Jaguars | Maurice Jones-Drew will be third-down back in opener

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday, Sept. 3, that he expects RB Maurice Jones-Drew to be the team's third-down back in the regular season opener Sunday, Sept. 9, against the Minnesota Vikings. RB Rashad Jennings will draw the start.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners of Jones-Drew will definitely want to keep him reserved for the first game, as he might see a total of 10-15 touches tops. Even that might be a stretch. He is a borderline fantasy play even in leagues of 12 or more teams as a 'flex' player at this point.
