Survivor Pool pick - TB or HOU?

Recommended Posts

Down to 4 guys in my office survivor pool. Straight up no spreads. I have TB selected (so does one other owner). What do people think of HOU over DET? I'm thinking of taking HOU and saving TB for another week.

 

MIA vs BAL is still an option for me as well

 

So far I've used PIT, NYG, CAR, TEN, JAC, NYJ

I personally feel that HOU is a better pick...I wouldnt be concerned with either really, but I think HOU is desperate for a win and won't take anything for granted while for some reason, I can see TB looking ahead to DAL next week...

 

I also think there could be some odd upside with Seneca Wallace.

I'd go with Houston

Houston at home vs. Detroit

 

Tampa at home vs. Seattle

 

Tough call... I think that both Houston and Tampa win their repsective matchups, so the key woudl be to see if either of them has a future matchup that looks like another easy victory. Tampa has a game against the Chiefs coming up in a couple of weeks. I would probably go with Houston this week, and then use Tampa against KC.

 

Edit to add: Tampa also has a game against Detroit later in the season as well. Either of those matchups will be good for Tampa. For sure use Houston this week.

That's what I was kinda thinking. There are 3 other guys left and one of them already has TB selected. So far I've used PIT, NYG, CAR, TEN, JAC, NYJ

My two cents x 2

 

1. How do you know who the other guys selected? Picks in survivor pools should be confidential until game time

 

2. NEVER base your survivor pool pick based on what the other guys choose. Your goal in Survivor Pools every week is not to win the thing, it's to not get eliminated, and you do that by picking what you think is the strongest play every week, regardless of what the other guys pick.

 

I like TB personally.

I can't see exactly what team they picked. I don't know how the guy who runs it set up the site, but I can see what game they have selected.

I don't like that setup personally, it's obvious what their pick is if you know what game they picked. I guess if you can sucker a guy into looking at that too much and psych him into picking another game, that'd be OK, but I'd rather have it be confidential.

I agree I think it's weird. I never knew it was set like this until last week.

I took Tampa this week. Just can't bring myself to pick the Texans, even over DET.
