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.
If there is one receiver who can overtake Megatron for the No. 1 spot it’s Bryant. During the second half of 2012 Bryant finally put it all together and posted monster numbers. In the final eight games of 2012 he had 50 receptions for 879 yards and 10 touchdowns. Cowboys QB Tony Romo has given up golf this offseason and has decided to focus on football which means good things are in store for the ‘Boys passing game in 2013.
Positives What a step forward this kid took! He is ready for prime time, has a good QB, and should build on the 6 TDs in 12 games from his rookie year. Negatives Romo at QB is both a blessing and a curse, as while he is the best option to be throwing him the ball, he also has great chemistry with Mile Austin. Draft Strategy If you take a QB early, you also need to target upside as opposed to consistency. I could have gone average RB, but if Bryant plays like a first rounder, whoever else I have at RB taken later will do just fine. Of course, if he slumps, that RB choice I did not make will look much better in hindsight! (Contributed by: Pat_Smith)
Round 4, Pick 5
Positives Breakout-year potential, plays in a potent/pass-happy offense, showed flashes of WR1 performance Negatives Not much chemistry built up with Romo, WR2 on the depth chart in Dallas with plenty of other options, Unproven over the course of a full season Draft Strategy It's a risky pick at 4.05. I like his upside more than I liked the upside of the WRs available (Boldin, S.Johnson, Colston). I'm not in love with this pick. (Contributed by: gregor7777)
