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.
Although Rodgers wasn’t his usual super-efficient self in 2012 because two of his top receivers missed a combined 12 games due to injuries, the Packers field general still finished as a top-three fantasy passer for the fifth year in a row. The NFL is loaded with franchise quarterbacks, but the 29-year-old Rodgers is playing on a level above all others. The ninth-year pro uses his powerful, accurate arm to pile up gobs of stats in Green Bay’s aggressive pass-heavy offense while masterfully utilizing a deep mega-talented receiver corps that includes Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley. During the last two years, Rodgers averaged 288 passing yards and 2.7 touchdown passes per game, and he has compiled an 84:14 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Unlike most pocket passers, Rodgers will rack up some occasional fantasy points with his legs, but he won’t tuck it and run as often as Cam Newton, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson usually do. Overall, Rodgers is one of the safest choices available, and he should be the first quarterback selected in all drafts.
