Based on each team's scheduled opponents through Week 16, which is the championship round in most fantasy leagues, we have tallied the average fantasy points allowed by each of their opponents to the position.

So, in other words, the Buccaneers running backs have the most favorable schedule (through Week 16).

On the flip side, the Bills running backs have the least favorable schedule.

While strength of schedule should not be the sole factor in determining who to draft, it helps potentially break a tie between two players that you may view as comparable.
