Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew agrees

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 05:36:15 -0700

The Oakland Raiders agreed with free-agent RB Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars) on a three-year deal. He's set to take a physical Friday, March 28, and sign the deal later in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew will have to split carries with Darren McFadden, which could keep them both healthy. They also could cancel each other out in fantasy. Jones-Drew has the consistency, but McFadden could have the burst. Monitor this timeshare in camp, but we see both as weak RB3s right now.

Jaguars | Maurice Jones-Drew still thinks he's feature back

Tue, 31 Dec 2013 09:29:15 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew thinks he's still a featured back as he prepares to test the free-agent market this spring. The Jaguars are willing to match any offer another team gives him, but they'd likely have him back in a role in which he's sharing carries more than he ever has in the past. Jones-Drew's 3.4 yards per carry was the worst of his career in 2013. "There are some guys that don't need the offseason. They can just go out there and play ball," Jones-Drew said. "For me, the offseason is critical. I have to be able to train my body to be able to take the pounding that it takes each week, to be able to recover. I've been taking a lot of shots at my legs the last couple of years. I want to be able to get them back in shape and get ready to roll."

Jaguars | Maurice Jones-Drew questionable

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 12:28:46 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is questionable for Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: It seems as though the Jags are leaning toward resting MJD another week. If he doesn't play, Jordan Todman will be the lead back again and could be considered as a flex play against a poor Tennessee Titans run defense.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 18, and he may not return to practice until Friday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: MJD missed last week and will probably be questionable this weekend against the Tennessee Titans. With nothing left to play for, the Jaguars won't be pressured to rush Jones-Drew back. Jordan Todman is a better play in a flex spot in deeper leagues against a Titans team that has been easy to run on this year.
