I stumbled upon this graph showing the decrease in specific thrust (Thrust by Power) in relation to velocity, for a Schuebeler EDF:


enter image description here

(Is this a good example for EDF thrust reduction with airspeed, in general?)

The main question I have is how would the decrease with speed for a fixed-pitch propeller compare to the EDF decrease? Any graphs to illustrate?

(ignoring the initial increase of thrust for cruise -fixed-pitch props)
