Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB 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.
RGIII should be sat in most instances where you have a viable backup. He's been flat out miserable the past month or so as the offense just can't seem to fight their way out of a paper bag. Kansas City will be treating this like a playoff game too as they try to stay in step with the Broncos.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft entered the league with super-lofty expectations, but Griffin was as good as advertised. On his way to earning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors, the dual-threat RGIII shattered Cam Newton’s 2011 single-season rushing record for a rookie quarterback with 815 yards and racked up seven rushing scores. And Griffin was far more productive than expected as a passer, completing a sparkling 65.6 percent of his throws with 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Pierre Garcon stepped up as RGIII’s favorite receiver, and the Washington triggerman spread his passes around to receivers that didn’t have the last name Garcon. The Redskins, however, elected not to upgrade Griffin’s receiver corps during the offseason with the hopes that Fred Davis will emerge as a second receiving option. While there are no mysteries about Griffin’s skills, his playing status for Week 1 is a question mark. Griffin shredded his right knee (torn ACL and torn PCL) during Washington’s playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks and had to undergo reconstructive surgery. At last check, RGIII’s rehab was on schedule, but you’ll have to monitor his playing status throughout the preseason. If you draft Griffin, make sure you acquire a very good backup for insurance. Since he is coming off knee surgery, Griffin may run less and throw more.
