Here we go with our first run of Football Outsiders team projections for 2017; this year, ESPN asked me to run them both before and after the draft. (The variable for adding defensive talent from the draft is calculated by using half the draft pick value each team currently has.) Bad news for Pats haters: New England ranks No. 32 in projected schedule. Controversial findings: Both L.A. teams in playoff contention, Denver near the bottom of the league, and a big rebound from Arizona. (I personally question the system on that last one.)

The Saints were 2016's oldest team, and the Rams were once again the youngest. Are more rookies starting than ever before in the NFL? 2016 was the youngest season we have tracked yet.
