Fantasy Overview - Week 12

Get yourself caught up on what's going on around the league. I share some stat-driven information and explore the fantasy landscape from each position. This week I focus on Strength of Schedule for playoff weeks 14, 15 and 16. 

The Fantasy playoffs are right around the corner. Most leagues use Weeks 14-16 for their playoff season, so that's what I'm using below to show the strength of schedule based on a PPR scoring format. Below is a breakdown of what to expect for Weeks 14, 15 and 16. 

The Rating number reflects number of fantasy points per game the team has given up against that position compared to the number of points per game that team's opponents have scored in their other games. For example, if you see +3 under NYJ for running backs, it means that running backs have scored, on average, 3 more fantasy points per game against Jets than against the rest of their opponents. Thus, a positive number indicates a bad defense, and a good matchup. Green = good.  Red = bad.
