2023 NFL Power Rankings: Post Free Agency

The 2023 NFL Free Agency is mostly in the books, which means it’s time for the first edition of my 2023 NFL Power Rankings for the upcoming season. I’ve already written about the changing Super Bowl odds landscape and the initial NFL MVP odds, while futures are starting to trickle out with the 2023 season slowly coming into view.

My Power Rankings are designed to be a starting point for point-spread betting between two teams, which will be updated every week once the regular season starts. They take into account recent performances, long-term injuries, coaching, and strength of schedule. These rankings are intended to help predict performances in the present, but they’re not necessarily predictive for the rest of the season. I will take my Power Rankings into account when I make my weekly against-the-spread picks, but I’ll also consider current injury reports, home-field advantage, weather, and other factors that may be relevant.

Example: My top-rated team, the Kansas City Chiefs (7), would be 10.5-point favorites on a neutral field over my worst-rated team, the Arizona Cardinals (-3.5). Using a two-point adjustment for home-field advantage (HFA average was 1.8 points in 2022), the Chiefs would be 12.5-point favorites over the Cardinals at home and 8.5-point favorites over the Cardinals on the road.
