3FL Notes: S21: Week 10 Preview

A second consecutive clunker of a week gave us our lowest league total in almost two years.

Rivalry Week will have some great matchups but will probably not allow anyone to lock in a playoff spot yet. Things are just too close with only five games to go!

James Conner (RB/Ari/SS) - 34 points
Jonathan Taylor (RB/Ind/P) - 31 points

Bye Week: Bears, Bengals, Giants, Texans

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for Rivalry Week:

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Predacons
SpiVi lost again last week (to our highest scoring team) and last year's championship game participants enter Rivalry Week with matching records and similar point totals. But we all know what happened in SuperBowl XX. This one will likely have the same result (minus the additions to the record book).

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
This battle will start tonight and feature at least one player in every time slot. The 'Morons have some personnel who might be coming off the IR this week, but the edge will go to the 'Bums if Aaron Rodgers is back. Maybe.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The Bolts need a win here to stay in the hunt for the postseason and they just might have the matchups to pull it off. FitzCorp is coming off a week where they scored their lowest total since Rivalry Week of 2017. And they have a lot of work to do to get ready for this one. Can they start a full lineup of players with all those Qs?

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Look, it's another amazing matchup! These teams are both projected to score over 100 points this week and have our two highest estimated totals. It just might be our first tie of the year. The biggest question is if either Seahawk on the IR will return for this game.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brew Crew has been steady in second place for a while now. Can they stay there (or even move up)? Don't let the records–or the fact that PEP has nobody available on the bench–fool you. As long as those Qs disappear by Sunday this is the upset special of the week.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
This has to be the GOTW, right? The standings don't matter. This is another great matchup and things look even across their lineups. The additional storyline is that the Renegades have lost eight in a row. Another L here would put them into a tie at the top of our list of longest losing streaks of all time, matching their own streak and one from...the Stompers of course.

Good luck this week.
