Jags' MJD likes Arian Foster

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is an avid fantasy football player, so much so that he's getting his own fantasy football radio show on SIRIUS this season.

Paul Kuharsky of the ESPN.com AFC South Blog says MJD has a sleeper pick for the upcoming season - and it's from his division rival in Houston.

"I really like Arian Foster from the Houston Texans," Jones-Drew said, per Kuharsky. "I think he's a good running back, especially in their system, the Denver system. And I watched him in college too. It's his style -- in that zone system, a bigger back who can get a cut and get his shoulders square. He's going to be a force to be reckoned with. I really like him and I've got some sources, too."

There are no players on the Texans' roster from UCLA, Jones-Drew's alma mater, so that's not the source of his source. But wherever his intelligence comes from, Foster has looked good so far in training camp. Maybe Jones-Drew, ran for 1,391 and 15 touchdowns last season, is on to something.
