FORECAST:

 

After a 9 win season and making it to the Conference Championship game last year, the JUGGS add Boyd and Robb Kelley in the draft to try to win another championship. Looks like another 9 win season and playoff birth for the JUGGS.

 

The ASSASSINS wheeled and dealed their way through the draft this year after a disappointing 5 win season. Adding Coleman and Howard will be key in the retooling. Look for 7 wins this year.

 

JUGGERNAUTS dominate this series. Is this the year the ASSASSINS change that? After the season for the ages Cam had last year what more can he do. The JUGGS are getting older but still have plenty of kick left.

FORECAST:

PANTHERS only won 1 game last season, but with a draft featuring Zeke, Doctson, Fuller, and Thomas and the reemergence of RG III look for a 6 or 7 win season.

 

After a 4 win season the SNICKERS look to add on with Treadwell and White joining an already strong receiving corp. 7 wins are there for the taking.

 

PANTHERS get Zeke and also get RG III back this year. Do the SNIKCERS have enough healthy players this season?

FORECAST:

 

MONSTERS missed out on the playoffs last season on tie breakers. Lynch may not help early but the stashed Josh Gordon may. Look for a repeat 7 win season.

 

The CRUSHERS also missed out on the playoffs on tie breakers. The addition of DeAngelo will help early but this looks like a top 3 draft pick team.

 

CRUSHERS “like that” but the MONSTERS Gurley and maybe Josh now should be too much to handle.

FORECAST:

 

WEYRMEN won 7 last season and made the playoffs. The draft was okay, but they missed out being a round slow. Without Megatron maybe they can hold on for 7 wins.

 

8BALLS won 10 last year and made it to the FANTASY BOWL. With the addition of Dixon and with Kelvin coming back they look to repeat. 10 win is the floor for these guys.

 

WEYRMEN are not as good as last season and the 8BALLS look to be better. 8BALLS always seem to beat the WEYRMEN lately anyway.

FORECAST:

 

BEANTOWN won 7 last season and they should do so again. Solid if not exciting pickups should help them maintain.

 

BRAWLERS won 10 last season and look even more potent this year. Yeldon and Matthews should keep them with 10 wins and maybe get them a CC win and a birth in the Fantasy Bowl.

 

BEANS loses out on Brady for 4 weeks. Can Big Ben hold them over? BRAWLERS always look to be one of the top teams. Is this the year they put it all together?

FORECAST:

 

HUNTERS had problems last year winning only 3 games. The Sankey/Manziel flops really hurt. Adding Dak gives some pizzazz but it will be the addition of veterans like Vincent who determine if this teams wins more games.

 

GUNS won only 3 last season, but added an exciting rookie in Sheppard. With Jameis a year older look for 5 wins this year.

 

Dak having a good game will make the GUNS a happy loser this week.

FORECAST:

 

GANGSTERS look to improve on a 4 win season by adding Henry, Prosise, and Sharpe. With Luck back they should get to 7 wins this season.

 

SUDS one year after winning the title dropped to 5 wins. The only real addition being Booker but with Mariota in year two look for a 7 win season.

 

GANSTERS have Luck and TY, to combat Mariota and Beckham/Evans. I’ll take Luck in this one.

FORECAST:

 

LOD won 10 games last year but lost in the Conference Championship. Adding Forte and Charles is a win now move for sure. 10 wins again looks to be about right.

 

CHAMPION AXEMEN came from the Wild Card and hit a hot streak to take it all. They were not able to add much in the draft but a 7 win season should be attainable, and that just might get them a Wild Card birth again.

 

LOD are stacked. Old but stacked. AXEMEN look to defend their title but the DOOM will take the early season matchup
