Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR 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.

Cotchery's 2013 stats are a prime example of why you don't just take someone's numbers and extrapolate them over more playing time. Do you really think that if Cotchery catches 69 passes this season that he'll score 15 touchdowns? Yeah, neither do we.

How do you guys feel about Steve Smith this weekend? The way Moore played and seeing as how a rookie could play this week would you bench Smith in favor of Nicks or possibly Bowe in a ppr format?
Thanks in advance....
