Maurice Jones-Drew injury update: Fantasy value still low with tough matchup

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Maurice Jones-Drew is somewhat healthy for Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. He missed Wednesday's practice, was limited on Thursday and had full participation on Friday.

The Jaguars have taken it easy on MJD all season and he has yet to miss any games. Jones-Drew's foot injury from last season has yet to creep up on him and he's been on the injury report for a few weeks with his knee injury.

He's coming off a season-high 21 carries last week, but he didn't produce much with them, rushing for just 41 yards. The good news is that he did score and also had three catches in the passing game.

Fantasy impact: The Cardinals have one of the best front sevens in the NFL and have shut down a lot of running backs on the year. MJD's fantasy owners shouldn't be excited that he has just 3.0 yards per carry on the season and only three TDs. He can be viewed as more of an RB2 this week with low upside in 12-team leagues.
