Survivor Pool Pick Strategy:
There are easy steps to cut down your potential pick for your NFL survivor pool. Follow the strategy below to make week 7 NFL Survivor Pool picks. The Lions and Saints have a bye week.
Eliminate the Teams Already Picked in 2018
We eliminate the four teams I’ve already picked including the Lions (week 1), Redskins (week 2), Vikings (week 3), Jaguars (week 4), Panthers (week 5) and Packers (week 6). The Jaguars, Vikings and Lions are predicted winners so they’re out for this week. The other three are on a bye or predicted losers. We have 11 teams to consider for week 7.
Eliminate Toss-Up Winners
Next, I eliminate toss-up games. That means we’re cutting the 1 point winners out of the list. The Colts are predicted one point winners so they’re not considered for our week 7 NFL Survivor Pool Pick. 10 team remain.
Eliminate Road Winners
Then 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, Cowboys, Chargers (in London) and Rams are predicted winners away from home this week so they’re out of contention for our week 7 NFL Survivor Pool Pick. Six teams remain.
Eliminate Low Ranking Winners
Next, I look for teams that aren’t in our 20 of the power rankings. This eliminates thre teams, the Falcons (24), Bucs (26) and Cardinals (31). Three teams are left to consider for my week 7 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 Chiefs (against Bengals) and Ravens (against Saints). We’re down to just 1 for our week 7 NFL Survivor Pool Picks.
Final Week 7 NFL Survivor Pool Pick Candidate
After cutting down our list of potential NFL Survivor Pool Picks for week 7, only one team made the cut, the Super Bowl Champion Eagles. Cam Newton and company goes to Philly to battle the Eagles who are coming off a Thursday night demolition of the rival Giants. Take the Philadelphia Eagles to survive NFL Week 7.
