Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew didn't have close to his biggest game on Sunday, but he did have one of his most surprising ones. After rushing for a touchdown each of his last three games, Jones-Drew instead threw for one, part of the Jaguars' 32-28 win over the Cleveland Browns, their third win in their last four games.
The running back ran for 77 yards on 23 carries -- his second-highest rushing yards total of the season -- but had only four receiving yards, keeping his overall yardage total low. He attempted one pass, though, connecting with tight end Marcedes Lewis on an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter. It was only the second pass attempt of Jones-Drew's eight-year career. The first was in 2010, and it was intercepted.
Fantasy impact: In standard leagues, passing touchdowns are worth less than rushing/receiving ones, so, neat as the score was, it wasn't as valuable as a more traditional one might have been. That limited Jones-Drew to 11 fantasy points, his fifth straight game with nine or more. Still, no one is complaining about "only" 11 points out of Jones-Drew after the miserable start to the season that had people wondering if he was washed up.
