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

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Renegades
When your team is struggling the last thing you need is to have your starting QB benched in the middle of his game. Of course we can trace the Renegades difficulty this year all the way back to the drafting of Le'Veon Bell. Who is still on their bench for some reason. Are they advocating a keeper league for next year?

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
These two teams are headed in opposite directions and this game is actually for the division lead in the East. That would have been crazy talk just two weeks ago. The Corporation has been leaning heavily on Pat Mahomes, but he's on a bye this week. That makes things more difficult but all those Brew Crew Qs will help.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds are still in first place and are now two games up with two games to go. The Bolts would put themselves in a great spot with a win here. It will be an even matchup but Coach Sinkerbeam has so many players today that it will be stressful watching as the Lightning finish the comeback 4 1/2 days from now on MNF.

Dumbbums (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
It has to be hard watching one of the most amazing MNF performances happen as a comeback for your week 11 opponent. That leaves the 'Bums hanging on to 7th place but with their best RB on a bye. They should still win, but wouldn't it be fun for the Stompers to make things difficult?

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. the HAW
Things look a little different for our highest scoring team when their best players are all on a bye at the same time. The CAPS will look to replace Gurley, Cooks and Tyreek Hill against SpiVi this week. And Coach Nick is happy with that scheduling, as they need some wins and some help to claw their way into the postseason (even though they have the same record as the three teams above them in the standings).

And the game of the week...

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Whoa. It's not overstating things to say that the whole season may come down to this game for each of these two teams. The winner takes control of the South (and the automatic playoff spot that comes with that) with only one week remaining. PEP is all in, with four waiver claims already on Wednesday morning. We'll all be watching a K on MNF to decide it!

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
