Remember that the byes are starting. Who can you afford to keep on your active roster?

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 4:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
A loss is coming for one of these 3-0 teams. It's going to be a great battle, but who would bet against the league's top scoring Brew Crew? A win this week will take them to eight straight victories going back to last season's final week of the regular season.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
FitzCorp will finally get their first win of the season and be on the positive side of a prime time comeback. Unless the 'Bums can keep up their 80+ point momentum. Actually it wouldn't be surprising to have the corporation score 100 and Coach Coaldog put up 101 just for fun.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. Baltimorons
How are the 'Morons still undefeated? It doesn't matter. SpiVi will take care of that situation this week, venting some frustration after a tough divisional loss last week. Plus, half of Coach Drew's squad is injured and unavailable.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Well, I had to pick one of these two to win. Flipped a coin. What is going on? These teams should both be scoring more points and doing better than sharing a single win between them. Is this the week one of them breaks out? That depends on who the starting QBs are...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
With three players going tonight, the Bolts will give us a pretty good early idea of where their week is heading. Meanwhile, I hope that the Chair isn't banking on a big game from Kevin Ogletree on Monday night. But there's always Tom Brady to make the prime time games merely meaningless.

And the game of the week...

THE Haw (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Will the anger from Monday night's referee debacle loss push Aaron Rodgers to finally start playing like a #1 pick? I'm not sure, but I'm not picking the Renegades to win again until they show that they can put up more than a couple of points in a week. Plus THE Haw are leading the West division and ready for a big Sunday night.

Good luck this week.
