NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 14
by Matt Severance - 12/4/2019
I follow a handful of public relations guys from Doc's affiliated-sportsbooks on Twitter, and regarding an upset-filled Week 13 around the NFL from a Survivor Pool perspective, one wrote that the Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers both losing as double-digit favorites essentially cleared the decks in that site's Survivor competition.

This is a Survivor Pool story first and foremost, but if you have been following my overall picks for a Confidence Pool competition, then you also are likely doing well. In the past four weeks in my main competition, I have won, finished second, third and second. I entered Monday night in Week 10 in first and needing the unbeaten 49ers to stay that way against Seattle - or at least tie. Of course, they lost.

Yet again we find ourselves writing about NFL survivor pools for another week, long after it seemed likely that they would be done and gone for the year. Last week was another week that went almost entirely to expectations for survivor pool players, with only the Raiders deciding not to get on their plane to New York and to send a high school team in their place, causing some issues for some players.

I'm sure you had used the San Francisco 49ers already this season in your Survivor Pool, but if you took them in Week 11 at home vs. the Arizona Cardinals, boy were you sweating down 16-0 in the second quarter. And if you took Arizona at +9.5 points from a betting perspective, boy did you get hosed. Maybe even worse if you had 49ers -10.

I felt pretty sure that last week was going to be the last week it was worth writing about NFL survivor pools for this season. We have already made it longer than we do a lot of years. But after a truly crazy Week 10, things went back to normal - or at least normal for this year - last week. This has mostly been a very straightforward season, and last week all four teams we picked - Oakland, Minnesota, San Francisco and Buffalo - all won.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 11

Every year in the NFL there's one WTF game. If I knew when/where it would come, I wouldn't be writing about it but spending my money somewhere on my yacht in the Caribbean. My first Survivor Pool story each year, I recommend sometimes playing "defense" against the rest of your competition. That is, avoid the game that just screams obvious victory on the off chance the unexpected happens and it burns everyone else.

Well, we knew it was going to happen at some point. Total carnage. The NFL survivor pool season this year had been far too easy. Every week there had been obvious picks, and they had all turned out as expected. It was nice, but it isn't supposed to work that way. And this past week it certainly didn't. On Yahoo, 50 percent of people picked New Orleans over the Falcons. I recommended that pick without a moment's hesitation, too.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 10
by Matt Severance - 11/6/2019
Now that everyone can shut up about the New England Patriots possibly going 19-0 - we called Baltimore's upset on Sunday night in Week 9 - the 2019 regular season probably will be remembered as the Year of the Backup Quarterback.

The strangest season of survivor pool play ever continues. Strange because it has been so easy. Last week again continued according to expectations. We picked out four teams that were very playable - Buffalo, San Francisco, Seattle and Dallas. The Niners and Seahawks made things a little more interesting than would be ideal, but again all four won.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 9
by Matt Severance - 10/30/2019
We heard rumors of guys like the Jets' Le'Veon Bell and Jamal Adams, Bengals' A.J. Green, Chargers' Melvin Gordon and Redskins' Trent Williams potentially being shopped ahead of Tuesday's NFL Trade Deadline, but it largely came and went without a peep. (I'm half-surprised the freaking Patriots didn't somehow get them all.) Williams, incidentally, has finally reported to the Redskins, but it's not like Washington is any good.

As I write this, the Monday night game between Miami and Pittsburgh has not been played yet. I'm not going to worry about that, though, because it's not like anyone with even half a brain would watch that dog of a game. So far, this has been yet another pretty straightforward week for survivor pool players in what has been the easiest season of survivor pool play that the world has ever seen. The last couple of weeks we have just been applying a formula, and unless the Dolphins pull off a shocking upset today that formula will be undefeated again.
NFL Survivor Pools Expert Advice and Predictions for Week 8
by Trevor Whenham - 10/23/2019
Another week, and other very easy set of survivor pool picks last week. This has been the oddest season I have ever seen for survivor pools. There have been strange and shocking results in the NFL for sure this year, but they mostly haven't come in the most obvious of games. The bad teams have been really bad, and the good teams have been doing their jobs.

I always recommend waiting until the last possible second to make your Survivor Pool Pick because of potential last-minute injury news, but I really stress that here for Week 8 because there could be trades all weekend ahead of Tuesday's NFL trade deadline. On Tuesday alone, we saw the league's two unbeaten teams get better with New England acquiring Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu and San Francisco acquiring Denver receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 7
by Matt Severance - 10/16/2019
Is the 2015 NFL Draft looking like one giant bust in retrospect or what? Of course, the Tampa Bay Bucs took Heisman winner Jameis Winston at No. 1 overall out of Florida State and the Tennessee Titans grabbed Heisman winner Marcus Mariota out of Oregon at No. 2. Both those guys were simply awesome in college and mostly loved by NFL scouts. It sure looks like neither will be back with their current team next season as both play on the final year of their rookie contracts and are struggling.

This has been a very strange season so far in the world of NFL survivor pools. Each week the choices have been so easy they have all but slapped you in the face. And, with the one notable exception of the Chiefs two weeks ago, they have turned out just as expected. I have played these pools for many years now and have never seen so many people alive in my pools after six weeks as I have now. And what is crazy is that it just seems set to continue again in Week 7.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 6
by Matt Severance - 10/9/2019
The various sportsbooks had a very good Week 5 around the NFL. They cashed in big time on the Indianapolis Colts upsetting the Chiefs in Kansas City on Sunday night as they books were more exposed on KC than any other team. They also did well on teams like Green Bay and Arizona winning on the road.

A lot of survivor pool players last week took a big hit - a fatal one as things go in these games. Philadelphia was the most popular pick, and they took care of business. But the Chiefs were a pick of a lot of people used as well, and they fell to the Colts in a fairly decisive manner. It wasn't a lopsided score, but it sure felt like Indy had the Chiefs figured out like not many teams have in the last couple of years. If you are still alive, though, then there is more work to be done.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 5
by Matt Severance - 10/2/2019
Wow, here's hoping that you ignored my advice last week in a Survivor Pool as my top four recommendations, the Rams (over Tampa Bay), Texans (over Carolina), Falcons (over Tennessee) and Ravens (over Cleveland) all lost outright! OK, I deserve a bit of a break because I was moving last week so perhaps a bit distracted, but jeez I can't remember a week like that before.

This is, by a wide margin, the toughest week of the season to date when it comes to NFL survivor pools selections. In fact, this is the first week that has taken more than a second of thought. It's almost unfair how things set up this week. The three worst teams in the NFL right now feel like the Dolphins, Bengals and Redskins - probably in that order.
NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 4
by Matt Severance - 9/25/2019
No real earth-shattering upsets in Week 3 around the NFL. Detroit went to Philadelphia and upset the Eagles, but Philly has been a crap September team for two years now and was really short-handed injury-wise. I can't say I expected the Giants to win in Tampa, but it's not like I had all that much faith in the Bucs. Just none in Daniel Jones, and boy were we all wrong.
