An injury update on MJD from MJD

On Friday night, I was able to speak with Jaguar RB Maurice Jones-Drew on Sirius/XM Fantasy Sports radio, so I figured I would share what he had to say about his injury status.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
