NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 4 – 2017

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:

There are easy steps to cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool.  We take you through step-by-step to make the week 4 NFL Survivor Pool pick.




Eliminate Teams We’ve Already Taken this Season

We’re 3-0 this season having taken the Bills (week 1), Raiders (week 2) and Packers (week 3).  The Raiders and Bills we predict to lose in week 4 so wouldn’t be considered this week.  The Packers are projected to win Thursday night but since we’ve used this this season, they’re out and leave us with 15 teams for week 4.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  The Dolphins, Jets and Bucs are out.  We have 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 Bengals (at Browns) are eliminated.  11 teams are remaining for our NFL week 4 survivor pool pick.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Arizona Cardinals (22nd) are out of consideration.

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 Texans (vs. Titans), Vikings (vs. Lions), Ravens (vs. Steelers), Falcons (vs. Bills), Chargers (vs. Eagles), Broncos (vs. Raiders) and Chiefs (vs. Redskins).  Having knocked out seven teams, we only have 3 remaining.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3 – Cowboys – Coming off a short week, the Cowboys host a Rams team coming off a win on Thursday night.  This game could be more competitive due to the team he team has to prepare so they’re the least confident of our final picks.

2 – Patriots (against Panthers) – The Pats defense continues to struggle.  The Panthers though showed they were vulnerable as the Saints shredded them at home last Sunday.  Tom Brady keeps it going for the Pats this week.

1 – Seahawks (against Colts) – The Seahawks are coming off a loss on the road while they host the Colts coming off a win.  The Seahawks know a drop to 1-3 make it another season of obstacles.  I look for this to be a blowout.   Take the Seahawks to survive NFL week 4.

NFL Survivor Pool Pick – Week 1 2017

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:

There are four steps to easily cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool.  We have 16 NFL week 1 winners to cut down from so let’s start picking a survivor.




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 Lions (against Cardinals), Titans (against Raiders), Dolphins (against Bucs) and  Panthers (at 49ers).  12 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, three of our 12 remaining teams are out. The Falcons (at Bears), Steelers (at Browns) and Colts (at Rams) are no longer being considered for a survivor pick.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Texans (24th) and Bengals (23rd) cut our list down to seven teams.

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 Patriots (against Chiefs), Redskins (against Eagles) Packers (against Seahawks) and Cowboys (against Giants) .

We’re down to three teams for our NFL week 1 survivor pool pick.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3 – Denver Broncos (against Chargers) – A game with two new head coaches make this the least confident pick of the three.

2 – Minnesota Vikings (against New Orleans Saints) – The Vikings open up a new stadium while welcoming back Adrian Peterson who know joins Drew Brees in the backfield for the Saints.

1 – Buffalo Bills (against New York Jets) – While the Bills are breaking in a new head coach, the Jets are a team lacking playmakers.  The Jets should be a mess in week 1 so take the Bills at home to survive NFL week 1.

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.  This knocks out the Seahawks and Texans.  We have 14 teams remaining to consider in 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, the Steelers, Patriots, Titans and Giants are out of contention.  We have 10 teams left.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Saints, ranked 23rd, from contention.  Nine 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 Broncos against the sixth ranked Chiefs and Cowboys against the 10th ranked Redskins are out.  Seven teams remain.

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.

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.

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.

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.
