Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

There are four steps to easily cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool.


Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  Gone are the Chargers, Bengals, Lions and Cowboys.  Twelve teams remain.

Eliminate Road Winners

Next we eliminate road teams.  I don’t like taking road teams to win in the NFL at all.  Just too risky when you need a win, go with a home team.

Eliminating predicted road winners, the Patriots, Bills, Cardinals and Seahawks are no longer considered.  Eight teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The 23rd ranked Vikings are out of consideration in week 17.  Seven teams are left.

Eliminate Winners Playing Good Teams

Then, I look for our predicted winners that are playing teams ranked in the top 16 and take them out of consideration.  This eliminates the Redskins, Falcons and Broncos, leaving us with four candidates.

The Titans, Colts, Bucs and Steelers are our final four candidates as our NFL week 17 survivor pool pick.  We’ve used the Colts and Steelers already so they’re eliminated.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

Both teams are playing divisional games.  The difference in these games are the Bucs have their starting QB this week, while the Titans are riding with their backup after Marcus Mariota was injured.  Take the Bucs to survive NFL week 17.

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  We knock 16 teams out of consideration including Dolphins, Giants, Packers, Patriots, Chargers and Bengals.

Eliminate Road Winners

Next we eliminate road teams.  I don’t like taking road teams to win in the NFL at all.  Just too risky when you need a win, go with a home team.  All road winners were eliminated in the toss-up games.  Ten teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranked Teams

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Texans are the lowest ranked team remaining but fall at 20 so they’re in consideration still.

Eliminate Winners Playing Good Teams

Then, I look for our predicted winners that are playing teams ranked in the top 16 and take them out of consideration.  This eliminates the Cowboys, who play the 13th ranked Bucs.  Nine teams remain.

We’re 11-3 on the season ending our streak with a Colts loss last Sunday.  With nine teams left, five (Vikings, Bills, Chiefs, Texans, Cardinals) have been used this season.  Four teams are left to consider, the Seahawks, Ravens, Falcons and Redskins.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

4-  Seahawks – This should be a slam dunk for the Seahawks with the Rams firing a head coach this week.  It’s on Thursday night though and you never know what kind of play you’re going to get from a  team on Thursday.

3)  Redskins – The Panthers and Redskins are in desperation mode for the playoff.  They know a loss could end their hopes.  Don’t trust a team playing a desperate team.

2)  Ravens – The Ravens are better than the Eagles.  They’re coming off a short week though having played in New England on Monday night.

1) Falcons – The Falcons are going to blow the 49ers out.  Take the Atlanta Falcons to survive NFL week 15.

2 – Seahawks (against Panthers) – The Panthers come in with nothing to lose and Cam Newton’s crew has won in Seattle before.

1 – Patriots (against Rams) – The Patriots are at home which is as close to a lock as you can get in the NFL.  Plus they’re playing a team that struggles to score points that will be traveling a great distance.  Take the Patriots to survive NFL week 13.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 12 – 2016

We want you to survive your eliminator pool this NFL season so we’re giving our free survivor pool strategy all season. Our picks are based upon our data driven NFL predictions and power rankings.

Of the seven teams still eligible, we have used the Bills and Lions earlier this season so they’re out.  We have five potential NFL survivor pool picks in week 12, the Ravens, Falcons, Dolphins, Raiders and Eagles.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-12-2016

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

5 – Raiders (against Panthers) – The Raiders won Monday night in Mexico City.  The conditions of being at such elevation and in heavy pollution, can cause great fatigue.  It might impact the Raiders’ performance this Sunday as they’re trying to recover.

4 – Eagles (against Packers) – The Eagles are trying to stay in the playoff race while the Packers are crumbling.  Do the Packers rise up on Monday night to upset the Eagles? Never count Aaron Rodgers out.

3 – Falcons (against Cardinals) – The Cardinals have fallen this season.  They can’t protect Carson Palmer and that’s disrupted the offense mightily.  The Falcons will try to jump out to an early lead to let the pass rush attack.

2 – Ravens (against Bengals) – This is more of a play against the Bengals.  Without AJ Green, the offense doesn’t have much spark.  This is a divisional game which means it be close.

1 – Dolphins (against 49ers) – The Dolphins are hot having won five straight and welcome the lowly Niners to town this week.  Expect the ‘Phins to keep the momentum going.  Take the Dolphins to survive NFL week 12.

Eliminate Road Winners

Next we eliminate road teams.  I don’t like taking road teams to win in the NFL at all.  Just too risky when you need a win, go with a home team.

Eliminating predicted road winners, we knock out two strong candidates this week.  The second ranked Patriots are at the 31st ranked 49ers and the are at the 32nd ranked Browns.  Neither the Pats nor Steelers will be considered leaving us eight teams.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This knocks out the Panthers who are 27th in our NFL power rankings this week.

Eliminate Winners Playing Good Teams

Then, I look for our predicted winners that are playing teams ranked in the top 16 and take them out of consideration.  This eliminates the Vikings who are playing the 8th ranked Cardinals and the Cowboys who are playing the 11th ranked Ravens.  Five teams remain in consideration.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-11-2016

Final Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

4 – Redskins (against Packers) – The Redskins are up and down this season and I think the desperate Packers will play hard this Sunday.  This is a game that could go either way in my mind so it’s by far the fourth best selection of the four teams.

3 – Raiders (against Texans) – The young Raiders get a showcase game on Monday Night Football against a playoff team from last year.  Can the Texans put it together on the road?

2 – Giants (against Bears) – All that keeps the Giants from being the pick this week is they’re coming off a short week.  The Bears look like they’ve packed it in for the season and stories continue to come out of the lockerroom about Jay Culter having no faith from his teammates.

1 – Lions (against Jaguars) – Detroit comes off of a bye week against the lowly Jags.  The Jaguars play like the least skilled team in the league.  I look for the Lions to come out fast and keep the pedal on the gas.  Take the Lions to survive NFL week 11.

Eliminate Road Winners

Next we eliminate road teams.  I don’t like taking road teams to win in the NFL at all.  Just too risky when you need a win, go with a home team.

Eliminating predicted road winners, only the Cowboys are removed from consideration leaving us with seven teams to consider.

Eliminate Winners Playing Good Teams

Then, I look for our predicted winners that are playing teams ranked in the top 16 and take them out of consideration.  This eliminates the Eagles and Patriots.  Four teams are left.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

Of our four team remaining, we’ve used the Chargers already so they’re out.  We have three final candidates for our week 10 NFL Survivor Pool pick, the Ravens, Cardinals and Bengals.

week-10-nfl-survivor-pool-pick

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3) Ravens (at Browns) – The Browns are awful.  They have yet to win and haven’t been competitive much of the season losing by nearly 12 points a game on average.  This is a Thursday night game and the Ravens are on the road and make them this week’s least confident pick.

2) Giants (against Bengals) – When will the Bengals get it together?  They’ve been inconsistent all season.  The Giants  are looking like a potential playoff team.  My feeling is the Bengals make this game competitive and our other option this week is clearly better than this one.

1) Cardinals  (against 49ers) – The 49ers are terrible and on the road.  The Cardinals will cruise to a win in the desert.  Take the Arizona Cardinals to survive NFL week 10.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.

Eliminate Winners Playing Good Teams

Then, I look for our predicted winners that are playing teams ranked in the top 16 and take them out of consideration.  This eliminates the Falcons against the 9th ranked Packers and Bills versus the top ranked Patriots.  This leaves us with only one team this week.
