Fair Warning:

I have the two SIMS teams picked 6 in each division because they are SIMS teams. I can not pick them above humans based on principle. Plus, they should both finish last in each division given the quality of human coaches we have. But beware of DeSales! With 6 SRs they are going to get their fair share of usets this season.

Hard to disagree with any of the picks
