The purpose of the Matchup Tool is to rank NFL teams in terms of fantasy points allowed by position. This tool helps you find and exploit the friendliest defenses to maximize your fantasy scoring each week at each position. We calculate how many fantasy points each NFL defense allows to each of the above positions, then rank them from the most points allowed to the fewest. The teams near the top of each list are the ones giving up the most fantasy points, while those at the bottom of each list allow the fewest. If you have a player with a matchup against one of the teams near the top of the list, chances are you can start that player with confidence.
I’ve added a column showing you the standard deviation for each team’s numbers. If you don’t know what this is, don’t worry. Neither do I. Basically, this gives you an idea how consistent each team is from week to week. The lower the number the more consistent they are, whether it’s a result of their play, their schedule or some combination of the two.
Enjoy the Thanksgiving Day feast of fantasy goodness, reader. Especially if you’re an Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Jordy Nelson, Kevin Smith, or Tony Romo owner.
