|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 4 Projections|
|The Carolina Panthers have been struggling to protect Cam Newton (they've yielded eight quarterback takedowns), but the Atlanta Falcons have averaged just 1.0 sack per game. The Falcons also rank 28th in points allowed (30.3 per game) and 25th in takeaways. Atlanta will put up a fight at the Georgia Dome but won't produce any big fantasy numbers.|
|1 Sacks, 0 Ints, 0 Fumbles|
|The Atlanta Falcons started out 2015 like lions but finished it like lambs, partly because of a defense that struggled to generate big plays -- the sorts of plays than translate to fantasy points. Still, head coach Dan Quinn, who was hired mainly due to his defensive acumen, told the team's website the Falcons are on the right track. 'Defensively, in terms of the ballhawking mindset and attitude, we're getting closer there, but we're not there yet,' Quinn said. 'Creating turnovers is kind of the next step into that. When you have your scheme just right, the turnovers can come more and more. And affecting the quarterback is a big part of that, because that's oftentimes where the fumbles come. So that's how I think the best way (we can) bridge those two gaps together.' Some new additions in free agency and the draft will help, but this is a unit that's a long way from fantasy relevance.|
