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.
As strange as it may sound, the quietly improving Jacksonville defense is a low-end starting option. During the last month, the Jaguars allowed 13 offensive points per game. They also racked up 3.3 sacks and 1.3 takeaways per outing. In the same time frame, the Cincinnati Bengals offense scored 20.3 points per contest. The Bengals also allowed 2.0 sacks per game and committed 1.8 turnovers per outing.
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.
