Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the DEF 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.
Consider the Jaguars a streaming option in scoring systems that don't penalize heavily for points allowed. Jacksonville's underrated pass rush (the Jaguars rank third in the NFL in sacks) likely will cause some problems for Eli Manning and New York's shaky offensive line. During the last month, the Jaguars allowed 29 points per game. They also averaged 2.67 sacks and 2.0 takeaways per contest. In the same time frame, the Giants scored 19.8 points per outing while allowing 2.3 sacks and committing 2.3 turnovers per game.
Head coach Gus Bradley has brought some of his old defenders over from his Seattle days with the signings of defensive linemen Chris Clemons and Red Bryant. Their familiarity with the scheme will help to improve the defense but both are past their prime. Steps are definitely being taken to make this a stronger NFL defensive unit but there is still little reason to believe they'll be a fantasy force. It's the lack of big play potential and no real return threat on special teams that leave this defense as a fantasy afterthought.
