3FL Notes: S23: Week 7 Preview

An upside down week saw our top three teams lose and our bottom two win. Now everyone has at least two victories and two defeats after our first six weeks. How much will things get shaken up this week with six NFL teams on a bye?

Player MVPs:
Raheem Mostert (RB/Mia/M) - 30 points
Tua Tagovailoa (QB/Mia/M) - 23 points
Tyreek Hill (WR/Mia/SV) - 22 points

Week 7 Information

Thursday Night: Jacksonville Jaguars @ New Orleans Saints
Sunday Night: Miami Dolphins @ Philadelphia Eagles
Monday Night: San Francisco 49ers @ Minnesota Vikings
Bye Week: Bengals, Cowboys, Jets, Panthers, Texans, Titans

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Don't look now but the Renegades are atop the West Division and have won their last three in a row. It won't be easy to extend that streak against the Bolts now that Saquon Barkley is back, though, especially with Ja'Marr Chase on his bye.

Predacons (-1) vs. Dumbbums
After starting the season with four straight wins, the Preds have now dropped their last two (and they were on the wrong end of the biggest blowout last week). They should be able to get things back on track after this one since the entire 'Bumbs bench is packed with bye week players.

Marauders (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
It's easier to win a game when you have the top two scoring players of the week on your team. Coach Hoss did just that last week, getting 53 points from Tua and Mostert alone. Those two are always a threat to pile up the points, and if Christian McCaffrey is healthy...look out.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
These two teams are just about even. They have identical records and are close in the standings and in point totals. The projections give the Brew Crew the edge, but I think it will be closer than predicted. And it will definitely come down to Monday night.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Despite having their starting QB on the IR and their starting RB ruled out early, FitzCorp rallied to somehow pick up a win against out second place team last week. They were 24 point underdogs and won by 8. I didn't believe the MNF comeback then. And I don't believe they can repeat that feat (even though they have a full, healthy lineup this week).

And the game of the week...

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
After a tough start to the year, the Phenoms come into this one hot after winning their last two. Byes will play a part and the matchups are predicting low totals, but perhaps the CAPS can be on the winning end of a primetime comeback this week? Either way it's going to be close.

Good luck this week.
