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 from consideration are the Redskins and Texans.

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 Chargers, Titans and Falcons are out of consideration in NFL Week 16.  11 teams remain.

Eliminate Low Ranking Winners

Next, I look for team that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings.  The Saints (21), Eagles (23) and Rams (29) are out of contention for our NFL week 16 survivor pool pick.  Eight teams are still alive.

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 Bills, Raiders, Steelers, Chiefs and Cowboys.  Three teams remain

Eliminate the Teams We’ve Already Picked in 2016

Three teams remain, the Packers, Patriots and Seahawks.  We’ve previously used the Packers and Patriots.
