Buffalo is a London gameedmunddantes said:I've used Mia, Pit, NE, Sea, Atl, and GB.
I'm leaning towards the Chargers.
Stl scares me cause they (and Fisher) have a remarkable record for playing down to the competition.
I don't like Indy yet as I can't figure them out or NO who they are playing against.
Buffalo is an away game.
And Carolina is going up against a hard to pin down Phi team.
Poulsonator said:Yea ARI for me this week as well. BAL is complete garbage and is on the road. ARI will be pissed about last week and should roll.

Adding to this, the Ravens have also already traveled to Denver, Oakland, and SF, and are making another long haul out to Arizona.
Stitch01 said:Bills are a fine pick too I think. Only team Im really going to avoid this week is Arizona because it looks like they are by far the highest picked team and I don't think they are that much better than the other options.
I know you are all over STL but I just wanted to say that I think people underestimate how much talent CLE has. They definitely have playmakers at the skill positions (Benjamin, Johnson, Barnidge, Crowell, etc.) and, as this article states, they may be able to move the ball against STL.Stitch01 said:SL is my pick, I like them more than Buffalo, but Buffalo seems defensible to me if you just want to be off Arizona for whatever reason. FO had them as the 4th most likely team to win this week.
On yahoo 40% of the field is on Arizona, 15% are on the Bills, 15% on Atlanta, only 4% on SL. SurvivorGrid has SL as higher EV (NE is highest EV, which is counterintuitive, then Seattle which is a good pick but not available to me personally) Im willing to take the extra risk of avoiding Arizona given those ownership levels given the pools Im in are already pretty beat up with 95%+ of people gone, but are big enough we aren't down to like 2 people. Your point about schedule is certainly a valid point against that strategy though.
wade boggs chicken dinner said:Just looking at Point differentials, the gap between AZ and BAL is the biggest of the week (107). SEA v SF was just behind at 105. One thing about BAL - I've never seen a team that can run and stop the run as well as BAL can be so bad.
I'm in a similar spot. I've got the Saints, Pats, Bengals and Broncos all at my disposal still. My brain says to take the Pats this week but I can't stop looking at the Saints match-up and thinking about taking them instead.PaulinMyrBch said:Boring week, 2 players left, we both took Rams.
I'm leaning New Orleans at home against Tennessee, Mariota is back, but Whisenhunt is out, so turmoil no the road. The other game would be Bengals at home against Cleveland.
I've still got Bengals, Denver, Carolina unused and they all look to have good matchups the next 2-3 weeks, so it would be a good time to use the Saints.
