Surviving a national football league survivor pool
© 2017 INFORMS. In this paper, an analytical approach to National Football League (NFL) survival pools is investigated. This paper introduces into the literature NFL survival pools and presents optimization models for determining strategies. Computational results indicate that planning only partway through the season yields the highest survival probabilities, which dominate millions of randomly generated strategies.
