Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB 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.
With often-injured Michael Vick (13 missed games since 2010) expected to start, the Eagles wisely decided to keep Foles in the fold as an insurance policy. Philadelphia’s 2011 third-round pick played in seven games (six season-ending starts) in place of the injured Vick, throwing for an average 243 yards and one touchdown per contest. The competitive Foles displayed a strong arm, but, like many rookies, he was mistake prone. Foles also isn’t known for his scrambling ability, which will limit him in new head coach Chip Kelly’s up-tempo offense. If Foles starts for whatever reason, he is a low-end fantasy QB2.
