NFL Survivor League Advice

I know it is a little early in the week to decide this but I thought I would take a look at the games for the upcoming week to see who would be the best teams to pick for your survivor league (assuming you’re still in it).

In case you did not know what a Survivor league here is a little explanation. You are in a contest with other people and everybody picks team per week that they think will win. Sounds easy right, think again. Once you pick that team, (I.E. you picked New Orleans last week over the Lions) you cannot use this team again for the rest of the season. So when making week 2’s picks N.O would not be an option for you. If you picked Detroit, you are out of the contest. Last man standing, AKA the survivor, wins.

Back to the forecast now. There are three games that I think should result in wins for you. The first game I’m going to look at is Washington vs. St. Louis. St. Louis laid a nice goose egg last week against the Seahawks and looked even worse than the Lions. Being Washington’s first home game of the season and coming off a tough loss against NYG where they looked I think this is a no brainer.

Pick- Redskins

Another great pick is the Minnesota Vikings. This week they go to Detroit where if you saw the game from last week it does not look like they will be getting a win anytime soon with that defense. I know it was Drew Brees who carved them up through the air last week, but it will be Adrian “All Day” Peterson who makes Detroit pay this time.
Pick- Vikings

The final pick is Green Bay vs. Cincinnati. It looked like Carson Palmer is still not completely back from his injury and the offense looked pretty stagnant. The Packers are trying to rally and continue their success after a late minute TD pushed them ahead of the Chicago Bears. With the game being in GB it’s tough to go against the Packers.

Pick- Packers

Who do you guys think is a sure pick this weekend? Leave some comments and tell us your opinion.
