Maurice Jones-Drew, Rashad Jennings fantasy prospects dimming for Week 15

Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jenning both missed practice Thursday for the Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings both missed practice Thursday for the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union. Jones-Drew is still dealing with a foot injury that has kept him out for several weeks. Jennings has yet to pass concussion testing.

Neither running back is likely to suit up for Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins. Montell Owens will earn a second straight start if Jones-Drew and Jennings are marked inactive. Owens rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries last week against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey left the door open for Jones-Drew to return, but just barely, saying early this week that the running back was "very questionable" to play. After two straight missed practices, fantasy owners should count on Jones-Drew missing yet another start.

Owens is a decent pickup in standard fantasy leagues. He should see plenty of touches as the only reliable running back the Jags have in their stable. With Jones-Drew likely questionable at best next week, Owens could close out the season in your Flex spot.
