12 Fantasy Players with Easy Early-Season Schedules
At 4for4 we take using strength of schedule to a different level with our signature metric, schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed, or aFPA. By removing schedule bias, we can level the playing field and compare matchups in an apples-to-apples manner.
Making decisions on who to draft at ADP can come down to several factors, but for this article, I’ll point out some players who have an easier start to the season than others, so that you can maximize points right out of the gate.
By ensuring a solid start to the year beginning 3-1 or 4-0, we can vastly increase our odds to make it to the fantasy promise land in the cold months of winter; the playoffs. In a fantasy league where 6 teams out of twelve make the playoffs, there's a 92% chance of making the playoffs if you start 4-0, conversely if you start 0-4 your odds are 9%.
I omitted elite players who you’d be drafting anyway and focused on more of the middle-to late-round guys that we sometimes have difficulty distinguishing from one another.
