One of last year’s biggest fantasy football studs, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew, hasn’t been putting up his usual assortment of points this year, with only three touchdowns until today. Meanwhile Houston Texans RB Arian Foster came out of nowhere to lead the NFL in both rushing yards and total touchdowns.
But today MJD is showing the young guy a thing or two. With two touchdowns already, plus 86 total yards, Jones-Drew’s first half would rank as his third-best game this season. Foster only has 22 yards on eight carries and one passing target.
As soon as I finished typing that, Foster ran in a one-yard touchdown to conclude an 80-yard drive. You’re welcome, Foster owners. The Jags defense has ranked in the NFL’s bottom half in rushing yardage, so it’s not surprising they were unable to keep the shutout going for much longer.
