Considering you can only play each team once
 and I would rarely play a road team unless I have to.....

Without burning up the elite teams right away such as  NE-GB-Philly-NO-
i would venture to say the  right team to play this week  is Chicago.  gl

Only 3 real options:

Chi, Hou and Det

They are all good teams, at home; playing a shitty team, on the road. Plus, they are all non-division games.

In order of confidence:

Det, Hou, Chi.

Thanks vetdrm, same idea over here, I want to pick not one of the elite teams to use them in the middle of the season.  

Thanks Yavapai.

Chicago, Houston, or New Orleans.  I wouldn't trust the Detroit defense just yet

I usually like to use home teams but I believe Philly is the right pick for a few reasons.

1. Their home schedule and overall schedule is brutal. @ Cleveland wk 1 and @ wk 3 Arizona look like the 2 easiest games on their schedule. Their home games are vs Baltimore, NYG, Detroit, Atlanta, Dallas, Carolina, Cinci, and Washington. I don't see a easy game at all @ home..... or at least  not until late in the season. The pool may be done by then.

2. Cleveland is real bad. Starting a rookie QB, #1  rookie RB coming off knee surgery, and Joe Haden possibly serving suspension.

3. Most importantly, how long will Vick last? he could be out by week 2..... then Philly is a sub .500 team. I'm not sure they are a playoff team anyway.

Their easiest game is week 1 and they are as healthy as they are going to get.

I've won some survivor pools in the past and I always just went with what I thought was the safest play on the board.  I found trying to save teams for later resulted in there not being a later.  With that said I would go Chicago or Houston.

I agree,use the good teams as you can,saving is pointless if your out. The object is to survive,remember.

also i agree with using philly now while their healthy and games get tough for them.Hell i'm taking em laying 8.5 in my ats contest.
