Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE 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.
Graham is a must-start as always. The Panthers have allowed the fewest fantasy points to enemy tight ends during the last month, but they allowed Rob Gronkowski (Patriots) to amass a 5-59-1 line back in Week 11.
Although Jimmy Graham’s numbers fell off considerably from 2011’s gaudy totals, the fourth-year pro was still fantasy football’s top tight end last year, propelled to that spot by 85 catches for 982 yards and nine touchdowns. Graham is one of the focal points of one of the NFL’s most prolific passing offenses, no tight end has been targeted more over the past two seasons, and there’s no reason to think that Graham won’t once again flirt with over 1,000 receiving yards and double-digit touchdowns in 2013.
