Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB 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.
Henne tossed two touchdown passes in each of his last two starts, but he amassed less than 200 passing yards in both contests. Consider Henne a weak play as a low-end fantasy QB2 against a Buffalo defense that yielded an average of only 188 passing yards and 1.33 touchdown passes per game since Week 11.
It looks like Jacksonville has set its sights on upgrading its quarterback position in 2014, so the team will gut it out with Henne and Gabbert for another season. Henne is expected to win a planned preseason quarterback derby between the two. Last season, the sixth-year pro made six season-ending starts in place of the injured Gabbert (10 starts), topping him in passing yards and touchdown tosses. Henne averaged a respectable 253 passing yards and one touchdown pass per start. Unlike Gabbert, Henne is more of a gunslinger and willing to push the ball down the field. If he wins the No. 1 gig, Henne would play with a solid supporting cast that includes the emerging Cecil Shorts, the promising Justin Blackmon, Marcedes Lewis and 2011 NFL rushing champion Maurice Jones-Drew, who is returning from a foot injury. Even if Henne starts all 16 games, he would have just shaky low-end QB2 value. When the Jaguars fall out of playoff contention, the team could give Gabbert and undrafted rookie free-agent Matt Scott some starts.
