Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the LB 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 Chicago Bears' defense was a parody of its usual formidable self in 2013, due in large part to the absence of linebacker Lance Briggs for half the season. However, the 33-year-old was a top 25 fantasy option at his position, and posted IDP LB3 numbers the two seasons before that. The Bears were very active in free agency on the defensive front but didn't do much there or in the draft to address the linebackers. That leaves more than a little uncertainty for the Bears at the position, which should mean more than a few tackle opportunities and at least high-end IDP LB3 production for Briggs. Assuming, that is, that he stays healthy.
I don't know if anyone reads this sub forum anymore. Last post was in December.
But this isn't really fantasy relevant news, except I guess it cuts the Bears' false starts in half. At least. So that's nice.
Starting oline: Omiyale-Williams-Garza-Louis-Webb. Tice said Edwin Williams would have played C for the first team but he's not available until next Thursday.
Carimi is rolling with the 2nd team. That's pretty normal under Lovie--nobody is handed ...
