Jones-Drew injured his hamstring late during the team's Week 14 Thursday night game versus the Houston Texans and did not practice until 15 days later. The veteran back returned to practice on Friday, and after testing out his capacity during pregame warmups, Jones-Drew will suit up once again.
Fantasy Spin: This does nothing but throw a wrench into fantasy owners' plans. Jordan Todman was initially slated to get the start after totaling 153 yards in his only start in Jones-Drew's absence, and with a juicy matchup versus the Titans on the docket, he was a considered a high-upside RB2.
Now, with the workload potentially split, fantasy owners won't get to capitalize as much versus a defense that has allowed more fantasy points to running backs than every team except the Dallas Cowboys. It's a situation that spells potential fantasy disaster, as both running backs can be considered risky flex plays at best. Owners would be wise to explore other last-minute options.
