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.
The word “disaster” appropriately sums up Vick’s 2012 campaign. Statistically, it was his worst season since the Eagles triggerman became a full-time starter in 2010. In 10 contests played, Vick turned the ball over 15 times, and he was sacked 28 times while playing behind a reshuffled offensive line that was missing three starters most of the season. In addition, the 33-year-old Vick missed six games due to a concussion. The 10th-year pro has the savvy to operate new head coach Chip Kelly’s up-tempo spread-option offense and will have plenty of weapons at his disposal: LeSean McCoy, Bryce Brown, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Brent Celek and James Casey. Although the mobile Vick is expected to run more than he did in 2012, the Eagles as a team are also expected to run more and pass less. And we all know the 6-foot, 215-pound Vick takes a lot of hits, which is why he has missed 13 games since 2010. As usual, Vick is a high-risk/high-reward fantasy option. Everyone is assuming Vick will start, but keep an eye on second-year pro Nick Foles during the preseason.
