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.
Daryl Washington was fantasy's top linebacker in 2012, but it's been nothing but bad news in the offseason. A four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The possibility of an even longer one after an assault arrest. The departure of aggressive defensive coordinator Ray Horton. The arrival of stiffer tackle competition in Karlos Dansby. Add it all up, and while Washington is a very talented player the odds of a significant IDP regression are pretty danged good.
