Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the LB 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.
Hawthorne was a quietly important part of an improved Saints defense in 2013, making 15 starts for New Orleans, with 91 total tackles and three sacks. However, as Michelle Bryton of Bleacher Report pointed out, 'In its analysis of New Orleans' depth chart, Pro Football Focus notes that inside linebacker is the only position on the roster where both starters earned a below-average grade. It's not that they are poor inside linebackers when compared to their peers, but rather the position isn't one of the strongest on New Orleans' depth chart.' Bryton continued, 'Hawthorne, who the Saints initially brought in to start but who was hindered by injuries, also missed a high number of tackles with 11.' Throw in a 57th-place IDP finish from Hawthorne last year, and thanks but no thanks.
Ok, so i drafted Mark Ingram off the depth chart that said he was RB1, but have seen other depth charts that have him RB3. Which is correct?! both had Sproles as RB2 but where does Pierre Thomas fall into the mix of things?!...
