NFL Survivor Pool Pick Strategy
There are simple steps to cut down your potential picks for your NFL survivor pool. Follow the strategy below to make your week 15 NFL Survivor Pool pick.
Finished 2018 with 5 straight wins and off to a 12-2 start in 2019 as we easily survived last week as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Washington Redskins last Sunday.
We have 16 games in NFL week 14 so that’s our list to start. We use our data driven predicted NFL winners.
Eliminate Toss-Up Winners
First, I eliminate toss-up games. That means I’m scratching the 1 point winners out of the list.
The Bills, Bucs and Vikings are predicted 1 point winners this week so they’re scratched off the list. We’re down to 13 teams for our week 15 NFL Survivor Pool Pick.
Eliminate Road Winners
Then I eliminate road teams. When you need a guaranteed win like you do to win your survivor pool, go with a home team.
This thins the herd. We have four predicted road winners in week 15 so we’re slicing our list to 8 remaining candidates for our NFL Survivor Pool Pick this week. Gone are the Patriots, Eagles, Seahawks and Browns.
Eliminate Low Ranking Winners
Next, I look for teams that aren’t in our top 20 of the power rankings.
This knocks out two teams from consideration for our week 15 NFL survivor pool pick as the Raiders and Giants are ranked too low for consideration. We’re down to 6 teams.
Eliminate Winners Playing Good Teams
Finally, I look for our predicted winners that are playing teams ranked in the top 16 of our data driven NFL power rankings and take them out of consideration.
The Packers and Titans are both out as they face divisional foes.
We have 4 teams to consider for our week 14 NFL survivor pool pick.

Final Week 15 NFL Survivor Pool Pick Candidates
Surviving the NFL week 15 cut are:
- Baltimore Ravens
- Kansas City Chiefs
- San Francisco 49ers
- New Orleans Saints
I then compare this list against who I’ve already used this season. That list includes Seahawks, Ravens, Cowboys, Colts, Eagles, Patriots, Bills, Vikings, Saints, Raiders, Bears, Chiefs and Packers.
4 – Kansas City Chiefs – The Chiefs won a big game in New England last Sunday and return home to host a divisional foe in the Denver Broncos. I shy away from divisional games due to familiarity so I’ll look elsewhere.
3 – New Orleans Saints – The Saints should be motivated after losing a close one last Sunday at home to the 49ers. I expect them to play great so this is a solid pick if you haven’t used the Saints yet.
2 – Baltimore Ravens – Do the lowly Jets have any chance? Baltimore wins big but since I’ve used them already I’m going to go to the opposite coast.
1 – San Francisco 49ers – The Niners won in New Orleans last week. Is this a letdown situation? Atlanta has played well the past few weeks but will travel across country for this game. I do have some hesitation but having not used the 49ers, now is as good time as ever.
