Survivor league picks

Recommended Posts

OK, I did this last year and am going to do it again this year.  For those not participating in TBD survivor leagues, who are you taking in week 1?

I'm riding Miami all year unless they play the Raiders. Then I'll consider it.

 

Edit: Meaning I'm taking the Ravens this week.

I have a bunch of entries.  I took Baltimore, Seattle and Philly.  I figure Seattle is a mortal lock but want to save them for later.

Seahawks. For those taking Ravens, beware of Fitz's hot starts and it's in Miami (92 with 95% humidity).

I thought about the Ravens, but I don't trust Lamar Jackson and their offense.  But otherwise, anyone playing Miami and Arizona should be a good bet (though I don't trust Detroit, either).  Redskins are going to suck this year, too; pretty much any team playing them has a good shot at a win.

Same. You're doomed. I've gotten bounced opening week the past two seasons. And I wasn't trying to save a team either year (Pats then Saints).

Absolutely. They are survivor gold this year.

My son warned me of Fitz starting hot.  But he's got little to work with in Miami.

Stafford might not be great, but he's too good to lose every game like the other two.

Correct. They are going to struggle to win 4 games. 

Also, not a huge fan of Jackson so that would be strike 2 against the Ravens.

 

Although as bad as Fish are I wouldn't be surprised with a 27-6 loss. I just think Seattle is safer for week 1.

I wouldn't Arizona until I've seen Murray play.  I think he'll struggle but I don't want to find out the hard way if he doesn't.

The Ravens' defense and running game will carry that team to a win.

I meant this week vs Arizona.  I agree with you that Detroit won't be that bad this year; Stafford is too up and down to go for/against Detroit on a weekly basis.

No argument here. I just think there's a slight chance Fitzy could go off. SLIGHT.

There's always a chance.  I just don't see the OL and skill positions being nearly as good as those he's played with in the past.

I went Philly. Yes I’m using them early but I can’t stand the thought of losing week 1.

I’m debating picking either Jacksonville or Tampa Bay in Week One. Heat and humidity can give the home team an edge. It’s less heart-breaking to go down in flames early! 🤪

I'm going on gut and picked the Bills this week.  If I were playing strategically, rather than emotionally I would have gone with Cleveland.

Anyone know where they report injuries?  I think I'm going all-in on Seattle over Bengals.
