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.
If Rice could stay healthy and be targeted like a legit No. 1 wide receiver he could put up beastly numbers. But, with Seattle loving the ground game, Rice only received 80 targets on the season despite playing in all 16 games. So you’re probably asking yourself why we have an overly optimistic projection of 65/925/6 even with the addition of Percy Harvin. Well, we’re banking on the continued development of quarterback Russell Wilson. Coach Pete Carroll did not take the shackles off of Wilson until midway through the 2012 season and we expect even more from Wilson in 2013.
