Maurice Jones-Drew Week 14 Fantasy Update: Jaguars Running Back Has Monster Four Touchdown Day In Rout Of Buccaneers

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, the NFL's leading rusher entering Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, had a huge four touchdown day for his fantasy owners. Jones-Drew has been the lone bright spot in a struggling Jaguars' offense this season, but Sunday was a virtuoso performance, scoring twice on the ground and twice through the air. MJD has always been lauded for his versatility, and that was on full display Sunday.

Jones-Drew finished with 85 yards rushing on 27 carries, for just a 3.1 average per carry. But he was targeted six times by rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert. He caught all six throws for 51 total yards and added those two touchdowns in the air. After Tampa took a 14-0 lead, it was all Jones-Drew as the Jags poured it on with 41 unanswered points and brought a smile to MJD fantasy owners everywhere.
