Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the PK 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.
The resurgent Colts offense should provide Vinatieri with plenty of scoring chances against a Houston defense that allowed an average of 7.5 points per game to enemy kickers during the last four weeks.
[Vinatieri is getting up there in age but he showed last year he still has a strong leg by making 17 of his 26 field goals from 40 yards and beyond. While the Colts are an offense on the rise, Vinatieri did miss seven times in 2012. At this point in his career Vinatieri is more valuable as a fill-in option rather than an every-week starter.]
