Boy this post is looking mighty repetitive, but when your team really only has one viable offensive threat, that's going to be the only real fantasy option. Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew currently leads the NFL in rushing yardage and looks to add to that total against the Tennessee Titans today. In the first match up of the season, Jones-Drew picked up 96 yards on 24 carries, but only carried the ball twice in the fourth quarter. Despite facing loaded fronts all season, he's still averaging 4.5 yards per carry and 92 yards per game.

If you're playing a fantasy football game this weekend, you're either in your leagues finals or semi-finals and Jones-Drew should be in your starting line up. The Titans defense isn't what it used to be, ranked near the bottom of the NFL in rush defense. On the season, the Titans are giving up nearly 130 rushing yards per game and make no mistake the Jaguars are going to continue to ride Jones-Drew on offense.
