Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew listed as doubtful; WR Cecil Shorts questionable

The Jaguars' offense could be seriously short-handed this weekend versus the Bills. The top story is that running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 is listed as doubtful after missing every practice this week due to a strained hamstring. Head coach Gus Bradley said Friday that it "doesn't look good" for Jones-Drew to play.
Cecil Shorts @CecilShortsIII' prospects are a little brighter, but he is questionable to place because of a nagging groin injury. Shorts said he will need offseason surgery to repair the injury, but he "hopes" to be active against Buffalo.

Fantasy Analysis:

MJD could see the writing on the wall earlier this week; he pretty much knew his hamstring wouldn't heal in time for this game. That means Jordan Todman @JordanTodman runs onto the RB2 radar. He scored a receiving touchdown last week against the Texans and should see at least 15 touches versus a Bills defense that has permitted 17.5 fantasy points on average to starting running backs in its past four games.
The matchup is also advantageous for Shorts, but he has had just one game with double-digit fantasy points since Week 6, and he is clearly not healthy. I would avoid the Jags' wideouts in your fantasy playoffs.
