3FL Notes: S16: Week 3 Preview

Another exciting week of games saw a second straight FitzCorp MNF comeback, jumping them to the top of the league (with a 118.5 points per week average). Can they continue that streak?

Get ready for the last of our first set of intra-divisional games and the final full-roster games before the bye weeks start!

Week 2 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Stiletto Stompers - 119 points

Player MVPs:
Cam Newton (QB/Car/SV) - 30 points
Derek Carr (QB/Oak/PEP) - 24 points
Carson Palmer (QB/Ari/MI) - 24 points

The 3FL Records page is now current and will be updated as new records are broken. Our First Era Records page is also live (if you want to revisit the good old days).

Predictions Tally

The Comm-nosticator: 6/12 - 50%
League Voting: 6/12 - 50%
Yahoo! Projections: 6/12 - 50%

Go vote! Seriously - only one team voted last week. I'll probably turn off the voting option if nobody votes this week.

Week 3 Information

Thursday Night: Houston Texans @ New England Patriots
Sunday Night: Chicago Bears @ Dallas Cowboys
Monday Night: Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints
Bye Week: None until next week

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
The Bolts have not gotten off to a great start and things are cloudy again this week with all of those Ds and Qs. This one will gain momentum late, with most of the players not taking the field until after the 1pm games are over.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. the HAW
After just two weeks of games FitzCorp has scored 100 more points than the HAW. They shouldn't look past this important division matchup, though, as the winner will be atop of the North (for the time being anyway). Can Alshon Jeffery make it three MNF comebacks in a row for the Corporation?

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Two of our three undefeated teams meet here to determine who will remain without a loss to start the season. The Stompers outscored everyone last week and posted the biggest blowout in the process, but this week will be much more difficult because of their matchups.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Thursday night will be big for SpiVi and could foretell the result of this one. After that their players are finished after the 1pm Sunday games while PEP still has at least four going in the late games. I smell a comeback.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Predacons
After a record breaking week one, the Preds scored less than half as many points last week. Which team will show up against the 'Bums? All eyes will be on Coby Fleener (really) on MNF to see which team can try to keep up with the Stompers in the West.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Renegades
When Coach Drew ended up with Antonio Brown and Aaron Rodgers after the draft did anyone imagine that they would be 0-2 to begin the season? The Renegades look like they will be starting their third different QB in three weeks and have been bitten by the injury bug all over the lineup. I know it's only 0-3, but the loser here will have an uphill battle to qualify for the playoffs.

Good luck this week.
