Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB 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.
A year ago, the Falcons had rambled non-stop about their plans to use the 5-foot-6, 196-pound Rodgers as an every-down back. It looks like they badly overestimated his abilities. Last season, Rodgers was solid as a pass-catcher, finishing fourth among all NFL running backs in receptions (53) and eighth in receiving yards (402) to go along with one touchdown grab. However, he was a huge disappointment in the rushing department, compiling just 362 yards and one touchdown on 94 carries (3.9 yards per carry). Rodgers, who has scored four career NFL total touchdowns, is too small to be a consistent between-the-tackles runner, and the third-year pro will slide into a change-of-pace role behind new starting tailback Steven Jackson. Since Jackson is a proven receiving threat, a drop in Rodgers’ pass-catching numbers is likely. If Jackson goes down with an injury, the Falcons would replace him by using Rodgers and Jason Snelling in a committee. Overall, Rodgers has only low-end depth value in PPR leagues.
