Maurice Jones-Drew’s Fantasy Football Value Drops Again With Sprained Ankle
Many remotes were broken on Sunday when Maurice Jones-Drew left the Jacksonville Jaguars‘ loss to the Oakland Raiders with a sprained left ankle. Through two games in 2013, the frustrated power runner has just 72 yards on 25 carries and now appears to be in for another miserable season with a gimpy left foot on a terrible team.
The kicker here is MJD hurt his left ankle against Oakland last year as well and missed the final 10 games of the season. It doesn’t look like this injury is nearly as severe, but it sure isn’t going to help his fantasy value, which had pretty much taken a nosedive already after his four-point outing in Week 1.
And on a reality football note, he’s in the final year of his contract and at this point, he has no leverage in negotiations with the Jaguars. So if you have Jones-Drew on your fantasy team, don’t even waste your time picking up his backup, Jordan Todman. Just try to get James Starks or Knowshon Moreno off the waiver wire and hope for the best.
