Can Bossman continue their dominance and win their 12th straight regular season game?
Will the 4 remaining undefeated teams stay that way after this week is complete?
Will 16hrs double their win total from a year ago with a win this week?

All those questions answered and more in this week’s preview!

HHH (2-0) vs Pack Attack (0-2)

HHH comes into this one riding the huge amount of momentum that last weeks win brought and they will be looking to continue this week against one of the 4 remaining winless teams in Pack Attack. HHH has made the playoffs for three straight years and will be looking for a 4th this season. The one thing that they have been doing an excellent job of in those years is starting fast. In a 14 team league where bye weeks and injuries play a big role in how your team may look from week to week starting fast is extremely important. HHH will be looking to continue that this week as they look to remain undefeated while Pack Attack is just looking to weather the storm of injuries and somehow find a way to pull off the upset!

Bossman (2-0) vs Sportsfreak (0-2)

Matchup #2 where a undefeated team is going up against a winless team. Yes I know it is only week 3 but losing here and seeing your opponent move to 3-0 while you move to 0-3… not fun and that is a lot of ground to make up over the course of the next 9 weeks. Saying that Bossman is coming into this one with momentum is probably putting it too lightly. They last lost a regular season game on 10/1/19! They have now won 11 in a row and with a win here they would own the third longest regular season winning streak in league history! Interestingly enough the team they are facing, Sportsfreak owns the second longest (14 in a row) back in the 2016 – 2017 seasons. Right now though Sportsfreak would be good with just one of those wins as they look to avoid an 0-3 start!

Prediction:
Once again we need to talk injuries as there are two big ones and they both involve Sportsfreak. Those would be G. Kittle and D. Adams! These are two of their best players and with these two players playing it will be tough for Sportsfreak to win but without them not impossible but highly unlikely! The good news is that as of now both look like they will play so for the sake of predicting this game I am going to assume they will both be going. I think Sportsfreak has a legitimate shot here. I like Murray’s matchup against Det and I expect DJ Moore to build on his solid performance from a week ago. I say that however I don’t think they win this one. Bossman and their team has looked unstoppable and until they cool down a bit it is going to be hard to pick against them. I am going to pick Bossman to win this one and extend their winning streak to 12 in a row!

BIGBOY! (2-0) vs Big Papa (1-1)

These are always some of my favorite games! The Father/Son matchup’s! Both teams are off to good starts as BIGBOY! has yet to lose and Big Papa despite the one loss has actually scored more points then BIGBOY! through two games. If you look at the historical #’s BIGBOY! has the upper hand but I can’t help but wonder if that has something to do with BIGBOY! being a youngster living at home and offering their Dad bogus trades in order to stack their team!? This should be a good one as BIGBOY! looks to stay atop the league while Big Papa will be looking to continue something he has been doing for years (just not on the fantasy football field)… teach BIGBOY! a lesson or two!

Prediction:
The first thing I am doing for every game this week is starting with injuries and the team that has fewer automatically starts looking better for the win. In this one, that team is BIGBOY! however as I look closely I am not expecting any of those players with the “Q” tag for Big Papa to miss time. I am looking forward to this one as I expect a relatively high scoring game. If there is a game to circle for BIGBOY! it is Dallas vs Seattle as they have C. Carson and Zeke going in that one. I expect both Zeke and Carson to have solid games but for BIGBOY! I think they are going to need their WR’s to step up and play over projection to get the win here. I think this is the week that K. Drake goes over 100 and scores a TD but I am not sure that will be quite enough! Look for Big Papa to be down by 25 going into the Monday nighter and C. Edwards-Helaire and S. Watkins won’t be able to close the gap! BIGBOY! wins and remains undefeated on the season.

Historical Look at this Match-Up: 

  • Regular Season Match-ups: 10
  • Record: Advantage BIGBOY! at 7-3
  • PPG Avg: Advantage BIGBOY! 133.96 to 112.83


Rapids Plungers (0-2) vs DaUnderdog (0-2)

The narrative in this one is simple. Two teams both of which are 0-2 and both needing a win! DaUnderdog saw their season take a massive hit as they lost S. Barkley for the year and not to mention they were already without L. Bell who landed on IR after week 1. This is a team that is just trying anyway possible to stay afloat and salvage their season. The outlook doesn’t look so bad on the other side of the ball as Rapids Plungers despite their 0-2 record is still trying to piece together their team as they look to hit their stride when it matters most BUT falling to 0-3 is not something they had in mind and a win here is important.

Prediction:
DaUnderdog is still trying to figure out who will be starting for their team this week so it is hard to evaluate this game fully right now OR maybe that makes it simple as the players he will be putting in will be guys that they are taking flyers on and hoping they outperform projections. I think Rapids Plungers team is starting to take shape and I expect them to get the win here and avoid the 0-3 hole.

Historical Look at this Match-Up: 

  • Regular Season Match-ups: 12
  • Record: Advantage Rapids Plungers at 9-3
  • PPG Avg: Advantage Rapids Plungers 125.96 to 106.98


PackerFANatic7 (1-1) vs teamAlaska (1-1)

PackerFANatic7 will be looking to build on their first win of the season however I don’t expect it to be easy as they are up against a teamAlaska squad that despite their 1-1 record has the second most points scored in the league. You don’t have to look far to understand where the points are coming from as through two weeks they have the #1 scoring QB (R. Wilson), #2 scoring RB (Kamara), and the # 5 scoring WR (R. Anderson). Ok so R. Anderson at the #5 WR is not expected to last but it has certainly helped them thus far! PackerFANatic7 got the win last week but I am not convinced they have things figured out just yet. A win here would certainly be a big momentum builder.

Prediction:
I will admit before I started looking closely at this game I assumed I would be picking teamAlaska to win. However, now that I have spent some time it is not quite as clear as I thought it might be. I am still going to pick teamAlaska because they have R. Wilson and A. Kamara and I trust both of those players this week more then any player on PackerFANatic7’s side but I expect that PackerFANatic7 hangs around in this one. In the end though, Kamara will finish the deal on Sunday night if he has to and teamAlaska gets win #2.

Historical Look at this Match-Up: 

  • Regular Season Match-ups: 3
  • Record: Advantage teamAlaska at 2-1
  • PPG Avg: Advantage teamAlaska 120.16 to 104.18  

Starrfavrerodg (1-1) vs 16hrs Ahead of You!! (1-1)

Starrfavrerodg is coming off their first ever win last week while 16hrs is coming off of a heartbreaking loss! The momentum of that would certainly seem to be in Starrfavrerodg’s favor but 16hrs played well so it will be interesting to see how they perform in this weeks game. Injuries are a thing for a lot of teams right now and they are for 16hrs as they have a # of players with the questionable tag while Starrfavrerodg has been fortunate to avoid any major injuries to this point. It is week 3 but 16hrs will be looking to double their win total from last season with a win this week!

Prediction:
This is a hard one to predict with not knowing 100% the status of a few of the players for 16hrs but I am going to make some assumptions and in doing so I feel the best about Starrfavrerodg in this one. I do think that N. Chubb and the M. Ryan / J. Jones combination make this one interesting but Starrfavrerodg and their team look healthy and poised for back to back wins! Starrfavrerodg with the W!

U Don’t Know (2-0) vs pack slayer (1-1)

This is a game against two really good teams. The injury bug hit pack slayer hard as the #1 overall pick in C. McCaffrey went down due to injury and now is on IR. I would have love to see this game with McCaffrey a part of it as it would have made it that much better. U Don’t Know has been rolling and right now I would put their lineup up against just about anyone’s. The thing I like the most is I don’t see many weaknesses which means you likely won’t see the terrible 80 point game from this team and you will eventually see the blow up game where they go off for 180! I think some of the same things could be said for a pack slayer team as well I am just not as confident with their players BUT McCaffrey when playing can make up the difference.

Prediction:
It is going to be hard for me to pick against U Don’t Know and a pack slayer team without McCaffrey doesn’t look nearly as dangerous. I think U Don’t Know moves to 3-0 and stays atop the standings while pack slayer falls to a tough luck 1-2.

Historical Look at this Match-Up: 

  • Regular Season Match-ups: 9
  • Record: Advantage U Don’t Know at 6-3
  • PPG Avg: Advantage U Don’t Know 120.55 to 105.37
