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.
The departure of Ahmad Bradshaw has cleared the way for Brown to be the “thunder” to David Wilson’s “lightning.” Brown quickly burst onto the 2012 fantasy football scene by amassing 13-71-1 and 20-113-2 rushing lines, respectively, in two early-season contests. Playing mainly as a goal-line back, Brown rolled up eight rushing touchdowns and 385 rushing yards on 73 carries (5.3 yards per rush) before a broken leg landed him on season-ending injured reserve in late November. The powerfully built Brown (6-foot, 227 pounds) is considered a very good between-the-tackles runner with good-but-not-great speed. Although the G-Men didn’t use him heavily in the passing game, the fifth-year pro is a very capable receiver. If you draft Wilson, make sure you lock up Brown as an insurance policy. There are credible rumors that Brown’s No. 2 role in the backfield could be much larger than expected, so keep an eye on how the Giants divvy up the touches between Brown and Wilson during the preseason. New York head coach Tom Coughlin has preferred using a somewhat balanced two-headed backfield in the past.
