Based on the winning percentage of the teams on the schedule Funchess plays this year (103 - 89 - 0 0.536%) will be more difficult compared to the teams on the schedule from last season (92 - 116 - 0 0.442%), and last season's teams gave up more points (5,055) compared to this season's teams (4,276) so this could mean less fantasy points.
Performance Against Sub 500 Teams:
