Jacksonville Jaguars appear ready to start running back Montell Owens this Sunday, per the Florida Times Union. With Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) still sidelined and Rashad Jennings (concussion) out, the Jags are in a tough spot.
They will go deep into their roster, going with an attack-by-committee against the New York Jets on Sunday. Owens will lead the way in Week 14, but should be joined by Richard Murphy and former Charger Jordan Todman.
Fantasy Analysis: The one reason Owens could work out this weekend is because of his opponent. The Jets are a calamity -- a no name running back having a field day on them seems like the next logical step.
However, the Jags will likely go with a pass-heavy attack against the Jets' secondary. Owens is a gamble as a low-end flex option in Week 14.
