Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF 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.
Where have the Monsters of the Midway gone? Far away from the Windy City apparently, because in 2014 the Bears were a hot mess on defense. 30th in total defense. 30th in pass defense. 31st in scoring defense. And barely inside the top 25 fantasy defenses in most scoring systems. There are wholesale changes in store in 2015, including a move to the 3-4 under new coordinator Vic Fangio. However, with the Bears set to open the season against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, we'll believe the Bears are better when we see it.
