2017 NFL Survivor Week 12: Top Five Options
- New England Patriots (vs. Dolphins)
If you have the Patriots available, enjoy your bye week.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. Packers)
If you have the Steelers available, enjoy your bye week.
- Philadelphia Eagles (vs. Bears)
If you have the Eagles available, enjoy your bye week.
- Baltimore Ravens (vs. Texans)
If you don't have one of the three bye teams this week, the Ravens are a fine pick. Their dominant defense should clamp down on Tom Savage Knuckleblade.
- Cincinnati Bengals (vs. Browns)
Fading DeShone Kizer seems like a great decision.

2017 NFL Survivor Week 12: Trap of the Week
Kansas City Chiefs (vs. Bills)
The Chiefs are a double-digit favorite, so you might be surprised to see them as the trap pick. I wouldn't take them, however. They've struggled lately, and the Bills, assuming they start Tyrod Taylor, are a live dog. I love them this week, and you can read more on my NFL Picks page.
