NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 17 – 2017

NFL Survivor Pool Picks for week 17 of the 2017 season.  We survived last week with the Carolina Panthers.

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.

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

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 14-2 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), Panthers (week 16) 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 among our four week 17 NFL Survivor candidates.

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 Redskins and Chiefs are predicted road winners so they’re out of contention for our NFL Survivor Pool Pick for week 17.  Two teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Colts.  Only one team is left to consider for our week 17 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 keeps the Steelers as our pick.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

The Steelers play AFC North divisional foe Cleveland.  Will Pittsburgh be the one win on the Browns schedule this season or will the Steelers finish the regular season with a W?  Take the Steelers to survive NFL Week 17.

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).

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.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

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

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 11-2 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) along with losing pick Falcons (week 6) and Texans (week 9 though we picked before the Watson injury).

Only 8 of those teams, the Bills, Jaguars, Packers, Patriots, Rams, Saints, Texans and Vikings are predicted to win this week so they’re out our of group of 16 week 14 winners.  Our list begins with 8 potential NFL survivor pool picks.

Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  The aren’t any 1 point predictions this week so we’re still at 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, the four teams, Cowboys, Jets, Lions and Titans are out of consideration giving us 4 teams left.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  There aren’t any predicted winners left this week that aren’t in our top 20.  4 teams are left to consider for our week 14 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 Ravens.  The list is down to three.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3 – Chiefs (against Raiders)I’m a Chiefs fan and don’t expect them to win a game the rest of the season.  They’ve become so erratic and can’t put a total team effort together.  Don’t count on them if you want to survive.

2 – Bengals (against Bears)The Bengals come off a physical game on Monday night.  So with the short week and potential injuries or reduced physical capacity, they’re the second best pick this week.

1 – Chargers (against Redskins)  The Chargers are playing well and now sit atop the AFC West tied with the Chiefs and Raiders.  Being at home, they know this is their chance to set up a potential division championship game in Kansas City next week.  I’ll take Phillip Rivers and the Chargers to win.  Take the Chargers to survive NFL Week 14.

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 12 teams already.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 10-2 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) along with losing pick Falcons (week 6) and Texans (week 9 though we picked before the Watson injury).

Eight of those teams, the Eagles, Packers, Patriots, Raiders, Rams, Ravens, Saints and Vikings are predicted to win this week so they’re out our of group of 16 week 13 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 13, the Broncos and Titans are predicted 1 point winners so they’re out.  Six 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 Chiefs and Steelers are out.  This cuts us down to four potential survivor pool picks for week 13.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This eliminates the Chargers.  Three teams are left to consider for our week 13 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 eliminate any of our three remaining teams, Chargers, Jaguars and Cowboys.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3 – Cowboys – Things are not going well in Dallas.  They go from a Thanksgiving debacle to hosting the rival Redskins this Thursday.  I wouldn’t be shocked if Kirk Cousins comes in and puts a L on the Cowboys in Big D.

2- Jaguars – The Jags are coming off a loss but returning home they should be ready to go against the lowly Colts.  I think the defense will be ready to go and keep the Colts in single digits.  With this being a divisional game, familiarity can make games closer than expected so the Jags won’t be my top choice for NFL survivor pool pick this week.

1 – Chargers – Phillip Rivers and company are coming off of an impressive win on Thanksgiving.  While they don’t have much of a home field advantage in LA, they won’t need it against the Browns.  The pass rush from the Chargers will overwhelm DeShone Kizer.  This is a double digit win for Los Angeles.

Take the Chargers to survive NFL Week 13.

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.

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.

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 Cardinals who play the Seahawks on Thursday night.  The list is down to four.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

4 – Titans – The Bengals come to Tennessee off of a dreadful performance in Jacksonville.  Look for them to respond with a good effort on Sunday.

3- Lions – This is a potential letdown game for the Lions.  They come off a road win in Green Bay on Monday night to host the winless Browns who come off of a bye.

2 – Panthers – Panthers come off of a big divisional win over the Falcons last Sunday.  Playing on Monday night should prevent a letdown but this one could be closer than expected.

1 – Rams – Has there been a more impressive team than the Rams this season?  You don’t see blowouts very often in the NFL but the Rams have three this year already.  This shapes up to be another as the Texans limp to LA.  Take the Rams to survive NFL Week 10.

1 – Texans – The Texans host the lowly Colts.  The Colts have been competitive at times this season but they’re struggling to put W’s in the win column.  The Texans have become one of the best teams in the league to watch as Deshaun Watson has ignited their offense.  It’s hard to see the Colts offense being able to keep up.  Take the Texans to survive NFL Week 9.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2017

We’re 6-1 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).  Five of those teams are predicted to win this week so our list is cut to 8 potential NFL Survivor Pool Picks for week 8 already.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

 

3 – Patriots – I’m not ready to trust this New England team.  They’ve been playing better but the competition hasn’t been great.  The Chargers have won three straight and will travel cross country for this one.  Look for Phillip Rivers to find a way to hang in this one.

2 – Chiefs (against Broncos) – Arrowhead will be rocking on Monday night with the rival Broncos in town.  This is a divisional game and with teams being so familiar with one another it gives you pause.  The Chiefs have lost two in a row so they’ll be ready for this game.  The Broncos were shutout last week by the Chargers.  Look for the Broncos to show up this week but the Chiefs win a close one.

1 – Saints (against Bears) – The Saints offense is rolling.  In the Dome, Drew Brees and company are hard to stop.  The Bears have been winning with Mitchell Trubisky yet he isn’t completing passes.  He’s not completed more than 4 in a game the past two weeks.  No way that continues and they beat the Saints.  Take the Saints to Survive NFL Week 8.
