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.

Saints receiver Michael Thomas had a season to forget last year but he might be setup for a turnaround. He has the easiest fantasy schedule for receivers this year. This also bodes well for new starter Tre’Quan Smith. These two Saints could be ready for big seasons. The Panthers duo of Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore had great seasons last year. It could be more of the same for both of them with a new quarterback and a schedule that allowed the fourth most fantasy points to receivers.
The Jaguars, Patriots and Colts are three other teams with very favorable fantasy schedules for running backs this year. Michael Pittman seems setup for a breakout year in Indy. D.J. Chark is the top target in Jacksonville and get Trevor Lawrence to throw him passes. Chark is ready to up his game this year. And the Patriots added some receivers this offseason, including Nelson Agholor. New England receivers could be worth a gamble late in drafts because of their schedule.
