Maurice Jones-Drew eased back into action over the pond


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew did not get the start and eased back into action in Week 4 against the Dolphins in London. Jones-Drew, who made his first appearance back from a minor hand surgery, was limited to just one carry for a gain of 1 yard in the first half. He caught all two of the passes thrown his way for 2 yards in a 38-14 defeat.

The Raiders have a bye week before hosting the Chargers in Week 6. Jones-Drew could be healthy enough to receive the starting nod by then.


Maurice Jones-Drew good to go in London


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) As expected, Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew was cleared and ruled active for Week 4 against the Dolphins in London. A hand procedure kept Jones-Drew out of the last two games. He fully participated in Friday practice and was listed as probable leading up to the game.

Return of Maurice Jones-Drew not exactly good news


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) The Raiders have been waiting for the return of Maurice Jones-Drew, and that is expected to happen in Week 4 against the Dolphins. Fantasy owners, however, should not be so excited about his return.

Darren McFadden has been ineffective in Jones-Drew's absence, but is not likely to be relegated to the bench just because Jones-Drew is back. In fact, the two players split time nearly evenly in Week 1, with Jones-Drew playing 28 offensive snaps, to McFadden's 24.

The Dolphins have allowed 23.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, though 43 of the 72 points allowed came in last week's game against the Chiefs. On the surface, this seems like a fine matchup, but the Raiders' offense is unlikely to replicate the success the Chiefs' success. With Jones-Drew and McFadden likely to split time, neither makes much sense as much more than a bye-week replacement for Week 4. 


Maurice Jones-Drew set to play Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Maurice Jones-Drew says he's ready to play again


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who has missed the last two games due to a hand injury, told NFL Network Wednesday he is ready to return Week 4 against the Dolphins. 

"Yeah, definitely," Jones-Drew said on NFL AM. "It's not up to me, but I feel like I'll be able to play."

Darren McFadden has started the last two games in Jones-Drew's absence.

"Just trying to get on the field and help my man (McFadden) out," Jones-Drew said. "I feel we both do better if we both out there. So obviously he's been taking the brunt of the carries and the brunt of the reps, so I want to get out there and try and give him a blow here and there and let him get his legs back underneath him so he can run."

Report: Maurice Jones-Drew dealing with hand injury

Maurice Jones-Drew, Darren McFadden struggle


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) The Raiders running backs had little room Sunday at the Jets in Week 1 in a 19-14 loss. Both Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden had minimal production.

Jones-Drew started and had nine carries for 11 yards and two catches for 12 yards on three targets. McFadden had four carries for 15 yards and one catch for 6 yards on one target.

The Raiders play host to the Texans in Week 2.


Maurice Jones-Drew not a promising Fantasy play in Week 1


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) One could not have imagined two years ago Maurice Jones-Drew being a weak Fantasy option heading into a regular season.

Or, for that matter, wearing a Raiders uniform.

But the scatback, who rushed for 1,606 yards in 2012 and averaged 4.8 yards per carry a year later, managed a YPC of just 3.4 last season before landing in Oakland. And though he has emerged as its featured back, a Week 1 matchup against the run-stuffing Jets and likelihood of losing carries to Darren McFadden has Jones-Drew as little more than a flex option in Week 1.

The Jets held opposing running backs to a 3.4 YPC average to lead the league in that department last season. Jones-Drew did average 6.1 in the preseason, but just 2.7 aside from one 40-yard scamper. He's still capable of breaking off a long one and taking it to the house, but that flimsy possibility is no reason for Fantasy owners to start him.

Jones-Drew is ranked no higher than 31st among all running back options this week by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard. There's a reason for that - a matchup on the road against the Jets is not a promising one.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Maurice Jones-Drew explodes for 45-yard TD run


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew looked like his old self during Friday's preseason game against the Packers.
