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.
The Jaguars can get after the quarterback (tied for second in the NFL with 19 sacks), but that is the only thing this unit does well. On the season, Jacksonville has allowed 30.8 points per game and has amassed just four takeaways. By the way, the Jaguars have racked up just one takeaway since Week 2. This defense is a weak play as usual.
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.
