Using the actual results from weeks 2 through 10 of lthis season, the schedule was compared against the top 10 and worst 10 defenses for allowing fantasy points for passing yards and scores.

The table to the right shows the fantasy points allowed to opposing teams for all offensive passing per game.

A "Good" game was when the team faced an opposing defense that was in the top 10 for allowing fantasy points. A "Bad" game was when that team faced an opposing defense that was in the ten defenses that allowed the least amount of fantasy points.

Tthe most important findings are the extremes as they will change less as the season progresses and it is generally more important to not face a tough ("bad") defense than it is to go against an easy defense ("good"). Most of your starters are going to be among the best at their position, so the biggest question is if they will be limited by opposing defenses.

Three different views are given below - Weeks 11 to 13 show what players will face until the fantasy playoff weeks. Weeks 11 through 16 are shown for a full season view and weeks 14 to 16 show the most common weeks for fantasy playoffs. Below that is the NFL schedule marked for each team to show when they have good (green) or bad (red) match-ups.
