2017 Tough Fantasy Strength of Schedule for QBs - Rivers-Ezra-Shaw

Earlier this week, we took a closer look at the NFL schedules for all 32 teams and found a trio of quarterbacks with good schedules for Fantasy Football. But now, we’re all about finding tough QB Fantasy Strength of Schedules for 2017, so you can use this information to sort your cheat sheets accordingly!

It’s not that we’re saying don’t draft these quarterbacks no matter what – but we are saying that if you have a couple quarterbacks that are similarly ranked, this should help. Say you realize one has a horrible Fantasy Strength of Schedule, and the other has one of the best ones for quarterbacks, then maybe you’ll make a better decision.

By the time the NFL Preseason rolls around, we’ll have covered all of these Fantasy Strength of Schedules:

  • 3 Quarterbacks With Favorable Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Quarterbacks With Tough Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Running Backs With Favorable Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Running Backs With Tough Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Wide Receivers With Favorable Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Wide Receivers With Tough Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Tight Ends With Favorable Strength of Schedules
  • 3 Tight Ends With Tough Strength of Schedules

We’re not going to point out the super quarterbacks with bad schedules that you were already drafting really high. For instance, just because the Colts have the 27th-ranked Fantasy Strength of Schedule for quarterbacks, we’re not recommending you steer clear of Andrew Luck.

We’re also not going to point out QBs you were never thinking about starting, either. For instance, you don’t need another reason not to draft Jared Goff. But if you do, his Fantasy Strength of Schedule is the 30th-toughest in the league.

We’ll be taking our Fantasy Strength of Schedules from the research done over at FFToolbox.com. I used the Fantasy SoS for Weeks 1-16, since that’s the normal length for Fantasy Football leagues.
