Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR 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.
Our first rookie wide receiver shows up at No. 26 and to no one’s surprise it’s Tavon Austin. We have Austin penciled in for 80 receptions, 1,150 receiving yards and seven touchdowns but that doesn’t include touches that he’ll pick up out of the backfield. Last year at West Virginia Austin rushed the ball 72 times for 643 yards and three touchdowns. While we believe Austin could produce higher numbers, the fact that Rams head coach, Jeff Fisher, plans to use Austin on special teams has us a bit worried.
