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.
If your league doesn't penalize harshly for points allowed, Houston would be a fringe starting option for you. There's no question the Texans have looked dominant during the last month, but they played the struggling offenses of the Tennessee Titans and the New York Jets. Houston also faced a usually productive Cincinnati Bengals offense that sputtered because of a visit from 'Bad Andy.' The Texans should rack up a decent number of points against the New Orleans Saints offense, but you should lower your expectations for J.J. Watt and company this week.
The Texans have one thing on defense that no other team can boast, megastar defensive end J.J. Watt, he of the 78 tackles, 20.5 sacks and four forced fumbles last year. Watt also scored touchdowns on both fumble and interception returns, part of a league-leading five defensive scores by Houston last year. Throw in an NFL-high 34 takeaways and the hope that the Texans will get something this year from 2014 No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, and there's plenty to like for fantasy owners in Houston.
Surprisingly, Mario Williams didn't have his own thread in the Texans room.
