Today's ESPN Insider feature looks at the teams with the toughest and easiest remaining schedules. Rather than simply using average DVOA of remaining opponents, we ranked schedules by going through game-by-game to figure out how often an average (0.0%) DVOA team would be expected to win each game, accounting for both the opponent and whether the game was on the road or at home.

This ESPN feature looks at the divisional races using our playoff odds simulation. There don't look to be a lot of competitive races this year, but there's a good one between the Falcons and Panthers, plus the scrum in the NFC East, and whatever you call the mess in the AFC South -- where 10 percent of our simulations end up with a 6-10 team winning the division.

This article counts down the top ten teams that have a shot at the top pick in 2016. Although no team has established itself as the clear favorite to pick No. 1, there is a fairly significant gap between Lions and the rest of the league. It's not because Detroit is the worst team in the league; our ratings currently put them ahead of Houston and San Francisco. But at 1-6, the Lions are tied for the NFL's worst record, and their schedule gets tougher the rest of the way, partly because of the split between home and road games.

At ESPN Insider, our Saturday column looks at DraftKings matchups for the late slate only. That's just four games this week. Some of our favorite matchups include Philip Rivers, Jonathan Stewart and Steve Smith. We also really like Antonio Gates and John Brown, but both have serious injury situations to monitor right up to game time. Ladarius Green could be a steal as a late add if Gates cannot go.
