NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 14 – 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.

The Patriots won last week as our survivor pool pick improving our record to 11-2 on the 2016 NFL season!


Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 16 predicted winners:
Chiefs over Raiders
Titans over Broncos
Panthers over Chargers
Colts over Texans
Bengals over Browns
Bills over Steelers
Dolphins over Cardinals
Lions over Bears
Vikings over Jaguars
Bucs over Saints
Eagles over Redskins
49ers over Jets
Seahawks over Packers
Falcons over Rams
Cowboys over Giants
Patriots over Ravens

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 Titans, Panthers, Dolphins and Seahawks are eliminated leaving us with 12 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 Cowboys, Vikings, Bengals and Falcons are not considered.  Eight teams are remaining.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This knocks out the Eagles (21) and 49ers (31).  Six 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 Chiefs (against Raiders), Bills (against Steelers) and Patriots (against Ravens).  Three teams are left to consider.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016
