3FL Notes: S16: Week 8 Preview

We just had our lowest scoring week of the year (by far), but don't be fooled. Ten of twelve teams are still on pace to put up a higher season total than we've ever had before.

This week and next both have six NFL teams on a bye so things should get interesting. Also be aware that there is ANOTHER game in London this week. Again at 9:30am EST on Sunday. Someone in the NFL offices must like tea and scones.

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Spiked Vipers - 108 points

Player MVPs:
Melvin Gordon (RB/SD/M) - 29 points
Jeremy Hill (RB/Cin/R) - 24 points

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

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss survived a scare last week but things aren't going to get any easier against Tom Brady and the CAPS. OBJ on a bye isn't helpful either. It's possible that we'll have to wait until MNF to finish the story, though.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
These two are headed in opposite directions. The Stompers have won their last two while PEP is on a three game losing streak. But the matchups here lean heavily toward Coach Greg's RBs. And a healthy Dez Bryant?

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Last week the Renegades got their first win in our last eight regular season games. There was no doubt about it either, as they were our biggest blowout of the week too. However, FitzCorp is coming to town and they have scored 215 more points than the 'Gades this year. Looks like a new streak is about to start.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Preds just picked up their first win since the second win of the season and had two of the leagues top three scorers. Unfortunately they were both on the bench. Things might be easier this week since the Brewers' bench is completely full of players on a bye.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Having five Qs and an O probably doesn't mean you'll have a great week (even if you have Aaron Rodgers fully healthy). But it's even worse when one of your RBs RETIRES in the middle of the season. Sigh. Someone's luck has to change this week, right?

And the game of the week...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Don't look now, but SpiVi has outscored the league for two weeks in a row. Can they make it three? The 'Bums seem to have the better matchups this week, but we'll know a lot more about how things are going to go after tonight's QB battle.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week.
