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.
Will Flacco flourish in his first full season under new offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell? It looks doubtful. The Super Bowl XLVII MVP historically has been a mediocre regular-season quarterback, and it’s doubtful that will change. The cannon-armed Flacco never has topped 3,817 passing yards or 25 touchdown passes in a season, because the Ravens offense usually runs through Ray Rice whenever possible, and it will again as usual. Flacco’s supporting cast – Torrey Smith, Dennis Pitta and Jacoby Jones – also looks thin. Smith is a great deep threat, but he is a question mark as a go-to wide out. Pitta could emerge as Flacco’s favorite target. And the departure of Anquan Boldin, who was Flacco’s favorite receiver during the playoffs, is a bigger problem than many think. Target Flacco only as a backup.
