Bye weeks are over. Thank goodness.

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Predacons
These two have the same record and are just about even in scoring. And they both have qualified for the playoffs yet again. They'll only be fighting for seeding but having a combined eight players going on Thanksgiving will be entertaining.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
The Phenoms have clinched the West and are on a five game winning streak. In fact, they haven't lost a game since week 1. They know about the curse, right? Are they trying to earn the top seed? Their march continues against SpiVi this week, one week after Coach Nick surprised everyone and outscored the league. That probably won't happen again.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. the HAW
Aaron Rodgers did his best, but his fantasy team is going to miss the playoffs this year. The 'Bums can at least get off to a good start against our defending champs with a big Thursday showing, but this one is going to come down to prime time. It's almost too close to call.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
Coach Hoss still has a shot at the top spot in the league but the Stompers have other plans. The matchups actually make this one quite competitive, especially if the Marauders don't get around to swapping out some players before the holiday sneaks up on us.

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
So the Brew Crew qualified for the postseason this year, but it's possible that they could end the season with a losing record. The Renegades have had a really down year made worse by watching PEP's run of success. And probably hearing about it constantly. Ugh.

And the game of the week...

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Lighting
The Bolts still have a shot at the North Division and they'll have to go through the 'Morons to get it. Coach Drew finally got back on the winning track last week but saw another RB go down to injury. With 5 Qs and 1 O between them, the winner of this one might be the team who actually sees their players take the field.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
