3FL Notes: S13: Week 8 Preview

Our lowest scoring week so far this year gave us a new team atop the 3FL. The Dumbbums have won four straight and have finally matched their ranking with their league leading point total.

Things are about to get even more interesting. Six NFL teams are on a bye this week, so the waiver wire will get quite a workout. Make sure you fill in your lineup before gameday.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
If you would have told me that Aaron Rodgers would be part of a team that is on a four game losing streak, I wouldn't have believed you. But after watching the Chair's one point loss last week it is clear that luck is not on their side this season. The Brew Crew on the other hand...

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Take our lowest scoring team, hand them a Q and an O and three players on a bye, and then give them a game against our second highest scoring team. It's not going to be pretty. At least a bunch of Vipers have the week off, too. So that's something.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The 'Morons really need a win to keep a mathematical chance at the postseason. A Renegades team with 6 of 14 players on a bye is just what the playoff doctor ordered. Will Coach Val leave holes in her lineup again this week? Who can she afford to drop??

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Marauders
The 'Bums are back atop the league and rightfully so. They are the only team to score more than 500 points so far this year. Peyton Manning will continue to deliver victories, but don't sleep on the Marauders this week. They are trying to keep pace in the 3FL North.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
After enduring a loss last week, the Bolts are ready to get back on the winning track. They'll get a test against the Preds but it won't be much now that Brees and Graham are back from their bye. Plus Coach Sinkerbeam is almost guaranteed to leave the highest scoring player on the bench.

And the game of the week...

THE Haw (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
These two are heading in opposite directions. The once mighty FitzCorp has lost three in a row and slipped from first to sixth place in those three weeks. Meanwhile the CAPS have won two straight and outscored the league last week. It looks to be an epic battle and it just might even out their records.

Good luck this week.
