NFL Survivor Pool Picks Week 9 – Tips, Advice, and Who to Avoid

Your NFL Survivor Pool contest strategy is solid but you don’t have the time to research Survivor picks for the week. No sweat – we’ve got you covered. Below is a look at three teams that our TB News crews feels are solid picks, along with one team to avoid for Week 9 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 Weekly Picks

NFL Survivor Pool Week 9 Picks

“Backfield Blues”

Cardinals (5-2) vs Dolphins (4-3), Sunday

Opening line: Cardinals, -4.5 points

This is more of a fade against the Dolphins than a pick for the Cards, as the Fins face too many red-flags in this matchup to be reasonably expected to have a chance to win.  Specifically, the Miami backfield will be missing their versatile starting RB Miles Gaskin and backup RB Matt Breida, leaving them only with last week’s healthy scratch Jordan Howard and little-used 3rd down specialist Patrick Laird to tote the rock on Sunday.  To make matters worse, the Dolphins  need to travel cross-country and are again starting rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa who looked a bit lost in his debut start last week.  Also to consider: Arizona looks like a pretty good squad on both sides of the ball.  Roll with Kyler and the Cardinals this week.

“Titan Up”

Titans (5-2) vs Bears (5-3), Sunday

Opening line: Titans, -6.5 points

This one seems pretty cut-and-dry to us. Tennessee is healthy across all 5 offensive options, including all-world RB Derrick Henry and surprise bounce-back WR2 Corey Davis.  WR1 AJ Brown and TE Jonnu Smith are supreme threats in the red zone for perennial over-achiever QB Ryan Tannehill.  Let’s not forget the Titans made a fantastic-looking run to the AFC championship game last year, and they look poised to do it again.  Chicago’s streaky QB Nick Foles and mediocre-at-best RB David Montgomery don’t look to pose much of a threat on the  road in Tennessee.  Titan up!

Bet on the Tennessee Titans


Jets (0-8) vs Patriots (2-5) , Monday Night

Opening line: Patriots, -7.5 points

We don’t love the Patriots, but let’s face it, if you still have them as a pick-able team, now looks like a good time to strike.  New York hasn’t won a game all year, and hasn’t really even threatened to win lately.  By sheer will, Pats coach Bill Belichick and QB Cam Newton should be able to get it done Monday Night.  New England is the choice here.

“Sunday Night Standoff”

Buccaneers (6-2) vs Saints (5-2), Sunday Night

Opening line: Buccaneers, -4.5 points

Despite the spread, New Orleans is still a Superbowl contender with only 2 losses all year.  All-world WR Michael Thomas should play this weekend along with future HOFer QB Drew Brees and do-everything back Alvin Kamara.  CB Marshawn Lattimore and the Saints defense is a tough unit to play against as they lock down the run game and can make occasional plays against the pass as well.  We also like Tampa Bay, who can attack in a variety of ways and is led by their own future HOF QB Tom Brady.  The game looks like a coin-flip to us, so let’s stay away this week and just enjoy watching the old guys battle it out.
