3FL Notes: S13: Week 1 Preview

Can the Lightning defend the trophy? Will half of the league keep the gold helmets with the black star? Can anyone read any of the text on the newly designed website? Season 13 will be lucky for someone, but only the 3FL season will have these answers...

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

Coach Thadtotti once again crafted our customized schedule. This year divisional games will be played in weeks 1-3 and 11-13 and week 11 will be 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 and Yahoo! will keep track for us this year. And all managers can vote individually.

Here we go!

Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos
Sunday Night: New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night Early: Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Redskins
Monday Night Late: Houston Texans @ San Diego Chargers
Bye Week: None until week 4

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

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Bolts get to begin their title defense with a top ranked draft. It's almost not fair. But the Marauders will have something to say about week one with a comeback ready to start in prime time.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. THE Haw
This one should be a good matchup between our elder statesmen. We should know much more about the direction of the game tonight, when the 'Bums have nearly half of their lineup playing on the NFL's opening night.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
It's a rivalry matchup preview here in our first week of the season. The twins should end up in a tie (in a perfect world), but it's more likely that neither coach will stay awake for the deciding game on Sunday night.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Both of these teams already have some decisions to make about starting players. It will come down to who leaves points on the bench and if the Preds can make a comeback with three players in prime time.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
There is already a QB controversy at the corporate office. That's going to be a recurring theme this year. Meanwhile, the Brew Crew is going to start the players chosen earliest by Yahoo!, but that strategy has a decent track record.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
This one may be too close to call. The winner gets a jump start in the South Division, but the loser still has either Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton at the helm. That's not too shabby.

Good luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 13!
