It was far from a definitive answer on his holdout, but Maurice Jones-Drew did his best to calm the frayed nerves of fantasy football owners everywhere during an online video conference. When asked if he would draft himself right now, Jones-Drew — who admitted that he always selects himself No. 1 — said he would call his own number again with his first pick. He followed that up with: “I think things are going to work out.”

That and a buck will buy you a cup of coffee, but it’s hardly a surprising answer considering the circumstances and the venue. MJD did acknowledge that he’s likely going to be available into the third round in many drafts and endorsed the idea of handcuffing him to fellow Jaguar Rashad Jennings.

Regardless, as the holdout continues, Jones-Drew’s draft value falls further. If fantasy football owners weren’t previously concerned about his production in 2012, this list of high-profile holdout running backs might change their minds.
