And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 9:

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
All of the Preds WRs are Q this week. And even bigger than that, it's looking like only one of their draft picks will make it to the starting lineup. One. Meanwhile the Bolts top 11 picks are still with the team and make up a majority of their starters. That should tell you all you need to know about this one.

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Don't look now, but FitzCorp is on the way up. After a terrible start they have won three of their last four and have climbed into our final playoff qualifying spot. The Brew Crew is also doing well lately, but they won't get another record breaking performance from Eli.

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Drew Brees scored 48 points last week, coming in second all time for individual player points in one week. He would have beaten three teams by himself. That won't happen again, but the Stompers have a good shot to beat their twin rivals if they actually put active players in their lineup. If not can I change my pick?

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
Even though this game features our two lowest ranked teams it should be competitive. The 'Bums have five players on a bye and will need to do some add/drops to fill up their starting roster. SpiVi will rely on a big Monday night comeback for a chance at a win. No matter what happens the loser is going to have trouble earning a playoff spot.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. the HAW
Wow, there are a lot of great games on the schedule this week! Our third and fourth ranked teams go head-to-head in a matchup that will come down to a kicker on MNF. Will Coach Hoss pick the right QB? Is having three Steelers playing for your team a good idea or a bad one? We'll find out.

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Our two top teams face off in the GotW this week and it should be a good one. After winning their first six straight the 'Morons have lost two in a row and watched PEP take over the top spot. Coach Drew just lost Le'Veon Bell and Keenan Allen for the season but they'll still put up a fight here. The winner is our outright #1.

Good luck this week.
