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.
Consider the Buccaneers defense a weak play. During the last month, Tampa Bay averaged 1.8 sacks and 2.8 forced turnovers per outing. In that same time frame, the Buffalo offense gave up an average of 1.33 sacks per contest and turned the ball over an average of one time per game.
On paper this could be a top 10 defense with some much needed help added to the secondary (Revis, Goldson). Sadly, there is just too much uncertainty on a unit that has regularly underwhelmed finishing in the bottom half of rankings for 3 straight seasons. If Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers can play a whole season (a combined 19 games missed in just their first two seasons)? If Darrelle Revis is fully fit? A, this is one of the biggest risk:rewards out there and could pay dividends if you “Swing for the fences”. Just make sure there is a “Plan B”.
