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

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. Yuengling Brewers
This one is going to be close, with the matchups looking just about even across the board. The RBs tilt the scales slightly to FitzCorp but don't count out Russell Wilson. It's looking like we'll have to wait until MNF to crown a victor.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
In just three weeks the CAPS have gone from twelfth place to fifth. That's pretty impressive. A win here might bump them up even more, but it might also keep PEP out of the top eight. Even with that tie.

Predacons (-1) vs. Dumbbums
The Preds have been on the winning side of the Biggest Blowout™ for three out of the last four weeks, and they just took sole possession of the scoring lead. The 'Bums are in last place and are our lowest scoring team. These two played back in week two and the Predacons won (in the Biggest Blowout™of that week). All of this just means it will probably end up Dumbbums by 25.

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Another tie for the Baltimorons this season makes the playoff picture more complicated. The winning team here puts themselves in the mix for a meaningful game next week. The loser might have to start thinking about next year.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Renegades
So the 'Bolts have locked in the top seed and the opportunity to break the curse. Is that a good thing? Their roster this week looks like one that's waiting for the playoffs to start, but they might win anyway. That will only tinker with the postseason hopes of the Renegades.

And the game of the week...

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
There might be a different feeling going into this week had the Stompers taken a quick look at their lineup last week. It looks like they're starting a full lineup this week, but it doesn't help that Pat Mahomes in on a bye and that five other players have a Q next to them. Still, it will be fun matchup that will finish up on Sunday night.

Good luck this week.
