2013 IDP Strength of Schedule

Look me start off by saying that this 2013 Strength of Schedule guide should only be used directionally. These rankings were developed based off of last year's IDP Points Allowed by Position and obviously team's offenses change (for better or worse) over the course of an off-season through free agent signings, coaching changes, scheme changes, rookie additions, etc.

I prefer to use this tool when I'm stuck between two very similar IDPs during the draft and can't decide which one to choose (i.e. as a tiebreaker). This has worked very well for me in the past and I expect it to continue to work very well in the future.

The IDP scoring system that this grid was based on is listed below:

Default IDP Scoring System
Solo Tackles 1.5
Assists 0.75
Sacks 5
INTs 5
Forced Fumbles 4
Fumble Recoveries 4
Passes Defensed 1.5

Rankings go from 1-32 with 1 being the most favorable schedule for that position and 32 being the least favorable schedule for that position. I've highlighted the top 5 schedules for each position in GREEN and the bottom 5 schedules for each position in RED.

I hope you find this helpful and feel free to suggest any additions to the grid that you may find useful.

***NOTE: Please use a different display name than "Anonymous" when asking advice questions. It gets difficult to discern who I am answering when multiple people post under the same name.

Also, when asking for weekly matchup advice please mention the weekly opponent for each player you are listing. This helps me answer questions more quickly.
In addition, always list your scoring system as my advice will differ depending on the type of system being used.

Lastly, please don't duplicate the same exact post on other pages. We get notified of all comments that are posted and we will make sure to answer questions as quickly as we can. Posting the same question multiple times on different pages just slows the whole process down for everyone.
