Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR 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 realistic expectations he'll be a solid performer. He hasn't topped 90 receptions since 2010 but is still a great red zone threat. Double digit touchdowns are certainly a possibility again but that's probably best case scenario.
Fitzgerald has failed to eclipse the 1,000 yard mark in back-to-back seasons but did reach double-digit touchdowns for the first time since 2009. The Cardinals offense got off to a slower than expected start while learning Bruce Arian's offense but after a second off-season of digesting the playbook, a significant improvement is expected. The emergence of Andre Ellington as a back capable of making big plays will help keep defenses honest allowing Fitzgerald to operate more feely in the secondary. Fitzgerald really came on in the second half of the season so look for him and Carson Palmer to start 2014 on the same page.
