The favorites may not have gone 16-0 in Week 3 like they did in Week 2, but thanks to an easy Indianapolis Colts win over the New York Jets, not too many people were eliminated from their survivor pools.

Here are The Duel's survivor pool picks for Week 4.

3. Seattle Seahawks at Miami Dolphins, Sunday 1pm

The next two teams should be incredibly popular this week, meaning we can look for a slightly more contrarian pick in the No. 3 spot. The Seattle Seahawks have been incredible through three weeks, while the Miami Dolphins have looked a lot like they did in 2019. Miami ranks dead-last in Football Outsider's defensive DVOA rankings, and Russell Wilson is the frontrunner to win the NFL MVP award in 2020. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Seahawks as healthy 6.5-point road favorites here.

2. Baltimore Ravens at Washington Football Team, Sunday 1pm

The week's biggest favorite, the Baltimore Ravens are the closest thing to a lock we have this week as they take on the lowly Washington Football Team, but survivor strategy keeps them out of the top spot this week. The team ahead of them is favored by just about as much as the Ravens are, and Baltimore is one of the best teams in the NFL. You'll get plenty of chances to choose them (if you haven't already), including in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals and Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Ravens are a safe pick, but you may be better off saving them for later in the year.

1. Los Angeles Rams vs New York Giants, Sunday 4pm

Favored by just half a point less than the Ravens (12.5 as of writing), the Los Angeles Rams are playing at home against the New York Giants. The Giants are Pro Football Focus' 25th-ranked team on the year, while the Los Angeles Rams check in at No. 7. The Rams also get a great matchup next week (against Washington), but if this ends up being a chalky year with many players surviving deep into the season, you'd rather still have the Ravens in your back pocket than the Rams.
