And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 5:

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Lightning
I know it's early, but the losing team in this one is going to end up 1-4 with an uphill climb for a postseason spot. Their point totals are almost exactly the same so far but it looks like it will come down to QB play this week. That's not good news for Tom Brady and the Bolts.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
An even matchup all the way, we'll get a hint of things to come after the Thursday night game. Then things are spread out all the way until Monday night. The edge goes to FitzCorp because I'm sure at least one of the Vipers' players will end up out with their injury.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Our fight for last place might just be the most entertaining game of the week. The Brewers came back to life last week and scored the most points in the league, while the Stompers are coming off of two straight weeks of putting up 40 or less. Coach Bev has at least one player in every time slot but it going to be an uphill battle.

the HAW (-1) vs. Predacons
Jamaal Charles scored his first fantasy points of the season last week, putting the rest of the Preds on his back and leading them to an improbable comeback victory to stay unbeaten. That type of luck will change this week, when Andrew Luck and the CAPS continue their high scoring ways.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Peyton Manning is back from his bye week, but the 'Bums are going to need all the help they can get as the top scoring Marauders come to town. Coach Hoss' team is on pace to score 1000 points this year and it doesn't seem to matter which QB they choose. Is this the week that makes the difference?

And the game of the week...

The Comfy Chair (-1/2) vs Renegades
A good matchup from the start, this one will focus on the high-flying QBs and boom-or-bust TEs. It will definitely go down to the wire with all eyes on MNF as Seattle's D tries to complete the comfy comeback.

Good luck this week.
