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

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The CAPS winning streak was halted at eight last week by the buzzsaw known as the 'Morons. But Coach HAW looks to start a new one against the unlucky Stompers. Did you know that both teams have scored exactly 281 points so far this season? It's actually going to be a great game to watch, from Thursday all the way until Monday night.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The 'Morons are 4-0 and have outscored the league in each of the past two weeks, setting the record for most points ever scored by a team in a 3FL week. In fact, just four weeks into the season they have have scored 100+ more points than the second leading scorer. That's ridiculous. And there is no reason for it to stop now.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1) vs. Dumbbums
After taking a loss in their first ever 3FL game, PEP has won the last three straight and sits atop the West Division. It helps when your points against is the lowest total in the league. Perhaps that's just a welcome gift from our other teams. Also, Aaron Rodgers called. He's unhappy with starting 1-3.

Lighting (-2) vs. Spiked Vipers
We all know that anything can happen in the 3FL, but this game is looking like my pick of the month. The Bolts are in line for a high scoring week and SpiVi has three starters on a bye. But topping it all off is the possibility that #1 overall pick Andrew Luck is probably out again for tonight's game. And he's the only QB on their roster.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Tom Brady is back after his bye last week allowed Coach Hoss' first loss of the year. The Brew Crew put up the lowest total last week and this week isn't looking much better. Especially considering that neither of their two tight ends will see the field on Sunday. And unless Marshawn Lynch heals up before the games start this could end up a blowout.

And the game of the week...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Renegades
FitzCorp is off to its worst start to a season EVER. A loss this week would extend their losing streak to seven games and put them on our list of longest of all time. It seems the Maasai are no help with fantasy football strategy. It's possible for them to get back on track against the Renegades this week, though, as Coach Val might be distracted after adding a new baby to the team. Welcome Bradley! And congrats Coach Val & Coach Greg!!

Good luck this week.
