Based on prior performance, a change in roster skilled positions projects a lower fantasy average of (0.44) pts per game for Folk. At the Quarterback position: Ryan Fitzpatrick (2015 Avg: 20.45 Pts/Game) has left the team and Geno Smith (2015 Avg: 22.65 Pts/Game) is now starting. At the Running Back/Full Back position: Chris Ivory (2015 Avg: 11.06 Pts/Game) has left the team and Matt Forte (2015 Avg: 11.63 Pts/Game) has been added to the starting lineup. At the Tight End position: Jeff Cumberland (2015 Avg: .64 Pts/Game) has left the team and Jace Amaro has been added to the starting lineup.

Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Folk plays this year (103 - 89 - 0 0.536%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (87 - 121 - 0 0.418%), and last season's teams gave up more points (5,111) compared to this season's teams (4,166) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Folk surprisingly had a higher fantasy avg (10.50 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (7.40 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could be an indication of a higher fantasy average.
