NFT: Survivor Pool Advice Needed

Danny Kanell : 11/7/2018 1:30 pm
My big money pool is down to 8 people left from 58. Double elimination and all 8 have 1 loss so no more lifelines.

The options i'm considering are:

Rams (Home) over Seattle
Falcons (Away) over Browns
Jets (Home) over Buffalo
Eagles (Home) over Dallas

I'm leaning towards the Rams because me and one other guy have the Rams left as an option so it could be an opportunity to separate myself if there are upsets but they're a bit scary because the easily could have lost the past 2 games.

Thoughts?
Kinda need to know who else you have left

Looking ahead to week 11 of the teams you listed

Atl hosts Dallas

Rams play kc in Mexico

And Philly at saints

Jets have a bye

Wouldn’t want to have to pick any of those

Gun to head though atl would be my choice
First,

I'd rule the Jets out for this week. Two bad teams/division rivals would be an avoid for me if I have other choices.

I'd rank the other choices
Rams
Eagles
Falcons

Falcons on the road is the worst of the 3 options. I could make case for either Rams or Eagles, so whichever of those 2 you prefer is probably the way to go.

I'm still in 2, I have GB in one and Philly in the other. Didn't have the Rams available in either.
I meant atl this week

True, I rarely look too far ahead  
Danny Kanell : 11/7/2018 1:39 pm : link
But you make a good point.

I've used the Ravens, Saints, Vikings, Chargers, Pats, Packers, Colts, Chiefs and Bears.

I try to avoid all division opponents and the browns are still the browns and shouldn’t be able to keep up

If I went Rams, I think my best available option next week would be Atlanta at home vs Dallas. Then Philly in 2 weeks home against the Giants.
Panthers might be best option next week at Detroit  
eli4life : 11/7/2018 1:45 pm : link
Or bucs over giants
Normally I'd agree with YAJ  
pjcas18 : 11/7/2018 1:46 pm : link
but in this case ATL on the road in CLE is a good option if you just want to be sure of the W

I'd save the Rams, and use ATL out of the options you listed, CLE has won 3 games in 3 years and Williams is coaching his 2nd game.

Should also mention I've never made it past maybe week 4 (even with double elim) in survivor pools - in full disclosure.

Ha, Rams it is! JK:)
Funny story  
eli4life : 11/7/2018 1:49 pm : link
I was in a big single elimination one this year was over two weeks ago . Myself and about 80% were out week 1 by taking saints at home vs tampa

Danny Kanell : 11/7/2018 1:50 pm : link
Sounds like McCown is going to start Sunday for the Jets. Does that change anyone's mind on the Jets?
I echo Yaj's post  
giants#1 : 11/7/2018 1:51 pm : link
I'm in a similar situation this week and going with the Rams.

Darnold is apparently out this week, so I'd definitely avoid the Jets.

Yeah, that game hurt alot of people in my pool and Minnesota losing to the Bills finished them all off.
ATL isn't a horrible choice  
YAJ2112 : 11/7/2018 2:01 pm : link
but they are a better team in a dome.
I'd actually like the Jets a little more  
YAJ2112 : 11/7/2018 2:02 pm : link
if it was McCown and not Darnold starting. Probably not enough to take that game, but I'd worry a little less about Darnold throwing a rookie pick 6.

Do you know that Darnold is starting? I read Darnold is in a walking boot. Not that that precludes him from starting, but it seems like the Jets may be looking for reasons to get Darnold off the field.
SF?

I did well picking against the Gmen for a few weeks :)
I'm stuck..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 11/7/2018 3:28 pm : link
too. Down to teh final three and I'm scraping the barrel trying to come up with who to pick. I'm taking the Eagles, but gave a lot of consideration to the Jets.
Still alive in a pool  
bigbluehoya : 11/7/2018 3:32 pm : link
that started with ~10k entries, 536 remaining.

I believe I'm taking Chiefs this week (still need to confirm with my brother-in-law and our friend who I co-manage the entry with)

The more I look into it, the more I agree with this thought.
