Week Six Fantasy Predictions from Nick and Chad

Nick's Record (12-23 overall) (0-10 in points predictions) = 12 points (3-4 in week four)
Chad's Record (20-15 overall) (1-9 in points predictions) = 22 points
(3-4 in week four)

*Lines are subject to change

1.) Team Lowenberg (Nick Lowenberg) (3-2) vs. Wizard Killer (Joe Selbo) (3-2)

Line: Team Lowenberg -32
Nick's Outlook: When everything looked all and dandy for Joe last week, Matt McCarthy sneaked up and grabbed a win with Monday Night Hero Percy Harvin (pictured above). Things don't get better this week as Wizard Killer must depend on Darren Sproles (proj. of 2) because of Tim Hightower and Jonathan Stewart who are on bye weeks. Team Lowenberg should cruise to a win this week with great productions from Adrian Peterson (proj. of 20) and Roddy White (proj. of 14).
Nick's Prediction: Team Lowenberg

Chad's Outlook:
Battle of the 3-2s. Team Lowenberg has R. Brown rushing against a depleted packers defense, Romo passing against a hurt vikings secondary, and Peterson running hard and fast because he’s pissed his team is 1-3. On the other side of the ball, Wizard Killer is having some Bye week issues. 4 on bye will cause him to sub in his last option at running back, D. Sproles who has 11 points on the season. This could turn out to be a rough week for Wizard Killer.
Chad's Prediction: Team Lowenberg

2.) Team Szombatfalvy (Mike Szombatfalvy) (2-3) vs. Team Szmanda (Jason Szmanda) (4-1)

Line: Team Szombatfalvy -14
Nick's Outlook: Mike had a huge week last week by putting up 115 points, the high for the week. His team should keep rolling as Chris Johnson (proj. of 24) plays a bad Jaguars team and Miles Austin (proj. of 15) may just be the best fantasy wideout in the game. Team Szmanda's team is full of Q's meaning there's a chance four of them might not even play and if they do, how effective will they be? Team Szombatfalvy should shake the league up a bit!
Nick's Prediction: Team Szombatfalvy

Chad's Outlook:
So Miles Austin will be on the receiving end of Romo throwing all day against the Vikings and P. Rivers for MVP maybe? C.J.s match up against Jacksonville should turn out real swell. Good thing for Szmanda, Rodgers should be playing this week and against a mediocre Miami defense. Other than Mr. Green-Ellis, Szmanda has some running back concerns. Sitting a hurt Calvin Johnson is probably a good idea against a wicked Giants pass defense that sacked Cutler a 100 times a few weeks ago.
Chad's Prediction: Team Szombatfalvy

3.) Bobby's Bad-Asses (Robert Trader/John Rymaszewski) (1-4) vs. Team Grande (Anthony Grande) (2-3)

Line: Team Grande -28
Nick's Outlook: I hate to keep picking the favorites, but Team Grande looks primed to win after a tough loss last week. I have a feeling Bobby's Bad-Asses are really reaching with Danny Woodhead (proj. of 1) and Dexter McCluster (proj. of 3) this week. I like McCluster as a player a lot actually, but he's not quite fantasy relevant yet. Vince Young (proj. of 17) may have his best match-up of the year and Ahmad Bradshaw (proj. of 18) is finally healthy and ready to run over a Detroit Lions team.
Nick's Prediction: Team Grande

Chad's Outlook:
Team Grande has some pretty decent projections with all his players sitting in double digit territory, BUT we all know projections can be very wrong. Andre Johnson and P. Thomas should both finally be healthy enough this week to post up some numbers for Grande. The reason why I thought A. Rodgers going as the 1st overall pick (or any QB) was so absurd is because undrafted Kyle Orton has more Fantasy points than him. Now show me an undrafted running back that has more points than A. Peterson or C. Johnson. I don’t think so. With Ochocinco and D. Williams on Bye, it looks like BOBBY is going to have to sub in someone on his very thin bench. D. Brown, J. Ringer, and J. Jones are all deep in the shadows of their team’s super stars and also all projected at 1.
Chad's Prediction: Team Grande

4.) Team McCarthy (Matt McCarthy) (2-3) vs. Team Grays (Nick Grays) (1-4)

Line: Team Grays -33
Nick's Outlook: Once again, I have some great projections. Let's hope this week goes a little better, as last week saw two of my fantasy starters leave the game in the first quarter. They have both been ruled out for the season. Matt pulled out a win last week, but still has some injuries to deal with, most notable Knowshon Moreno (proj. of 2) who hasn't played in three weeks. Conversely, my running backs are ready to go off. Ray Rice (proj. of 15), Ryan Torain (proj. of 14) and Jamaal Charles (proj. of 17) SHOULD lead me to a win!
Nick's Prediction: Team Grays

Chad's Outlook:
Mr. League Commissioner sure wouldn’t be happy if he didn’t make the payoffs in his own league. At 1-4, he looks to crush Team McCarthy in week 6. Good news for Grays though, R. Rice finally woke up last week and is starting to look very good. He’s getting great productivity out of J. Charles and can’t complain about back up R. Torain for Washington. It looks like Grays will also be starting Freeman over a struggling Schaub this week. Both are projected at 12 and both match up against decent pass defenses (Schaub- New Orleans #10 and Freeman- Kansas City #11). For McCarthy, will T. Brady’s productivity be devastated by the loss of Moss? I also think P. Harvin’s projection of 5 is very shy. With Moss on the team, the doors are wide open for the 2nd year to produce yards and TDs, just like last week.
Chad's Prediction: Team Grays

5.) Team Lee (Isaac Lee) (4-1) vs. The Rippin and the Tearin (Rory Linton) (4-1)

Line: The Rippin and the Tearin -3
Nick's Outlook: Match-up of the week here. The winner of this game moves one game closer to locking up a playoff spot. I'm thinking seven wins and possibly six will earn a team a playoff spot at the end of the regular season. With the departure of Randy Moss (proj. of 12) who happens to be on Rory's team, I think Isaac's Wes Welker (proj. of 11) falls into a nice spot fantasy speaking. Give the little man the win this week because I think Rory's Peyton Hillis (proj. of 12) is a little more banged up than the Cleveland Browns are admitting.
Nick's Prediction: Team Lee (UPSET SPECIAL)

Chad's Outlook:
I was pretty excited to see Team Lee lose last week because it allowed me to pick up a quick 5$ pity pot and still maintain first place in the league. R. Williams for Team Lee is finally starting to show why Dallas payed so much for him out of Detroit last season. M. Bush did some work in last week’s first win over the Chargers in 7 years and Drew Brees rolled over for rookie Max Hall in his first NFL start. For Rippin, Randy Moss had his second best game of the season for his first start with Brett Favre at the Jets with less than a weeks practice together. Lets see what they can accomplish at home together against Dallas.
Chad's Prediction: The Rippin and the Tearin

6.) Team Breiby (Chad Breiby) (4-1) vs. Team Merrill (Seth Merrill) (2-3)

Line: Team Breiby -38
Nick's Outlook: No way Peyton Manning (proj. of 27) fails to reach double-digits two weeks in a row. His seven fantasy points last week made me realize the Chiefs defense is the real deal. Nice pick-up of Anthony Armstrong (proj. of 4) because he appears to have the tools to become a nice #2 for the Redskins opposite to Santana Moss. Team Merrill may have lucked into a win last week, but this week, he'll need more than Antonio Gates' (proj of 16) 17.4 points a game to pull the upset here. Who knows though, it is fantasy, two of Chad's players could fall into season-ending injuries in the first quarter of their respective games (I'm still a little bitter if you can't tell)!
Nick's Prediction: Team Breiby

Chad's Outlook:
It looks like Grays’ predictions of me losing the first five weeks in a row finally came true for the first time last week. Despite LeSean McCoy’s broken ribs and Foster’s 2 point performance last week, they are still ranked 1 and 2 for fantasy running backs in terms of points scored. ESPN doesn’t think they will slow down at all this week, projecting both at 18. Jay Cutler will return this week shooting against a 28th ranked Seattle pass defense. Peyton Manning (Proj. 27) will be trying to bounce back from a 7 point performance against a terrible Washington Secondary. Antonio Gates has almost 500 yards receiving and 7 touchdowns in 5 games and is Team Merrill’s scariest player. Team Breiby shouldn’t have a problem bouncing back from a Pity Pot win from last week.
Chad's Prediction: Team Breiby

7.) pity pot partyboy (Tim Harwood) (2-3) vs. Team Klitzman (Kari Klitzman) (1-4)

Line: Team Klitzman -35
Nick's Outlook: Alright, maybe I am jinxing Kari by picking her. Rory's fantasy team pulled the biggest come-back of the year (29 points down with a WR and D/ST to play on Monday Night). Superstition has to play in a loss like that, right? Nonetheless, after a breakout performance from pity pot partyboy last week, it's time for the team to go on a three-week hiatus, so I still like Team Klitzman. I love the receivers this week; Dwayne Bowe (proj. of 6), Hakeem Nicks (proj. of 16) and Kenny Britt (proj. of 13). Bowe and Britt play two of the softest pass defenses in the league in Houston and Jacksonville while Nicks flaunts his #1 fantasy-WR status against the Lions. Tim has way too many question-marks including the elbow of Brett Favre (proj. of 9) to pull out the win this week.
Nick's Prediction: Team Klitzman

Chad's Outlook:
How much does the League Manager’s baby’s momma hate B. Favre now? He happen to throw a late pick 6 in last week’s Monday night thriller to give the Jets defense 16 points and Linton a 1 point win. This week she’s coming back strong and Partyboy hopes to reclaim his pitty pot award from me. Actually, after Tim adjusts his line up, this could be a match. M. Forte and R. Wayne are clicking on all cylinders. B. Favre is showing life as of late 3rd quarter last week and H. Ward finally has Big Ben back. If Tim goes and picks up D. Carpenter for Miami kicker and the Bucs Defense instead of the Ravens(proj. at -3), he may have a decent chance to take this down. Kari might get some good productivity out of Flacco this week against the Patriots in what could be a shootout. Frank Gore had a terrible week 5, but still pounded out 9 points. 20 this week wouldn’t be asking too much.
Chad's Prediction: Team Klitzman

8.) Points Predictions:

Nick's Prediction: Lowest (pity pot partyboy) and Highest (Team Klitzman)

Chad's Prediction: Lowest (Wizard Killer) and Highest (
Team Breiby) (ya... I did just do that)
