Here at Scout Fantasy Sports, we are always developing new tools to help you gain the biggest advantage over your competition and win fantasy championship after fantasy championship. This upcoming fantasy football season, if you want to be as smart as our experts, you need to become familiar with our Strength of Schedule Tool, or SoS. It’s an extremely valuable tool that will assist you in making the right moves during your draft and help you school the rest of your league when it comes time to wheel and deal.
As you get deeper into your draft, things tend to tighten up. Once the stars are off the board is when championship-winning teams are built. And this is when the SoS comes in mighty handy. It can show you just how favorable a player’s matchups are over the course of the full season based on how many fantasy points his opponent allowed per game to his specific position. Or you can customize your search and go straight to the playoffs to see what a player’s schedule looks like during those critical weeks.
Maybe you’re stuck choosing between Andy Dalton and Patrick Mahomes in the late rounds. You are leaning toward Dalton due to his experience, but you really like Mahomes’ upside with Tyreek Hill. Instead of stressing out, let the awesome SoS do the work for you. You’ll see that Dalton has the fifth-most difficult schedule for quarterbacks in Fantasy Football while Mahomes has the seventh-eastiest. You can also filter based on Fantasy playoff schedules (Week 14-16) when Dalton has the second-most difficult three-week schedule in the NFL. In this case, Strength of Schedule may be what breaks the tie breaker and ultimately helps you decide to choose Kansas City’s Mahomes over Dalton.
The SoS truly gives you the upper hand when it’s time to trade. Let’s say you know you’re going to be the No. 1 seed during your league’s playoffs. If you follow the advice of Scout Fantasy Sports experts all season long, it’s no wonder why you’d end up the top dog. As the trade deadline approaches in November, you could really use a top-notch wideout. So, whom do you go after: Julio Jones or DeAndre Hopkins? Both have been absolute beasts over the past few years but Hopkins faces three solid defenses and has the fifth-worst Strength of Schedule in the Fantasy postseason while Julio has the third-easiest! Again, trust in the SoS.
But the SoS goes far beyond letting you see full-season and playoff matchups. You can view matchups for three separate portions of the season — Weeks 1-5, 6-10 and 11-15. You can also check out the favorability of a player’s remaining schedule at any point in the year by clicking the “Remaining Games” link. And the SoS will be updated each week during the season to provide you with the latest fantasy-points-allowed data.
This tool is for serious owners who are dedicated to winning, just like all of us at Scout Fantasy Sports. When used properly, it can mean the difference between a championship or a close second-place difference. With the SoS at your disposal, you have a massive competitive edge. It’s yet another innovative way that Scout Fantasy Sports is committed to making you a winner.
