The league is perfectly tiered after three weeks of competition. And things are about to get more interesting - six NFL teams are on a bye this week, so many 3FL teams will be starting second and third stringers.

Kind of like the Steelers...

Week 4 Information

The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 4:

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Normally having Carson Palmer as your QB would be a good thing. But this year he has dropped to a role as a bye week fill in for the 'Bums. With B.Westbrook questionable and some favorable matchups, the Renegades should be able to even out their record at 2-2.

ray ray haw (-1) vs. Predacons
The haw saw their 5 man bench outscore their 9 man starting 12 points. That won't happen again this week (since 4 of 5 on his bench are on a bye), and they should cruise to victory over the J.T. O'Sullivan led Preds.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
Even though the Chair now has the Farve-Stuckey hook up, the 'Morons should be able to squeak by based on J.Cutler's easy matchup. Plus, TO won't be held scoreless for two weeks in a row. Right?

Misfits (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
The Brewers have not yet earned a win this season, and running into Minc. with some soft matchups this week will not change things. After only 3 weeks the Misfits have scored twice as many points as the Brewers. The Steelers/Ravens Defensive matchup on MNF will be fun to watch, but this game will probably be over before that one begins.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss has some things to do before Sunday's games. Like hit the free agent pool and give an inspiring speech to the Steelers offensive line. The Vipers have no significant injuries or bye week holes, and they'll have a chance to sit back and enjoy the games.

And the game of the week...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Rough Riders
The RBs of these two teams go head-to-head on Monday night to determine the victor. Coach Thad has a WR in his pocket for prime time, too, and that could make the difference. As long as D.Anderson can remain the starter in Cleveland for one more game...

Good luck this week.
