Favorable Schedules for the Fantasy Playoffs

Postby Captain Jack Sparrow » Mon Oct 30, 2006 4:23 pm

Thought this might interest some of you:

Our local fantasy radio show broke down the NFL teams with favorable schedules for the end of the season. You may want to start looking and moving for players on these teams to set up your playoff run.

Easy Schedules:
- Green Bay (go get Favre, Green, Jennings, Driver)
- Buffalo (get McGahee now)
- San Francisco (do you really want any 49ers? Gore maybe)
- Minnesota ((probably some receivers, Wiggins, or B Johnson on waivers now)

On the flip side, here are teams with tough schedules down the stretch

- St. Louis (ouch, I have Bulger and SJack)
- Cincinnati (ouch I have CJ)
- Detroit (um...)
- Kansas City

Might want to consider making some moves now if you are already pretty sure of a playoff spot.

I would not get rid of Rams. They still play Cards, 49ers, Seahawks, Raiders, and Redskins. Only tough matchup is Chicago and Minnesota (and Minny is Week 17).

The Chiefs schedule is brutal against the run near the end. Week 14, 15, and 16: Ravens, @ Chargers, @ Raiders. Denver in Week 12 and JAX is Week 17.

Just what I was looking for Cap'n Jack. Appreciate the post. ;-D I'm fortunate enough to have the top two FFWR's in Holt and Wayne, but am looking to upgrade on my backs. I have R. Brown and Foster, but not much after that. I may target Gore or Green for a WR or try and package Foster and another WR (C. Henry or Stallworth) for McGahee. Now's the time to set up for the finals.

Umm... How can you guys forget about the Seahawks??? Easiest schedule in the NFL hands down.


Oakland
St. Louis
San Francisco
Green Bay
Denver
Arizona
San Francisco
San Diego
Tampa Bay

With the exception of Denver and maybe San Diego those teams suck. San Fran twice is mouthwatering.

Well, they are wrong.

11/05/06 at St. Louis Rams 12:00 PM CBS
11/12/06 at Miami Dolphins 12:00 PM CBS*
11/19/06 Oakland Raiders 12:00 PM CBS*
11/23/06 Denver Broncos 7:00 PM NFL+/WDAF-TV 4 in KC
12/03/06 at Cleveland Browns 12:00 PM CBS*
12/10/06 Baltimore Ravens 12:00 PM CBS*
12/17/06 at San Diego Chargers 3:05 PM CBS*
12/23/06 at Oakland Raiders 7:00 PM NFL+/KSHB-TV 41 in KC
12/31/06 Jacksonville Jaguars 12:00 PM CBS*

That's what's left for the Chiefs. Some tough games, but the Raiders in what is most league's Superbowl?

They basically alternative tough games and easy games.

Our playoffs are 15, 16, and 17. LJ already did good against SD, but then this is at SD, so he might have a little more trouble in that game. Good matchup at Oakland. I'm not sure what to expect with Jacksonville. It is in KC... which is a tough place to play.

I remember when analyzing Alexander's schedule a few weeks ago (to see how good he'd be upon returning from his broken foot) that their schedule is very soft coming up. Their playoff schedule is:

Arizona
San Francisco
San Diego

So only one tough game there...the first two alone easily make up for W16.
