Maurice Jones-Drew Fantasy Recap: Jags RB Solid But Lacking TDs

Maurice Jones-Drew was the only offensive threat for the Jacksonville Jaguars in their 41-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, amassing 112 yards on 17 carries.

Jones-Drew came into Week 15 among the most consistent and effective running back all season. His lowest rushing total of the season was back on Oct. 30 when the Houston Texans held him to 64 yards. But even then, he managed to score a touchdown and salvage his fantasy value.

In every other game this season, Jones-Drew had rushed for at least 84 yards and had come into this game leading the league in rushing with 1,222 rushing yards. That's an average of 94.0 yards per game. He was also coming off one of his best games of the season, scoring four touchdowns, rushing for 85 yards and racking up 51 more yards receiving against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
