Week 3 Information

Bye Week: None until week 5

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 3:

The Comfy Chair (-1) vs. Stiletto Stompers
These two teams match up evenly across the board, until you compare the RBs. That's enough of an edge to give the Chair their first victory of the year. 1-1-1 has a ring to it.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
After an incredible prime time comeback and a bunch of new injuries you might wonder if the Preds have anything left for this week. But the Lightning have their own problems with players sitting out Wednesday's practice. And they will probably vote for themselves.

Yuengling Brewers (-1) vs. Dumbbums
The five WRs on the 'Bums squad have scored a total of 17 points in our season's first two weeks. And two of them may not play this week (someone please tell Coach Coaldog). The Brewers have only four WRs, and they have scored 39 points so far. That's all you need to know here.

ray ray haw (-1/2) vs. Renegades
What else can happen to the newlyweds this season? For the second straight year they have lost one of their top two picks to a season ending injury in one of the first two weeks. At least they'll have Tom Brady to ease their pain as they try to halt the (tied for) fifth longest winning streak in league history.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Coach Hoss scored 110 points last week and won by more than 30 points. This matchup will be much closer, with Aaron Rodgers and the Pittsburgh Defense trying to edge SpiVi past the league's top scoring team.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
This one will come down to the QB decisions. Both teams have two good ones to pick from, but who will choose correctly? It will also come down to the 'Fitz making a comeback try on Monday night. It should be just enough.

Good luck this week.
