PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 17

Top 5 Pick ‘Em

Season record: 41-39

New York Jets +14.5 (@ New England) – 14 points is a huge spread for the Patriots to cover against anyone this season. Tom Brady looks like a 41 year old quarterback and Rob Gronkowski is all but obsolete.

Los Angeles Rams -10 (vs. San Francisco) – The Rams can secure a first round bye with a win this weekend. Dante Pettis was the most recent bright spot for the 49ers and he will be out for Week 17.

Chicago +6 (@ Minnesota) – The Bears have covered all but one spread in their last nine games and they still have an outside shot at a first round bye. This will be a low scoring game and the Bears beat the Vikings a couple weeks ago by five points.

Los Angeles Chargers -6.5 (@ Denver) – Phillip Lindsay was the best part of the Broncos offense this year and will be out for Week 17 with a wrist injury. That leaves Case Keenum a bunch of rookies against a team that has won 10 of their last 12 games.

Green Bay -7.5 (vs. Detroit) – Aaron Rodgers is alive! The Packers should make easy work of the Lions. While there aren’t any playoff implications in this game, the pride of the Packers will prevail.

Top Survivor Picks

Pittsburgh (vs. Cincinnati) – The Steelers need to win in order to guarantee themselves a playoff spot.

Buffalo (vs. Miami) – If you are desperate, the Bills at home versus the Dolphins are a good matchup. Josh Allen and the Bills defense will control the game.

Survivor Avoid

Houston (vs. Jacksonville) –The Texans will be without Lamar Miller and Demaryius Thomas this week. They are also the third most popular pick.
