Maurice Jones-Drew

Week 1 – Flex – Sit or Start – Maurice Jones-Drew or Ronnie Brown?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 4th, 2012 | 561 Comments

Question: Which player should I start in my flex in week 1?

I’m in a standard league that has 3 flex spots.

Here are my players: Maurice Jones-Drew, DeAngelo Williams, Ronnie Brown, Kevin Smith, Kendall Wright, Robert Meachem.

I’ve pretty much  locked in DeAngelo Williams and Kevin Smith. I’m wondering who should start in the last spot.


Expect MJD’s carries to be limited this week against the Vikings. The guy ended his holdout just a few days ago and may not even play. If he plays, I expect Rashad Jennings to get the majority of the work with MJD getting just a few carries. With MJD’s carries limited, I wouldn’t trust him in my starting roster.

I really like DeAngelo Williams this week. Tampa Bay’s defense ranked 32nd against the run last season and Jonathan Stewart is still recovering from a sprained ankle that he suffered in the preseason. DeAngelo Williams is going to have a monster game.

Kevin Smith is the other no brainer with Michael Leshoure suspended and Jahvid Best on the PUP. Kevin Smith will be getting all of the carries for the Lions against a Rams defense that is very poor against the run. I’m expecting a monster game from DeAngelo.

In the last spot, I am between Ronnie Brown and Robert Meachem. Check on the status of Ryan Matthews. He may have to sit week 1 out due to his broken collarbone. If Matthews is a scratch in week 1, Ronnie Brown is your man. If Ryan Matthews is set to start, I would take a shot on Robert Meachem and hope that he burns the Raiders with the deep ball from Philip Rivers. I need to see what Kendall Wright is all about …

Week 2 – Start/Sit – Peterson or Jones-Drew? Harvin or Holmes?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 18th, 2011 | 841 Comments

Question: I need help picking my RB and WR in Week 2?

Start 2 of:
Adrian Peterson
Maurice Jones-Drew
Beanie Wells
Fred Jackson
Ryan Grant
Pierre Thomas

Start 3 of:
Brandon Lloyd
Brandon Marshall
Percy Harvin
Santonio Holmes


Adrian Peterson – For obvious reasons.

Fred Jackson – He has a great matchup against Oakland and should put up big numbers. He looked great last week.

Out of the WR, I would sit Percey Harvin because I believe that Harvin isn’t able to put up consistent numbers yet.  The other three should be able to put up good numbers.  And this is coming from a Vikings fan!

Do not start Maucine Jones-Drew with Mercedes Lewis hurt along with the Jaguars other primary reciever. The Jets can just stack the box and shut down Jones-Drew. I would not be surprised if the Jets completely shut down the Jaguars.…

Week 12 – Start/Sit – Steven Jackson or Maurice Jones Drew?

Posted by in NFL Week 12 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on November 10th, 2010 | 610 Comments

Question: Week 12: Start Steven Jackson or Maurice Jones Drew?

Maurice Jones-Drew has some kind of injury, but will probably play this Sunday against the Giants. Does anyone know how serious this injury is and how it will affect his performance? I have Steven Jackson on my bench and Jackson is starting against Denver. I’m tempted to sit MJD and start Jackson instead.  Just wanted to get your thoughts.


Maurice Jones-Drew will start on Sunday, but he won’t be 100%. Since that’s the case, you can’t go wrong with Steven Jackson against Denver. Who is your other running back. I’m surprised that you have MJD and have Steven Jackson on your bench to begin with.

Week 1 – RB – Start or Sit – Jonathan Stewart or Maurice Jones-Drew?

Posted by in NFL Week 1 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 11th, 2009 | 439 Comments

Question: Which RB do I start or sit in week 1?

Here are my RBs:

Ray Rice vs. KC
Jonathan Stewart vs. PHI
Maurice Jones-Drew vs.  IND
Steve Slaton vs. NYJ

I need to pick two. I was also proposed a trade of Jonathan Stewart and Steve Slaton for Andre Johnson and Ryan Grant. Do you think I should take it?


Ray Rice against Kansas City is a sure-fire bet, he’s your starter every week. You also have to go with Maurice Jones-Drew against Indy who is also soft against the run. You have to play your best players. Rice and MJD should be your starters every week regardinless of your matchup. Very nice group or RBs.

Week 8 – RB – Start or Sit – DeAngelo Williams or Michael Turner?

Posted by in NFL Week 8 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on October 23rd, 2008 | 474 Comments

Question: I need some fantasy start/sit advice for week 8.

Which RB should I start in week 8?

DeAngelo Williams vs. ARI
Michael Turner vs. PHI

Maurice Jones-Drew is already in my starting lineup so I’m trying to decide who to put in my RB2.  I also have Reggie Bush, but he’s hurt.


I would go with Michael Turner since he’s the featured back and a monster at the goal line. I don’t like the fact that DeAngelo Williams is splitting carries with Jonathan Stewart since you never know what to expect from him.

What do you think? Answer below!
