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.
The abundance of work he gets in the passing game helps immensely but the fact is, Vereen doesn't play the integral role in this offense that many forecasted. Denver has been a tough out for many an opposing running back, meaning fantasy owners with a decent alternative are probably benching Vereen this week in some cases.
Vereen raced out of the gate last season with 21 touches in Week 1. Unfortunately, he sustained a wrist injury that would sideline him until Week 11. Upon his return in Week 11 he became a PPR standout. Vereen's value is obviously much higher in PPR leagues as Stevan Ridley figures to do the heavy lifting in the ball carrying area. Something else to keep an eye on, is how Vereen is utilized when tight end Rob Gronkowski is in the line-up as he did a lot of his best work with 'Gronk' out. Vereen has solid RB2 value in PPR leagues and makes for a solid flex option with some upside in standard scoring leagues.
This place is pretty dead. Allow me to liven it up with some random photos.
Jules looking good. Happy Birthday.
This pic on twitter from a few days ago is hilarious ...
Can any NE homers tell me what the former genius Belichick is up to? They continue to release/cut players in the secondary, while Dowling is headed to the IR list. I realize they have the worst ranked pass defense in the league, but that doesn't ...
I'm over it. It's time for him to go. Will be trying this week to trade him for a wr on a bye week. I realize that Hernandez might start opening him up after the good game, but I just don't think that it will be enough. No Moss, no deep ...
