Best Week 7 NFL survivor pool picks

By Adam Burke  ( 


Survivor sweats were few and far between in Week 6, as the big favorites mostly won with ease and the majority of contestants lived to fight another day.

Dallas was my pick in Week 6, so it was an unnecessary struggle with the Colts on the board, but the Cowboys got there. Through six weeks, my picks have been the Rams, Packers, Broncos, Bengals, Ravens and Cowboys. The “Games to Consider” went 3-0 last week and sit at 16-3 for the season.

Week 7 does not feature difficult decisions for survivor players. The most difficult decision for most will be which double-digit favorite to take. There are three and there could be a fourth, depending on how the line goes between Washington and Green Bay.

Sometimes you run into weeks like this and it feels pretty good to have multiple options, but this is when you really have to consider that season-long blueprint and decide which one makes the most sense going forward. I’ve mentioned that the core concept of this type of contest is to go 1-0 every week, but you should also be positioning yourself for as many 1-0 weeks as possible.

The latter is at the forefront in Week 7.
