Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew, WR Cecil Shorts looking like game-time decisions

Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew @Jones_Drew32 isn't the only Jags star who might not play Sunday versus the Bills. Wide receiver Cecil Shorts @CecilShortsIII is struggling with a groin injury, and head coach Gus Bradley said Thursday that "decisions on each could go up until game time." Jones-Drew is being held back by a hamstring injury, and neither player has practiced this week.

Fantasy Analysis:

Both players seem to be questionable for Week 15, which is too bad because the Jags have been performing better, and the matchup is stellar. We might have a better idea on the availability of Shorts and MJD after Friday's practice. Jordan Todman @JordanTodman would replace an inactive MJD and would be a fine flex option. Ace Sanders would presumably become Chad Henne's top wideout if Shorts can't play. Sanders has topped 60 yards in three of the past four games and, more impressively, has caught eight passes in two of those four games. He could be worth a shot as a sleeper in PPR leagues if Shorts is out.
