I’m going to try the impossible here and give you a strength of schedule for quarterbacks this season. I agree that these are perilous because the only true stats we have are from last season and much of last season is useless. So why even try? Good question. I do think that on average a team that was extremely poor at say, keeping QBs from scoring fantasy points, isn’t going to turn around and completely shut down QBs in a season. Yes, it happens sometimes and that’s the peril. So there’s my mountain of qualifiers.
Below here we have how each team’s pass defense ranked in six categories and then I average those ranks to come up with an overall ranking that I then place down in the schedule below here. So there you go.
I will do similar SOS schedules as we gather data from the 2013 season.
Below you can see the overall average SOS for quarterbacks and the average for week 14-16 (the fantasy playoffs). Blue means favorable, green average and reddish difficult.
I try to only look...
