Jacksonville Jaguars Maurice Jones-Drew expressed disappointment in his own Fantasy Football rankings heading into the new NFL season.  Jones-Drew reassured players he felt zero pain after practicing for the first time in camp over the weekend. 

“Pretty much every reporter, ‘Will he be back, is it possible to come back and do what he’s done?’” Jones-Drew told reporters Monday. “A lot of fantasy football gurus who have never stepped on the field before or ever been in the locker room, they know the best about football.”

Jones-Drew underwent serious knee injury and NFL fantasy players got him at a significant discount. 

“This year, there is no pain. It’s just going out there and playing like I’d been playing the first couple of years without it,” Jones-Drew said.

The Jaguars are listed with just better than 4/1 odds of winning the AFC South Division, which looks to be among the most unpredictable, so the value is pretty good.  Oddsmakers have the Jags pegged to win UNDER 6.5 regular season games at -140 while the OVER would pay out $11 for every $10 bet.

NFL Divisional Playoff: Baltimore Ravens @ Buffalo Bills Prediction

The Buffalo Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, as Josh Allen threw for 324 yards (with 128 of those yards going to Stefon Diggs). The Colts, despite coming in with the seventh seed, showed why they are a difficult team to stop. They rank in the top ten in the NFL on offense, defense and special teams, and the running of Jonathan Taylor kept Colt drives going, and it also took into the second half for the Bills to solve that Colt defense.
