2020 NFL Survivor Pool Stories After Week 10
There were tons of amazing games from Week 10 of the NFL season, and we’re back with another breakdown of all the week’s action and how it impacted our Nitro NFL Survivor Pool landscape, which is slowly developing into a tight race already heading into the final seven weeks of the season.
As always, do be reminded that rescheduled games might occur throughout the regular season that’s still dealing with the global pandemic, and this could leave a huge impact on survivor strategies for every survivor participant involved. That being said, we still highly encourage all players to know what will happen to our survivor pools in the event of future cancelled or postponed games by reading up on the subject.
And with that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at the data for our Survivor Pools after 10 weeks of football, as well as our takeaways from all the action this past week:

Survivor Alpha Packs
Week 10 was relatively quiet on the elimination front, as no more than 30 players were eliminated from survivor contention across all nine of our pools.
In fact, every survivor from Week 9 went unscathed this week over at the Hall of Famer pool, which still has 37 players in the thick of the contest. Furthermore, 136 out of the 138 players at the Rookie Pool made it out of Week 10, while only three players from each of our All Pro and MVP pools were eliminated.
A great majority of this week’s survivors have Aaron Rodgers and the gang from Lambeau to thank, as approximately half of the survivors picked the Packers to win their favorable matchup against the Jaguars. This marks another playoff contender having been selected in our survivor campaigns, and the field of elite teams such as Green Bay is becoming more and more limited by the week.
Homestands in the Home Stretch
Home teams took advantage of playing on their own turf in Week 10, with nine of the 12 home teams emerging victorious. Although, six of those games were decided by a single scoring possession.
Will the hosts of Week 11 contests have similar luck defending their backyards? We’d argue that this won’t be the case. The upcoming week will have several coin-toss matchups between middling teams, and several road favorites such as the Steelers at Jacksonville, the Chiefs at Vegas and the aforementioned Packers at Indianapolis.

Some games to look forward to in Week 11
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Washington Football Team
A couple of two-win teams will be pitted up against one another this week, offering survivors an intriguing option for either side of these two middling franchises. At this point, the top 10 teams in most people’s eyes have likely been selected in the first 10 weeks of their survivor campaign, leaving fewer and fewer options that will keep their survivor streaks alive.
The Bengals and the Football Team are far from the prettiest girls at the ball, but you could really do worse than either of them given the other matchups on the Week 11 slate. Washington is on a two-game skid, but two of the team’s last three losses were each decided by three points or less. Cincinnati, meanwhile, were just manhandled by the Steelers and failed to capitalize on their massive victory over Tennessee in Week 9.
Miami Dolphins vs. Denver Broncos
We featured the Dolphins in this section just last week, and their 29-21 win over the Chargers from Week 10 should further reinforce the notion that the ‘Fins are worthy of a survivor pick sooner than later.
We’ll continue the trend of putting up Miami’s games as a viable survivor-related matchup for as long as the competition is at their level. This week is no exception, as the Dolphins will take on the 3-6 Broncos at Mile High. On the inverse, Denver’s backers could also see this game as a must-win game for the team to stay in the division hunt. Not only that, but it’ll also be interesting to see if Tua Tagovailoa can handle the harsh weather and altitude that works in favor of the home team.
