Maurice Jones-Drew Hand Surgery - Doubtful Week 2

The Oakland Raiders could be without RB Maurice Jones-Drew in their Week 2 matchup against the Houston Texans.  He led the team in carries with 9 during the Week 1 loss to the New York Jets, but gained just 11 yards.  Darren McFadden gets a bump in weekly rankings but it might be Latavius Murray who you want to stream this week.

A 6th round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft out of Central Florida, sat out his rookie year with an ankle injury and didn't get a touch in Week 1, but played on special teams.  He is 6'3, 230 and ran a 4.38 40 at his Pro Day. Don't drop any players you like for Run DMC or Murray, but deeper leagues can take a chance!

Last week, the Washington Redskins picked up 131 rushing yards on 23 attempts, led by Roy Helu's 11.5 YPC & Alfred Morris' 6.5 YPC.  Makes you wonder why Robert Griffin III attempted 37 passes!
