3FL Notes: S16: Week 2 Preview

Our first week with the new "10 yards per point" rule obliterated a bunch of our old records, so in the next few days we'll archive the old superlatives (since we're going to forget all about them soon). It will be a fond memory of our first fifteen years - the records of the first 3FL first era.

Week 2 is bound to break some more of those.

Week 1 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Predacons - 138 points

Player MVPs:
Andrew Luck (QB/Ind/P) - 35 points
Drew Brees (QB/NO/SS) - 30 points

Bye Week: None until week 4

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 2:

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brew Crew looks to shore up the early lead in the South Division with a victory here but that's easier said than done. Cam Newton and SpiVi look to rebound from a tough week 1 and the matchups are in their favor.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Lightning
FitzCorp secured a comeback victory in the wee hours of MNF last week, and now they get to play the team that scored half as many points last week. A healthy Gronk would help, but it's looking like Monday night will secure another win for the Corporation.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The CAPS earned a victory last week and are well on their way to powering through the Tom Brady four game suspension. Their overstock of good RBs is bound to result in a wrong decision, but it still could be enough to edge by the medium strength matchups of the 'Bums.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Maruaders are at the top of the East for the time being, but that's only because the 'Morons scored 123 points and lost last week. Everything here will come down to Sunday night. Coach Drew will just have to hope that the Packers spread the wealth around.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Renegades
I'm not sure I'd want to be in the Renegades/Phenoms house this weekend. Both are already 0-1 in their respective divisions and one of them will be 0-2 overall to start the season after this week. At least the 4pm Sunday games will make things interesting for both sides.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds set the record for most points ever scored by one team in a week - by 12 points. And they didn't even vote for the new rules. That won't happen again, especially since the Stompers are fielding the best team they've had in years.

Good luck this week.
