Top 5 Pick ‘Em
Minnesota -5.5 (vs. Houston) – The Vikings continue to prove that they are legitimate. The 3rd-ranked defense wIll keep the Texans offense and Brock Osweiler under control.
Philadelphia -3 (@ Detroit) – The Eagles are coming off a bye and bringing the 4th-ranked offense and 2nd-ranked defense to Detroit. The Lions, on the other hand, have the worst defense in the league.
Denver -6 (vs. Atlanta) – Matt Ryan and the Falcons have been flying high the past two weeks. Traveling to Denver to face a top-5 defense will bring them back down to earth.
Buffalo +2.5 (@ Loas Angeles) – Case Keenum has just as many turnovers as he does touchdowns through the first four weeks. Rex Ryan and the Bills will be able to keep the leagues 31st-worst offense in check.
Carolina -6 (vs. Tampa Bay) – No one expected the Panthers to win 15 games again, but 1-3 is a surprising start. Cam Newton faced two of the toughest defenses thus far and Monday night is a must-win game to keep the season alive.
Top Survivor Pick
New England (@ Cleveland) – Welcome back, Tom Brady. An overwhelmingly popular pick this week at 60%, but for a reason.
Minnesota (vs. Houston) – See above. If you need an alternate.
Indianapolis (vs. Chicago) – The Colts have no business being the 3rd-most popular pick in any week. Their offense is ranked in the bottom half of the league and their defense is scraping the bottom at 30th.
