3FL Notes: S17: Week 3 Preview

Week two gave us four team scores above 100 points and four below 60 points. And we also had our first one point game (thanks to a MNF holdout).

Get ready for the last of our first set of intra-divisional games until the end of the season! Also remember that the Ravens and Jags play early Sunday morning in London this week.

Week 2 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Predacons - 121 points

Player MVPs:
C.J. Anderson (RB/Den/M) - 26 points
Tom Brady (QB/NE/L) - 26 points
Michael Crabtree (WR/Oak/P) - 26 points

League Voting: 7/12 - 58.33%
Yahoo! Projections: 6/12 - 50%

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

Week 3 Information

Thursday Night: LA Rams @ San Francisco 49ers
Sunday Morning: Baltimore Ravens @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Sunday Night: Oakland Raiders @ Washington Redskins
Monday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ Arizona Cardinals
Bye Week: No more until week 5

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

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
It has not been a great start to the season for the Brew Crew. They've scored an average of almost 35 fewer points than projections in our first two weeks. But maybe this is the week the Beermen get their first win, since the Renegades have had their own issues with underperforming.

Lightning (-2) vs. Dumbbums
Lots of important pieces to this matchup will be active during the Steelers game on Sunday. But don't sleep on an angry Tom Brady either.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This game will probably come down to which Preds team shows up. They have scored the highest and almost the lowest totals in our first two weeks. A return to the middle means a slight edge for Marauders.

the HAW (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
SpiVi is our only team to not reach triple digits in season scoring yet. They'll obviously cross that threshold this week, but posting enough points to beat the CAPS isn't going to be easy. Coach HAW may have lost David Johnson but he still has Aaron Rodgers.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Between these two there are enough Qs and Ds for an entire starting lineup. A lot will depend on if those players end up starting (and if they can get through a whole football game). Prime Time matchups will also play a part.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Remember a few weeks ago when Yahoo! gave the South Division teams the three worst draft grades in the whole league? Well after two games they are by far the highest scoring division in the 3FL. These two will continue their high-flying ways, but Gronk's injury gives the slightest advantage to the Stompers.

Good luck this week.
