Jaguars | Maurice Jones-Drew ends holdout
Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew has ended his 38-day holdout. Jones-Drew, however, did not receive the new contract he was looking for. He arrived at the team's headquarters Sunday, Sept. 2, and met with teammates and coaches. Jones-Drew skipped the team's entire offseason program in a contract dispute. He has two years remaining on his contract.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners need to have some caution surrounding MJD even though he's back with the team. Will his conditioning be where it needs to be early in the season? How much will the team split his carries with Rashad Jennings, who had a very strong preseason? Consider him a borderline RB1 during your fantasy draft, but expect his numbers to take a bit of a hit at least early in the year.
