Here at Pigskin Daily, we will give you our best bet for survivor pools each week. Having won our survivor pool last year, we believe players can benefit from our insights every week.
Last week, players who chose our pick easily advanced to week 8. New Orleans beat Chicago, which we expected.
Onto week 9
This is one of the toughest weeks of the year. We have already chosen the heavy favorites like the Eagles and New Orleans and Seattle. We were going to choose Houston in this spot but with Deshaun Watson’s injury, we cannot pull the plug.
That leaves us with one choice :
Week 9 NFL survivor pick : Jacksonville Jaguars
I don’t think we’ve ever picked the Jaguars as a survivor pick. There’s always a first for everything.
The reason is simple : The Jags defense. They will overpower Andy Dalton and the Bengals offense.
This game should be a close one but we like the Jaguars to win.
