2021 Fantasy Football RB Strength of Schedule (Non-PPR)

Fantasy football strength of schedule helps fantasy managers determine which teams and players have favorable (or unfavorable) schedules for the 2021 NFL season.

Based on each team's scheduled opponents for 2021, we have tallied the average fantasy points allowed by each of their opponents to the position.

[Note: Our SOS includes all 17 opponents given the expectation that the NFL will implement a 17-game regular-season schedule in 2021.]

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