Fantasy Questions: How should I consider strength of schedule?

Hey Charlie, Mac and Dennis!
Big fan of the show from across the pond. My question is regarding Strength of Schedule or ‘SOS’. How much do you guys take into consideration the SOS of a player when setting your rankings? For example, I have Arian Foster high in my ranking similar to you guys, but a reason for this is that the Texans have the 3rd best schedule for running backs weeks 1-16 (he is also 2nd for playoff weeks 14-17). However, I’m sure I would still have Foster very high if he had the worst schedule. Of course I would consider applying SOS to middle round RB targets but do you apply it to your studs? Is it worth bearing in mind that the schedules for some of the highest ranked players are the worst? Eg. RB: Forte 26th, Lacy 27th, L Bell 28th, Lynch 30th, Hill 32nd. WR: Nelson/Cobb 31st, A Brown 32nd.
Thanks guys! (Apologies for the long question)
