And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 7:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Four 'Morons are on a bye this week so things are looking a bit thin for them. And four Renegades play in the primetime games. So I'm thinking a comeback is already in the works. And just so everyone knows that picking up a player from waivers is only half the battle. Putting him in your lineup is the other (and most important) half.

Lightning (-1) vs. Misfits, Inc.
The 'Bolts went through a cold front last week but should rebound against the concussed FitzCorp this week. Still, it will be anyone's game until they turn out the lights in Dallas on Monday night. As long as the Corporation picks up a third WR (whether or not he is named Mike Williams).

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
With the Saints playing Cleveland at home this week, things might be ripe for the Vipers to finally break out as a team. Meanwhile the Brewers have been tied to the fate of Chris Johnson and will be again. But this week will all come down to a 2 vs. 2 battle on Monday night. Should be a good one.

ray ray haw (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
All signs point to a haw victory, but I'm not so sure. With Arian Foster and Pierre Garcon on a bye this might be a perfect week for the Stompers to steal a win. If they do it will be thanks to an Adrian Peterson comeback on Sunday night.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The first place and highest scoring team in the 3FL is playing the last place and (almost) lowest scoring team this week. So why are the 'Bums favored in this one? Collie, Tomlinson and Peyton Manning are on a bye, that's why. If it's not this week then it's never.

And the game of the week...

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Marauders are reeling after losing five in a row after a win in week one. They'll have to start a streak in the other direction (and soon) to have any shot at making the playoffs. This could be the week Coach Hoss turns things around since the Preds might not know what to do when they're not a double digit underdog.

Good luck this week.
