3FL Notes: S21: Week 11 Preview

Rivalry Week lived up to the hype, giving us a tie (in both the NFL and 3FL), a streak breaker and two MNF comebacks.

With only four games left in the regular season there are still no playoff spots clinched and no team is mathematically eliminated either. It should be a fun sprint to the postseason!

Week 10 Recap

Top Scoring 3FL Team: Marauders - 120 points

Player MVPs:
Patrick Mahomes (QB/KC/SV) - 38 points
Deebo Samuel (WR/SF/YB) - 24 points
AJ Dillon (RB/GB/M) - 24 points

Predictions Tally

The Comm-nosticator: 36/60 - 60%
Yahoo! Projections: 35/60 - 58.33%

The Comm-nosticator was 0/6 in week 10 predictions. Ouch.

Week 11 Information

Thursday Night: New England Patriots @ Atlanta Falcons
Sunday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Los Angeles Chargers
Monday Night: New York Giants @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bye Week: Broncos, Rams

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 11:

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
With their loss in our twin billing game last week the Stompers also lost their hold on the West Division. They might be able to get it back with a win in this unfortunately easy matchup. PEP has had a tough go this season and things aren't any easier this week with their bench full of no help at all.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Both of these teams pulled off late MNF comeback wins last week, and that's a possibility for one of them again here. If Saquon Barkley is back he just might help the Preds do just that. But apparently they didn't learn a lesson from the Cam Newton debacle of last year? He's just a bye week fill-in, but still.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The 'Morons were half of our first tie of the season last week. According to the projections that could happen again in this one. FitzCorp has a slight edge in the matchups but if they fail to swap our their bye week Defense I get to change my pick. Right?

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Renegades
The Renegades halted their losing streak at eight games, leaving no doubt about it as they posted the biggest blowout of Rivalry Week. That probably won't happen again against the CAPS. They'll need to start big with three players going tonight since prime time will belong to Coach HAW (who will have to root for his Chargers players as they take on his Steelers).

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Both of these teams need a win, but the Bolts need one more. A victory keeps them in the hunt for a postseason spot but a loss will be hard to come back from. The 'Bums do have a lot more Qs to deal with and Cordarrelle Patterson is a game time decision. If he's out that's trouble for Coach Coaldog.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Our top two scoring teams finally meet in a battle that should be as good as advertised. They have the two highest projected scores of the week and both have a chance to be over the century mark. The Marauders will continue their high flying ways, but don't rule out Patrick Mahomes and SpiVi pulling a MNF comeback and getting their .500 record back on the right track.

Good luck this week.
