Strength of Schedule
Strength of Schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF position. The easiest rating is 1 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the most difficult rating is 10 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
Former Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith is directing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense now (hint: revenge motive), and Matt Ryan tied for the third most picks in the NFL last season (hint: self-inflicted mistakes). Those are the two main reasons to consider Tampa Bay this week. The Buccaneers, however, look like a mediocre all-around play.
2 Sacks, 1 Ints, 1 Fumbles

Season Projections
After hitting the defense hard both in free agency and the draft, new Tampa DC Mike Smith tried to explain to the team's website what the Buccaneers are looking to accomplish. 'What we're trying to do is we're trying to put together a defense that doesn't have 11 starters, said Smith. 'We're trying to have somewhere between 15 and 16 guys that we consider starters on our defense. It's a long season. You've got to have guys that can rush inside and a lot of our defensive ends - I think - in our sub package will be able to move down inside and that's the thing that we're looking for. We're looking for as much flexibility that we possibly can. To be able to scheme against our opponents, to be able to be prepared for injuries because they are going to happen, so you have to have multiple guys prepared at different positions.' The pieces would appear to be in place, and if the Bucs play up to their ceiling defensively this is a unit that could be a nice late-draft value. That they'll do that, however, is no certainty.
