3FL Notes: S16: Week 12 Preview

Two more teams punched their ticket to the postseason during our lowest scoring week of the year, but that still leaves five spots open with only two weeks to go. And all of our teams are still mathematically eligible for the postseason (unlike the Cleveland Browns).

It's going to be an exciting week full of drama and turkey!

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The Comm-nosticator predicted the late season rise of the Renegades and I'm not backing off yet. They've won three in a row and have given themselves a chance at a postseason berth after an awful start to the year. The CAPS and Tom Brady have different plans, but this one is going to be super close.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The top in the West meets the top in the South in this one. The 'Bums have already qualified for the playoffs and have won three of their last four, but PEP looks to have the upper hand this week thanks to the matchups. We'll know a lot more after Thanksgiving afternoon. You know, before the second round of turkey.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The Preds keep finding a way to lose this season. They are guaranteed to finish no better than .500 even if they win out, and they are definitely not guaranteed a playoff spot. The Stompers have lost two in a row and could really use a division win here. Starting a full lineup would help.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
This battle is pretty much a must win for the Brew Crew. It's a divisional matchup and they're currently in last place with only two weeks to go. They've also scored the fewest points in the league so far. So why would things turn around this week?

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Lightning
FitzCorp may have scored their lowest total this year, but don't feel bad for them just yet. They've already qualified for the playoffs and are still averaging triple digit points per week. The Bolts need a win here to avoid the division sweep but the matchups aren't looking good for that.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
A great week of games is highlighted by what should be an amazing matchup. Starters are spread throughout the holiday week with it all coming down to Aaron Rodgers on MNF. Can he finish the comeback and send the Marauders to their second loss in a row?

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
