Bye Week: None

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

Spiked Vipers (-1/2) vs. Lightning
Despite being fifth in the league in scoring, SpiVi is tenth in the standings. This game might come down to the health of D'Andre Swift. And if Josh Dobbs can engineer another comeback - this time for the Vipers on Monday night.

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
It has not been a fun month for the Stompers. They're last in the league, have the lowest point total and have lost six in a row. And still they're only two games out of a postseason spot with three weeks to go. They'll have to hope Justin Jefferson is back in order to have a chance against the Thursday heavy CAPS. But you're saying there's a chance?

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Phys. Ed. Phenoms
If the season ended right now, all the East Division teams would be in the playoffs. It's almost a shame they have to play against each other in these last few weeks. This game will be closer than it appears because it is unlikely the Preds will pick the correct Flex player or Defense.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
Only one game separates these two divisional foes (and 159 points). But that doesn't matter this week as it could really go either way (as long as the Corporation has a chance to optimize their lineup before the games start). Here's something I never thought I would type: The Marauders need big games from their Dolphins on Friday at 3pm.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
The 'Bums can enjoy Thanksgiving without worrying about their lineup; they don't have any active players until Sunday. Coach Val will have bookends to the game, with two on Thursday and her QB on MNF. And if Kyren Williams returns (as is expected) this week it should tip the scales in her favor.

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
Wow, this is going to be a good one. The Brew Crew is holding on to the top spot and they've won their last six in a row. But the 'Morons have the highest projected total for the week and are definitely in position to break that streak. It will be even more entertaining since there is a player in every single one of the eight NFL time slots.

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck this week!
