Maurice Jones-Drew 'very questionable' to return Week 15: Fantasy implications

Chris Trotman

Maurice Jones-Drew is "very questionable" to return this week from a foot injury, according to Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey. We break down the fantasy implications.

Maurice Jones-Drew is "very questionable" for Sunday's game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins, according to Jags head coach Mike Mularkey. The running back has missed his last seven starts due to a foot injury.

With Rashad Jennings still not yet cleared to play due to a concussion, Montell Owens is expected to once again handle the rushing load for that Jaguars this week. Owens rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries last week against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: MJD insists he would like to return to the Jaguars this season. With only three games left in the regular season, whether that will be possible, or even worthwhile, is unclear. No one would blame you if you have let go of Jones-Drew in your fantasy league by now. Any potential production over the last few weeks of the season will be tempered by the long layoff.

Owens is worth targeting in all fantasy formats. He is a potential Flex play, though a date with a good Dolphins run defense this week doesn't make him a great option.
