Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
For the first time in his career Owen Daniels of the Houston Texans cracked the top five tight ends in fantasy football in 2012, spurred on by 62 catches for 716 yards and six scores. However, fantasy owners who chase last year’s stats with Daniels will likely wind up disappointed. Before last year the 30-year old hadn’t finished inside the top 10 since 2008, which is also the last season in which Daniels made it through the year without missing at least one game. Owen Daniels is what he is – a low-end fantasy starter in 12-team leagues. Don’t draft him to be more than that.
