3FL Notes: S20: Week 14 (Quarterfinals) Preview

Our regular season finale week locked in our final two postseason spots and gave us a few additions to the 3FL Records page. It's already shaping up to be an exciting run to SuperBowl XX!

Remember that ROSTERS WILL LOCK AT 1pm THIS SUNDAY, December 13th. Under our playoff rules you will be allowed to make 1 add/drop per week once the postseason starts, but only teams still in the winners bracket will be eligible to make a move (with waivers set in reverse order of seeding).

Three wins in a row wins it all!!

The Comm-nosticator is finished for the year, but game previews are not...

#1 Spiked Vipers vs. #8 Renegades
SpiVi finished our twentieth regular season with the top seed while setting the record for most points scored in a season in the history of the league. Not too bad. Now they get to start their journey to a championship against the tough luck (and 4-8-1) Renegades. It should be an easy first step, but we all know about the curse...

#2 Misfits, Inc. vs. #7 Phys. Ed. Phenoms
FitzCorp fell out of the top spot after a week 13 loss with an incomplete starting lineup. Was it playoff prep or curse avoidance or forgetting to double check? We may never know. But they ended up earning a game against the suddenly hot Phenoms, who have climbed up from the basement to the seventh seed. This might be our best matchup of the week and it's going to come down to MNF for a PEP comeback.

#3 Predacons vs. #6 the HAW
They beat the #1 and #2 teams in back to back games and just finished the year by outscoring the league and being on the right side of the Biggest Blowout of the Week™. But have the Preds peaked too soon to have a shot at their first title? They get the four time champion CAPS in the quarterfinals, and in addition to having the highest projected total coach HAW might just get Christian McCaffrey back from IR. So...maybe next year?

#4 Dumbbums vs. #5 Marauders
These two teams from the West division are separated by one win and only seven total points after our regular season. And this game might be just as close. The matchups are even across the rosters and it's going to come down to coaching decisions and a three player comeback attempt by the 'Bums in the prime time games.

Good luck in the playoffs! The trophy awaits!!
