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.
Brian Cushing is the type of IDP that drives fantasy owners NUTS. In the two seasons in which he's played 16 games, the fifth-year pro has averaged over 120 total tackles and four sacks a year. The problem is the 15 games Cushing has missed in the other two seasons, including a torn ACL last year. There's top-10 upside and all sorts of risk, but that risk has caused him to fall into LB3 territory in many drafts. He's a Dirty Harry IDP...do you feel lucky?
