Targets and TDs Fantasy Football NFL Schedule

The 2022 NFL Draft is complete (certainly check out my 2022 Post NFL Draft piece if you haven’t yet) and now the 2022 NFL Schedule has been released!! If you missed it, take a look at it 2022 NFL Schedule. Another layer or wrinkle has been added as we slowly approach the beginning of the 2022 Fantasy Football Season.

I use strength of schedule for a player as a way to decide on selecting a player after accessing their Ability, Availability, Opportunity and Consistency. It’s certainly not an initial deciding factor if I select a player to my fantasy football team but can be helpful. Plus, it was just released this week and gives those NFL/Fantasy Football conversations a little more groundwork.

Teams with a favorable start to 2022

Just like the NFL, it is great to jump out to a good start in your Fantasy Football Season. You probably can still recover more often (than NFL teams) if you don’t, but a good start is preferred. Below are a few teams that I noticed have some nice/preferred matchups as they start the 2022 NFL season.

  1. Philadelphia EaglesDET, MIN, WAS, JAX, ARI, DAL
  2. Los Angeles ChargersLV, KC, JAX, HOU, CLE, DEN
  3. Indianapolis ColtsHOU, JAX, KC, TEN, DEN, JAX
  4. New Orleans SaintsATL, TB, CAR, MIN, SEA, CLE
  5. Arizona CardinalsKC, LV, LAR, CAR, PHI, SEA
  6. Denver BroncosSEA, HOU, SF, LV, IND, LAC
  7. Cleveland BrownsCAR, NYJ, PIT, ATL, LAC, NE
  8. Los Angeles Rams – BUF, ATL, ARI, SF, DAL, CAR
  9. Washington CommandersJAX, DET, PHI, DAL, TEN, CHI
  10. San Francisco 49ers – CHI, SEA, DEN, LAR, CAR, ATL
  11. Detroit Lions – PHI, WAS, MIN, SEA, NE
  12. Seattle Seahawks – DEN, SF, ATL, DET, NO, ARI

To come up with the above summary I used the information below in regards to teams who have given up the most points last season (along with 4 more years of history). On the 5 year history I was able to highlight the teams on the list that were from the previous years list as well. Some teams stay on for a few years as you will see 🙂

Teams likely to Give Up the Most Points in the 2022 NFL Season

Just a quick snapshot of who I anticipate team wise to give up the most points through the 2022 season. I certainly referenced the history above and mixed in some teams that may not be as strong as they were last year in regards to allowing points.

  1. New York Jets
  2. Detroit Lions
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars
  4. Houston Texans
  5. Atlanta Falcons
  6. Minnesota Vikings
  7. Seattle Seahawks
  8. Las Vegas Raiders
  9. Carolina Panthers
  10. Arizona Cardinals
  11. Kansas City Chiefs
  12. Washington Commanders

Teams Bye Weeks

Along with finding some good matchups please keep in mind when your fantasy football players have their bye week. You don’t need to necessarily draft with your bye week replacement on your team but be aware of when your starters are going to have their bye weeks during the season. You can plan to pick up a week replacement ahead of time (a week or two if able) so please keep the bye weeks in mind as you go through your 2022 Fantasy Football Season.

Bye WeekTeams
6Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Las Vegas Raiders, Tennessee Titans
7Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles
8Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers
9Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers
10Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, New York Jets
11Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
12
13Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers
14Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, Washington Commanders
Always keep in mind where the Bye Week lands especially as you get multiple players at the same position. Again not a determining factor of who to select but something to be aware of.

2022 NFL Schedule Final Thoughts

Now that the 2022 NFL Schedule is out we have a framework set for the NFL and Fantasy Football matchups to anticipate this upcoming year. Certainly consider this as you create your 2022 Fantasy Football teams but don’t forget to consider Ability, Availability, Opportunity and Consistency before their Advantage/Upside – Matchup against a particular team. We have taken another step closer to the start of the 2022 Fantasy Football Season. Who has opportunity for Targets? Who will have the chance for Touchdowns? If you believe a player is in line for either, you know I would be interested in them!
