3FL Notes: S21: Week 6 Preview

WOW! Week 5 was our highest scoring week of all time, and it wasn't even close. More than half of our teams scored 100+ points and FitzCorp added their name to the weekly high totals list.

Don't forget there is another early Sunday game in England and the byes start this week. Make sure your team is ready.

Sunday Morning: Miami Dolphins @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Sunday Night: Seattle Seahawks @ Pittsburgh Steelers
Monday Night: Buffalo Bills @ Tennessee Titans
Bye Week: 49ers, Falcons, Jets, Saints



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 6:

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
Somehow SpiVi has two losses even though they're the top scoring team in the 3FL. It's tough when you score 138 and don't win the game. But they should have a better outcome here. I mean, just check out all of the red letters beside the PEP players. 5 Qs and 1 D,  1 IR and 1 PUP-R. Ouch.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Renegades
These two have had enough in-game injuries already. The Preds can jump out to an early lead tonight, but it's all going to come down to the first round picks. Saquan Barkley is almost surely out, but can Christan McCaffrey return to give the Renegades a fighting chance?

the HAW (-1) vs. Baltimorons
Coach HAW followed up their record breaking performance with 136 points and a second straight Biggest Blowout of the Week. Not too bad. They'll likely be over the century mark again here, and the 'Morons will struggle to keep up with their infirmary of a bench.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Last week gave the Marauders their first loss of the year but they remain in our top spot for at least one more week. The 'Bums are looking to raise their place in the standings and they should have a shot in this one. Coach Hoss will just have to pay attention to which Seahawks RB gets the start.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
The Bolts secured their first win of the year in the waning moments of MNF last week and the result of this matchup might be on the same timeline. The injuries for both teams will be an important factor but Josh Allen can make any game closer than it appears in the projections.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
FitzCorp came out of nowhere last week to match our fifth highest weekly total of all time. They might not put up that many points again this week, but they do have some favorable matchups against our surprising second place Brew Crew. First we'll have to check on the status of Lamar Jackson. Then all eyes will be on Monday Night Football.

Good luck this week.

3FL Notes: S21: Week 5 Preview

Only the Marauders remain undefeated (and they now lead the league in scoring too). And the HAW broke the record for most points ever scored in a regular season game in week 4. They now hold four of the top five spots on the all-time scoring list.

Don't forget about the 9:30am game on Sunday from England.



Week 4 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: the HAW - 158 points (New 3FL record)

Player MVPs:
Tyreek Hill (WR/KC/tH) - 36 points
Patrick Mahomes (QB/KC/SV) - 35 points
Dak Prescott (QB/Dal/M) - 30 points



Predictions Tally

The Comm-nosticator: 16/24 - 66.67%
Yahoo! Projections: 15/24 - 62.50%



Week 5 Information

Thursday Night: Los Angeles Rams @ Seattle Seahawks
Sunday Morning: New York Jets @ Atlanta Falcons
Sunday Night: Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs
Monday Night: Indianapolis Colts @ Baltimore Ravens
Bye Week: None until next week



And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 5:

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
It was a rare down week for SpiVi but they managed to pick up another win anyway. They'll need to work to get the scoring lead back, though. This one will be close and anything can happen with a combined six players in prime time games.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Marauders
The Brew Crew picked up their first loss last week despite scoring 112 points. They would have beaten any other team except the record breaking HAW. This week will be different. The Beermen have a shot at taking down our #1 team and it might not even be close.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Coach Val has been dealing with in-game injuries all season and now they've lost their last three straight. You'd think things would get easier this week against our lowest scoring team, but filling in for the Qs (and IRs) is going to be tough.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Both of these teams have scored 380 points through our first four weeks. It's not looking like things will be as equal in this one, as the Stompers have only two players projected into double digits. Unless Dalvin Cook is back...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Bolts are the only winless team left this year. In fact, they've lost five straight going back to the end of last season. But things are lining up to break that streak this week. The Preds' RBs finally woke up last week but the matchups give the Lightning an edge. Upset special.

And the game of the week...

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
The regular season scoring record was shattered by Coach HAW last week, and he took back the top spot from...PEP. The Phenoms have a chance for revenge here but they'll have to deal with 4 Qs and an O to give themselves that opportunity.

Good luck this week.
