Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Michael plays this year (107 - 85 - 0 0.557%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (108 - 100 - 0 0.519%), and last season's teams gave up more points (4,565) compared to this season's teams (4,376) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
Michael surprisingly had a higher fantasy avg (10.20 pts/game) against winning teams last year compared to teams with a losing record (2.13 pts/game), so with a more difficult schedule for the upcoming season it could be an indication of a higher fantasy average.
