Jaguars optimistic that RB Maurice Jones-Drew may play Sunday

The Jaguars probably don't want to think about how bad they could be without running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 available for Sunday's matchup at the Seahwks. So, perhaps it's no surprise that the team is reportedly optimistic that Jones-Drew might not miss any game time because of his left ankle strain.
"We feel like he's got a chance to be back on Sunday," head coach Gus Bradley said.

Fantasy Analysis:

Jordan Todman @JordanTodman would probably fill in for MJD if he couldn't go, but let's be honest: Even Jones-Drew is a tough start in Seattle, especially at less than 100 percent. You probably can't afford to bench him, but I wouldn't scoff at the idea. The Seahawks have every reason to focus all of their defensive attention on Jones-Drew this weekend.
