2009 NFL Strength of Schedule for teams vs Points Given Up
Check out our other SOS Articles: Strength of Schedule vs Run Strength of Schedule vs Pass Strength of Schedule vs Win/Loss When it comes to strength of schedule I take the schedules against the run, pass and point given up much more serious then I take the win/loss schedule. It seems that most talks shows always point out strength of schedule when it comes to the win/lose side of the schedule but never the other areas. In fantasy football it is vitally important to at least give these area’s a look through and see if their are holes in some of these appraisals or if they really hold weight for the season. Listed below I have some points I found interesting when over looking the schedules in terms of points given up. Falcons, Saints and Panthers have very hard schedules in Points Given Up This is interesting as these teams all had solid seasons for fantasy owners just last year. The team that I will be most interested to see how they handle this issue will be the Saints. I noted in my strength of schedule vs the run that the Falcons schedule is not as bad as one would think. But the Saints are a little bit different story as fantasy owners need a lot from a quarterback if he is going to go as high as Drew Brees will this season. Not only do the Saints have probably the hardest schedule for points against but they also have a hard schedule for passing. Seahawks, 49ers, Rams and Cardinals have Easiest Points Given Up Schedule
This is a fun division to be in for fantasy owners as these teams can all cough up the points on defense in any given week. Out of the four the Seahawks have the most friendly points schedule to face in the NFL this year and are looking good this off-season.
I’ve been talking about this pass offense as a nice sleeper this year and seeing this schedule only makes me like this team even more. Matt Hasselbeck and T.J. Houshmandzadeh should both have fine seasons as this team will challenge for the Western Division title.
It’s nice to see that the 49ers and Rams will have easy schedules as they will need them to have success. With that being said one has to question just how much success through the air can both of this teams actually have, even with a great passing schedule? The Rams may very will not have a healthy Donnie Avery all season and they no longer have Torry Holt on the team. For the 49ers, they can’t decided which quarterback they want to start and star rookie draft pick Michael Crabtree is still unsigned. I wouldn’t recommend you have these teams starting quarterbacks but look for sleeper receivers to come out and have good years for your team. Josh Morgan is having a terrific camp in San Francisco and maybe a guy like Keenan Burton can step up in St. Louis.
