Jaguars | Maurice Jones-Drew to miss Week 8

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey said RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) will miss Week 8 and probably will miss an extended period of time.

Fantasy Tip: Rashad Jennings was already going to be a popular waiver-wire target this week. A likely extended absence for Jones-Drew only makes Jennings more popular, and he should prompt big FAAB bids as well. He's no MJD, but Jennings is serviceable, especially in PPR leagues, because he'll serve in the exact same role as Jacksonville's starter. Unfortunately, the Jags' next couple of opponents are very tough on runners, but their schedule becomes very friendly to backs in the few weeks after that. The fantasy playoffs don't look too hot, if Jennings makes it that far as the starter.
