After a pretty successful week 1 in the books, much of ROTB members are still alive. A survival pick'em league is no joke, and as some have already experienced, not every game is a lock. New England and San Diego nearly blew it yesterday, which would have eliminated most of us. Just in case anybody is new to this, here's a quick breakdown. You pick a team each week to win, you only pick one, and you can't pick that team again for the season. If that team loses when you pick them, you are dead. Whoever lasts the longest wins. And if you haven't started yet, you can jump in anytime. Here's more detailed information and here's the members that are still alive and those that are no longer with us.

As the season progresses, the above table will become more detailed, such as how long a certain player has lasted compared to a new players streak. For now, it's pretty simple as it's only week 1. The next table will show the teams that have been picked so far, how many times they were picked, the number of times they "saved" a player, and the number of times they "lost" a player.
Here are next weeks slate of games. I'll post links to the previous weeks, that way you can go back to see your past picks if you forgot them. It shouldn't be too difficult to remember who you've already selected, but I'll do my best to check and let anyone know that they've already picked a certain team before kick off. Week 1 Picks.
