And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 11:

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
Every team in the South is 4-6 (and 1-1 against each other), so the winner here will take over the lead in the division through Thanksgiving day. A lot of it will come down to managerial decisions with projections being too close to call. It's going to be interesting to watch those benches.

Predacons (-1) vs. Baltimorons
The Preds dropped another one last week and have a losing record once again. These two have scored the exact same number of points so far this season (866), but Coach Sinkerbeam has an edge this week thanks to the matchups. Although those projections don't seem to mean much to him lately...

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Don't sleep on the Bolts. After a tough start to the season they have won their last two and are only a game away from being in the thick of the playoff race. The CAPS are headed in the other direction and could really use a win in this divisional matchup. Big Ben vs. Brady will tell the story.

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
I know that FitzCorp is averaging more than 105 points per week while SpiVi is hovering under 80, but between byes and PED suspensions this one is looking like the upset special of the month. Or maybe not. Either way it will be close, with the final coming before any prime time games begin.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
You'd think that the game between the first and last teams in the standings would have an obvious conclusion, but that's not the case here. Coach Val is only 1/2 game behind the current final playoff spot in the standings. Not that an upset is a sure thing but the Marauders have a bench full of byes so it's not out of the realm of possibility.

And the game of the week...

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The top spot in the West is at stake as these two evenly matched teams meet again. The Stompers won easily in week one but this will be a much tougher task thanks to the bye weeks. We'll know a lot more after tonight's game, as four combined players will be on the field. Can Drew Brees keep up his league leading point total?

Good luck this week.
