Week 13 Survivor Pool options

Recommended Posts

There's 3 of us left. Straight up no pts. My best options are:

 

BAL @CIN

IND @CLE

ARI @PHI

 

I think ARI is not a good pick because the west coast teams traveling east. That leaves BAL or IND. I'm leaning towards BAL because even though it's a division game I don't see how BAL loses to Cincy. Indy should be a safe one too, but if I feel good about BAL then I can use Indy next week or week after when they play CIN and then DET. I know you should pick the best chance each week and go from there but yeah, i'm looking ahead.

 

Thanks in advance!

i'd go with baltimore as well. like you said looking ahead you can use ariz next week playing stl and then indy the week after playing detroit. hopefully the other guys pick ariz and phili gets and upset on them.

one person is taking TEN, the other hasn't picked yet. Yeah it's a messed up site because you can see what game they choose so you can figure out who's taking what

Go w/ the Ravens. Not sure how Cincy will score more than 13-14 points in that game. Save Indy for Cincy or Detroit at home. Def stay away from the Arizona/Philly game.

 

So, I'm one of 7 left out of 100 for my survivor pool. Below are my options for the week:

 

Tenn vs Detroit- Love Tenn here but a couple things concern me about this game. 1) it's Detroit's super bowl. Everyone is complaining that they stink and why should they have a Thanksgiving game every year. 2) hate picking against winless teams this late in the year. Odds are, they will win a game. 3) How will Tenn respond after their first loss?

 

Dallas vs Seattle- Good option here as well. Concerns about this game 1) don't think Dallas is all the back. They still have some problems w/ their O line and injury concers. 2) National TV game. Players that are having bad seaons or crappy teams will sometimes show up on Nationally televised games because of pride. 3) Coaching mismatch- Holmgren a better coach than Phillips. 4) Turnover ratios. Dallas has a -6 turnover ratio. Whenever I look at games that appear to be a mis-match, I always look at turnovers. Typically, bad teams can only win against superior teams if the superior team makes mistakes (turnovers and penalties).

 

Balt vs Cincy- Another good option. However, it is a division rivalry game w/ a team that has a rookie head coach and qb playing on the road vs a team w/ extra rest and preparation from playing in the Thurs night game the week before.

 

What do you think?

I would go Indy here myself. they are playing better here at the end of the year. Baltimore scares me because of their lack of offense and I would not touch that Arizona game as IMO that is 2 evenly matched teams.

ARI could be a trap game. I would steer clear of that.

 

Then BAL looks better long term as IND still can be safely played later on.

We could ask Ocho to play return man, and turn Fitz loose ala Micheal Vick... No, I can't build a case for Cincy this week.

 

I vote BAL. As a Bengals fan, I don't see how the Bengals win this one.
