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.
After spending four seasons holding a clipboard for Drew Brees down in the Bayou, Daniel will backup Alex Smith. Some think new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid wants to groom Daniel as a future starter, but the former Saint is not expected to threaten Smith’s job this season. Daniel attempted only nine career regular-season passes as Brees’ understudy. However, in four 2012 preseason appearances, the average-armed Daniel went 46-for-64 for 538 yards and four touchdowns against two interceptions. If he ends up starting for whatever reason, Daniel has only high-end fantasy QB3 appeal.
