Of the 24,788 people playing, I am one of 2,890 that are still in at this point. I don’t think I’ve ever made it this far.
In bold are the teams I have left to choose from NYJ at IND(-10.5) ATL at NO(-6) DEN at DAL(-10) NE(-4) at CAR
MIN at BAL(-5.5)
CLE(-2.5) at CIN
BUF(-14.5) at JAC HOU at MIA(-6.5) LV(-3) at NYG LAC(-1.5) at PHI TEN at LAR(-7.5) CHI at PIT(-6.5)
Currently, my pick is Miami over Houston.
I had considered Baltimore over Minnesota. That seems like a no-brainer, but maybe the Vikings can pull a rabbit out of their hat.
Maybe I should make like a Debbie cake and do Dallas, but I think they & their new qb got lucky against MIN.
Trying to remember if Von Miller is eligible to play in this weekend’s game for the Rams . . . if so, you might take them over the Titans . . . exspecially given the status of Henry for the Titans . . .
You have some decent teams left. I would go Dallas this week with Pittsburgh as second choice. The Vikes can always play well. I would not trust Miami even against Houston.
Pittsburgh has Detroit next week at home. TN has Houston in Week 11. All 3 of these teams has tough match up Week 12 (Thanksgiving). As I look through that week, that will be the challenge. LV looks good for 13 (WFT), Chargers 14 (NYG), AZ if you have (Det), Miami (NYJ), Jax (Hou) or SF (Atl) in 15, Atl (Det) or NO (Mia) in 16, Sea (Det) or SF (Hou) in 17 and TN (@Hou - may have playoffs on line), GB (@Det) or NYG (WFT) in 18. I feel Week 12 will thin the herd.
At this stage of the season, I would write “NO”. You can only win if you survive and saving a team can backfire if injuries occur at the wrong time. If you do it early on to gain an advantage over a larger number of players, I understand. Once 85% of the players is gone, let them be clever and take longer odds.
