Fantasy Football Strength of Schedule (SOS) and Fantasy Points Allowed by Position (FPAbP) are two tools you can use to maximize value in your Fantasy Football draft. For our purposes Strength of Schedule refers more to the season as a whole, so you can look for players with a high percentage of favorable matchups. Fantasy Points Allowed looks more toward individual matchups you can take advantage of during the season. There’s little doubt that the two are intertwined and attempt to do the same thing; exploit the inequity of the NFL schedule to your advantage. We’ll focus on Strength of schedule more here, and get you some more sources for FPAbP as Week 1 approaches. I have included a couple links to the final 2016 FPAbP to get a head start on that.
As you’ll see as you run through this content the various websites featured approach this in different ways. It’s when these methods are in agreement that you know you’ve really found something.
