My Prediction Record to Date: 
7-5

HHH (2-0) vs Pack Attack (0-2)

A matchup of two teams who couldn’t have had a more opposite start to the season. HHH has had two excellent games to start out the season and Pack Attack has had two terrible games. Hence the reason that HHH currently sits atop the standings while Pack Attack is at the bottom! This is a big game for Pack Attack as starting out 0-3 is a tough road to travel while HHH will be looking to keep the momentum going and move to a 3-0 start. This should be a good one!

Prediction:
Check out the Yahoo predictions for this one.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
Pack Attack currently owns a 12-3 advantage in their 15 regular season meetings. The average PPG are about as lopsided as Pack Attack averages 121.63 ppg to HHH’s 98.23.


16hrs Ahead of You (1-1) vs DaUnderdog (0-2)

16hrs ahead of you came away with the big win last week and will be looking to keep that momentum going against the winless DaUnderdog squad. DaUnderdog like Pack Attack don’t want anything to do with starting the season at 0-3. 16hrs will be looking to ride the momentum of last weeks win while DaUnderdog is just looking for that spark to get them over the hump and get that first W.

Prediction:
I think that the RB Duo of Melvin Gordon and Kareem Hunt is one of the best in the league and it will keep 16hrs in most games but I expect that Gordon to struggle a bit this week against the Rams and not to mention they will likely be playing from behind. DaUnderdog  has been getting steady production from Brees and D. Adams but they are going to need others on their team to step up. Last week Hogan and Ridley were solid to make for a lot of production out of their WR’s but they will now need a RB or two to step up and help get the win. I do think that DaUnderdog figures out a way to sneak out their first win of the season here. DaUnderdog by 15 points.

Historical Look at this Match-Up:
These two teams have met 16 other times in the regular season and they are in a dead heat at 8-8. 16hrs holds a slight ppg edge in those meetings, 101.85 – 98.65.

 

Big Papa (2-0) vs PackerFANatic7 (1-1)

Both teams are coming off of huge wins in their last week matchups. Big Papa dominated Rapids Plungers and PackerFANatic7 didn’t give Pack Attack a chance. Big Papa has no doubt been one of the best teams in the league through two weeks and you could easily make the argument that he has been the best team in the league. PackerFANatic7 despite their 1-1 record have the 4th highest points scored through two weeks and record tells one story but the points tell another. The story being told right now is that these are two of the best teams after week 2. I am excited to see who comes out on top of this one.

Prediction:
PackerFANatic7 is going to need big games from Cole and Fuller if they want to compete in this one however I don’t see them having the same impact as they did last week. For Big Papa, the matchups certainly look to be in their favor as Cousins against Buffalo at home might through for another 4+ TD’s and Thomas right now it is almost a given he catches 10+ passes. Look for Big Papa to not only win this one but win it with relative ease.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
In their only regular season meeting Big Papa defeated PackerFANatic7 111.31 – 101.86.

 

Bossman (1-1) vs BIGBOY! (0-2)

Both teams come into this one off of tough losses last week. They are however different in that Bossman was the lowest scoring team in the league last week and BIGBOY! had the second highest losing score of the week. All that means is that BIGBOY! was one of the best losers! Congrats! I am sure their coach is starting to stare a little longer at that Championship trophy from a year ago and soon if they don’t start getting some wins you may have catch him sleeping with it as he knows it is only a matter of time before someone else takes that off of his hands. Is this the week however that the defending champ gets their first win or will Bossman send them to a tough 0-3 hole?

Prediction:
BIGBOY! picked up Fitzmagic from the free agent pool and will hope that he can continue some of that stellar play! McCaffrey has also been solid but they are going to need consistent big performances from OBJ for them to get back to where they want to be and with Grandpa Eli throwing the ball I am not sure that is going to happen. This match up however is interesting. I am not yet sure if Fournette plays which if he does that is a big boost for Bossman. I think I am going to go with BIGBOY! to get their first win of the season. I expect BIGBOY! to be down by 10 points going into Monday night and who else but newly aquired FitzMAGIC comes through to lead them to victory!

Historical Look at this Match-Up
In their previous 8 regular season meetings they are tied at 4-4. Bossman however leads the scoring average 125.58 to 114.94.

 

pack slayer (2-0) vs Rapids Plungers (1-1)

pack slayer as I mentioned in last weeks recap is the quietest 2-0 team in the league right now but something tells me that a couple more wins and things will start to get a little more noisy when talking about the pack slayer squad. Rapids Plungers is a 0.35 points away from a 0-2 start and you can tell are still trying to find that right combination of players that can put things together for them. Can Rapids Plungers give pack slayer their first loss of the season and put themselves back near the top of the leaderboard or will pack slayer continue their strong start by moving to 3-0 and sending Rapids Plungers “plunging” to the bottom of the league standings…

Prediction:
pack slayer is projected by Yahoo as the #1 scoring team this week. I am not sure that I agree with that but this is a team that doesn’t have a lot of weaknesses and in any given week I could see different players stepping up. In addition, they have the homerun threats of Julio Jones and Mike Evans that can carry a team during a down week. I expect another solid outing from pack slayer and I think they have too many weapons for Rapids to keep up. pack slayer moves to 3-0 and become a bit more noticeable as they stay near the top of the standings.

Historical Look at this Match-Up
Rapids Plungers currenly holds a 4-3 edge in their previous 7 meetings. pack slayer however holds a slight edge in ppg average, 125.84 – 121.23.


PackMan12 (2-0) vs teamAlaska (0-2)

PackMan12 has been having an OK season… who am I kidding? This team has left zero questions of who the best team has been through two weeks. Of course, things change quickly in the NFL and fantasy football world but right now this is your best team in the league. teamAlaska had a strong performance last week in a losing effort and they now have a tough task ahead and that is to slow down the PackMan12 team that has all the momentum in the world.

Prediction:
I can’t help but wonder what this teamAlaska squad would look like if they had Bell on their team. You would think that time is coming so they just need to find a way to get some wins without him. I however don’t see that happening this week. I expect another solid performance from PackMan12 however I could see this game being closer then you might expect. I certainly wouldn’t be surprised to see teamAlaska in the lead after Sunday’s games but PackMan12 has a lot of firepower on Monday with Roethlisberger, JuJu and TJ Watt all going. PackMan12 with win #3.

Historical Look at this Match-UP
PackMan12 holds a 5-2 edge in their previous 7 meetings. They also have an edge in ppg at 122.63 to 104.85.

 

U Don’t Know (2-0) vs Sportsfreak (0-2)

This is the 3rd matchup of the week that has a undefeated team playing a winless team. U Don’t Know has been cruising through two weeks and will be looking to keep that up against a Sportsfreak squad that has really had a hard time getting anything going through the first two weeks. However, it didn’t help that he left the MVP of the NFL (through two weeks) in Mahomes on the bench both of those weeks. I see he has him in the starting lineup this week. Will that be the spark they need to get that first W of the season or will U Don’t Know continue their fast start?

Prediction:
Despite the records, I expect this to be one of the better games of the week. Sportsfreak gets a boost with Bernard now the #1 while Mixon is out for the next several of weeks. Gurley should have a monster game for U Don’t Know and not to mention I expect solid games from Thielen and A. Robinson. Here are some very specific predictions for this one:  #1) JJ Watt has a 20+ point game for U Don’t Know. #2) Mahomes has a solid game but slows down a bit from the previous two weeks. #3) U Don’t Know wins by 5 points. #4) D. Watson who is now being benched in favor of the Hot hand in Mahomes outscores Mahomes by 10 points this week. So yes, that means that had Sportsfreak started D. Watson he would have got the win. It’s started out as that kind of year for Sportsfreak!

Historical Look at this Match-Up
Sportsfreak holds a 8-4 edge in their previous 12 meetings. Sportsfreak also holds a average ppg edge of 117.11 to 100.98

Enjoy the games everyone!
