigh heavily on the outcome of this game, so you might want to watch it.

Good luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 11!
