Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew leads offensive playmakers in snap count

The Florida Times-Union reported that Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 played "all but two opening-drive snaps and one play in the second-half opening drive" for a total of 39 plays. This off-season during his holdout, the news focused on the emergence of RB Rashad Jennings @RashadJennings because of Jones-Drew's absence. Since Jennings has been limited to due injury, when he is able to play again, he could eat into MJD's playing time significantly.

Fantasy Analysis:

As a contrast, the highest snapcount on the defensive side of the ball were 85 plays for DBs Dawan Landry @DLan504 and Dwight Lowery @LoweryDLo. Obviously the offense isn't seeing very much of the field and when thinking of offensive snaps like targets or touches, there just aren't many opportunities for the Jags' playmakers to do just that, make plays. It should go without saying that Jones-Drew is still one of the most valuable fantasy backs out there simply because he's such a focal point in this offense, but it's going to be tough for him to ever have a huge game if Jacksonville can't control the ball.
