The NFL schedule has been released, so we thought it was a good time to see how it impacts the fantasy world. Below is a look at the fantasy strength of schedule for the receiver position.
Using our rules for our money leagues, we came up with a schedule strength ranking for the wide receiver 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 receivers last season from all of their opponents to get our fantasy points allowed number. This is a good indication of the receivers with the most favorable schedules for fantasy scoring for the coming season.
Bears receiver Allen Robinson had a big season last year and could build on that with the most favorable schedule for receivers. He might deserve to be bumped up a few spots in your rankings this year. The Cowboys trio of top receivers get the second easiest schedule for receivers. These guys might be hit or miss with so many mouths to feed but are going to have some huge games along the way.
