The Best and Worst Early-Season 2020 Schedules

A look at the best and worst teams to target for a hot start in fantasy football leagues

The NFL gave us another gift, another glimmer of a semi-normal future on the horizon when they released the 2020 schedule on Thursday. With prudent action in our communities and governments along with a comprehensive plan enacted by the NFL and cooperation from player and team personnel, we can get there! May we see all of these games happen on the days they are scheduled, and maybe even with some fans in the stands! Then we would all be winners. In the meantime, we can take a look at the schedule and project who will get off to the hottest and slowest starts in this week-to-week game.

Fast Starters


Before you get too worried about the 49ers in Week 1 remember that the Cardinals played them straight up twice last year and put up 25 and 26 points in the matchups. Then they get the weak Washington back seven, the mediocre Lions defense, the under-construction Panthers, the underrated but limited Jets, the question mark Cowboys, the has-been Seahawks, and the under-construction Dolphins defense after a bye. This looks like a stretch to build a lot of momentum for an offense that should be able to unlock new passing game capabilities with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins and Kyler Murray focused completely on football.

Actionable Advice: Break ties involving Murray, Hopkins, Kenyan Drake and Christian Kirk in favor of the Cardinals.
