Think I'm going TEN in one pool and NYG in the other.
My available teams are way different from the remaining 3 entries in the league I'm going to pick TEN so separating myself is somewhat less valuable. I have huge separation all remaining weeks and think Titans are a stone cold pipe.
I don't know how you can say you wouldn't feel comfortable picking NE against anyone in the future. I'll take NE vMIA, vCLE, vPIT and vBUF and not think twice about it.
Easy money. Won and covered in first 2. Little reason to think they won't cover 4/4 unless the lines go haywire. ML should be good all the way.

So, for the above (non-2p2, FWIW) pool, my plan through 14 looks something like this. List would be in order of descending preference for the week.
To flip the conversation a little, how do you pick teams to gain separation? Are you simply looking to pick the least popular team you feel comfortable with?
I hope this doesn't come off as contentious, BTW. I do think separation has value and will shade some picks based on what I think others in my pool will do, but until you get down to just a few opponents, it's difficult to guess where they're going to be. In the above pool, I am fortunate that most of their lines are pretty similar and I have some built in separation. Since their picks don't actually affect my ability to pick winners every week though, I think it makes more sense to focus on my winning rather than what they're doing.
Bumping for updates and reordered preferences. Also, never saw a response to the bottom.
Don't even get me started! Down 0-17 at half and Jags end up doing exactly nothing the entire 2nd half while 35-50% of 7 different survival pools I'm in were on them. Y'all better count ur blessings if you had PHIL hah.
