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.
All Manning did in his first season back from neck surgery was nearly duplicate his 2010 season numbers and new Denver single-season franchise records in passing yards and touchdown passes. Granted, the 37-year-old Manning has lost a little juice on his deep ball, but No. 18 is still an extremely accurate and productive pocket passer. If you disregard Manning’s neck surgery season (2011), he has thrown for an average of 4,383 yards and 32 touchdowns per year since 2006. Surrounded by a talented supporting cast – Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, rookie Monte Ball and Ronnie Hillman – Manning looks primed for another productive season. The Broncos do an excellent job of protecting the four-time NFL MVP (he was sacked just 21 times), so the chances of Manning reinjuring his neck are remote.
