Maurice Jones-Drew injury: Jaguars RB probable, should play for fantasy owners

Maurice Jones-Drew is probable for Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. We break down the fantasy implications.

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is officially listed as probable on the official injury report. Jones-Drew is dealing with a hamstring injury that limited him in practice all week, and forced him to miss Wednesday's session. He was a limited participant on both Thursday and Friday, and did not suffer any reported setbacks.

Jones-Drew has played with limited or no practice this season, and that should be the case in Week 17 as well. He sustained the injury in Week 14 against the Houston Texans and has not missed time with the injury at this point. Jacksonville will take on the Indianapolis Colts, a team fighting for playoff seeding.

Fantasy Impact: Jones-Drew has had a poor season, but he wants to continue playing and he might be looking to show he still has it with an uncertain future. Going on the tape thus far, he's not been great. Fantasy owners would be best-served finding a more reliable option, but at this stage in the game, that might not be possible.

So for what it's worth: Jones-Drew should play and should start on Sunday. Start him with confidence in that vein.
