Below, you'll find next week's Schedule Grid (green = easy, red = difficult), as well as Ease Rankings for each of the league's team defenses.

Ease Rankings are calculated by comparing opponent production data with their season averages, and are not simply a straight team-by-team comparison. For this reason, a larger statistical number does not automatically equate with a larger Ease number. All values are assigned by way of z-scores.
