This week’s survivor look is Blue Steel

0


Twenty-five percent of survivor entries were saved in Week 5 by game-ending scores from the Vikings and Ravens, and another 18% survived thanks to the Patriots mounting a comeback in Houston. That’s 43% who were teetering on the brink of elimination but lived to fight another day.

Week 6 may provide us with an even bigger sweat, as 80% of entries so far are concentrated on just three teams and only one of them is a double-digit favorite. Before we jump into our pool picks, let’s take a look at how we did last week:

Week 5 picks

Best Bets: 1-0 (YTD: 9-2)

Leans: 1-0 (YTD: 5-1)

Traps to avoid: 1 elimination avoided (YTD: 6)

On to the Week 6 picks!

BEST BETS

The Seahawks suffered a tough break losing QB Russell Wilson for 6-8 weeks. Subbing in will be none other than Geno Smith, who sports a 12-19 record as a starter. The understudy’s first leading performance as a Seahawk will be on the road in primetime. 

Seattle was already a shaky team when they had one of the best quarterbacks in the league under center. Do we expect Smith to turn that around against one of the better defenses? Speaking of which, the Seahawks defense ranks in the bottom seven in both yards per carry and yards per passing attempt. If the Steelers can put up nearly 400 yards of offense versus the Broncos, I’ll take my chances with them against a lesser Seattle defense.

I like this play because only 3% of entries are on Pittsburgh and their future value lies mainly in a Week 10 home game against the Lions.

After a three-game road trip, the Colts are returning home to take on the lowly Texans. Quarterback Carson Wentz just threw for a career-high 402 yards against Baltimore and has completed 73.1% of his passes over the last two weeks. Even though they’re 1-4, Indy could just as easily be above .500 and they outmatch Houston all over the field. If the Colts continue feeding the ball to Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman Jr. and play halfway-decent defense, they’ll exit with a win they can…
