Eliminator!!! HELP!!!

Postby NotInMyFantasyWorld » Thu Sep 13, 2012 4:11 pm

At my company we are playing a NFL Eliminator Office Poll. Pretty sure some of you know how this works. Pick a Team that you think will win but trick is that you can't use that team later on in the season as you advance. I just advanced last week by picking the Eagles to beat the Browns....What's my safe pick out of these match ups this week.

Bucs vs Giants >>> Giants Winning.
Cards vs Pats >>>> Patriots Winning. I really wanna save the pats for later on in the season.
Browns vs Bengals>>> Bengals Winning.


Please Advice, and i will advice back.

Thank You.

Don't go with the Bucs vs. Giants game as that is more of a toss up.

I would say go with Vikings over Colts as it would save the better teams for later in the year.

New England @ home for their opener vs the Cards?
Texans @ Jax? Divisional game scares me a little.

I don't like the Bengals. They just got spanked by Baltimore and who knows if their for real. Also, Cleveland is another division game.

In my own pool I think I am going to take New England. Seems like the surest bet this week. If you want to take a risky one, Oakland at Miami. Miami looks like absolutely crud and Oakland would have won that game if not for the special teams debacle.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Go with the Pats -- don't feel like you have to save them for later in the season. That's how teams get knocked out early. Good teams and bad teams will emerge as the season rolls along, and key injuries will also help make late-season matchups easier than they appear now.

That's my take on it, go with what look like gimme's early on.

99% of the time, go with the home team.

Things will shake out as the season progresses.

A handful of teams will end up being better than expected.

A handul of teams will be worse than expected.

A handful of teams will be god awful.

Pick on the god awful ones as the season moves along.

"Saving" teams is a good way to get knocked out early.

Most important thing to do in a survival pool is to win.

Week 1 I took Houston over Miami.

Week 2 I'm going New England over Arizona.

This might be a good idea for a weekly thread. Maybe make it a poll.

I agree with the crowd here. This is one of the most obvious matchups of the year; go NE over Arizona.

If you want to try something super-sneaky just for pride purposes, I might go with Miami over Oakland. Miami shut down Foster pretty good last week, I still don't trust Palmer throwing the ball. Also it's an early game with a west-coast team making the long flight east. I coudl see this being an ugly win for the 'Phins, something like 13-7.
