- Matthew Freedman identifies the best and worst schedules for 2019 fantasy football playoffs.
It’s Week 14: Welcome to the fantasy football playoffs! Just three more weeks stand between you and eternal glory.
Will you win the championship this year? That might depend on the upcoming schedule for the players on your team.
So who has the easiest fantasy playoffs schedules? Who has the hardest?
Using data from Pro Football Reference, I’ve broken out the remaining fantasy schedule by position based on how many points per game future opponents have allowed.
Here are some thoughts I have on how the rest of the fantasy schedule breaks down.
Favorable Fantasy Playoff Schedules
- Tennessee Titans: Ryan Tannehill has multiple total touchdowns (passing and rushing) in all six of his games as a starter this season, and he’s completed a career-high 72.7% of his pass attempts. With games against the Raiders and Texans in Weeks 14-15, he could help fantasy investors get to the Championship Round before a tougher matchup with the Saints in Week 16. If you’ve been starting him so far, there’s no reason to stop doing so now.
- Denver Broncos: Rookie Drew Lock got his first career start in Week 13, and he had a palatable performance with two passing touchdowns and 15 yards rushing. He had only 134 yards passing and an interception, but if you’re starting him, you’re probably desperate enough anyway to live with the production he just gave you. Up next he has three top-12 matchups against the Texans, Chiefs and Lions.
