On and off the field, things are looking up for Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 has multiple reasons to have a little pep in his step today. First, the Florida State Attorney's Office announced Tuesday that the Jaguars running back will not be charged in connection to an alleged fight outside a restaurant in May.
The office stated that "based on the facts and the law, the state cannot establish the charge beyond and to the exclusion of all reasonable doubt."
And before Jones-Drew was able to take a deep sigh of relief regarding his legal issues, he gave an optimistic viewpoint on his surgically repaired left foot to the Florida Times-Union. Over the weekend, Jones-Drew told Vito Stellino of the Times-Union that his foot "feels great."

Fantasy Analysis:

Of course, MJD said just a couple of weeks ago that he may not be ready for the start of training camp, so take that adjective with a grain of salt. The bigger development is the vanishing of all charges. Any worry that MJD might be suspended is gone. He is an RB2.
