Jaguars.com senior writer John Oheser recently tweeted head coach Mike Mularkey "definitely expects RB Rashad Jennings to start at RB in regular season opener" regardless if Jones-Drew reports to camp this week.
I think it is about time for all Jones-Drew owners, at least the remaining few who weren't concerned, to start to worry a little about the situation currently brewing down in Jacksonville. There were obviously already concerns, but the Jaguars had been non-commital about who would be starting in week one, leaving the door open in the event MJD reported. However, Mularkey is now willing to state even if Jones-Drew shows this week, he won't be starting in week one. Expect Jennings already rising ADP to skyrocket in the coming days and MJD's stock to plummet. Jones-Drew is one of the best RBs in the league, but that means nothing if he isn't on the field. Owners drafting this week would be wise to take the latest into account and if you are willing to take a chance on MJD, reaching for Jennings is an absolute must. Things seem to be getting worse and Mularkey's comments regarding week one will not sit well in the Jones-Drew camp.
