2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Oct-25-2013 by Daniel Kalles
Update 10-25-2013 - MJD is healthy but not very productive. At this point he isnt an every week starter and should only be used for bye week fill in or based on match up, until he shows he can consistently productive again.
Update September 19 -2013 - MJD sitting out practice. He might not play this week.
Profile - Before last season MJD had been one of the more consistent fantasy RBS as well as being one of the more durable ones, missing only 3 games over his first 6 seasons. 2012 was different for MJD as he set career lows in all categories mainly due to the fact that he only played in 6 games. He has been working hard to be ready ahead of training camp and at this point it is a wait and see with him. Can't judge his draft status until he shows if he is back fully from his injury. Stay tuned for more info as training camp gets closer.
Looking one week ahead, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew said during a Friday radio interview that he "definitely" expects to play next week versus the Packers. He then backed up just a tad.
"I mean, I just want to make sure everything is on track," Jones-Drew said. "And then we'll see how it goes next week but I expect to be out there playing with my teammates.
"It's what we, I think, what we figured out was just a strained hamstring. I've played with those before so it's not that big of a deal."
Jones-Drew suffered the injury to his right leg late in the Jaguars' win over the Texans on Thursday. Jones-Drew didn't play the rest of the game and underwent an MRI on Friday. It sounds like the MRI didn't show anything too serious.
I'd be a little cautious here because hamstring injuries don't tend to heal quickly, but MJD will have had about 10 days to recover by the time the Bills game comes around. He has played his best football in the past three weeks, and the Bills have allowed an average of 17.3 fantasy points to lead opposing running backs in their last three games. MJD would be a strong RB2 if he can get right in time for Week 15. If Jones-Drew can't go, Jordan Todman would probably start in his place.

|3.05||DLF.com - TheFFGhost - At this point RBs were coming off the board very quickly so MJD was a quick grab here. He is certainly in decline but his production should be enough to justify his selection here.|

|3.09||FFMagicMan - Starting WR/TE has me chasing RB a bit now. Once Mo's legal issues disappeared, I gained enough confidence in him to feel kinda-OK with him as my RB1. Don't love it, but if he can regain even 85% of his 2011 season numbers, I should be able to survive.|
