2017 NFL Survivor Week 17: Top Five Options
- New England Patriots (vs. Jets)
The Patriots are always an easy pick if you've happened to save them.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Browns)
There's no need to save any team any longer, as it's Week 17. The Steelers are a guarantee.
- Minnesota Vikings (vs. Bears)
The Vikings have something to play for because they could lose the No. 2 seed to the Panthers. They should do well against Mitchell Trubisky at home.
- Baltimore Ravens (vs. Bengals)
The Ravens should be able to beat the Bengals, though they'll be risky if Vontaze Burfict plays.
- Tennessee Titans (vs. Jaguars)
The Titans aren't really my fifth choice, but they're my favorite team that I still have available. The Jaguars are locked into the No. 3 seed, so they could be sitting their starters.

2017 NFL Survivor Week 17: Trap of the Week
Denver Broncos (vs. Chiefs)
The Chiefs are locked into the fourth seed. They'll be resting their starters. Denver is favored by 3.5 points. Some might think about taking the Broncos, but I would not do that, as I'm not convinced their starters are better than the Chiefs' reserves. I actually have Kansas City winning on my NFL Picks page.
