Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Playing surprisingly poorly against the turnover-prone Jets, this unit became a terrible solution as a plug & play fantasy defense. Needless to say, we do not recommend rolling with Oakland against a Chiefs team that has served as one of the worst matchups for fantasy defenses.
A defense that has been in free fall for the past three seasons and is well and truly entrenched in a defensive overhaul and rebuild. A massive exodus of players – some good, some bad – has cleared the way for the franchise to attempt to revive their fortunes. The new moves look good, a solid foundation on which to build. Few sacks, fewer interceptions and an inability to get offenses off the field. There are better options out there.
