Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB 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.
Dan Herron is no Marshawn Lynch. New England is going to put their corners in man coverage and stack the box to limit his success. Seattle gets Right Tackle Justin Britt back after missing the NFC Championship. If the Seahawks can feed Lynch the ball 20+ times, they'll control the game.
Since joining the Seahawks in 2010, Lynch has been the perfect complement to their run-first offense. Utilizing his no nonsense straight ahead intense running style, Lynch has finished as a top-5 fantasy running back for three consecutive seasons. Despite his head-on hard-charging style, Lynch is deceptively hard for defenses to bring down racking up 2.5 yards after contact last season. Lynch will be 28 when the season begins and has had issues with back spasms in the past, but managed to play all 16 games last season. While he may be spelled from time to time as Seattle looks to get second year running back Christine Michael some work, "Beast Mode" remains the clear No. 1 running back in Seattle. Although, you should expect a drop of between 40-50 touches for Lynch of his 2013 total.
