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.
White is a must-start. However, keep in mind that containing opposing receivers is something the Cincinnati defense usually does well. UPDATE 9/12/14: White (knee) was limited in Friday practice. He is listed as PROBABLE and will start as usual.
When healthy in 2013, White produced at a high level. Too bad those times were few and far between. The Falcons are confident that White can produce at a high level going forward as they have already talked about wanting to sign White to an extension. Playing next to Julio Jones will extend White's fantasy-useful years as he'll be seeing a lot more single-coverage. Look for White to be greatly undervalued come draft day. Use that to your advantage.
Just a quick story for the Falcons fans.
I heard that Alge Crumpler - in the the year before he left the Falcons - was going to be at the Perimeter Mall Macy's doing autographs one day, so I picked up my son and headed over there to see him. We ...
Not a Falcons fan (and I see this forum has not been visited much recently), but I think Falcons fans should pound the drums for their old uniforms (early Vick era) and Falcon logo back before this new stadium is completed.
That old uniform was ...
I see some of you are using Matt Ryan's GTFO my field gif. Check this one out:

Positives "Roddy White confirms the Falcons plan a more aggressive aerial attack with the offense running through Matt Ryan this season". I think Michal Turner may be wearing down some, so there's going to be more balls in the air in Atlanta. Roddy White led the NFL with 179 targets last year. Couldn't pass him up at the 15th overall pick in a PPR. Being an Atlanta native, I get to catch all of Roddy's games and he's a lot more dynamic than he gets credit for. Matt Ryan sees it too. Negatives Julio Jones could possibly take some targets away from White, but I think he'll take some coverage off him too. Draft Strategy I was planning to go RB/RB to start this draft, but I had Knowshon Moreno in my sights in the third or fourth round, so when White fell to me at 15 overall in a PPR, I pounced. I'm SOOO glad I used my first round pick on a RB instead of shooting for White/C. Johnson/Fitzgerald too early. (Contributed by: datacore)
