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.
Thrown into the fire during his 2012 rookie season, the then-28-year-old Weeden played solidly overall. He set a Browns rookie record for passing yards (3,385) while amassing a modest 14:17 touchdown-pass-to interception ratio. But Weeden’s week-to-week fantasy production lacked consistency, especially late in the year. New Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski and new offensive coordinator Norv Turner both have proven track records of developing quarterbacks and offenses. If Weeden truly has NFL-caliber talent, Chudzinski and Turner should have no trouble molding him into an elite passer. However, considering Weeden’s age – he will turn 30 in October – this looks like a make-or-break season for him with a new coaching regime calling the shots. Weeden, a former minor league baseball pitcher, has a very strong and accurate arm. The second-year pro will face a training camp challenge from veteran Jason Campbell, but Weeden remains the overwhelming favorite to get the nod in Week 1. He has some promising young targets – Josh Gordon and Greg Little – and veteran slot receiver Davone Bess is in the fold, too. If Weeden can elevate his game, the Browns triggerman would be part of the QB2 conversation.
