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.
Grimes' status as Foster's handcuff is strongly in question. He carried the ball just three times last week, operating behind both Arian Foster and Alfred Blue, who toted the rock 11 times. Fantasy owners should closely watch Houston's backfield pecking order.
Back on December 19th, Grimes signed a 3-year deal with the Texans leading to him getting the start in Week 17. Grimes is now the No. 2 back in Houston as the Texans have released veteran Andre Brown. He'll have to fend off rookie Alfred Blue for the right backup the injury-prone Arian Foster. The battle for the No. 2 should be a fluid situation so don't overspend to Grimes.
