Schedule Difficulty:
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.
