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 6 NFL Survivor Pool pick.
Finished 2018 with 5 straight wins and off to a 2-0 start in 2019!
Eliminate Teams Already Used
First, I eliminate the team I’ve already used. The Seahawks, Ravens, Cowboys, Colts and Eagles have been picked already in our 4-1 starts (damn you Colts!). The The Seahawks, Ravens and Cowboys are all predicted winners this week so we go from 14 to 11 to start.
Eliminate Toss-Up Winners
First, I eliminate toss-up games. That means I’m scratching the 1 point winners out of the list.
One teams is a 1 point winners this week so we’re eliminating the Tennessee Titans. We’re down to 10 teams for our week 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.
Four predicted road winners in week 6 so we’re making another big cut to our list of 10 remaining candidates for our NFL Survivor Pool Pick this week. Gone are the Panthers (in London), Saints, Redskins and Falcons.
We have six teams remaining.
Eliminate Low Ranking Winners
Next, I look for teams that aren’t in our top 20 of the power rankings.
This doesn’t knocks out any teams from consideration for our week 6 NFL survivor pool pick so we’re still at six teams remaining.
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.
This eliminates the Chiefs who host the Texans, the Chargers playing the Steelers and the Vikings against the Eagles.
We have three teams to consider for our week 6 NFL survivor pool pick.

Final Week NFL Survivor Pool Pick Candidates
Surviving the week 5 NFL cut are:
- New England Patriots
- Los Angeles Chargers
- Green Bay Packers
Once, I’ve cut the teams down and have my final candidates for my NFL survivor pool pick, I rank them.
3 – Green Bay Packers (against Detroit Lions) – I stay away from divisional games when I have to have a win. These games can be close since teams are so familiar with one another.
2 – Los Angeles Chargers (against Pittsburgh Steelers) – It’s become a war of attrition for the Steelers. Mason Rudolph got a concussion last Sunday and is in concussion protocol. This is a must win for the Chargers. A loss puts their backs to the wall if they want to return to the playoffs.
1 – New England Patriots (against New York Giants) – The Pats at home in primetime are hard to beat. The Giants are without Saquon Barkley so they’ll have to get Daniel Jones to pull a miracle.
