Strength of Schedule (Linebackers) - Week 3

  Posted 9/16 by Clayton Gray, Exclusive to Footballguys.com

Key

  • Rem - The average SOS over the remaining weeks of the regular season.
  • Dif - The difference in SOS between the opponents a team has already played and their remaining opponents. The higher the value, the easier the remaining schedule (which should translate to increased production).
  • Re16 - The average SOS over the remaining weeks of the regular season through week 16.
  • Di16 - The difference in SOS between the opponents a team has already played and their remaining opponents through week 16. The higher the value, the easier the remaining schedule (which should translate to increased production).
  • Nxt3 - The average SOS over the next three weeks of the regular season.
  • Fnl4 - The average SOS over the last four weeks of the regular season.
  • Week-By-Week Outlook - The relative fantasy points allowed at this position by each team's opponents for each remaining week of the NFL regular season. Note that the prior opponents (and their SOS at the time of the contest) are included as well. This allows you to see what level of competition each team has faced lately.
    • Values in red are the fantasy points allowed by the worst eight defenses.
    • Values in blue are the fantasy points allowed by the best eight defenses.

Use the color coding to find stretches of easy games (where a team could get hot) or difficult games (where a team could get cold).
