3FL Notes: S18: Week 13 Preview

Last week we saw two MNF comebacks that punched two more postseason tickets. Plus the 'Morons outscored the league again to be our fourth qualifier (even though they're our 9th best team). All of the divisions are decided, but we're on track to break some season-long records this week, and with half of the playoff spots still available it should be quite a finale!

Week 12 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Baltimorons - 114 points

Player MVPs:
Christian McCaffrey (RB/Car/SV) - 35 points
Amari Cooper (WR/Dal/D) - 30 points
Deshaun Watson (QB/Hou/L) - 29 points

Predictions Tally

The Comm-nosticator: 44/72 - 61.11%
Yahoo! Projections: 40/72 - 55.56%

Week 13 Information

Thursday Night: New Orleans Saints @ Dallas Cowboys
Sunday Night: Los Angeles Chargers @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Monday Night: Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 13:

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
This might be the year that a division winner squeezes out a team that's higher in the standings. Our defending champion has already clinched the South (and the postseason spot that comes with it), and the Stompers are stuck in last place. So there's really nothing to see here.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds have been at the top of the league for the past three weeks. But is that a good thing? We all know about the curse of the #1 seed, and it's looking like the Renegades can help in dropping them out of that spot. So then all they'll have to worry about is the 0-18 championships thing.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Our two top scoring teams get to battle it out this week. Only four points separate them, and they're both on track to break the all time record for points scored in a season. You'd think it should be a high-flying game but they have ten Qs between them. Ten.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
PEP really needed a win last week but they ended up with only 61 points and at the wrong side of the Biggest Blowout™. There is still a sliver of a chance that they could make the postseason, but they'll need a win against the Bolts and A LOT of help. Coach Thad is in fourth place but it's still possible that even he could miss the playoffs with a loss here.

the HAW (-1/2) vs Marauders
The Marauders have won the West but the perennial powerhouse CAPS are right in the thick of the .500 group still clawing for a postseason spot. They're projected to score the highest point total in the league this week, but we all know how that goes. Coach HAW will need to make all of the right starting lineup decisions and then kind of root against the Steelers on Sunday night.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
It all comes down to this. These teams have the same record and are within three points of each other coming into this matchup. The 'Morons are putting a wrench into the system, though, so the winner here is in and the loser will have to have a lot of things work in their favor. It's going to be interesting to have FitzCorp root against a couple of Eagles on MNF.

Good luck this week.
