RB Maurice Jones-Drew joined the Oakland Raiders this offseason amid queries about whether the three-time All Pro had anything left in the tank.

His career-low average of 3.4 yards per carry in 2013 followed an injury-plagued 2012 campaign and had MJD considering hanging up his spikes.

"For awhile, I was contemplating retirement because I just didn't feel like I had it anymore," Jones-Drew told the Los Angeles Times earlier this month. "But that wasn't the case. My trainer helped me get back in shape and gain that foundation that I'd lost with the surgery."

Fantasy Impact: 

Jones-Drew said he's in the best shape of his life since joining the Raiders. He's still expected to combine with Darren McFadden to share the workload in Oakland, however. We currently have MJD ranked 31st among RBs with an ADP of the 10th round. Despite being expected to share the load, McFadden (ranked 37th) has had his share of injuries in the past, so MJD looks likes someone to take a shot on later in the draft who may be able to play in certain matchups.
