Here's our 2012 Fantasy Football Strength Of Schedule
A couple years ago I didn't really believe in Strength Of Schedule when drafting however, after paying close attention to SOS projections after the season completed I found many break out players came from teams that had a soft strength of schedule. Granted it's hard to figure out how good or bad any given defense will be year after year it does indeed vary a tad bit. For all intents and purposes, on average, most teams ability to produce on either side of the ball stays pretty much the same holistically, outside of a couple break out teams who improve considerably on either side of the ball.
In order to generate a fantasy football strength of schedule I weight the following variables to generate future performance figures found in the table below.
- last years performance data
- this years performance projections for each team
- free agent signings
- injuries that impacted performance (think Troy in Pittsburgh)
- coaching changes
The higher the number, the easier the schedule. The lower the number, the harder the schedule.
