You’re confident in your NFL Survivor Pool contest strategy but don’t want to spend countless of hours researching Survivor picks for the week. No worries – we’ve got you covered. Below is a look at a pair of teams that our TB News crews feels are good picks, along with which teams to avoid for Week 7 of the 2020 season. Good luck!
NOTE: Keep an eye out for any possible game postponements or cancellations due to Covid-19 team outbreaks. It’s a good idea to steer clear of picks from games that may be postponed or canceled. Consult your NFL survivor contest rules on how postponed or canceled games are dealt with. Also keep an eye out for late-week injuries that may affect your pick as these strategy articles are generally written early in the week.
NFL Survivor Pool Week 7 Picks
Jets (0-6) vs Bills (4-2), Sunday
Opening line: Bills, -13.0 points
So we don’t figure you’ll gain equity with this pick, as the Buffalo Bills project to be the most-picked team this week in your pools, but if you are just looking to move on to week 8 we can’t argue the pick. The New York Jets recently released their best offensive player RB Le’Veon Bell, who was promptly picked up by the Super Bowl champ KC Chiefs. Jets coach Adam Gase, as he elaborated earlier this week, believes offensive play-calling ranks as “step 10” in team performance and the Jets are currently only on “step 2.” What? While we try to figure that one out we’ll just take QB Josh Allen and the Bills and move on to next week safely.
“One of These Things is Not Like the Other”
Football Team (1-5) vs Cowboys (2-4), Sunday
Opening line: Pick’em
We thought it could be helpful here to list some important items that Washington does not currently have:
- A starting quarterback
- A capable receiver not named Terry McLaurin
- A running back that is not an “experiment”
- A pass defense
- A front-office not under investigation for workplace abuse
- A team name
The Dallas Cowboys have 4 of those things. Pick Dallas.
NFL Survivor Pool Week 7 Advice: Who to Avoid
“No Trust in Justins”
Chargers (1-4) vs Jaguars (1-5) , Sunday
Opening line: Chargers, -7.5 points
As good as rookie Bolts QB Justin Herbert has looked, we have to understand that rookie quarterbacks will be inconsistent and therefore bring a wide range of performance outcomes into play. Backup-turned-starter RB Justin Jackson is fine in a positive game-script, but what if the Chargers fall behind in this matchup and need to pass the ball even more than they have recently? The Chargers are a touchdown favorite at home which we like, but the reality is the Chargers have just one win on the season, have a rookie at QB and are missing their all-star RB Austin Ekeler. Look for a better spot.
Rams (4-2) vs Bears (5-1), Monday Night
Opening line: Rams, -6.0 points
The Los Angeles Rams have a 4-2 record this season so far, which seems pretty impressive until you dive into the details. The Rams four wins have all come against the hapless NFC East division teams who have a combined record of 5-18-1 so far. The only capable teams they have played so far (the Niners and Bills) resulted in losses. We categorize the 5-1 visiting Chicago Bears as a capable team with a strong defense and average offense so let’s just fade this matchup entirely and look elsewhere.
