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.

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.

8
NEvMIA
-->DENvWAS
SF@JAC
SEA@STL
GB@MIN

9
GBvCHI
SEAvTB
-->NEvPIT
DALvMIN

10
-->TENvJAC
GBvPHI
SEA@ATL

11
SEAvMIN


12
HOUvJAC
DETvTB

13
DALvOAK
SFvSTL
BALvPIT

14
BALvMIN
GBvATL

----------

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.

My entire league including myself except for two guys took TEN, one took NYG (won) and the other took INDY (losing). Looks like it's over. ****

we'll have to see how popularity shakes down. I have the Bengals still available but I expect them to be stupidly popular, just like Dallas/Tennessee were the last two week.

The new trend is that whomever I get a big bet in on, the start QB goes down.

Ugh. Had Seattle next week in that pool too....

Bears and Chefs put out almost a quarter of Yahoo leagues. Pretty solid first week.

Lots of high future value teams at the top of the spreads this week. Not expecting a ton of knockouts, but expecting a lot of people to burn some of the heavy favorites.

I'm curious to see how many wind up on Tennessee this weekend because I don't think Dallas is as bad as they looked yesterday.

I got my hopes up that PHI was going to lose

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.

I like TB (vSTL), HOU (@OAK) and WAS (vJAC) this week, but it's still early.

Thoughts?

Using the Packers and feeling pretty fine about it tbh, their schedule doesn't have that many pillows anyway (home games of divisional games, Patriots, falcons, panthers, eagles)
