NFL Strength of Schedule (SOS) Rankings by Position
Select Page

The NFL 2021 fantasy football strength of schedule (SOS) position rankings are based on fantasy points allowed by position during the 2020 regular season.

The higher the rank number, the easier the schedule that team’s position faced and conversely, the lower the rank number, the harder the schedule that team’s position faced.

This will be a good starting point prior to team roster changes due to offseason transactions and the draft.

The final three projected columns for opponent defenses are for the 2021 season. The higher the rank, the easier the projected schedule.

Each column below can be sorted in either ascending or descending order.
