Had a close one last week with Indy. 

Can anyone help me with Week 2? There are some tempting ones, but I can't narrow it down.

Looking at OAK, GB, CHI and CIN. All home teams either coming off losses or playing opponents with a lot of uncertainty.

My ranking of survivor option


1) Pats (used them on one of my spots)
2) Ravens (used them on my other spot)
3) Texans 
4) Bears

Don't take the Raiders. They are a bottom 3 team at home to another bottom 3 team. Not worth it to take such a risk, especially in Week 2.

Don't take the Packers. Yea they could definitely win. But the Redskins were last year's NFC East champs for a reason. It isn't wise to use a spot against a playoff team in Week 2.

The Bengals should win but again who knows. The Steelers aren't as bad as they looked last week.

If I'm you I go with the Ravens.

The Steelers aren't as bad as they looked. Your'e right. They are WORSE!!!

That being said, go with the Bears. They have less future value than Cincy or Houston.

I know the Ravens should beat Cleveland, but I don't trust their team yet. While they are struggling to find a new identity, they are going to be susceptible to trap games. Hungry for their first home game and first win, they should get it here. I just don't feel confident.

I have Oakland up there, because I can't help the daringness of the pick. I probably will avoid that, though.

I think Bears against Ponder-on-grass may be the way to go. 

Thanks guys.

Couple of things of note on bears game.

Showers in the forecast at game time and Illinois just played at soldier today. That field is the worst in football and could be dicey. AP has proven he can run on the bears as well. If Bears don't get huge TOs last week Cincy might of rolled. Only second game in new offensive system.

I think they win too just throwing out some of my concerns.

Any reason not to love the texans?

The Texans looked shaky in the first half against the Chargers. Who is the real Texan team?

The first half of the first game of the season. RELAXXX fella. I would go ahead and take my chances on the Texans in a survivor pool. There are no guarantees, but what do you want? Come on.

Welp, I guess the real Texan team was the one that showed in the first half of the Charger game. I guess I'm not so wrong to worry about them. eh?

SURVIVOR   WEEK 3

MY CONTEST STARTED WITH 407 PEOPLE 129 KNOCKED OUT AFTER 2 WEEKS. 278 PEOPLE STILL ALIVE  AND IT LOOKS LIKE SEATTLE GOING TO BE A VERY VERY BIG PLAY THIS WEEK. WEEK 4 LOOKS REALLY REALLY HARD.
