2016 SOS Adjusted RB Scores

Last week, I reviewed QB fantasy performance in 2016 after adjusting for their strength of schedule (SoS) in standard formats. In this article, I’m going to apply the same method to last year’s RB fantasy scoring (in point-per-reception (PPR) formats).

RB Scoring used: Rushing/Receiving TD = 6 Fantasy Points (FP); 10 Rush/Receiving Yd = 1 FP; Reception = 1 FP; Turnovers = minus 2

Here’s the top 75 RBs. The table includes the actual PPR FP totals and ranks as well as the Strength of Schedule Adjusted (SOSA) FP figures (how this is calculated can be found in the QB article on this topic ). The final column is a percentage (SOSA Factor) that equals the SOSA FP divided by Actual FP. A SOSA Factor of 100% would mean that a player had an exactly average schedule. If the percentage is over 100%, it means he played a harder than average schedule and that his Actual FP understate how well he played. On the other hand, a percentage less than 100% means an RB had an easy schedule and his scoring was inflated.
