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

So, in other words, Bernard Pierce, Justin Forsett and the Ravens running backs have the most favorable schedule (through Week 16).

On the flip side, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles and the Eagles running backs have the least favorable schedule.

While strength of schedule should not be the sole factor in determining who to add off the waiver wire or target via trade, it helps potentially break a tie between two players that you may view as comparable.
