Made it to Week 15! Survivor League help please
Well, that's 2 weeks in a row now where all 6 of us advanced. The stakes have made every Sunday incredibly stressful. From Patriots almost blowing it to Houston the week before to Ravens/Vikings scoring FIVE touchdowns in the final 2:07 on Sunday...
3 of us got lucky with the Ravens (almost had a heart attack). 1 guy got lucky with Patriots over Browns on an onside kick and phantom pass interference call in the endzone. 2 easily picked Denver over Titans.
This week, I'm the only one left who has Carolina left and they play Jets at home. After the embarrassment last night in New Orleans, I think Carolina gets focused and bounces back. Their defense should be too strong for Geno Smith to handle. #1 rush defense and #5 pass defense... #2 overall defense. Jets have a stout rush defense themselves, but this game is home in Carolina (6-1) and they play well at home while the Jets (1-6) play poorly on the road. Jets looked good at home against the Raiders but I'm not sure how much weight to put on that. They lost 3 straight before that in blowouts (@buffalo, @baltimore, vsMiami)
3 other guys can choose Kansas City this week @ Oakland. They should easily win, but it's still a road game. I prefer to avoid this game since 3 others will be using them (I'm just assuming because it's the only other game in Week 15 that is as obvious as a NFL game can get). IF the Raiders do win, it would put me in prime position! (or I could just be the only idiot eliminated ugh)
Not sure what the 2 other guys will do. They don't have Carolina or KC to use... I guess one could use Denver at home vs Chargers? Gross...
I put so much thought into these every week, but I know every week will be close and come down to the final few minutes. It's been brutal! I hope Carolina pounces on them early. Jets are a bit unpredictable but on the road vs a tough/physical team that just got embarrassed... they are going to jump on the rookie Geno hard.
For what it's worth:
Week 16: I'm doing Bengals at home vs Vikings. Everyone has Bengals left though so I'm assuming everyone is using them this week. There's really no other smart game to choose.
Week 17: Either Steelers home vs Browns or Miami home vs Jets... Stressful
