Maurice Jones-Drew ruled out, as expected: Fantasy implications

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Maurice Jones-Drew has been ruled out once again. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Florida Union-Times reports that Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. The news does not come as a surprise--Jones-Drew hasn't been able to practice since suffering a foot sprain in Week 7.

Montell Owens is expected to get the start again with Rashad Jennings still recovering from a concussion.

Fantasy Impact: It's a mystery why the Jaguars simply haven't placed MJD on injured reserve yet. He's never come close to returning and there would be no point to rush him back in a meangingless Week 17 game.

Owens is running at a nice 5.2 YPC since becoming the starter, but he's a really uninspiring fantasy play. You can do better at your flex spot for the title games.

For more fantasy info, head over to the SB Nation Fantasy War Room 4-8:30 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. Check out SB Nation's own Fantasy Football game, Pick 6!
