|Strength of Schedule|
|Strength of Schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF position. The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.|
|Week 1 Projections|
|The Eagles defense looks primed to return to an elite takeaway unit given how they've performed during the preseason. They should see plenty of takeaways with Robert Griffin under center for the Browns for the first time and with Josh Gordon on the sidelines.|
|3 Sacks, 1 Ints, 1 Fumbles|
|The Eagles are changing over to a 4-3 defense under new DC Jim Schwartz in 2016 -- a change ESPN's Phil Sheridan believes will pay big dividends. 'Schwartz runs a 4-3 designed to free up players to be aggressive and use their natural ability,' Sheridan said. 'Fletcher Cox, who made the Pro Bowl in Davis and Kelly's 3-4 scheme, tweeted excitedly about the prospect of playing in a 4-3 again. In a 3-4, Cox and the other defensive linemen have to take on blockers, hold their position and allow linebackers and defensive backs to make plays. In Schwartz's 4-3, Cox will be playing defensive tackle. In Buffalo, with Schwartz running a 4-3, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus had 10 sacks in 2014. Two years earlier, when Schwartz was head coach in Detroit, tackle Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley combined for 11.5 sacks.' The takeaway? Schwartz has helmed many a fantasy-relevant defense, the Eagles can probably be had on the cheap on draft day, and the team gets a juicy Week 1 matchup with the hapless Cleveland Browns.|
