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.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
Despite giving up a fair amount of yards and points versus the Patriots, the Cardinals should be able to score some fantasy points on sacks and turnovers. Depending on maximizing their scoring chances, the Cardinals could have a fairly decent week, even though playing a solid offensive Patriots team.
3 Sacks, 1 Ints, 1 Fumbles

Season Projections
The Arizona Cardinals are the NFL's best example of a defense where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Yes, the Redbirds have some star power in the likes of Calais Campbell, cornerback Patrick Peterson and defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, but they are also a team that spent most of 2015 with a safety playing inside linebacker. And yet, the Cardinals were both the NFL's stingiest defense in terms of points allowed and a top-five fantasy option. They are also a team that could be even better defensively in 2016 after adding Pro Bowl pass rusher Chandler Jones in a trade with the New England Patriots. The Cardinals also added a potential impact rookie in first-round pick Robert Nkemdiche. All this isn't to say that the Cardinals are the best team defense in all of fantasy football. But it isn't to say that they aren't either. Consider them a high-end weekly starter.
