Maurice Jones-Drew Fantasy Update: Jaguars Running Back One Yard Short Of 100 Yard Performance

The Jaguars offense was woeful on Sunday afternoon in a 20-13 home loss to the Houston Texans. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew, as is often the case, did provide a bright spot in an ugly performance. The Jags' running back carried the ball 18 times for 99 yards.

The yards on the ground did not tell the whole story for Jones-Drew, as is typically the case. MJD also caught four balls for 67 yards, including a 31 yard scamper on a pass from Blaine Gabbert. While the Jags were held out of the end zone on offense, Jones-Drew fantasy owners have to be pleased with his production both on the ground and in the air. He was the lone positive on offense, in an anemic performance that saw Jack Del Rio bench Gabbert.
