Maurice Jones-Drew misses practice Thursday, has little fantasy value this week

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

MJD was held out of practice for the second day in a row. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew was held out of practice on Thursday. It's the second day in a row he's missed practice.

Jones-Drew suffered a foot tendon sprain in Sunday's loss to the Oakland Raiders. The team said they expect to have him play in next week's game against the Seattle Seahawks, but the missed practice time paints a different picture. Jones-Drew will likely be listed as questionable on Friday's injury report and could end up being a game time decision Sunday morning.

Fantasy impact: If Jones-Drew is unable to suit up on Sunday, Jordan Todman will get the start at running back, with Justin Forsett backing him up. It's a nightmare scenario for the Jaguars anemic offense. Jones-Drew has been unable to get going this season, getting just 2.9 yards per carry against stacked boxes. We don't expect that to improve any time soon if the passing game can't find a pulse. Neither Jones-Drew nor Todman are recommended fantasy plays. All Jaguars players are hands-off against Seattle's defense this week.
