Sometimes in the heat of the draft and in the rush of player news, we tend to overlook x-factors that can result in a substantial benefit to your fantasy football team.  One of these x-factors is a fantasy football 2014 strength of schedule analysis, which is exactly what the Docs have dished out. You can use this information to help give your team a little edge during both the regular season and fantasy playoffs by selecting offensive players for your fantasy football team that play for NFL teams that face multiple cupcake defenses (designated by teams at the top of this list).

In addition to our free fantasy strength of schedule tables, we strongly recommend you consider utilizing our Fantasy Football Draft Software and Fantasy Football Player Rankings. This will put you in the best possible position to have a very successful fantasy football draft:

In order to present the information in the most user-friendly format, we have created a pop-up window showing the entire fantasy football offensive total (run & pass) 2014 strength of schedule over the full NFL season. The values provided in the table show the fantasy point boost on a per game basis (denoted in a green box) or reduction on a per game basis (denoted in a red box) that a fantasy total offense would receive that week based on a statistical analysis of their opponent for the 2014 season (using a standard performance scoring system). Values denoted in a white box indicate no significant effect either positively or negatively for that team defense that week. So for example, a value of +3.75 in a "Fantasy Offensive Total Strength of Schedule" table means that on average, a fantasy total offense is predicted to score +3.75 fantasy points (green box) above their baseline value that week based on their opponent for that week. The table isn't designed to be an absolute measure, but it is designed to be a relative measure to help expose total offenses with favorable schedules (load of green boxes) for the upcoming 2014 season based on the best information we have available to us prior to the start of the NFL season.  You can use this information to help select sleeper team offenses with favorable match-ups throughout the year, or you can use it to put together a "Fantasy Total Offense by Committee" by selecting offenses with the most favorable match-ups each week (denoted by the largest value given in a green highlighted cell for that week).  Aggregate values are also provided to show fantasy total offenses that have the most favorable schedule during the regular season (weeks 1 - 13), fantasy playoffs (14- 16), and total season (weeks 1 - 17).

Word to the wise:  
It is not recommended to base your entire fantasy football draft solely on this list and start selecting later round players in earlier rounds of your draft due to a favorable strength of schedule; however, it can be a nice tool to use when trying to decide between two seemingly equivalent players or in the later rounds of your draft to increase the probability of a successful late round grab. As a general guideline, a favorable regular season schedule should only account for no more than 10% of a player's value when ranking them.
