News: Jones-Drew had 45 yards and a touchdown on three carries in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. Impact: It was a short night for Jones-Drew, who took his third carry for a 40-yard touchdown, and then gave way to Darren McFadden. MJD has left no questions regarding who will be the Week 1 starter, and he also figures to handle the vast majority of third-down work. McFadden may be more of a threat at the goal line, but their respective track records indicate that MJD should also get most of those touches. Rejuvenated or not, Jones-Drew will probably be held back by what figures to be a poor offense. Of course, that should hurt him less than McFadden, as Jones-Drew can at least pile up some receptions if the Raiders spend most of the season playing catch-up. Then again, with Marcel Reece still around, Jones-Drew's ceiling for receptions isn't all that high.(RotoWire, )
