3FL Notes: S21: Week 1 Preview

Can the Spiked Vipers defend the title and break all their own records? Will the flex position and extra game change everything? Can you believe we're kicking off our third decade of fantasy football?? The 21st 3FL season will have these answers. 

It all starts tonight. Get your team ready to go!

Week 1 Information

Thursday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Sunday Night: Chicago Bears @ LA Rams
Monday Night: Baltimore Ravens @ Las Vegas Raiders
Bye Week: None until week 6

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 1:
The first week is always the toughest to predict, but here goes...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
SpiVi begins their title defense as the biggest underdog of the week (according to Yahoo! projections). Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce can turn those numbers around in a hurry, but the RB differential might be just enough for the 'Morons.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
We'll have quite the QB battle as the two unadorned helmet logos face off in week 1. The players stretch across every NFL time slot and both have a chance for an early advantage tonight. But the game will be left in the hands of the Brew Crew's 2 MNF players for a comeback.

Lightning (-1) vs. Renegades
This one would be much closer if the Renegades' RB2 didn't suffer a season ending injury earlier today. His replacement is...Chuba Hubbard? Yikes. Perhaps they can swing a trade for one of the 5 RBs on the Bolts' roster. After this game is over of course.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Another tight 3FL matchup is highlighted by players in tonight's game. In fact, FitzCorp has a starter playing in every scheduled game time this week. It's so close this one is really a coin toss so perhaps it should come down to Prime Time.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. the HAW
The flex position gives us a new wrinkle this season and that spot may be the difference in this matchup. The rest of their rosters are relatively even, but picking the best choice among multiple players with the same projected points could secure the victory.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This looks to be an even matchup across the lineups. It will depend on Saquon Barkley's reps and the Steelers/Bills game (where almost half of Coach Hoss' team is playing), but it won't be over until SNF gives the Preds a comeback opportunity.

Good luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 21!
