One key to fantasy football success comes from looking at strength of schedule

It shouldn't be the only way you build a winning squad Youth Quandre Diggs Jersey , but matchups help make sure you're playing meaningful games in December rather than looking ahead to baseball.Based on the NFL's scheduling formula, the Houston Texans enter the regular season with the easiest docket. Houston's opponents for 2018 had a combined .453 winning percentage last season. That alone has been a reason why quarterback Deshaun Watson has climbed into the top 40 picks in most fantasy drafts, and is also a cause of renewed hope in running back Lamar Miller. The Texans play each of the five teams that made the first six picks in this year's NFL draft.A healthy J.J. Watt extends into the deeper phase of fantasy drafts, especially if Watt returns to the Hall of Fame-caliber player he had been from 2012-15. Houston's defense has been among the first six taken off fantasy draft boards and would be a bargain of sorts should Watt re-emerge as the game's best defender.Another team with a beneficial schedule is the loaded Steelers offense, which will play a schedule of opponents with a .477 winning percentage. Anyone in position to draft either running back Le'Veon Bell or receiver Antonio Brown now has more fodder, while receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster_who also has risen draft boards this month_sits on the outer edge of being a top 35-40 selection.Looking for easier schedules can also help when seeking a sleeper pick. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota flies under the radar yet could be fantasy gold as Tennessee has the second-easiest schedule (.465). Wideout Mike Williams' appeal is bolstered by the Chargers and their 24th-ranked docket (.480), while the Broncos' defense has the chance to return to their dominant ways with a schedule tied for 25th (.477).On the flip side, those looking at Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford should tread lightly, as Detroit has the second-toughest schedule (.535). A schedule with a .523 winning percentage (tied for fifth-highest) is enough to slow down the lofty talk of a Browns revival, along with requiring a second look at the likes of receiver Josh Gordon and running back Carlos Hyde.Again, strength of schedule isn't a be-all, end-all when considering a player. The Packers have the league's toughest schedule (.539), but Aaron Rodgers is consistently the first quarterback off the board http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/aut ... uin-jersey , while the bevvy of offensive talent the Saints have stockpiled will still go high despite their third-toughest schedule.OSUNA CLOSING AGAINControversial closer Roberto Osuna is now the full-time stopper for the Astros after earning his first save for the World Series champions on Wednesday. The decision to elevate him in the ninth inning coincides with Houston snapping out of a funk to take two of three in a critical series against the Mariners, leaving Houston one game ahead of Oakland in the American League West.The combination of his devastating arsenal and the potential for high-leverage situations could see him approach double digits in saves along with enhancing the strikeout category by season's end.RASKY BUSINESSBruins goalie Tuukka Rask may no longer be a top-five player at his position, but don't expect regression this season despite his 5-7 record and .903 save percentage in the postseason.Rask enters 2018-19 with five straight 30-win seasons and while his save percentage has crested since his .930 mark in 2013-14, he remains a reliable net-minder who could become a value pick if he dips past the 80th overall pick in fantasy drafts. We’ve been doing the Song of the Game for a minute now, and I’ve got to wonder each time we put together these playlists as to just how jarring the attitude can go week-to-week once it’s all said and done. The Lions, for the past two seasons and change, have been incredibly inconsistent, unable to put together a standardized performance that we can easily quantify. The season is half done and we’re still going to be talking about how we don’t know what this team is.It’s fun, isn’t it? I know that you might think “fun” would be just to win all the time, and that’d be pretty neat, I suppose. But barring such a possibility, at least it’s a roller coaster and not a sand trap. Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks Song of the Game: “Special” by GarbageI thought you were specialI thought you should knowBut I’ve run out of patienceI’ve run out of commentsI’m tired of the violenceI couldn’t care lessBut you know what? I can’t fault a fan if they’re getting a little weary of the ups-and-downs. After a while some sort of picture is supposed to form of this team, and each week when you think the Lions have a run game or the ability to create pressure on a quarterback it just whispers and vanishes Marvin Jones Jr Jersey , like it didn’t even exist to begin with.Each time you think this team is special, they remind you, very clearly, they’re nothing of the sort.What a thrill.I’d say some fans have lost patience for sure if they’re talking about trading Matthew Stafford for a handful of picks. Thankfully, I wrote about this exact scenario not long ago.Anyway, as the dek says, just be grateful I didn’t pick the Australian national anthem after what Michael Dickson did to the Lions. Oh, you’d have thought I’d pick Men at Work? That song is lame. You’re lame for thinking it. Get outta here.Song of the Game is a weekly column during the season. We’ll use a song to describe our feeling or the Lions’ performance from the previous game. At the end of the year, we’ll have a complete Spotify playlist telling the story of the Lions’ 2018 season. You can check out the 2017 playlist here, and our explanations for our choices here.
