NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 17) - Targets and Avoids

The Raiders (+7.5) and Cardinals (+8) scored the biggest upsets of Week 16. Oakland beat the Chargers and Arizona handled Seattle. The Packers (+4.5), Jets (+3), Eagles (+2.5), and Dolphins (+1.5) also won in smaller upsets. Week 17 is upon us and if you’ve made it this far in your survivor or loser survivor pool, it’s...

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 16) - Targets and Avoids

The Atlanta Falcons delivered the biggest blow in Week 15 to whatever remains of survivor pools with a last-second win against the 49ers as 10-point road dogs. Just more than six percent of entrants took the Niners on Run Your Pool's site-wide distribution pick. That's because San Fran was the sixth-most selected team. There was only... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 15) - Targets and Avoids

Week 13 was a pretty chalky one with just three underdogs winning outright. The biggest upset was the Broncos absolutely annihilating the Houston Texans who were still celebrating their "Super Bowl" win against the Patriots the week prior. Three weeks remain and I'd be a fool to think there are hundreds who are reading this... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 14) - Targets and Avoids

If there were a dozen people left in a survivor pool this past week, odds are those pools are down to just several. The upsets began Thursday when the Bills beat the Cowboys, and continued Sunday when the Dolphins and Redskins won as 10-point underdogs. If you're somehow still alive in your pool with just...

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 13) - Targets and Avoids

Week 12 came and went with nary an upset. The biggest upset was the Washington Redskins beating the Lions as 4-point underdogs. The Panthers should have beaten their division rival Saints as 10-point dogs, but Joey Slye missed two extra points and a 28-yard field goal. Survivor pools are desolate at this point in the...

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 12) - Targets and Avoids

Sunday was one of the worst Sunday's Vegas has had all season and remaining entrants in survivor pools nearly had the same fate. However, the Vikings rallied from a 20-0 halftime deficit, the 49ers scored late, and the Cowboys win was much narrower than it should have been. The Saints, Bills, and Ravens took care... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 11) - Targets and Avoids

Doomsday finally arrived. The Falcons' domination of the Saints eliminated the majority of remaining entrants in survivor pools. If you avoided the Saints, odds are you took the Colts in the late game. Of course, the Dolphins beat them as well. More upsets were found as the Titans beat the Chiefs, the Steelers manhandled the... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 10) - Targets and Avoids

Week 9 was one of the rare weeks where every single home team, bar the Jaguars in London, not only won on the Sunday slate but covered as well. As for survivor pools, the 49ers, Bills, and Cowboys won without much of a sweat. The Seahawks just got by the Buccaneers, and had Seattle lost,... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 9) - Targets and Avoids

Week 8 was one for the favorites, as only two underdogs won outright, the Chargers and the Eagles. This means that only a scant number of entrants were knocked out of survivor pools. And of course, you had those fools who forgot to submit an entry and were eliminated. How can someone still be alive... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 8) - Targets and Avoids

Disaster averted. The Bills found themselves trailing against the lowly Dolphins but pulled it out late. Had Buffalo lost, more than 50 percent of remaining entrants in survivor pools would have been knocked out. The 49ers did their part in the monsoon in D.C while the Patriots cruised against the Jets. All my picks to... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 7) - Targets and Avoids

Another week, more upsets. The Cowboys, Chiefs and Chargers all went down knocking out about 15-20 percent of remaining entrants in survivor pools, including myself. The Baltimore and New England wins were never in doubt, but the Redskins and Packers just barely squeaked out wins. If you've made it this far, you've done a job... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 6) - Targets and Avoids

The two double-digit favorites, Patriots and Eagles, did their part Sunday cruising to wins. However the Bears “great and vaunted” defense allows yet another game-winning drive, the Broncos Defense stifles the Chargers, and the Chiefs lose outright to the Colts at home knocking tons of entrants out in survivor. I rightly gave out the Patriots... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 5) - Targets and Avoids

Week 4 was finally a week where the underdogs came through. More than a quarter of entries in pools were knocked out thanks to the Rams, Colts,  Texans and Ravens all losing. My survivor plays were 4-2 last Sunday, as I managed to avoid the Texans and Ravens, with their opponents, the Panthers and Browns,... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 4) - Targets and Avoids

Through three weeks of the season, it sure looks like we'll see a Patriots-Chiefs AFC Championship rematch. Both of those teams look unstoppable. My one qualm with New England is they've yet to face a formidable opponent. The combined record of New England's opponents is 0-9. Now they get a real test on the road... Read More

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 3) - Targets and Avoids

The Patriots look unstoppable, the Steelers look like toast, and the Ravens look like they'll control the AFC North. I gave out the Pats and Ravens, got burned on Pitt, but wisely avoided the Panthers.  Like I wrote last week, don't overreact just yet. It's only two games. I understand it's already an eighth of...

NFL Survivor Pool Picks (Week 2) - Targets and Avoids

Seattle squeaks by the Bengals and a third of all survivor pools breathe a sigh of relief. On to the next week where hopefully you don’t need to sweat one out again. My other survivor play was the Broncos and they barely showed up. Most love to overreact after Week 1. Such thoughts seem to... Read More

Tight End ADP Winners and Losers: 2019 Season Review
