why should you never HAVE to use a bottom team. what if that bottom team is playing a far worse team? stop making hard opinion-based rules that don't make sense and don't take any math into account

I'm having a hard time seeing Green Bay lose. Me personally my rankings this week were:

1. Ravens
2. Packers
3. Giants


I don't trust Denver vs Charles. I think if KC can get Charles going in the passing game the game will be close coming to the 4th quarter.

It's the NFL, the disparity between bad teams is pretty minimal. If you are stuck using one of those teams you've planned like ****.

The Giants are a 6-7 win team and the Cardinals are a good team. Why in world would giants be on your radar?

I don't know where your looking, they're like the 4th favorite this week. Patriots are gonna get over 50% this week, problem is I don't see another week where they will be favorite by 7+.

Pats will be the team most likely to win in weeks 3, 7 and 8.

SurvivorGrid has

NE -14
NO -11
PHI -8.5
CIN -6.5
SEA -5.5
STL -5
ATL -4.5

There were a couple other lines higher than Atlanta's when I checked last night.

If moneylines from Pinnacle are available, go ahead and post them THAKID.

You need to stop blindly following what that site says. There is zero chance pats are a 10 point favorite against the Jets.

Probably going with Saints this week.

Why don't you show us what you use to determine future value, or is that not something you consider when making survivor picks?
