We'll start out in the AFC North where Brenda's Bulldogs has already equaled her win total for all of 2019, stomping her way to a league-best 6-0 record. She's on a bye this week, which will give I Will Win It All and JPP's Missing Fingers a chance to put in some catch-up work against her. JPP, in his first divisional match of the season, has the easier road to make an attempt to take over the division lead. If he puts in a win here, he'll be a match and a half behind the lead and would be better-set to try and claim the top spot when he starts going head-to-head against Brenda's Bulldogs late this year. And while we're still a long way from anyone being statistically eliminated, I Will Win It All will need to back up last week's win with several more if he wants to remain in contention. There are some divisions were two wins still has you in the thick of things -- but the AFC North isn't one of them.
After washing off the stink of being the league's sole winless player with a victory in his last match, Buttfumbler is going to be looking to start stringing the wins together in the AFC East. To do so, he's going to need to do something he's never done before: Beat Deesato. Granted, this is his sophomore season, so getting swept once isn't a huge data point, but if Buttfumbler can get his first divisional win on the season here, it could give him a pretty nice platform to make a move in the coming weeks. For his part, Deesato is looking to draw even in the W/L column with the division-leading Vlad M by getting a victory here. Vlad M already beat Deesato this season, so Deesato is going to have to make the most of every divisional match.
All right, that's it for the divisionalsThis week has the most byes of the entire season, with six players sitting on the sidelines -- Mike C, Bad Mice, Black And Blues Brothers, Lyle Alzado, Delta Dawgs, and Brenda's Bulldogs all get have their picks only count toward the season pick total this week.
So get your pick submitted for Thursday's game (or all of them, if you like), and enjoy the week!
