Maurice Jones-Drew not expected play vs. Titans: Fantasy implications

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

Maurice Jones-Drew is not expected to play when the Jaguars take on the Titans on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Maurice Jones-Drew is not expected to play Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars when they host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, head coach Mike Mularkey announced Wednesday. MJD is still dealing with a foot injury suffered in Week 7 against the Oakland Raiders.

Jalen Parmele is expected to start once again for the Jags, ahead of Rashad Jennings. Parmele had 24 carries for 80 yards last week against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact: With Jones-Drew likely out once again, Parmele is worth targeting off waivers if you are a fantasy owner in need of a running back for the start of the playoffs. Mularkey commented that the Jags' offensive line played its best game of the season last week, and the running game could feed off the momentum injected into the offense by Chad Henne at quarterback.
