Maurice Jones-Drew tanks in Week 4, disappointing fantasy owners

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew had a terrible Week 4 performance. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

It was tough sledding for Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew on Sunday versus the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cincy defense held MJD to 38 yards on only 13 attempts all day. His longest run of the day went for 9 yards -- needless to say, his performance did not help the Jags stay in this game.

Fantasy Analysis: Jones-Drew's outing was disappointing but perhaps not a total disaster. On top of his 38 rushing yards, he added 42 more yards on five receptions. It helps in PPR leagues but this is not the Maurice Jones-Drew everyone hoped they'd drafted. A top rusher in this league a year ago, MJD is not having the kind of year you'd expect. At this point, owners should sit tight with Jones-Drew and avoid the low-ball trade offers you will no doubt receive.
