To help you make your NFL pick'em picks this week, I've ranked our straight up (SU) and against the spread (ATS) options by confidence below.

These rankings are based on my power ratings, which help power our NFL PRO Projections — they account for various factors such as injuries and travel.

I'll update these rankings before Sunday's games kickoff, so be sure to bookmark this story and check it again that morning. Also, follow me in the Action app for notifications about any picks I track there.

There are a few games this week that are going to be affected by teams not playing their starters the entire time. The ChargersBroncos and BuccaneersFalcons lines could move a lot if we get more information on how long Los Angeles and Tampa Bay will be playing their key names.

I have a lower confidence than usual for those games. Use the downloadable spreadsheet with my tables so you can plug in the latest spreads.

I'll update the embedded table featuring my ATS confidence ratings throughout the week, but your contest may use different lines, so I've also created this downloadable spreadsheet so you can calculate ratings specific to your pool.

Simply add the odds your contest is using into Column D, then the edge and ratings will automatically recalculate in Column F.
