If you're still reading the story in Week 13, you've been dominating your NFL survivor pool this season, and you're probably one of a select few players remaining. You're probably also running thin on good teams to pick, making every week trickier than the last.

The Duel is here to help in Week 13 with our top three survivor pool picks.

NFL Survivor Week 13 Picks

3. Los Angeles Rams

Listed at No. 3 just because so many people will have picked them already, you absolutely want to pick the Los Angeles Rams this week if you can. Despite this recent losing skid they're still one of the best teams in football, and in Week 13 they're up against one of the worst. FanDuel Sportsbook has the Rams as massive 13-point favorites over the Jacksonville Jaguars, while nobody else this week is bigger than a 10.5-point favorite. Don't over-think this.

2. Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are a team you're more likely to have available, and taking on the New York Jets makes them mighty enticing. The Jets did secure a win in Week 12, but Zach Wilson was abysmal in his return. Going 14-of-24 for 145 yards with 0 TDs and a pick is bad against any team, but it's especially egregious against the Houston Texans. The Eagles are coming off a disappointing game of their own, but as long as Jalen Hurts' injury status is cleared up, this should be an easy bounce-back spot.

1. Minnesota Vikings

Missing Dalvin Cook could hurt the Minnesota Vikings' offense, but that's really not a concern this week. "Pick the team against the Detroit Lions" continues to be one of the best strategies for survivor this year, and Week 13 promises to be more of the same. Even with Jared Goff back, the Lions couldn't hold off the Andy Dalton-led Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving. The Vikings rank eight spots ahead of the Bears in Pro Football Focus' overall team grade, and they check in as 7-point road favorites here.
