Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE 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 future Hall of Famer hit pay dirt last week, but that was only Gonzalez’s second visit to the end zone in his last eight games. The Packers defense has yielded the fourth-fewest fantasy points to the tight end position during the last month. Consider Gonzalez (toe) a solid fantasy TE2 this week. UPDATE 12/6: Gonzalez (toe) has been limited in practice all week, and he is listed as QUESTIONABLE. However, Gonzalez has been playing with the bum toe for the last few weeks, and he is expected to suit up as usual. Double check Gonzalez’s playing status Sunday morning just as a precaution.
Many fantasy owners wrote off Tony Gonzalez entering the 2012 season, but by the end of the year those same owners were kicking themselves. The 37-year-old posted his best season since joining the Atlanta Falcons in 2009, reeling in over 90 passes, racking up over 900 yards and finding the end zone eight times. That production was good enough for a third-place fantasy finish among tight ends. Yes, his age is a concern, but to this point Gonzalez hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.
