Always take the Ease of Schedule for receivers with a grain of salt – each team will use three or four receivers while they only use one quarterback or running back (for the most part anyway). The passing game is most often predicated on game situations which make them harder to predict and primary receivers invariably do well regardless of the schedule. This review most impacts those secondary receivers that will have an easier time getting open.

The Indy wideouts look hot again not that they needed to have the #1 schedule. The schedules may end up producing some nice draft values with receivers from the Packers, Jets or Raiders though questions abound with all three teams.

Similar to the quarterback EOS, those Buccaneer and Falcon receivers look likely to have a down year which in Atlanta is almost hard to do anyway. One of the bigger surprises – the Rams get a tough slate for the fantasy playoff time though their scheme is supposed to continue their pass-happy ways anyway.
