General Stratergy behind this article

Using the fantasy points against courtesy of NFL.com, I go through and assign a point value to each team.  The team that gives up the MOST points to opposing QB’s (MIN) receives a score of 32, while the team that gives up the least points (CAR) receives a score of 1.

Then, going through each teams schedule, I plug in the numerical value, which gives us a rough idea of who has the easiest schedule ahead, and which players could be a let down in the fantasy playoffs.

Here are the updated fantasy points against QB rankings coming out of week 13

MIN 32 ARI 16
DAL 31 CLE 15
JAX 30 BUF 14
TB 29 NE 13
DEN 28 BAL 12
SD 27 STL 11
ATL 26 HOU 10
WAS 25 PIT 9
PHI 24 CHI 8
OAK 23 CIN 7
GB 22 NO 6
NYJ 21 SF 5
NYG 20 TEN 4
IND 19 MIA 3
DET 18 SEA 2
KC 17 CAR 1
