Strength of Schedule Diff 2006/2007

Postby biju » Mon Jul 30, 2007 11:44 am

I was reading through some posts and one of them gave me the idea of reviewing the Strength of Schedule differences between last year and this year. Some of the more outstanding differences are highlighted below:

26      Carolina Panthers       0.477     17         0.504    0.027
27      Atlanta Falcons         0.473     15         0.508    0.035
28      St. Louis Rams          0.473     16         0.508    0.035
29      Tampa Bay Bucs          0.473     4          0.539    **0.066**
30      San Francisco 49ers     0.469     24         0.477    0.008
31      Chicago Bears           0.465     32         0.445   -0.020
32      Arizona Cardinals       0.461     19         0.500    0.039


One of the big ones to note is the Bucs. I've heard that people aren't as excited about Caddy this year and his ADP could get pretty low. The Bucs went from having the fourth worst SoS in 2006 to having the 29th--that's a huge jump. Now, I understand that some of these will be skewed as some teams can be run against as opposed to being passed against, but still it bodes well in general for pounding the ball at the end of the game, which is where many RBs get a majority of their yardage.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, it looks like the Patriots are going to have a much more difficult year this year, which may not help out Laurence Maroney (who may already have problems from his injury).

Anyway, I just thought I'd share.

I really like S.Jax and the Rams this year with such a low ranked schedule and I also like Caddy. I think both are going to have tremendous value (even though I already thought S.Jax was without seeing this info).
A win next week and all is forgotten.
