Survivor, straight up picks for Week 14 NFL action

We’ve got all the strategy you need to make it through the 14th week of a Survivor pool.

Welcome to Week 14 of the 2018 NFL season! The San Francisco 49ers are back home facing the Denver Broncos this Sunday, but in the meantime, we get started with a Thursday Night Football contest that is now nearly as interesting as it was when first scheduled as the Tennessee Titans host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The 49ers are currently a 5.5-point underdog to the Broncos, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. Nobody will be taking the 49ers as a Survivor pick, but what about the Broncos? If the 49ers have Marquise Goodwin back in action, that makes for an intriguing possibility in the deep game. The Broncos defense is a tall order, and without Matt Breida, this is going to be a tough one.

If you’re still alive in your Survivor pool, there are some interesting options. The Chargers host an awful Bengals team, and I like the Texans at home over the Colts. If you haven’t used the Steelers yet, picking them over the Raiders is not the worst idea.

This week gets started with the Titans hosting the Jaguars on TNF. Tennessee is a four-point home favorite, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. I’m taking the points as I like what the return of Leonard Fournette from his one-game suspension means for Jacksonville.

Here are all my straight-up picks for Week 12. I was 9-7 last week, bringing my season record to 120-69-2. I’ll have the rest of my picks against the spread later this weekend.
