NFL Week 11 has revived the tried-and-true Survivor strategy of fading the Jets. That’s because 0-9 New York visits the Chargers, a team almost no Survivor player has used. But is L.A. the optimal play for your knockout pool picks?
The SportsLine Projection Model continues to crush this format, nailing its Survivor pick in all 10 weeks. Based on which available team was winning the most simulations, the model supported Kansas City in Week 1, followed by Tennessee, Indianapolis, the Rams, Baltimore, Miami, Buffalo, Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Green Bay last week (beat Jacksonville, 24-20).
With those 10 teams off the table, the model has settled on an extremely strong Week 11 pick. You’ll want to see it, too, given the model’s record.
This model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,800 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception five-plus years ago. It also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch three of the past four years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports office pool players three times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Week 11, the model is passing on the Chargers even though they’re winning over 70 percent of simulations against the winless Jets. Los Angeles isn’t much better at 2-7, and coach Anthony Lynn’s tentative approach means the Chargers could get into another nailbiter.
Moreover, Jets quarterback Joe Flacco is coming off a strong performance: He threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns against one interception in New York’s 30-27 loss to New England in Week 9. The Jets have been resting since then, and they know this is their best chance left for a win.
Instead, the model is backing another cellar-dwelling team! This team remains under the radar but is poised for a dominant win. Picking this team not only will get you to Week 12, it will put you in the optimal position to go deeper in your NFL survivor pool.
You ABSOLUTELY need to see which team the model is backing before locking in your NFL survivor picks!
