2015 NFL Schedule Analysis

Every piece of information a team owner can gather helps create a winning edge over the competition and performing a schedule analysis is one way to gain the upper hand and will lead to better decisions on draft day. Fantasy players have better chances of scoring when their respective teams have a better chance of scoring and teams have a better chance of scoring if their schedule is loaded with favorable match-ups. Our analysis of team schedules will help you determine which teams and players have the more favorable opponents and in which week. Team owners will definitely want to pay close attention to the match-ups during their fantasy football playoff weeks.

For each NFL team below, the reader will find a tabular analysis by position for each week of their respective 16-game schedule. The tables will indicate the difficulty of the match-up for each position (QB, RB, RB-PPR, WR, WR-PPR, TE, TE-PPR, K and DEF) as determined by the ranking of their opponent in terms of how many fantasy points that team gave up to the specific position in 2014. The lower the number, e.g. 1-10, the less difficult the match-up. These are colored in green and represent the bottom-10 in terms of difficulty. The higher the number, e.g. 23-32, the more difficult the match-up. These are colored in red, representing the top-10 in terms of difficulty.
