Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

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 Chargers, Bengals, Lions and Cowboys.  Twelve 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 Patriots, Bills, Cardinals and Seahawks are no longer considered.  Eight teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The 23rd ranked Vikings are out of consideration in week 17.  Seven 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 Redskins, Falcons and Broncos, leaving us with four candidates.

Week 12 – Dolphins (Win)
Week 13 – Patriots (Win)
Week 14 – Colts (Loss)
Week 15 – Falcons (Win)
Week 16 – Seahawks (Loss)

The Titans, Colts, Bucs and Steelers are our final four candidates as our NFL week 17 survivor pool pick.  We’ve used the Colts and Steelers already so they’re eliminated.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

Both teams are playing divisional games.  The difference in these games are the Bucs have their starting QB this week, while the Titans are riding with their backup after Marcus Mariota was injured.  Take the Bucs to survive NFL week 17.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

 

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.  We knock 16 teams out of consideration including Dolphins, Giants, Packers, Patriots, Chargers and Bengals.

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.  All road winners were eliminated in the toss-up games.  Ten teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranked Teams

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Texans are the lowest ranked team remaining but fall at 20 so they’re in consideration still.

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 13th ranked Bucs.  Nine teams remain.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

We’re 11-3 on the season ending our streak with a Colts loss last Sunday.  With nine teams left, five (Vikings, Bills, Chiefs, Texans, Cardinals) have been used this season.  Four teams are left to consider, the Seahawks, Ravens, Falcons and Redskins.

2016 Survivor Pick Results
Week 1 – Texans (Win)
Week 2 – Panthers (Win)
Week 3 – Packers (Win)
Week 4 – Chargers (Loss)
Week 5 – Steelers (Win)
Week 6 – Bills (Win)
Week 7 – Chiefs (Win)
Week 8 – Broncos (Win)
Week 9 – Vikings (Loss)
Week 10 – Cardinals (Win)
Week 11 – Lions (Win)
Week 12 – Dolphins (Win)
Week 13 – Patriots (Win)
Week 14 – Colts (Loss)

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

4-  Seahawks – This should be a slam dunk for the Seahawks with the Rams firing a head coach this week.  It’s on Thursday night though and you never know what kind of play you’re going to get from a  team on Thursday.

3)  Redskins – The Panthers and Redskins are in desperation mode for the playoff.  They know a loss could end their hopes.  Don’t trust a team playing a desperate team.

2)  Ravens – The Ravens are better than the Eagles.  They’re coming off a short week though having played in New England on Monday night.

1) Falcons – The Falcons are going to blow the 49ers out.  Take the Atlanta Falcons to survive NFL week 15.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 9 – 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.

We’re 7-1 surviving on the season.  Our only loss was a 1 point loss where the Chargers blew a lead to the Saints in week 4.

2016 Survivor Pick Results
Week 1 – Texans (Win)
Week 2 – Panthers (Win)
Week 3 – Packers (Win)
Week 4 – Chargers (Loss)
Week 5 – Steelers (Win)
Week 6 – Bills (Win)
Week 7 – Chiefs (Win)
Week 8 – Broncos (Win)

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 13 predicted winners:
Falcons (at Bucs)
Chiefs (vs. Jaguars)
Vikings (vs. Lions)
Eagles (at Giants)
Cowboys (at Browns)
Dolphins (vs. Jets)
Ravens (vs. Steelers)
Saints (at 49ers)
Rams (vs. Panthers)
Packers (vs. Colts)
Chargers (vs. Titans)
Broncos (at Raiders)
Seahawks (vs. Bills)

The Redskins, Bengals, Cardinals, Bears, Texans and Patriots are off this week.

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 Ravens, Rams, Broncos and Seahawks are out.  We have nine 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 Falcons, Eagles, Cowboys and Saints are out.  We have five teams left to consider for our week 9 survivor pool pick.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Dolphins (22) and Chargers (21) are out of consideration.  Three 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.  None of the three teams left fit this so we still have three teams to consider.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

We’ve previously picked the Chiefs and Packers so that leaves us with one team remaining as our week 9 NFL Survivor Pool pick.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

The Minnesota Vikings met all of our criteria for the NFL Survivor Pool pick in week 9.  Take the Vikings to survive this week!

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 Giants (vs. Rams) and Jaguars (vs. Raiders) are predicted one point games so they’re out.  13 teams left to consider for NFL week 7.

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, Bills (at Dolphins), Ravens (at Jets) and Patriots (at Steelers).  We’re down to 10 teams to consider as survivor picks for NFL week 7.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  Bengals (28th) and 49ers (30th) are no longer being considered.

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 (vs. Vikings), Cardinals (vs. Seahawks), Broncos (vs. Texans) and Lions (vs. Redskins).

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

All of our previous picks except the Packers have been eliminated.  With the Packers out of consideration, we’re left with three teams, Chiefs, Titans and Falcons.

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

survivor-pool-pick-week-7-2016

3 – Titans – The Titans have been a good home team but are clearly the worst option of these three.  This is a divisional game so it makes a little more risky.

2 – Falcons – The risk with this game is a let down for the Falcons.  They’re coming off back-to-back road games in Denver and Seattle.  They’re coming home against a Chargers team that could put some points up.  The Falcons are a fairly safe pick but not the best pick this week.

1 – Chiefs Kansas City is coming off an impressive win in Oakland.  They return home against a Saints team that tends to struggle on the road. We’ve got the Chiefs 5 point predicted winners on Sunday compared to the Falcons being predicted 4 point winners.  Take the Chiefs to survive NFL week 7.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 5 – 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.

We’re 3-1 on the season after losing last week’s pick, the San Diego Chargers.  The Chargers collapsed in the second half and lost at home 35-34.  After leading 24-14 at half, they choked away the lead in the second half and had the most horrendous drive of the NFL season to end the game.

Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:

We start with our list of 14 predicted winners for NFL Week 5:

Cardinals (at 49ers)
Vikings (against Texans)
Dolphins (against Titans)
Patriots (at Browns)
Steelers (against Jets)
Ravens (against Redskins)
Eagles (at Lions)
Colts (against Bears)
Broncos (against Falcons)
Bills (at Rams)
Raiders (against Chargers)
Cowboys (against Bengals)
Packers (against Giants)
Panthers (against Bucs)

The Chiefs, Jaguars, Seahawks and Saints are on bye weeks.

Now there are six steps to easily cut down your potential pick for your week 5 NFL survivor pool.

1 – Toss Out Teams Already Picked

Week 1 – Texans (Winner)
Week 2 – Panthers (Winner)
Week 3 – Packers (Winner)
Week 4 – Chargers (Loser)

After eliminating previously used picks, we cut down from 14 to 12.

2 – Eliminate Toss-Up Winners

First we eliminate toss-up games.  That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list.  This cuts out the  Cardinals and Raiders.  We have 10 teams remaining.

3 – 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 Patriots, Eagles and Bills are no longer considered.  We have seven teams left.

4 – Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  This knocks the 24th ranked Colts and 26th ranked Dolphins out of consideration.  Leaving us with five teams.

5 – 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 against the 15th ranked Bengals, Broncos against 4th ranked Falcons and Vikings against the 11th ranked Texans.  That leaves us with two potential survivor pool picks for week 5.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-5

 6 – Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

After using our survivor pool pick strategy, we’re left with only two teams this week, the Steelers and Ravens.  This makes the decision fairly easy.

The Steelers are going against a turnover prone Jets team so we choose them over the Ravens.  Take the Steelers to survive NFL week 5.

NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 3 – 2016

SFpageheader

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 – Week 3 of 2016:

We start with our list of 16 predicted winners:

Patriots (vs. Texans)
Bengals (vs. Broncos)
Raiders (at Titans)
Cardinals (at Bills)
Jaguars (vs. Ravens)
Dolphins (vs. Browns)
Giants (vs. Redskins)
Packers (vs. Lions)
Panthers (vs. Vikings)
Seahawks (vs. 49ers)
Bucs (vs. Rams)
Steelers (at Eagles)
Chiefs (vs. Jets)
Colts (vs. Chargers)
Cowboys (vs. Bears)
Saints (vs. Falcons)

Now there are five 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.  Five teams are predicted  to win “toss-up games” in week 3.

Eliminated are the Patriots, Raiders, Cardinals, Cowboys and Saints.  We’re down to 11 potential picks.

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.  All of our road winners in week 3 have already been eliminated so we’re still at 11 teams left.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.   This eliminates four teams, the Dolphins (24), Colts (26) , Bucs (29) and Jaguars (31).  We have seven teams remaining.

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 Bengals, Chiefs and Steelers.  We have four team left to make our survivor pool pick for this week, Seahawks, Panthers, Packers and Giants.

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

We’ve picked the Panthers and Texans already this season so neither is considered for this week.  The Texans are projected to lose at Patriots on Thursday night anyway.

And then there were three…Seahawks, Packers and Giants.

nfl-survivor-pool-picks-week-3-2016

Final  Survivor Pool Pick Candidates

3 – Seahawks – Their offense is struggling mightily and even being at home, I’d be cautious with this pick.  The 49ers put up points on the road last week at a good Panthers team.  Seattle will need to score this week to win.

2 – Giants – The Giants host the Redskins and we predict a 3 point win.  This is a divisional game where the Redskins should show up and give extra effort not trying to start 0-3.

1 – Packers – The Packers come off a disappointing loss at Minnesota on Sunday night.  They’ll be at home hosting a Lions team that they have superior talent to this week.  Take the Packers to survive to week 4.
