After just four weeks, every team already has at least one win. And we must be setting a record for waiver claims. The transactions board is lit up every Wednesday morning.

Also, the Tim-A's (managed by our own External Consultant to the Misfits) won the FMLB Championship. Congratulations! Will his winning ways carry over to the 3FL postseason?

Monday Night: Baltimore Ravens @ Denver Broncos
Bye Week: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Houston, Seattle



The Comm-nosticator's predictions for week 5:

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Renegades
The Renegades have to do something fast to keep the season from slipping away. The problem, however, is that the Fantasy Hockey season has just started, so any External Consultant help is going to be hard to find. And the Baltimorons are looking pretty solid this week.

Misfits (-2) vs. Rough Riders
The Riders have been scoring fewer and fewer points each week since the beginning of the season. That's not going to cut it against the team with the highest point total in the league. Even if Westbrook remains really Questionable.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Lightning
It's a shame, because this would have been a good matchup if it wasn't for Carson Palmer's bye week. But as it is, some random QB will have to pretend to fill in for the Lightning. Plus, I'm not sure Coach Hoss can handle another Monday Night heartbreaker.

Predacons (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Preds are undefeated after four weeks? What is going on here? Their luck has to come to an end soon, right? Probably not this week. Peyton Manning is playing against the Titans.

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
I think that this week may bring the first loss for the Chair after seven consecutive wins. But I've learned my lesson about making Coach Skrabby an underdog. Be sure to keep tabs on MNF anyway. It could make things interesting.

And the game of the week...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. ray ray haw
This one is too close to call, but I have to type something here. I'm giving the edge to "hoping the Steelers turn this thing around" and the fact that the appendix-less, helmet-less one has to throw a TD pass at some point.

Good luck this week.

Go vote.
