If you're still reading the story in Week 15, 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 15 with our top three survivor pool picks.

NFL Survivor Week 15 Picks

3. Arizona Cardinals/Buffalo Bills/Tampa Bay Buccaneers/Dallas Cowboys

These four teams are basically all in the same conversation this week. If you've made it this far, there's a good chance you've picked all of them already and can't for Week 15. But if any of these teams are still available to you, you absolutely need to pick one. All four are favored by over 10 points on FanDuel Sportsbook, with the Arizona Cardinals leading all teams in Week 15 with a -820 moneyline.

2. San Francisco 49ers (vs ATL)

Now with the obvious ones out of the way, the San Francisco 49ers are rounding into form just in time for the playoffs. They've won four of their last five, with an average score of 28.8 to 19.8 during that stretch. The Atlanta Falcons have won two of their last three, sure, but those wins were against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers. Against their other three of their last five opponents, they were out-scored a combined 98 to 20.

1. Miami Dolphins (vs NYJ)

The Miami Dolphins are riding a quiet win streak, and Tua Tagovailoa has been playing the best football of his young NFL career. With a passer rating over 100 in each of his last four games, Tua has shredded the defenses he's been up against. Those were, admittedly, largely weak defenses, but that's no reason for concern here. The New York Jets define "weak defense", and are one of the aforementioned teams that Tua managed to light up. The Jets rank 32nd in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric (including No. 32 against the pass and 30 against the run), and Miami should have no trouble keeping this win streak alive at home.
