2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
There isn’t a running back in the league who achieved more last season with less talent surrounding him that MJD. With the Jaguars beset by poor play at the quarterback and wide receiver positions, tight end Marcedes Lewis failing to build upon his career season in 2010 and no solid backup due to a season-ending injury to Rashad Jennings, MJD was the only reliable option in the Jacksonville’s offense. Hence, his career high in touches with 386 (343 runs and 43 receptions). By season’s end, he had totaled 1,606 yards on the ground (a career high) and 374 receiving yards as well as 11 total touchdowns. He will once again be the focal point of the team’s offense in 2012, provided he shows up. Just three years into a five-year contract signed in 2009, MJD is asking for a new deal and Jaguars general manager Gene Smith has said that he doesn’t plan to renegotiate. Having carried the ball more than any other running back over the past three years and with a holdout a possibility, MJD carries a fair amount of risk heading into 2012. Even with that risk, he still rates as just outside of the Big Three at running back.

Comment: MJD's holdout is over. Look for him to be limited early in the season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury McFadden expected to start for Raiders     -- Fri Sep 12 9:00 am --

Murray to see action as well
Maurice Jones-Drew said Thursday that he had a procedure performed on his right hand — not for a broken bone, he said — and the running back and the Raiders’ coaching staff are essentially ruling him out for Sunday’s game. "I would like to go out there (Sunday), but it’s a long season," said Jones-Drew, whose hand was very swollen. (SF Gate)

FF Today's Take: OC Greg Olson said Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray would be the running backs this week. "Last week we wanted to see Maurice Jones-Drew in a full-time role," Olson said. "This week, I don't know if we'll see that. We'll start with Darren, and it probably will be more series-wise with Latavius and Darren."

Appears unlikely to go in Week 2
Maurice Jones-Drew said he had a procedure on his right hand — not for a broken bone, he said — and the running back and the Raiders coaching staff essentially ruled him out for Sunday’s game. "I would like to go out there (Sunday), but it’s a long season,” said Jones-Drew, whose hand was very swollen. Raiders OC Greg Olson said that Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray would both get a crack at it if/when Jones-Drew can’t go against the Texans. (San Francisco Chronicle)

FF Today's Take: In a bit of an irony, McFadden came out of Week 1 healthy and should be expected to be the lead back on Sunday. Oakland should enjoy more success on the ground versus Houston than it did against the stout Jets' run defense, so McFadden's owners should feel comfortable using him as a flex or even RB2 if MJD is ruled out.
