FORECAST:

 

Last met up in ’08, doubt any of those players are left in this one (since Big Ben is hurt). 8Balls are a scoring machine right now and have Leveon back and running. Brady makes his BEANTOWN debut (where he always should have been). Let’s see if a properly inflated ball keeps the 8Balls in the win column.

FORECAST:

 

It does not look good for the WEYRMEN this week. In their first meeting since ’05 the WEYRMEN catch the BRAWLERS scoring about 100 a week. Ouch. The BRAWLERS have to like that Randle pick up right now.

FORECAST:

 

TOP GUNS are an up and down team right now. Except for defense that’s just downright pathetic. CRUSHERS looking alright right now and look for some back to step it up (do you hear me muscle hamster – or is it Teddy Bear Hamster now).

FORECAST:

 

MONSTERS were back if only for a moment. HUNTERS looking to make it 2 in a row with a win here. Matt Jones has scored 26 fantasy points in 4 games, 30 of those points came against the weyrmen, but at least Gurley should play this week. It may come down to Cobb vs Jones in which case the weyrmen’s Arron Rodgers decides this matchup.

FORECAST:

 

This is the first game between these two franchises. A tale of opposites here. GANSTERS are really struggling (or is it scuffling – I asked this in the college league also – does someone know) to field a full team right now. The JUGGS are only struggling to win by 30.

FORECAST:

 

Someone has got to win this one. The CHAMPION SUDS are not scoring yet. Evans and ODB have more punches thrown than scores, and I haven’t seen Evans throw a punch. The ASSASSINS players are putting up yards but need to find the end zone. As for D at least the SUDS have one.

FORECAST:

 

Two evenly matched teams. That won’t be for long if the SNICKERS 1st rounders start playing though. The AXEMEN have Dalton who is on fire right now but need some more offensive help. Likewise the SNICKERS have Palmer lighting it up (still using Wilson though) but help is on the way as Abdullah and Parker get more reps.

FORECAST:

 

DOOMIE is a machine. These guys can put up the numbers. At least for the PANTHERS AP is not AD this week. But DOOMIE still has AJ to go against his former team. The PANTHERS need a big game from Edleman and whoever the 2nd QB is to stay in this one. The PANTHERS have won the last 4 meetings, the last one in ’08.
