MJD was good, the rest of his team was really really bad. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew had 60 yards on 12 carries in Week 2 against the Houston Texans. He added three receptions for seven yards and the team's only touchdown. The Jaguars lost 27-7.

Fantasy Impact: MJD did what he could in a bad situation. The Jags' offense was absolutely putrid on Sunday, with just 117 total yards. Let that sink in for a moment: MJD accounted for 57.2% of his team's offense, and had a stat line that would disappoint most fantasy owners. He's still an elite fantasy player, but as long as Blaine Gabbert continues to drag the offense down, there will be stinker games like this one. The Jags host Indianapolis in Week 3.
