Concerned fantasy owners of Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew finally got the performance they were looking for Sunday. Meanwhile, WR Mike Sims-Walker continues to be an enigma.

A top-three draft pick in just about every league, M.J.D. failed to find paydirt for the first three weeks before doing so twice in Sunday's win over the Colts, also gaining 121 yards from scrimmage. While Jones-Drew's yardage numbers have been decent, the fact that he's gaining a career-worst 3.9 yards per carry could lend credence to the idea that he's not 100 percent following a preseason knee injury.

However, M.J.D. is one of the toughest players around and isn't likely to miss time unless it's something serious. He remains the focal point of the Jaguars' offense and is going to get the ball a ton (20.8 carries per game so far), so owners should feel confident that he will be a more consistent scorer going forward. He couldn't ask for a better matchup than his Week Five contest with Buffalo.

Meanwhile, Sims-Walker, Jacksonville's top receiver, basically has been nonexistent to this point. He has been held catchless in two of the team's four games, an absolute nightmare for his owners. While Sims-Walker has never been a consistent contributor, he was expected to take a step forward this season and become a dependable fantasy player, but that hasn't happened. Until his stats show that he remains an integral part of the Jags' offense, he's probably best left out of lineups.
