After Weeks 9 and 10 brought what felt like more upsets than we've seen all year, most NFL Survivor pools have been whittled down to their last few players. That means the stakes are high, and you can't afford any mistakes.

The Duel is here to help in Week 11 with our top three survivor pool picks.

NFL Survivor Week 11 Picks

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs NYG)

The best reason not to pick the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week is that you can't because you've already picked them. A hiccup against the Washington Football Team in Week 10 should not scare you off, especially when they come back as Week 11's biggest favorites (11 points on FanDuel Sportsbook) against the New York Giants, who Pro Football Focus has graded out as the fifth worst team in the NFL.

2. Tennessee Titans (vs HOU)

One of the few teams below the Giants, PFF has the Houston Texans as the NFL's worst squad. They rank dead-last in offense and 28th in defense. The Tennessee Titans don't seem to be missing Derrick Henry too much, beating the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints without him, and the Texans should not give them much trouble either.

1. Cleveland Browns (vs DET)

The Cleveland Browns also looked bad last week, and there's some uncertainty around Baker Mayfield's health. The Browns are still huge 10-point favorites though, which is a pretty good sign that Vegas expects Mayfield to be just fine. The Lions may have managed to hold the Mason Rudolph-led Pittsburgh Steelers to a 16-point tie last week, but they've still yet to win a game. Picking against the Lions has been an easy strategy all year, and that doesn't change in Week 11.
