Strategy for Survivor pools

Postby Dumb Meat Head » Fri Nov 11, 2005 1:21 pm

Alright, just started a survivor pool last week and picked Seattle over Arizona.

This week I'm going with CHicago over SF

I figured Chi is very likely to win and it might be tough to rely on them in most weeks with their terrible offense so this week makes sense.

But in general is it a better idea to take locks with the really really good teams (like Indy over Houston) early and just hope you outlast everyone who is trying to make riskier picks in order to save the easy ones for later? Or is it better to do just that, try to find riskier picks that are still good ones and rely on teams that are middle of the road until you get to the end?

Finally, if you think I should change my pick what team would you suggest?
Qb- Drew Brees, e. Manning
WR- Reggie Wayne, Anquan Boldin, Lee Evans, Antwaan Randle-El
Rb- Dom Davis, Kevin Jones, Ronnie Brown, Mewelde Moore, Willie Parker
Te- Jason Witten
K- Rackers
Def- Chicago, Jax

It all depends on how many people are in pool. If less than 10 are left pick the lock for the week and dont look ahead. If theyre are more id probably look ahead at upcoming schedules. Chacnes are at this point of the season there should be 1-9 people left

I'd say your picks are good ones, and for the reasons you stated. Chicago is a very risky pick, but you just don't get a better matchup than SF, so if you are going to take a shot at it this is the week. Doing so will save your powerhouse teams for later when the competition is stiff and you need the sure thing.
