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.
About a year ago, the Falcons spent the preseason raving about how the 5-foot-6, 196-pound Rodgers could easily handle a heavy three-down back workload. They either lied or they were flat out wrong. Rodgers impressed as a receiver, finishing fourth among all NFL running backs in catches (53) and eighth in receiving yards (402). However, he disappointed in the rushing department, averaging just 3.9 yards per carry. Rodgers simply is too small to be a consistent between-the-tackles runner. The third-year pro will stay in a change-of-pace role behind Steven Jackson. And since Jackson is a proven receiving threat, a drop in Rodgers’ touches seems likely. If Jackson goes down with an injury, the Falcons likely would use Rodgers and Jason Snelling in a committee. Overall, Rodgers has only depth value.
