Schedule Strength by Category

Using the data below, which summarizes the points allowed by the defenses each team will face in 2011, we can rank teams based on schedule strength against the pass and run. Thus if you are looking to draft a quarterback, you can see which team faces the toughest pass defenses over the course of the season and which has the easiest, which may help you decide between similar quarterbacks. The points are the total fantasy points given up by the opponent’s defenses against the rush and pass. This may be the most important chart to consider when looking at a particular position during the draft.

The strength of schedule analysis is not the only tool you should rely on, but it can certainly help you put together a strong fantasy squad. It can help make those tough ranking and drafting decisions when players have similar value in your eyes. It is also very useful for finding a bye week backup and in helping choose your starting lineup each week. You likely would not want to take a lesser player because of their schedule, but it will help you make some of those tough decisions. The schedule strength analysis can help improve your team just enough to put your squad over the top and help you win the title.
