Survivor Week 1

Postby waynesworld1234 » Mon Sep 02, 2019 11:13 am

Not so much dynasty, but I’ve seen it here before. Please delete/move if needed.

What’s the general consensus week 1? I have 2 picks and am thinking Chargers at home against Indy and Seahawks at home against Cincy.

For those that have multiple picks - how comfortable do you have to be to use the same time for each pick?

I have Seattle over Cincy. Although I don't normally pick a road team--I have Ravens over Fins as my second choice--I just can't see Miami putting up the horses to beat Baltimore--

1st weeks are always scary. I'd go with a proven home field advantage and take Seattle.
QB- R. Wilson, Garoppolo, Lock, Rudolph, Driskel
RB- Coleman, R. Jones, L. Murray, Guice, Hyde
WR- Golladay, Edelman, Metcalf, Bourne
TE- Kelce, Kittle
K- Lutz
Def- Baltimore, Pittsburgh





No PPR, Start 2 QBs, 2 RBS, 2 WRS, 1 TE, 1 FLEX,1 K, 1 DEF/ST. 6 pts all touchdowns
2002 Points Champion, 2007 HTH Champion, 2014 HTH Champion

Seattle will most likely be the chalk pick and the one I will roll with. But I could see taking Baltimore and also Philly hosting the Skins.

Seattle at home vs Cincy is the top pick.

One I'm very tempted by, but is probably too risky is Detroit @ Arizona. There probably won't be a lot of good weeks to use Detroit, and this would save better teams for later. Week 1 on the road against a potentially dangerous overhauled offense is a bit too risky though.

I did Cincy, Philly, and Chargers on my 3 contests. I am thinking one loses for sure, so diversifying.

I decided to go with Seattle and Baltimore.

Don't pick the Lions. Never bet on the Lions. Especially on Thanksgiving. You'll thank me later.

Seahawks will be the chalk, but I feel as confident (if not more) taking Baltimore. That defense was going to eat Fitzmagic, now without Tunsil...Fitz might not make it out alive.

Feels like a pretty safe pivot from a 60%+ owned chalk pick...then root on Cincy to pull off the road upset :)

Only problem is it's in Miami, and sometimes teams really struggle in Miami early in the season due to the heat. Week 1 is just such an unknown someetimes, you really want to go with a home team.

Nope, I have all the faith in road Dalton!!!! Yeah, I meant Seattle of course.

Very valid point and definitely a worthy consideration!

That's probably the only sliver of hope for Miami. My eggs are all in on Baltimore, but I fault nobody on eating chalk this week.

Baltimore is still the 3rd most popular choice I think, and I am fairly confident they do in fact win. But week 1 you want to be as risk averse as possible and Seattle at home vs Cincy is a very strong bet.

Eagles over Washington at home, Seattle over Cincinnati at home, and Baltimore over Miami on the road ...this is my top 3
