Atl is definitely the safest pick. But I don't think it's the most profitable pick.
My pool has 10 remaining, maybe less after Pittsburgh lost, but I won't know who, if any, picked them until after the deadline passes tomorrow at 1.
I expect 4-6 people in my pool will be on Atlanta.
It's riskier, but ultimately more profitable to differentiate and go with one of Ari, TB, Mia imo. San Fran is an excellent option as well but I've already taken them.
Not taking Atlanta has a few benefits:
1) Gives you a chance to eliminate roughly half your pool.
2) Lets you save Atl for future weeks.
BUT they are easily the safest pick.
In general I am a risk taker and will steer away from the popular pick if there's other relatively safe options so I can increase my equity. Just not sure how I feel about the other teams right now.
My pick is currently on ATL. My mind is telling me to pick someone else, probably TB or Ari, but my heart and my babyness is telling me to stay on Atl.
I think if I wasn't eliminated in my other pool last week I'd probably pick TB in one and Ari in the other this week.
I'm trying to convince myself to change my pick, but can't do it yet. Will think about it some more and report back before 1est tomorrow.
