    It’s week 1, there’s lots of parity & change in the Nfl year to year, the only team I keep track of though the offseason is the pack.

    I’ll open with the Packers for lack of confidence to choose any other team in week 1.

    Packers win vs the bears

    Saints. (Although I won't be heartbroken if they lose and I'm bounced early)

    Agree and I don't see many chances to pick the Lions later this season. My theory is to always pick the loser lesser teams when you get the chance.

    Well the Lions could start 8-0 and then they are no longer the "lesser" team ;) Not to give my strategy too much away, but do we really know who those teams are yet? As we saw last year, an injury can all of a sudden turn a Powerhouse into an Outhouse.

    Not really but I am fairly certain the Jets will be picking top 5 this next off season.

    Probably #2 behind the Packers first pick in the draft from the Saints. ;)

    I normally only care about 3 winners but I have added a 4th this year, of course if there is playoff considerations, I may actually pull for one of these teams to win:
    1. Packers
    2. Whoever plays the Vikings
    3. Whoever plays the Bears
    4. Whoever plays the Saints...this is being moved up to #2 this year :)

    There are two schools of thought on survivor games.

    Player A will take the surest bets they can find each week that are still available to them and hope that other players try to get cute and end up losing out before Player A exhausts his good options.

    Player B will take the worst team he can find that he still feels good about winning each week so that the powerhouses are still available later in the season.

    I think the first approach will get you farther on average, but the second will win the whole thing more often.

    Count me in for being Player C :cool:

    My point was while we would like to assume that teams are the same teams that they were in 2017, we all know a new season is just that and the teams will realign themselves to some extent. Right now picking the Powerhouses VS the Doormats is mostly based on last year and how a team "should do" with their off season moves. But until we really see what level a team is now at, the first few weeks are a crap shoot. I only know this from playing the Parlay Cards....I tried to always avoid the temptation of playing in weeks 1-2.
