If you're not aware, Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew is a big fanatic of Fantasy Football. And he takes his standing as an elite rusher seriously. So when news broke recently that he had knee surgery and would be lost for the year, which caused Fantasy owners to shy away from Jones-Drew at No. 3 overall (he didn't fall out of the Top 5), he was upset at the erroneous report.
This was provided to me by Mark Long, who covers the Jaguars for the Associated Press.
"I'm upset that I dropped in the Fantasy drafts," Jones-Drew said. "It's OK. The people that stuck with me stuck with me. Once again it was a false statement, and somebody ran with it."
Sounds like someone is in line for a big year. And now he has the motivation he was looking for. Here comes MJD. Look out.
