We gave everyone these stats way back in February this year.  But we figured we would bring them back for your Week One start/sit decisions.  The following links go back to the previous articles posted. 

Fantasy points allowed were calculated as follows one point per 25 passing yards, one point per 10 rushing and receiving yards, six points all TD's, and -two points all turnovers.

The posts are organized from most fantasy friendly to least fantasy friendly by position.
