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.
Tony Scheffler actually posted his highest yardage total since 2008 last year, catching over 40 passes for just over 500 yards. However, after finding the end zone six times in 2011, Scheffler scored only one touchdown in 2012. The Lions are hoping for more balance offensively this year after leading the NFL in passing attempts a season ago, and with fewer targets to go around and several players higher in the pecking order, it’s hard to envision Scheffler having much fantasy value barring an injury.
