2016 Fantasy Football Strength of Schedule: RB’s

If you are a die-hard fantasy football player like myself, you spend a lot of your summer studying players, teams, tendencies and an underrated aspect, strength of schedule. Strength of schedule is important tool in the arsenal of serious fantasy football drafters. By knowing what players have easier schedules you’ll be able to make the hard decisions between two players.

My Fantasy Sports Talk’s Strength of Schedule rankings are based on fantasy points (performance scoring) allowed by position. #1 is the best/easiest/most favorable schedule for that position and #32 is the hardest/least favorable schedule. #1 means that the opponents that the team faces during the selected period allow the most fantasy points.

Note: The backs listed have a chance to see their fair share of carries this year. Some are locked into tight battles in Training Camp for touches, so keep up-to-date with the shakeups.
