Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

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

Usually at this point in the season, there isn’t much to pick from for a survivor pool.  This week, seven of our 16 predicted winners are eligible including Redskins, Bears, Steelers, Panthers, Cowboys, Chiefs and Cardinals.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 13-2 this season having taken the Bills (week 1), Raiders (week 2), Packers (week 3), Seahawks (week 4), Eagles (week 5) and Vikings (week 7), Saints (week 8), Rams (week 10), Patriots (week 11), Ravens (week 12), Jaguars (13), Chargers (week 14), Lions (week 15)  along with losing picks Falcons (week 6) and Texans (week 9 though we picked before the Watson injury).

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  We don’t have any toss-up winners.

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 are predicted road winners so they’re out of contention for our NFL Survivor Pool Pick for week 16.  Six teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Redskins, Bears and Cardinals.  Three teams are left to consider for our week 16 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 Cowboys who play the Seahawks.  The list is down to two.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

Two teams, the Chiefs and Panthers are our final candidates for week 16 NFL survivor pool pick.

2 – Chiefs – The Dolphins visit Kansas City.  The Chiefs have seemed to right the ship after cratering to .500 after a 5-0 start.  I trust the Chiefs less than the Panthers

1 – Panthers – Carolina faces Tampa Bay in a NFC South match-up.  I usually tend to stay away from divisional match-ups with survivor pool picks.  The Panthers have a playoff spot still at stake.  The Bucs come off a short week. Take the Panthers to survive NFL Week 16.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

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

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 12-2 this season having taken the Bills (week 1), Raiders (week 2), Packers (week 3), Seahawks (week 4), Eagles (week 5) and Vikings (week 7), Saints (week 8), Rams (week 10), Patriots (week 11), Ravens (week 12), Jaguars (13), Chargers (week 14) along with losing pick Falcons (week 6) and Texans (week 9 though we picked before the Watson injury).

We have 16 winners for week 15 and have already picked 10 of them (Bills, Chargers, Eagles, Falcons, Jaguars, Patriots, Rams, Ravens, Saints and Vikings) so we start with six possibilities for our week 15 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.  The Broncos are our only 1 point predictions this week so we’re still at 11 teams remaining.  Five 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 Titans and Cowboys are out of consideration giving us three teams left, Lions, Panthers and Redskins.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Washington Redskins who are 25th in this week’s power rankings.  Only two teams remain eligible for our week 15 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 doesn’t apply to the Detroit Lions or Carolina Panthers.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

This is a very tough decisions this week.

2 – Panthers – Could this be a let down for Carolina?  They got a big win last week over the Vikings.  The Packers get Aaron Rodgers back so they could be fired up.  I still like Carolina to win but it’s more of a questions than the Lions.

1 – Lions –  The Lions play the Bears in week 15.  Being a divisional match-up and with the Bears offense improving.  This is a must win for the Lions in the playoff hunt. Take the Lions to survive NFL Week 15.
