Maurice Jones-Drew put the Jags on his back, again. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew had 28 carries for 177 yards and a touchdown, and added two catches for 16 yards in a dramatic 22-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Impact: Stop me if you heard this before: MJD single-handedly propped up a miserable Jags offense and kept his team in the game all by himself. If there was any doubt about Jones-Drew handling a workhorse load again after his lengthy holdout, they're all silenced now. He's an easy RB1 play in every fantasy league format, especially if the Jags keep needing to rely on him bailing them out. They take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4.
