Maurice Jones-Drew Week 15 Fantasy Update: Jaguars Running Back Has Productive Night In Blowout Loss To Atlanta

The NFL's leading rusher was coming off a career day on the field and for his fantasy owners, scoring four touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. He did not have the same success finding the end zone in Jacksonville's blowout loss on Thursday, but Maurice Jones-Drew still had a very productive night. Once again, he was the lone bright spot in an anemic offensive performance from the Jaguars.

Jones-Drew finished with 112 yards on just 17 carries, breaking a 43 yarder in the first half that was one of Jacksonville's few positive offensive plays. In the air, MJD caught three balls for 30 yards receiving. At the end of the first half, it appeared Jones-Drew had injured his ankle as he limped off the field and headed to the locker room early for treatment. To the delight of his fantasy owners everywhere, he would return in the second half with his ankle heavily taped and finish off another productive night.
