2013 NFL Survivor: Week 5 (Loser Pools)
Eagles definitely lost last week.
Teams used: Ravens, Redskins, Raiders, Eagles.
Jacksonville (at St. Louis; Safety Rating™ 1.75)
NY Jets (at Atlanta; SR 1.94)
There are probably a decent number of people who have already used the Jags, and didn't take NYJ in W2, so I'd expect a lot of them to use the Jets here. They can't be crazy popular, since a bunch of folks did burn them against the Pats, but it'd be nice to save them.
Dallas (vs. Denver; SR 2.48)
The Broncos are pretty good, eh? Not too many opportunities to use the Cowboys, either; it's pretty much this or Week 10 at New Orleans. They might be pretty popular though, this is a situation where the Broncos' lack of popularity in normal pools doesn't tell us much.
Detroit (at Green Bay; SR 2.50)
I like this. Certainly not too obvious, given the current NFC North standings. Decent SR, and I can't see any other week that I'd even consider taking the Lions.
Houston (at San Francisco; SR 2.86)
Using the Texans would be somewhat amusing, but I can't see any reason to take Houston rather than Detroit.
This week's pick is the Lions.
