Using our rules for our money leagues, we came up with a schedule strength ranking for the quarterback position. We are using our fantasy defenses report to calculate the rankings. This report can be found in all of our leagues under the "reports" heading. We took the schedule of each team and entered the average number of fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks last season from all of their opponents to get our fantasy points allowed number. This is a good indication of the quarterbacks with the most favorable schedules for fantasy scoring for the coming season.

The results show Cam Newton, Jameis Winston and Russell Wilson could be primed for big seasons. Winston could finally have that breakout year with a favorable schedule and new coaching staff that could play to his strengths. And don’t count out Matt Ryan for a big season after his huge numbers last year. He gets another favorable schedule (seventh easiest) for success. There are plenty of top quarterbacks with favorable fantasy schedules that seemed primed for success once again.

On the flipside, Patrick Mahomes, who led all fantasy leagues in quarterback scoring last year, gets the toughest fantasy schedule for quarterbacks. Does this impact your ranking of Mahomes at all? It is something to at least think about come draft day. Matthew Stafford had a season to forget last year and could be setup for a similar season this year, getting the second hardest schedule for quarterbacks. Aaron Rodgers and Derek Carr also have challenging schedules for quarterbacks. Adjust your rankings accordingly. There are several elite-type quarterbacks with challenging fantasy schedules. It could make for a topsy turvy year at the position.

Take a close look at this entire ranking when figuring out your fantasy quarterback rankings for the coming season.
