Now that the 2014 NFL regular-season schedule has been released, we have updated our fantasy strength of schedules.

Based on each team's opponents through Week 16, which is the championship round in most fantasy leagues, we tally the average fantasy points allowed to each position for a team's upcoming opponents.

So, in other words, Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and the Jets running backs have the most favorable schedule (through Week 16).

On the flip side, Steven Jackson, Devonta Freeman and the Falcons 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.
