2020 SURVIVOR POOL THREAD

Recommended Posts

49ers and Cardinals were never the play this week. Exactly why holding picks just to hold them is not the correct move.

That being said, Cardinals are 100% the play next week unless you used them in week 2. They’re still fairly overrated and next week is the only real chance to use them all year looking at their schedule. It also happens to be arguably the best matchup of the week. No brainer.

If no Cardinals i would burn the Texans.

Oooo didn’t think about the cowboys vs giants. Are they at home? 

No way I’d even think of using the Cowboys until they show they’re not flat out horrendous on defense.

I would still pick the Cowboys before the Texans especially after a coaching change.  Even if the Cowboys defense is really bad, I don’t see the Giants matching them on offense.

Ravens if you still have them and I suspect Arizona will be a heavy chalk pick considering they have no future value.

Get through this week and week 6 and week 8 will get very interesting.

Saints should get Thomas and Lattimore back, I like their chances at home on MNF against the Chargers.

The Giants looked fiesty against the Rams.  Here's hoping they can pull it off versus a Dallas defense that seems allergic to tackling.

True. SF still has a much better defense then Jags even with all their injuries. The more I think about this matchup the more it’s appealing. Miami is a competitive team and they’d be Home vs SF, then the cross country travel. I think it’s gonna be a close game. 


The 49ers are at home against Miami.

I warned some people on Sportsbook and called the Eagles upset. They were desperate for a win and I figured the 49ers backups would eventually cost them a game.

That's not chickening out.  I chickened out, I took the Chiefs.  But anytime you can take the Champs when less than 1% of your pool is and they're playing a team that's got their backup QB going, it seemed like a good bet.

Well I mean I went with a unsure pick didn’t wanna go heavy favorite like Rams or Ravens last week. But as game day got closer I just had a feeling Eagles we’re gonna fight. Ya sounds like you got Chiefs in a good spot there.

I have to pick 22 teams and I still don't feel like I'll ever resort to using the Bengals...

So you think Flacco is a downgrade to Darnold?

I’m always wary of picking against capable backup QBs starting their first game... no tape for the other team to study.

 

Now the question is, is Flacco capable anymore? Who knows.  But the Cardinals will also be a West coast road team traveling East for an early game.

At some point you gotta think the wounded animal thing kicks in for the Giants, and lord knows the Cowboys despite all of their talent on paper haven't played up to it.

That was more of the result of Rams just looking bad. As bad as the Dallas D is the Giants offense is just as pathetic. They wont be able to keep up with Prescott.

Next week is tough.. chiefs vs Raiders is solid. Or ravens vs bengals. I used both those options already, so personally looking at rams vs Washington, Cardinals vs jets, or Texans vs jags. 

 

I would be scared of using the Rams if Chase Young is back. Also are we sure the Texans are a better team than the Jags?

I agree. West to East still matters. 

 

I also think Sam Darnold sucks. 

 

Joe Flacco is proven (was). 

 

Sam Darnold will not throw anything more than 5 yards down field. 

 

Defenses smother the jets. 

 

Gore can't run, yes he's washed, but also defenses smothering the line. 

 

Only receiver that gets any work is Crowder because he's running so close and has a good first step and defenses giving up things underneath. 

 

They smother Flacco he's gonna throw a 50 yard bomb to Perriman likes he's done in other jersey colors.

 

Sam Darnold is not a good QB. 

 

Joe Flacco is likely washed. 

 

Joe Flacco to me today is still an upgrade over Sam Darnold though. 

 

And cardinals D is non existent. 

 

Should cards win, absolutely. 

 

Will they? Probably, but I bet it's pretty close. And pretty close games always come down to turnovers and big plays. 

 

I wouldn't touch Cards myself. And people saying the Cowboys game is scary but confidently going this way. 

 

I think the Cowboys is a near lock. 

 

Whatever though, we'll see. I've been wrong before for sure.

I have a few rules, I know no one cares, but I've won big time survivor leagues a few times over last 10 years and I only do 1 a year. 

 

Never bet against home division dogs. 

 

Never bet against teams that just had coach fired. The teams often hated that coach and play inspired football for at least 1 week and always shock you. 

 

Texans will beat Jags this week, I'm pretty confident on that.
