The Ease of Schedule is least useful with receivers since their production is often the product of the game situation. Most teams will not throw if they have a good running game or are ahead on the scoreboard.

The Patriots come out on top, sad since there is no primary receiver there. The Browns may get Jeff Garcia some help when he wants to throw deep (though Terrell Owens says he cannot anyway). Chris Chambers (MIA), Santana Moss (NYJ) and newcomer Justin McCareins (NYJ) could find more accommodating secondaries this season.

The Chargers are worst of all but have no receivers anyway along with the Chiefs. Chad Johnson (CIN) and Randy Moss (MIN) will find a tougher time getting open this season and in the case of Johnson, he will have a new quarterback trying to find him as well.

Look for Larry Fitzgerald (ARZ) and Reggie Wayne (IND) to catch some balls during the fantasy playoffs.
