***Wide Receiver 2015 First Quarter S.o.S chart: Coming after NFL week 4!

***Wide Receiver 2015 First Half S.o.S chart: Coming after NFL week 9!

 

The following is the Strength of Schedule (S.o.S) breakdown for Wide Receivers. Players at the position who will be impacted are listed, as well as how many good, neutral, and difficult match ups each team will see in 2015. A further breakdown of each teams playoff match ups is included as well.

Also noted are teams who could potentially see a jump up from the bottom of the barrel in 2014, as well as teams that could free fall from near the top of last season.

Don’t forget that this break down is intended for drafting of two similar players near their appropriate ADP (average draft position). Just because the Saints are near the top of this list and the Broncos are near the bottom doesn’t mean you should draft Brandin Cooks or Marques Colton over Demaryius Thomas or Emmanuel Sanders.

* The breakdown was derived as followed:

  • A Good match up is against a team that finished in the bottom 10 in fantasy PPG (points per game) vs WRs in 2014. Good match ups were awarded +1.
  • A Neutral match up is against a team that finished in the middle 12 in fantasy PPG vs WRs in 2014. Neutral match ups were awarded 0.
  • A Difficult match up is against a team that finished in the top 10 in fantasy PPG vs WRs in 2014. Difficult match ups were awarded -1.
  • Once points were added up the higher the total number, the higher the teams ranking. (Example: Tampa Bay has 9 Good (+9); 2 Difficult (-2); and 5 Neutral (0) match ups for a total of +7)
  • If teams finished with the same end total, most Good match ups for the season was tie-breaker number one. If still tied, best playoff schedule was used as tie-breaker number two.
