Fantasy Football Strength of Schedule: Minnesota Vikings

Fantasy football strength of schedules help fantasy owners determine which teams and players have favorable (or unfavorable) schedules for the 2021 NFL season.

Based on each team's scheduled opponents through Week 17, which will be championship round in most fantasy leagues now that the NFL has adopted an 18-week schedule, we have tallied the average fantasy points allowed by each of their opponents to the position.

While strength of schedule should not be the sole factor in determining who to draft/add, it could help potentially break a tie between two players that you may view as comparable.

Fantasy SOS by positions:

In addition to breaking down fantasy football strengths of schedule by position, we have compiled SOS pages by team so you can see a week-to-week breakdown of their schedules.
