After denying that they were interested in trading him for months, the Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly open to moving running back Maurice Jones-Drew in the right deal.
The NFL has become a passing game. While that is a true statement, top running backs will rule the first few rounds of fantasy drafts as much as ever.
Robert Griffin is this year’s Adrian Peterson scenario. In a world where nothing happens to his knee at the end of last season, Griffin is a first-round pick and arguably the first QB off the board.
But Griffin is coming off a knee injury. All the propaganda says Griffin is way, way ahead of schedule and will be good to go Week One. But the last time the Adidas hype machine pushed someone who sustained a serious knee injury in the playoffs, things did not work so well. Griffin could end up like Adrian Peterson and perform like nothing ever happen, or he could be like Derrick Rose and miss much of the season.
Obviously Griffin’s final fantasy draft position will hinge on his progress during camp. By mid-August the picture should be much clearer.
Mark Brunell, Fred Taylor, Jimmy Smith, Tony Boselli – that is the Mt. Rushmore of Jacksonville Jaguars football. But who is the best?
Now that we’re just about at the halfway point, it seemed like a good time to veer from identifying contenders to figuring out who has pissed us all off the most by defying expectations, both in fantasy and in real life.
