Too early to think about playoff strength of schedule?

Postby The305MiamiCanes » Wed Aug 17, 2011 4:54 pm

I was starting to think about the playoffs already, our league takes the top 6 teams out of 12 for the playoffs and given my team I feel im a sure in for them. Is it too early to start thinking about my RB's playoff strength of schedule? Our playoffs are weeks 14,15,16.

1qb,2wr,2rb,1flex
My team
QB-Big Ben,Bradford
RB-CJ2K5,Turner,SJackson,Sprolles,Snelling,Cadillac
WR-Mike Williams(tb) Santana Moss,Britt,AJ Green,Sims-Walker,
TE-Jared Cook

Chris Johnson - Saints,Colts,Jaguars
Turner - Panthers,Jaguars,Saints
SJax - Seahawks,Bengals,Steelers

Clearly Johnson/Turner have easy schedules so I was thinking of trying to trade Steven Jackson for a RB with a more favorable matchup.
Options
Peterson - Lions,Saints,Redskins
Rice - Colts,Chargers,Browns
Forte - Broncos,Seahawks,Packers

Well I mean if you could package Steven Jackson for Adrian Peterson, Ray Rice, or Matt Forte I would do it anyway, not necessarily because of playoff schedule but because I like all three more.

It's just too early to think about SOS for the playoffs. Anything can happen. It's not even week 2 of the preseason.

If you can improve your team, do it, but I say don't worry about SOS.

Can I get some thoughts on my trade offers that I have sent out?

I would give Steven Jackson/Kenny Britt for either Rice,AP, or Foster.

Any chance those go through or do I need to add more?
The owner of Foster has Schaub so should I try and trade Big Ben for Schaub along with my trade for Foster?

In the NFL, i think its too early to try to predict which defenses will be good. Too many injuries and unseen changes before that time. I wouldnt look at playoff schedule until i clinched a playoff spot or at least mid-season if you're sure to make playoffs.

fantasy owners are very skeptical about giving away guys like AP, Rice or foster. its not worth trading any of the backs you have for any of the guys you mentioned regardless of SOS

Don't jump the gun here! How about when you find out which teams are good or not. Look at the Cowboys last year for a prime example; Buccaneers a great one going the other way. You just don't know yet.
QB: BREES, Cutler
RB: TURNER, MCGAHEE, R. JENNINGS, Leshoure, D. Williams, Hillman, Hunter, Dwyer
WR: CRUZ, GARCON, Amendola, Edwards, D. Baldwin

way too early. Defenses change so much year to year and injuries will happen. Great point with Cowboys comment

as far as your trade offer, no way it happens. You are trying for a top 5 back with a guy who will get suspended and a rb that many people are very leery of.
