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 maestro of the pass-happy Green Bay offense was on pace to throw for 5,008 yards and 34 touchdowns before a broken left collarbone sidelined him for virtually the entire second half of last season. Is the 30-year-old Rodgers injury prone? No. Prior to his injury-wrecked 2013 campaign, Rodgers had missed just one regular-season game because of an injury since 2008. If the biggest fantasy bust at the quarterback position burned you last year, don't hold a grudge. The 10th-year pro is a lock for a nice bounce-back season. As usual, Rodgers will rack up gobs of passing yards and scoring strikes by masterfully utilizing elite targets Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Jarrett Boykin, who impressed in injury fill-in duties last season, replaces the departed James Jones (Raiders) as the team's new No. 3 receiver. At tight end, Andrew Quarless and Brandon Bostick are the frontrunners to replace Jermichael Finley (neck surgery). Don't worry about Boykin and the new tight end duo, Rodgers can make any competent receiver look like a star. By the way, the Packers have hinted they plan to use Eddie Lacy more as a receiver out of the backfield. The mobile Rodgers will pad his fantasy production with occasional rushing yards and rushing scores, but he won't tote the rock as often as Cam Newton or Russell Wilson. Rodgers will finish as a top-three fantasy quarterback for the fourth time in the last five years.
