Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Jaguars | Maurice Jones-Drew held down in opener

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew (foot) was active in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he amassed just 45 yards on 15 carries. It was the second-lowest rushing total of his career when recording at least 15 rushes. It was the first real game action for Jones-Drew since he suffered a foot injury last October.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew will still be a viable fantasy option this season, but he will need the passing game to be a little better so defenses do not just key on him. Until that happens, the slow statistical days could continue. Still, he remains a low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in all leagues going forward.
