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.
The Jaguars' top receiving threat has been slowed by a hamstring injury during the preseason and didn't look healthy in game action. Assuming Shorts is healthy enough to suit up, he is a risky play as a flex or low-end No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Shorts may not be the Jaguars most talented wide receiver, but he is their most dependable which is quite disappointing since he has yet to play all 16 games in a season in his short three-year career. Jaguars' general manager Dave Caldwell has stated that he'd be surprised if Justin Blackmon were allowed to play in 2014 and that they're proceeding as if they'll be without him for the upcoming season. That leaves Shorts as the undisputed No. 1 wide receiver in Jacksonville as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. Look for Shorts to have more room to roam this season as the Jaguars signed running back Toby Gerhart in the hopes of creating a power running game that will demand a defense's attention. The addition of rookies Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson should help Shorts as defenses will have to respect these two talented rookies. Although Chad Henne will start the season under center, don't be surprised to see rookie Blake Bortles takeover sometime later in the season possibly putting a damper on Shorts' value.
