Week 9 Information

Bye Week: Arizona, Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, New England, Washington

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

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Bolts have been pretty underwhelming this season and having a ton of bye week players plus injuries this week isn't going to help. But they've managed to hit the waiver wire and put together quite a squad for their game against the Preds. And if Big Ben returns it could be even better.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
The big bye week will have a major effect on this game but it's still going to be a great matchup. Tom Brady is on the bye list so this one will be closer than Yahoo! thinks, but the Stompers' RBs won't do enough for the W.

Renegades (-1) vs. Spiked Vipers
Just looking at the Renegades lineup makes you wonder how this team only has one win so far. They'll double that unlucky total this week against SpiVi (finding replacement RBs this week was a tough task) and they just might play the spoiler more than once during the stretch run.

Misfits, Inc. (-1) vs. Dumbbums
These two may have the same record but this game isn't going to be close. Most of their bench is on a bye, but FitzCorp is still going to put up over 100 points to keep their league leading scoring average above the century mark.

Baltimorons (-1) vs. Yuengling Brewers
An early favorite for blowout of the week, this one shouldn't have too much drama for the 'Morons. If the Brew Crew can field a full lineup things will be closer, but just the QB and WR positions might be all that Coach Drew needs.

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Marauders
The Marauders are still at the top of the standings but they haven't been dominant over the past few weeks. They'll get all they can handle in this one as PEP has some great matchups on the schedule. Coach Hoss' lineup choices and Christine Michael on MNF will be the difference.

Good luck this week.
