Summary

After eight years as the face of the Jaguars franchise Maurice Jones-Drew signed with the Oakland Raiders in the offseason. Jones-Drew was a perennial fantasy RB1 for the first 6 years of his career averaging more than 1500 total yards and 12 touchdowns per year. In 2012 he struggled with injuries and played only 6 games and was ineffective in 2013 in a disjointed Jaguars offensive attack. He averaged 3.4 yards per carry in 2013, the first time in his career that he's averaged less than 4.2. In his prime Jones-Drew excelled in the passing game, averaging nearly 50 catches a year from 2008-2011. At 29 years old Jones-Drew is entering the twilight of a typical running back's career but he'll have plenty of opportunities to earn touches in Oakland. His main competition for touches will be the oft-injured Darren McFadden and the unproven Latavius Murray. (August 4)

Raiders | Cautious with Maurice Jones-Drew (Fri Aug 22, 10:50 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) has been dealing with a hand injury, and CBS Sports sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said the running back might have been lifted as a precaution from the preseason game Friday, Aug. 22, against the Green Bay.

Raiders | Coach impressed with Darren McFadden (Mon Aug 18, 01:04 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden has performed well during training camp and shown some explosiveness during his runs, according to head coach Dennis Allen. 'I think Darren is probably running the ball as well as I've seen him run it since I've been here. I think he's probably more explosive than I've seen him since I've been here. I think part of that is that he's remained healthy throughout the offseason, throughout training camp. There haven't been any kind of nicks or nagging little deals that have slowed him down. So, hopefully that trend will continue because I've seen a lot of positives in what he's done in the running game,' Allen said.

Our View: McFadden is the ultimate tease. He's incredibly talented but rarely healthy. We'll see how he works with Maurice Jones-Drew in the team's RBBC.
