2012 NFL Survivor: Week 17
CAR: W, 17-6
IND: W, 20-13
NE: W, 23-16
DEN: W, 34-12
GB: W, 55-7
WAS: W, 27-20
Very chalky week, with 97% of OFP advancing. We're still at 1.6% of the initial entry pool.
Teams used: Eagles, Bengals, Cowboys, Texans, Ravens, Bucs, Giants, Bears, Packers, Patriots, Falcons, Titans, Lions, 49ers, Seahawks, Broncos.
This week's consensus numbers from OFP and Yahoo!:
San Francisco (vs. Arizona; Safety Rating 9.12)
New Orleans (vs. Carolina; SR 6.85)
SR not high enough.
NY Giants (vs. Philadelphia; SR 7.65)
Seattle (vs. St. Louis; SR 8.48)
San Diego (vs. Oakland; SR N/A)
No line yet, but I think this will be a decent option, especially since Palmer is out. There just happens to be an option below where a team better than San Diego is hosting a team that's an even bigger mess than Oakland.
Denver (vs. Kansas City; SR 9.22)
Tennessee (vs. Jacksonville; SR 6.59)
Pittsburgh (vs. Cleveland; SR N/A)
Here we go. Weeden, McCoy and Richardson all managed to get hurt last Sunday, so it looks like the Browns will be starting Duke legend Thaddeus Lewis at QB and Montario Hardesty at HB. So, no line yet but it's going to be tough sledding for Cleveland.
Things could change with injury announcements and/or actual lines on these games, but for now this week's pick is the Steelers.
