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.
The Bears signed Royal to a 3-year, $15 million deal with $10 million guaranteed. The drafting of Kevin White does nothing to diminish Royal's value as the Bears were well aware of their need to draft a wide receiver when they signed Royal. Royal will work out of the slot with Jeffery and White on the outside. This is a slot-man's dream as defenses will need to pay attention to the Bears two elite wide receivers on the outside. Royal also has some history with quarterback Jay Cutler dating back to their days in Denver. And we know how Cutler loves to throw to receivers that he's comfortable with. Royal caught 91 passes as a rookie back in 2008 with Cutler as his quarterback.

But this isn't really fantasy relevant news, except I guess it cuts the Bears' false starts in half. At least. So that's nice.
Starting oline: Omiyale-Williams-Garza-Louis-Webb. Tice said Edwin Williams would have played C for the first team but he's not available until next Thursday.
Carimi is rolling with the 2nd team. That's pretty normal under Lovie--nobody is handed ...
