Scheduletron: Strength of schedule, rushing

Baltimore and Seattle had the league’s two best rushing offenses at the end of last year. They also, as luck would have it, project to play the easiest schedules against the run in the upcoming season.  more »


Scheduletron: Strength of schedule, passing

What if I told you Patrick Mahomes was going to face the hardest pass-defense schedule in the league? Would that affect where you would rank him?  more »


Scheduletron: Fast start teams

In a fantasy league, it sure is nice to get off to a good start. With that in mind, it makes sense to pay attention to how the schedule lays out – which teams have easy (and difficult) schedules early in the season.   more »


Scheduletron: Patriots schedules

Have the Patriots tended to benefit from playing the league’s easiest schedules year in and year out? That’s not what the numbers suggest.  more »


Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

Upcoming opponents are in place, so we can take an early look at strength of schedule for the 2019 season. And two teams that played in the conference championship games project to play the schedules that tie as the 2nd-easiest in the league.  more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

I like what the Bears have done. They’ve got the great defense, which has been able to smother some teams, and Matt Nagy has been able to scheme the offense to success in a lot of games. But it’s also a team that’s benefited from scheduling.  more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

There are three powerhouse offenses in the NFL this year. I see in my weekly look at strength of schedule that two of them have vastly different schedules.   more »


Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

With strength of schedule, you can use it to gauge which players might benefit from playing weak opponents in the future. It can also be used to help identify which teams have benefitted from playing against lesser opponents. And this year, the Bears, Chargers and Colts are high on the list.   more »


Scheduletron: Cam on the rise

If you’re a fan of strength of schedule, Cam Newton makes a lot of sense as a key late-season player. Carolina’s closing schedule looks unusually favorable.   more »


Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

Colt McCoy isn’t taking the reins of Washington’s offense at a great time. It’s a team that’s riddled with injuries (with both starting guards on injured reserve) and the schedule indicates the schedule will be one of the hardest in the league over the next month.  more »

Scheduletron: Revised strength of schedule

The strength of schedule data indicates the Houston Texans are the kings of the easy schedule this year. They have played the easiest schedule so far, and the numbers suggest they will play the easiest schedule in the final eight weeks.  more »

Scheduletron: Trouble for Rams defense?

Somebody asked last week about strength of schedule for defenses, and I wanted to hit that while I had a minute. It’s one way to potential think about adding or subtracting defenses from your fantasy roster.   more »


Scheduletron: Hot stretch for Flacco?

Playing around with the strength of schedule numbers (which I like to do once a week), I see that scheduling could be very good for Baltimore’s offense … and not so good for the offense that used to call Baltimore home.   more »

Scheduletron: Updated strength of schedule

Teams have now played 5-6 games, so it can get more meaningful to look at strength of schedule. You take the numbers so far, plug them into the upcoming schedule, and see which offenses project to travel the easiest roads. It’s usually different than what you expected in the preseason.  more »


Scheduletron: The case for Andy Dalton

Remember the preseason, when we all agreed that Houston would play the league’s easiest schedule? Its opponents had a combined win-loss record of 116-140 in 2017. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But now that it’s October, that data’s looking pretty much worthless.   more »
