Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF 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.
The Colts defense is not a fantasy option. During the last month, Indianapolis has averaged an anemic 1.5 sacks and 1.3 forced turnovers per game. In that same time frame, the Houston offense has yielded an average of two sacks per outing and turned the ball over an average of 1.5 times per contest.
Ex-Ravens D.C. Chuck Pagano has his fingerprints all over this defense. Just as Buddy Ryan will be attempting to get his young players gelling in the big apple, Pagano will be doing likewise with his incoming vets. “Baby steps” for Indy, but it's difficult to say the defensive reclamation project isn't trending in the right direction.
