Fantasy Analysis
In case you’ve forgotten, Jones-Drew’s 2012 season was cut short by a broken left foot (Lisfranc fracture), which required surgery. According to media reports, MJD should be 100 percent for training camp. When healthy, the 5-foot-7, 208-pound Jones-Drew uses his surprisingly impressive power to run effectively between the tackles. MJD also has plenty of speed to pull away from defenders in the open field. From 2009 through 2011, the workhorse runner averaged 24 total touches and 117 total yards per game, and scored 34 total touchdowns. By the way, Jones-Drew won the NFL rushing title in 2011. The eighth-year pro is also a great receiver, which gives him obvious every-down back upside. However, besides coming off a foot injury, MJD comes with other risks. He must learn a new offensive system. Offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch is planning to use a zone-blocking scheme, which the linemen will need time to learn. MJD always has run in power-blocking schemes. Durability also remains a concern. Since 2009, Jones-Drew has carried the ball 1,040 times. But since he is only 28, the diminutive runner should have at least two good seasons left in the tank. Jones-Drew is a risk/reward RB1.

Rushing: 1175 Yards, 7 TD.
Receiving: 35 Receptions, 375 Yards, 3 TD.
