3FL Notes: S17: Week 9 Preview

We saw another one point game last week and the Bolts jumped back up into the top spot. Can they stay there? Would they rather not??

With six NFL teams on a bye again it will be interesting to see which players end up in a starting lineup.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Ten over two?!? Let me explain. I know that FitzCorp just beat the #1 team (even with a benched K). But things are getting real for our top scorers as Ezekiel Elliott is most likely perhaps probably maybe suspended again and they have a bench full of bye week RBs. Meanwhile SpiVi just outscored the whole league after a half season of underperforming. Upset in the making.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. the HAW
We all know how snakebit the CAPS have been injury-wise this season. But they just lost by one point last week because their WR threw an INT on MNF. Yikes. Something is clearly going on this season and the Renegades need to capitalize on the HAW's (un)luck and WR bye weeks if they want a shot at the postseason.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The Preds (as predicted) lost last week but thankfully they'll have Gurley back against the 'Bums. Also the matchups favor Coach Sinkerbeam's team thanks to Le'Veon and the Steelers on their bye. It would just be helpful if their QB doesn't score negative points again.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
PEP is on top of the West Division and has won four of their last five, but this one is all about how bad the Brewers will be. They are our lowest scoring team and have lost five games in a row. Don't look now but there is still enough time for them to break the record for longest losing streak before the end of the year.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
The Bolts replaced the 'Morons the top of the standings after an improbable MNF game last week, but their luck won't continue here. Coach Drew has a good opportunity to retake the #1 seed with both Brady and AB on a bye.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
I know we still have five weeks left, but this matchup could have big playoff implications. And it's going to be a good one as these two are evenly matched. The Stompers are second in scoring and they should run out to a big lead, but Coach Hoss has four players in prime time games for a push at a MNF comeback.

Good luck this week.
