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.
Did Schaub play with an undisclosed injury during the closing weeks of the 2012 season? He and the Texans say no. But it would explain why Schaub tossed just three scoring strikes in his last six contests played. The strong-armed Schaub is one of the NFL’s more precise and experienced passers, but the run-oriented Texans don’t throw the ball consistently enough to make him a safe weekly fantasy play. Last season, Schaub notched six games with multiple touchdown passes but didn’t toss a scoring strike in five others. Such week-to-week inconsistency from Schaub is normal. Is Houston’s decision to select pro-ready possession receiver DeAndre Hopkins in the first round a signal that we can expect more passing from Schaub? Yes, a notable uptick in Schaub’s overall numbers seems likely, but he still is expected to operate as a game-manager and compile No. 2 fantasy quarterback numbers more times than not. Why would the Texans completely change over to a pass-happy attack when they have the elite Arian Foster and one of the NFL’s best defenses?
