We have family visiting and a lot of real-world things to get done, so couple that with a long list of divisional matches and we have this kind of preview -- a quick-hit list (although we put a little more effort than just "listing out the division opponents" this time):
We start in the AFC West where the entire division is seeing action. Division leader Mary L is on a four-match winning streak, while second-ranked Secretly Victorious has dropped three-straight. If anyone is going to stop Mary L from running away, with this division, Secretly Victorious needs to turn things around now.
The bottom half of the division face off, where both Why Not Zoidberg? and Lyle Alzado are coming off of nice wins. Keeping the streak going here will definitely be helpful moving into the second half of the season.
Two of the AFC South rookies take on one another, as Cutler's Revenge and Fishlady knock heads. Both had great starts, but matching two-match losing streaks have put a damper on things. Still, they're both well ahead of the bottom two in the division, so the winner here will have a solid chance to end up with the title.
The AFC East is home to the league's current top-ranked player, Vlad M He dropped the season opener, and hasn't seen a loss in the five weeks since. It'll take quite the effort for the league's bottom-ranked player, Ethan C, to muster a turnaround here.
The AFC North saw Brenda's Bulldogs slip out of the top spot with a loss last week. She'll definitely be looking to bounce back here by trying to get her third win in a row over I Will Win It All. Ranked towards the bottom of the league thus season, I Will Win It All needs to live up to his name this week.
The NFC East-leading Turf Toe is looking for some payback in the first divisional rematch of the season. Waaaay back in Week 1, it was Jeff B who came out on top in their first season meeting. Now Turf Toe is atop the division, and looking to keep himself there.
The top two in the NFW West see action in a contest to determine who has the top spot going forward. Evil Squad of Evil holds a one-match lead right now, but a win by Shucky Duckies would mean he would come out of the weekend with the division in hand.
All right, that's that. The Week 7 pick submission page is all set for your Thursday pick (due in by noon on Thursday), and your weekend picks (in by 5:00pm eastern on Saturday). Have a great week everyone!
