NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 11 – 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.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 14 predicted winners:
Panthers over Saints
Colts over titans
Lions over Jaguars
Chiefs over Bucks
Giants over Bears
Vikings over Cardinals
Bills over Bengals
Cowboys over Ravens
Steelers over Browns
Rams over Dolphins
Patriots over 49ers
Seahawks over Eagles
Redskins over Packers
Raiders over Texans

Now 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.  The Colts, Bills, Rams and Seahawks are out of consideration this week.  We have 10 teams left to consider.

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.

Week 5 – Steelers (Win)
Week 6 – Bills (Win)
Week 7 – Chiefs (Win)
Week 8 – Broncos (Win)
Week 9 – Vikings (Loss)
Week 10 – Cardinals (Win)

Of the five teams left in consideration, only the Chiefs have been previously picked.  We have the Redskins, Raiders, Lions and Giants to make our week 11 NFL survivor pool pick.

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.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 10 – 2016

Fell to 7-2 last week as the Vikings lost in OT to the Lions.  They were the only team to make it through our survivor pool pick strategy.  In week 10, we have options!

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 14 predicted winners:

Ravens over Browns

Panthers over Chiefs

Eagles over Falcons
Redskins over Vikings
Titans over Packers

Now 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 Jaguars, Panthers, Broncos, Jets, Redskins and Titans.  We have 8 teams remaining.

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 Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  Gone are the Bucs.  Six team remain under consideration for this week’s NFL Survivor pool pick.

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.

Now 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.  The Ravens, Rams, Broncos and Seahawks are out.  We have nine teams remaining.

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 Falcons, Eagles, Cowboys and Saints are out.  We have five teams left to consider for our week 9 survivor pool pick.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Dolphins (22) and Chargers (21) are out of consideration.  Three teams remain.

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.  None of the three teams left fit this so we still have three teams to consider.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

We’ve previously picked the Chiefs and Packers so that leaves us with one team remaining as our week 9 NFL Survivor Pool pick.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

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

This wipes out over half of our candidates this week.  The Redskins, Texans, Seahawks, Browns, Raiders, Colts and Cowboys are out of consideration.  We have only six teams remaining.

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 Cardinals and Vikings are no longer considered.  Four teams are left in consideration.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Titans are predicted winners this week but are ranked 22nd so they’re eliminated.  Three teams remain.

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.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

None of the teams we’ve previously selected are still in consideration.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidate

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  The Giants (vs. Rams) and Jaguars (vs. Raiders) are predicted one point games so they’re out.  13 teams left to consider for NFL week 7.

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, Bills (at Dolphins), Ravens (at Jets) and Patriots (at Steelers).  We’re down to 10 teams to consider as survivor picks for NFL week 7.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  Bengals (28th) and 49ers (30th) are no longer being considered.

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 (vs. Vikings), Cardinals (vs. Seahawks), Broncos (vs. Texans) and Lions (vs. Redskins).

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

All of our previous picks except the Packers have been eliminated.  With the Packers out of consideration, we’re left with three teams, Chiefs, Titans and Falcons.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

survivor-pool-pick-week-7-2016

3 – Titans – The Titans have been a good home team but are clearly the worst option of these three.  This is a divisional game so it makes a little more risky.

2 – Falcons – The risk with this game is a let down for the Falcons.  They’re coming off back-to-back road games in Denver and Seattle.  They’re coming home against a Chargers team that could put some points up.  The Falcons are a fairly safe pick but not the best pick this week.

1 – Chiefs Kansas City is coming off an impressive win in Oakland.  They return home against a Saints team that tends to struggle on the road. We’ve got the Chiefs 5 point predicted winners on Sunday compared to the Falcons being predicted 4 point winners.  Take the Chiefs to survive NFL week 7.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  The Broncos, Giants, Bears, Packers and Texans are out of consideration for this week.

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 Steelers and Eagles are out.  We have eight teams left to consider.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

None of the teams we’ve used this season are still eligible in our survivor pool advice.  We have six candidates to consider.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-6

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

6 – Lions (against Rams) – Detroit gave Philly their first loss of the season last weekend.  Are they good though?  They’re not worth trusting with a survivor pool pick right now.

5 – Raiders (against Chiefs) – This is a divisional rivalry game so it’s hard to make your pick from a game like this.  These two play good games and this should be decided late in the 4th quarter.

4 – Titans (against Brown) – It’s easy to go against the Browns on the road.  I think Cleveland is going to be very competitive in this game though.  They took Miami to OT on the road and this could be a similar game that gets decided late.

3 – Cardinals (against Jets) – This is a Monday night game so both teams should show up.  It’s hard to see the Jets winning this on the road with their turnover problems.  The Cardinals haven’t proven to be too trust worthy this season either.

2 – Patriots (against Bengals) – This would be the pick but the Bengals should be desperate this week which makes this pick #2.  I don’t think Tom Brady will lose his home opener but this game could be closer than expected.

1 – Bills (against 49ers) – The 49ers are a mess right now and are starting Colin Kaepernick this week.  Can he right the ship?  The Niners are more than one player away from being a good team.  The Bills are playing well and should keep it going at home on Sunday.  Take the Bills to survive NFL week 6.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 5 – 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.

We’re 3-1 on the season after losing last week’s pick, the San Diego Chargers.  The Chargers collapsed in the second half and lost at home 35-34.  After leading 24-14 at half, they choked away the lead in the second half and had the most horrendous drive of the NFL season to end the game.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 14 predicted winners for NFL Week 5:

Cardinals (at 49ers)
Vikings (against Texans)
Dolphins (against Titans)
Patriots (at Browns)
Steelers (against Jets)
Ravens (against Redskins)
Eagles (at Lions)
Colts (against Bears)
Broncos (against Falcons)
Bills (at Rams)
Raiders (against Chargers)
Cowboys (against Bengals)
Packers (against Giants)
Panthers (against Bucs)

The Chiefs, Jaguars, Seahawks and Saints are on bye weeks.

Now there are six steps to easily cut down your potential pick for your week 5 NFL survivor pool.

1 – Toss Out Teams Already Picked

Week 1 – Texans (Winner)
Week 2 – Panthers (Winner)
Week 3 – Packers (Winner)
Week 4 – Chargers (Loser)

After eliminating previously used picks, we cut down from 14 to 12.

2 – Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  This cuts out the  Cardinals and Raiders.  We have 10 teams remaining.

3 – 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, Eagles and Bills are no longer considered.  We have seven teams left.

4 – Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This knocks the 24th ranked Colts and 26th ranked Dolphins out of consideration.  Leaving us with five teams.

5 – 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 against the 15th ranked Bengals, Broncos against 4th ranked Falcons and Vikings against the 11th ranked Texans.  That leaves us with two potential survivor pool picks for week 5.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-5

 6 – Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

After using our survivor pool pick strategy, we’re left with only two teams this week, the Steelers and Ravens.  This makes the decision fairly easy.

The Steelers are going against a turnover prone Jets team so we choose them over the Ravens.  Take the Steelers to survive NFL week 5.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 4 – 2016

SFpageheader

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.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 15 predicted NFL week 4 winners (Eagles and Packers are on a bye week):

Bengals (against Dolphins)
Jaguars (against Colts)
Redskins (against Browns)
Patriots (against Bills)
Jets (against Seahawks)
Panthers (at Falcons)
Bears (against Lions)
Texans (against Titans)
Ravens (against Raiders)
Broncos (at Bucs)
49ers (against Cowboys)
Chargers (against Saints)
Cardinals (against Rams)
Steelers (against Chiefs)
Vikings (against Giants)

Now there are five steps to easily cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool.

1 – 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 Jets, Ravens and 49ers.  We’ve got 12 teams left in consideration.

2 – 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 Super Bowl 50 teams are out.  With the Broncos and Panthers no longer being considered, we have 10 teams remaining.

3 – Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Bears (32), Jaguars (31) and Redskins (27) are predicted to win in week 4 but aren’t good enough to risk surviving the week with right now.  We have seven teams left to consider.

4 – 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 against the 13th ranked Giants and the Steelers against the 5th ranked Chiefs.  We have five teams to consider for survival.

5 – Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

We’ve picked the Texans, Panthers and Packers in previous weeks (3-0).  The Panthers have already been eliminated from consideration and the Packers are off this week.  We knock the Texans from contention and are down to four potential picks to survive NFL week 4.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-4-2016

Final  Week 4 NFL Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

4 – Bengals (against Dolphins) – The Bengals are at home on Thursday night.  I don’t trust the Thursday night games as teams tend to stray from their typical performances on that night.

3 – Patriots (against Bills) – After last week’s performance it’s hard to see the Patriots ever losing.  If they can trot a third string QB out and shutout a playoff team 27-0, they’re pretty safe.  However they’re playing a divisional foe and that makes this game a little more dangerous.

2 – Cardinals (against Rams) – The Cardinals are a strong home performer.  The Rams seem to figured out some offensive problems last week but can they hang with a high powered offense like the Cardinals?  The Cardinals should win convincingly.

1 – Chargers (against Saints) – The Chargers are good at home and the Saints struggle on the road.  Take Phillip Rivers to get the W and survive and advance to NFL week 5.  The Chargers are your NFL Week 4 Survivor Pool Pick.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 3 – 2016

SFpageheader

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.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy – Week 3 of 2016:

We start with our list of 16 predicted winners:

Patriots (vs. Texans)
Bengals (vs. Broncos)
Raiders (at Titans)
Cardinals (at Bills)
Jaguars (vs. Ravens)
Dolphins (vs. Browns)
Giants (vs. Redskins)
Packers (vs. Lions)
Panthers (vs. Vikings)
Seahawks (vs. 49ers)
Bucs (vs. Rams)
Steelers (at Eagles)
Chiefs (vs. Jets)
Colts (vs. Chargers)
Cowboys (vs. Bears)
Saints (vs. Falcons)

Now there are five 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.  Five teams are predicted  to win “toss-up games” in week 3.

Eliminated are the Patriots, Raiders, Cardinals, Cowboys and Saints.  We’re down to 11 potential picks.

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 of our road winners in week 3 have already been eliminated so we’re still at 11 teams left.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.   This eliminates four teams, the Dolphins (24), Colts (26) , Bucs (29) and Jaguars (31).  We have seven teams remaining.

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 Bengals, Chiefs and Steelers.  We have four team left to make our survivor pool pick for this week, Seahawks, Panthers, Packers and Giants.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

We’ve picked the Panthers and Texans already this season so neither is considered for this week.  The Texans are projected to lose at Patriots on Thursday night anyway.

And then there were three…Seahawks, Packers and Giants.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-3-2016

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3 – Seahawks – Their offense is struggling mightily and even being at home, I’d be cautious with this pick.  The 49ers put up points on the road last week at a good Panthers team.  Seattle will need to score this week to win.

2 – Giants – The Giants host the Redskins and we predict a 3 point win.  This is a divisional game where the Redskins should show up and give extra effort not trying to start 0-3.

1 – Packers – The Packers come off a disappointing loss at Minnesota on Sunday night.  They’ll be at home hosting a Lions team that they have superior talent to this week.  Take the Packers to survive to week 4.

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  In week 2, this eliminates several teams.  Gone are the Bills, Chiefs, Ravens, Steelers and Raiders.  We’re down to 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 at this stage just eliminates one team in week 2, the Seahawks.  Ten potential eliminator picks remain.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This elimates the Redskins (21), Bears (24) and Chargers (28) and leaves us with seven teams remaining.

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 Giants, Cardinals and Vikings.  We’re down to our final four.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

Survivor Pool Pick for NFL Week 2:

4 –  Lions (vs. Titans) – The Titans struggled last week while the Lions surprised.  We’ve still got the Lions ranked 17 in this week’s power rankings so they’re out of the running compared with the other three strong candidates.

3 – Patriots (vs. Dolphins)The Patriots won on the road against the second best team in the NFC from last season…without Brady or Gronk.  You simply can’t doubt what the hoodie is capable of doing as head coach.  This is a divisional game though so it could be closer than expected.

2 – Broncos (vs. Colts) –  The Colts might want to just let Andrew Luck stay in Indy.  I don’t see the Colts having any shot against the Denver pass rush.  Luck is gonna get knocked around.

1 – Panthers (vs. 49ers) –  The Panthers should be very motivated and this could be a blowout.  They’ve waited 10 days to get back on the field after losing to the Broncos by a point in the opener.  The Niners travel across the country on a short week.  Take the Panthers and survive to week 3.
