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. (May 16)

Latest News

Raiders | Unclear how carries will be divided (Mon Jul 14, 11:05 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden and RB Maurice Jones-Drew could struggle while splitting carries this season, according to ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez. Gutierrez noted that both backs have traditionally performed better later in games, and splitting carries could prevent both backs from finding a rhythm.

Our View: Both McFadden and Jones-Drew are not quite the players they used to be. Age and injuries have caught up to them, so expect the Raiders to split the carries (maybe somewhat evenly) to keep the duo fresh. McFadden has an ADP of RB40 (9.07) while Jones-Drew is coming off the board at RB35 (8.01) in 12-team PPR leagues.
