Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

There are easy steps to cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool.  This week makes it a little more complicated because we’ve hit a point in the season where we’ve used 11 teams already but we’ve got 16 games this week so that helps.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 9-2 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) along with losing pick Falcons (week 6) and Texans (week 9 though we picked before the Watson injury).  Seven of those teams, the Eagles, Falcons, Patriots, Raiders, Rams, Seahawks and Vikings are predicted to win this week so they’re out our of group of 16 week 12 winners.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  For NFL week 12, eliminate the Chargers.  8 teams are remaining to be considered.

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 Panthers, Titans and Jaguars are out.  This cuts us down to 5 potential survivor pool picks.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Bengalss.  Four teams are left to consider for our week 11 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 Steelers who play the Packers (ranked 16th).  The list is down to 3.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3- Chiefs (against Bills) – The Chiefs were horrible last week.  I’m a Chiefs fan and was disgusted with that performance last week against the Giants. They won’t be a survivor pick this season.

2 – Redskins (against Giants) –  The Redskins should win.  What my concerns are with making this a pick is they play on Thursday night and against a divisional foe.  This game could be closer than expected.

1 – Ravens (against Texans) – The Ravens have played well over the past month.  The Texans with Tom Savage aren’t going to beat many NFL teams.   Take the Ravens to survive NFL week 12.

Free Picks NFL Week 11

There were several games in NFL week 11 I liked. I chose 4 as our premium plays but these below were very close to making the cut:

Each week I analyze games and pick out our best plays for the NFL week ahead. I go through every game and jot down selections before reviewing them again to finalize our best plays to pass along to SportsFormulator Insiders as our premium ATS picks for the week.

There were several games in NFL week 11 I liked. I chose 4 as our premium plays but these below were very close to making the cut:

Cardinals at Texans (Pick ‘Em, 38.5) – Do you trust either of these two QB’s? Both teams have solid defenses that should control the game. This game is going to be filled with field goals and turnovers. This should be very low scoring. 

Jaguars (-7.5, 37) at Browns – Another game with questionable QB play. I’m not sure the Browns can get to double figures in this game and I don’t trust Blake Bortles to light the scoreboard up. This should be an Under.

Bills at Chargers (-4, 43.5) – I was talking to a friend of mine in LA last night and asked him if the Chargers can win or lose by more than a FG any week the rest of the year. They’re a competitive team and seems like they’re always in a spot where the final drive of the game determines the outcome. What will the Bills get out of changing QB’s this week? That’s what kept this from being a play. The Chargers win by a FG so I’d take the Bills and the 4 points.

Titans at Steelers (-7, 44) – The Steelers struggled coming out of their bye week last week but rallied to win by 3 at Indy. I think with the lights on in primetime, the Steelers come to play and the Titans simply can’t keep up. I tend to stay away from Thursday Night Football but would be tempted to take the Steelers and lay 7.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

There are easy steps to cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool.  This week makes it a little more complicated because we’ve hit a point in the season where we’ve used 10 teams already.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 8-2 this season having taken the Bills (week 1), Raiders (week 2),  Packers (week 3), Seahawks (week 4), Eagles (week 5) and Vikings (week 7) along with losing pick Falcons (week 6) and Texans (week 9 though we picked before the Watson injury).  Six of those teams, the Eagles, Packers, Rams, Saints, Seahawks and Texans are predicted to win this week so they’re out our of group of 14 week 11 winners.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  For NFL week 11, we don’t have any toss-up games so we still have 8 teams 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, the Bengals, Bucs, Chiefs, Jaguars and Lions are out.  This cuts us down to 3 potential survivor pool picks.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Chargers.  Two teams are left to consider for our week 11 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 Steelers who play the Titans on Thursday Night Football.  The list is down to one.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidate

This week we weren’t left with options but the one we have is a great pick.  The Patriots against the Raiders in Mexico City happens Sunday afternoon.  The Raiders haven’t shown they should be trusted week to week.  They’re coming off a bye so maybe they’ve gotten it together.

We know the Patriots are rolling.  They’ll shred the Raiders defense. Take the Patriots to survive NFL Week 11.
