Survivor League Question

Postby gmoney973 » Wed Aug 29, 2007 5:58 pm

wasnt sure where to post this but here goes...

What team would you go with for week1:

Minnesota at home over Atlanta
Houston at home over Kansas City
Seattle at home over Tampa Bay

Remember this is a survivor league so i cant use this team again the rest of the year

Personally, I'm leaning towards Seahawks. 1st week usually stinks in these, but this 1st week seems awfully tough.

This is one of the hardest 1st weeks I can ever remember. I've taken the Seahawks in my money survivor league, and am still up in the air as to who to take in my Cafe survivor league.

The three games I like the most in week 1 are Seattle vs Tampa, Pittsburgh at Cleveland, and San Francisco vs Arizona.

So, of the ones you have listed, I think Seattle is the clear choice. They're at home, it's a non-divisional game, and Tampa Bay doesn't look too good.

Their are a few obvious games this week, but my survivor league is a two loss league, so I am considerring taking a risk this week to save better teams for later in the year. What do you all think of taking the Packers on the road vs. the Giants (without Manning, Jacobs, ect.)? Is this a reasonable gamble, or should I play safe this early in the season?

I'd still play it safe. I'm going with Pitt this week. I do think GB wins, but I wouldn't make it a lock by any means.

With Manning likely to play, I have to agree. Although I am taking Jax hosting Atlanta this week.

Check out week 10. PIT hosting CLE is the only no brainer on the list. I would save PIT for that week.

I don't like looking ahead too much. Maybe a few weeks, but not all the way to week 10 and having the schedule prevent certain picks.

Besides, Carolina at home, Denver at KC and Chicago at Oakland all look really good in Week 10.

I am rethinking the PIT pick, because I think Buffalo could put up some points. I don't think they can stop the Pitt offense, but there's still probably better options this week.

All good. I like to think out loud on this thread and hear how others are approaching the same situation. In the end, we will each do what we think is right.
