3FL Notes: S13: Week 4 Preview

After three weeks we still have three undefeated and three winless teams. We're guaranteed to reduce both of those numbers by at least one this week.

Remember that the byes are starting. Who can you afford to keep on your active roster?

Week 3 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Lightning - 105 points

Player MVPs:
Drew Brees (QB/NO) - 29 points
Cam Newton (QB/Car) - 28 points
Chicago Bears Defense - 25 points

Note: The Stiletto Stompers scored just 14 points in week 3, making the list of the lowest weekly team scores of all time.

Week 4 Information
Thursday Night: San Francisco 49ers @ St. Louis Rams
Sunday Night: New England Patriots @ Atlanta Falcons
Monday Night: Miami Dolphins @ New Orleans Saints
Bye Week: Carolina Panthers, Green Bay Packers

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 4:

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Renegades
3-0 vs. 0-3. Easy choice, right? Not so fast. It should be a great matchup, with Thursday and Sunday night weighing heavily on the outcome. It has a better chance than you think of turning zeros to ones than threes to fours in their team records.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
What happened to the 'Bums after breaking the weekly team record in week 1? After scoring our lowest team total in week 2 and being on the wrong side of the Toyota Biggest Blowout last week, they get lucky this week with the Chair's Aaron Rodgers on a bye.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Last week the Bolts led the league with 105 points, while the Stompers scored an unfortunate record 14 points. But we get to hit the reset button every week and start from zero again. The Lightning's bench being completely unavailable might spark Coach Bev's team back on track.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
In our battle of unbeatens, someone has to take their first loss of the season after this one is over. It should be a good early matchup to watch, with a majority of the players going in the Sunday @ 1pm games. Edge to the Preds since SpiVi has Cam Newton on a bye.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Alfred Morris has averaged -1 point per week over our first three weeks of the season. Coach Hoss might be better off not filling a RB spot at all. That should change this week, as long as he replaces his bye week Defense. Right? And the Brewers sub out their bye week TE?

And the game of the week...

The HAW (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Is the Kaepernick era over in HAWville? After scoring a total of -2 points in the past two weeks it might be an option on the table. I think Colin and the 49ers rebound tonight and start this long Thursday to Monday matchup off right for Coach HAW. And there is a bonus - one of these winless teams is assured its first victory!

Good luck this week.
