The Survivor Pool hasn't been easy, unless you've going against the Cincinnati Bengals.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Houston and the New York Yankees will enter the 2020 Major League Baseball season as the frontrunners to win the World Series.
There wasn’t much drama in week 9 in the NFL season, at least on Sunday. With all home teams winning, it was a prime opportunity to stay alive in the Survivor Pool.
Russell Wilson keeps showing why he should be an MVP candidate. Wilson went for five touchdowns in week 9 in a high-scoring affair against Tampa Bay.
The NFL Survivor Pool has been a difficult one to keep tabs on this season. Upsets have happened, with very few teams separating themselves from the rest of the pack.
Running backs have created a conundrum this year, with several of the running backs we anticipated to regularly be at the top not necessarily playing to their potential.
In another example of you really don't know what to expect on a weekly basis in fantasy football, Daniel Jones led all quarterbacks in fantasy scoring in week 8.
The most widely picked-up running back from the fantasy football waiver wire dominated week 7, generating the most fantasy points among all running backs.
The Survivor Pool hasn't been a great place for me in recent weeks. If New England hasn't been available, it's been a tough one to navigate, especially with Miami being recently on a bye week and playing Washington last week.
Week 6 proved to be an interestingly even week for quarterbacks in fantasy football. The top-three quarterbacks were separated by just three fantasy points, with Matt Ryan edging Lamar Jackson.
It's not often you see a wide receiver go for more than 50 fantasy points in one outing. And that's especially true with a player like Will Fuller, who hasn't been anywhere near the WR1 this year.
We expect Christian McCaffrey to turn in performances like he did in week 5. However, to see Aaron Jones go for more than 40 fantasy points was a little more surprising.
Injuries to quarterbacks have been a hot topic so far this season. But when it comes to other positions, there haven't been too many high-profile, long-term injuries to the best position players.
We survived week 3 in the NFL Survivor Pool. That's further than most did in 2018, thanks to the epic Vikings loss to the Bills.
Mike Evans and Keenan Allen are showing once again why wasting early draft picks on wide receivers is fool's gold in fantasy football.
The Minnesota Vikings offensive line has shown plenty of growth since last season. It wasn't the line that created the issues displayed by Kirk Cousins in week 2. That was all about Cousins.
Welcome to overreaction week. Every year, we go crazy over week 1 results, only to be shocked when that same team that looked unstoppable in week 1 didn't necessary perform to that same standard in week 2.
Do you know who led the NFL in week 1 passing yardage? If it would take a few moments, we couldn't blame you. Andy Dalton held that distinction with 418 yards and still just finished 11th in fantasy scoring among quarterbacks.
For the most part, injuries were avoided in week 1 of the NFL season, making the week 2 waiver wire a little less important in that regard.
The obsession with wide receivers in fantasy football has subsided. Now it's time to find wide receivers who can be consistent in attracting targets.
Had it not been for a historic loss by Minnesota to Buffalo last season, I would have gone undefeated through the 2018 Survivor Pool season.
Two of the biggest names in fantasy football will not make an appearance in week 1. Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon will not be on the field in week 1 and may not be seen for several weeks.
