I have two rules in survivor pools. No road teams, no division games. If I can help it no Thursday games. My only reasonable options left at this point were NO or Colts with their third QB against Miami. I broke my own rule, trusted Brees, and it cost me.
Wouldn't have mattered. Colts lost too. We had 4 people left in our survivor pool. (I wasn't one....went out on the Rams losing to TB earlier) Three of them took NO, the other took Indy. I usually follow those same rules with the exception of Thursday games. The home team has such a huge advantage sometimes you can find good value there. Example, a couple of years ago when the Ravens crushed Miami on Thursday.
