3FL Notes: S17: Week 12 Preview

We saw multiple Monday night comebacks and two more teams punched their ticket to the postseason last week. That leaves half of the playoff spots still available with six teams still mathematically eligible to claim them.

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

Week 11 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Spiked Vipers - 103 points

Player MVPs:
Antonio Brown (WR/Pit/L) - 32 points
Russell Wilson (QB/Sea/SS) - 29 points
Keenan Allen (WR/LAC/M) - 27 points

Predictions Tally

The Comm-nosticator: 41/66 - 62.12%
Yahoo! Projections: 34/66 - 51.51%

Week 12 Information

Thursday Early: Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions
Thanksgiving Late: Los Angeles Chargers @ Dallas Cowboys
Thanksgiving Night: New York Giants @ Washington Redskins
Sunday Night: Green Bay Packers @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Monday Night: Houston Texans @ Baltimore Ravens

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

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
These two teams have the same record and are second and third in scoring in the league (with only seven points separating them). This week their matchups are even too. The winner will secure a playoff spot and lead the South Division, so this is kind of an important one. Stay tuned for MNF to see how it turns out.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
There are a lot of red pixels spread across these two rosters, to the tune of six Qs, two IRs and one O. There are also a lot of Thanksgiving Day games on the schedule. And the CAPS' starting QB of the week is...Case Keenum.

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Doug Baldwin caught a TD pass with three minutes left in the Monday night game to give the 'Bums a week 11 comeback victory and a postseason berth. They probably won't need the Prime Time heroics this week, but with Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers D playing on SNF, that same story might repeat itself.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Marauders lost by just three points last week thanks to their QB's -5. (For the record, their bench QB scored 30. Ouch.) So now their only chance at the playoffs is to win out and get some help. The Bolts seeming indifference hasn't stopped them from winning or staying at the top of the league, so this should be a good one.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Renegades are now mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and they'll miss the postseason for the seventh straight year. So the only drama here will be what FitzCorp decides to do about the Ezekiel Elliott roster spot during his suspension (that lasts until our SuperBowl week).

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Another week, another SpiVi high score. They've now put up the most team points in three out of the last four weeks. If this team started their unbelievable run a little earlier they wouldn't be in the predicament that they're in now. But they still have the slightest sliver of hope to play after week 13 and it has to start with another high-flying week against the Phenoms.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
