Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had 13 carries for 52 yards and one rushing touchdown along with nine catches for 38 receiving yards in Sunday's 17-15 loss to the Washington Football Team. It was a particularly impressive day for Jacobs, who was limited in practices during the week with an ankle issue but emerged to carry the workload on the ground with Kenyan Drake (leg) leaving mid-game with his own injury. Seeing a healthy and productive Jacobs in Week 13 has to make fantasy managers happy, especially with a tough rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs coming up in Week 14.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team, as is wide receiver DeSean Jackson (calf). Jacobs should see a solid amount of work and is a fantasy RB2 play this week, while Jackson is a boom-or-bust WR4 play, with the bust part having a higher likelihood.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) is expected to play in Week 13, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The 23-year-old was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday before drawing a "questionable" tag. Through nine contests this season, Jacobs has posted 420 rushing yards, six rushing touchdowns, and 198 receiving yards. Fantasy managers should view him as a mid-range RB2 against the Football Team on Sunday.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Washington Football Team. Jacobs popped up on the injury report on Thursday and has been limited in practice the last two days. We suspect he'll be active in Week 13, but his status is one to watch for the late-afternoon games on Sunday. If Jacobs were to sit, Kenyan Drake, Peyton Barber and Jalen Richard could all factor into backfield touches, with Drake being the most attractive RB in PPR formats. Jacobs had a season-high 22 carries for 87 yards and his sixth rushing touchdown of the year in the Thanksgiving win over the Dallas Cowboys. If he plays at less than 100% against a Washington defense allowing the third-fewest rushing yards to RBs this year, Jacobs could be a shaky touchdown-dependent RB2 this week.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) was added to the injury report and was limited at practice. Generally, being added to the injury report this late in the week is not a good sign, so Jacobs' chances of starting in Week 13 appear to be slim. To prepare for Jacobs' possible (extended) absence, fantasy managers should seek an alternative. In the event that Jacobs misses, managers can look to backup Kenyan Drake, who immediately becomes a fully featured back and an RB2. If Drake is already rostered, once more news comes out regarding the severity of Jacobs' injury, managers could explore the prospects of a trade ahead of their upcoming trade deadline. With all of that said, Jacobs may have just had a rest day, but it's wise to prepare for the worst.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is looking to make a big impact on Thanksgiving against the host Dallas Cowboys. The 28-year-old had 9 carries for 37 rushing yards and five receptions for 24 yards in last Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, a game in which Vegas didn't get any real momentum going with the exception of their one touchdown drive which was fueled by the passing game. Despite the loss, Jacobs has been consistently productive over the last couple of weeks. With Dallas defense ranking 10th in rushing yards allowed (103.7 yards per carry) and eighth in points allowed (21.4 points per game) Jacobs should be considered a solid RB3 for this week.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (knee) was removed from the final injury report on Friday and should be good to go this Sunday against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals. Jacobs was limited in practices this week with a knee issue but all signs now point to him being ready to take on a full workload this weekend. He only had seven carries for 16 rushing yards last week against the Kansas City Chiefs but did contribute five catches on five targets for 20 passing yards. Fantasy managers can consider Jacobs a solid RB2 in Week 11 since the Bengals' defense wasn't very good against opposing running backs in the couple of games leading up to their Week 10 bye.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday. Fellow running back Jalen Richard (ribs) was held out of practice. Jacobs had only seven carries -- his second-fewest of the season -- for 16 yards in the Week 10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. However, he also caught all five of his targets for 20 yards and has seen nine targets in the last two games. Playing from behind multiple scores for most of the game didn't help Jacobs' cause last Sunday, but he could easily bounce back against a Cincinnati Bengals defense in Week 11 that has allowed the second-most fantasy points per game to RBs in the last three weeks. Jacobs will be firmly in the RB2 mix for this weekend's game.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had seven carries for 16 rushing yards and caught five targets for 20 passing yards in Sunday night's 41-14 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Jacobs and the rest of Vegas' offensive arsenal were greatly stymied by Kansas City's defense and weren't able to cover much ground when they got the ball. On the flip side, it was nice to see Jacobs make it through a game without appearing to get injured again. It's likely Jacobs has a stronger game in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals, who had their bye week in Week 10.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs looks to stay productive against the visiting Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday. The 23-year-old had 13 carries for 76 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the New York Giants, which is good considering he spent some time on the sidelines with what appeared to be another injury. But after being hampered by injuries early in the season, Jacobs is finally taking on a fuller workload and looks comfortable doing it. Jacobs should be considered a mid-level RB2 against KC this weekend.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had 13 carries for 76 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the New York Giants. The 23-year-old had some pivotal runs for the Silver and Black despite the Giants defense being surprisingly good on such short rest. Unfortunately, the RB1 was also sidelined during portions of the second half with what appeared to be a knee injury. Fantasy managers will have to, once again, keep an eye on Jacobs throughout the next week.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (chest), who suffered a chest injury in the Week 7 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, is not on the injury report for Week 9. It appears that the team's bye in Week 8 did Jacobs a world of good. Injuries have kept the 23-year-old from really hitting his stride so far in 2021, but he will continue to serve as the Raiders lead back, which gives him RB2 utility for fantasy managers. Before his injury in Week 7, Jacobs saw double-digit carries in all four of his games, although he has yet to eclipse 53 yards on the ground in a single game. On the bright side, he has scored in each of his last three games and has five rushing touchdowns in his five games. The Giants have allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to RBs this season, so Jacobs will be a fine RB2 target this weekend.
The Las Vegas Raiders ruled running back Josh Jacobs (chest) out of the Week 7 game against the Philadelphia Eagles after he was injured during the game, but early indications are that he avoided a major injury, according to a source. The Raiders are on bye next week as well, so Jacobs will have extra time to recover and may not have to miss a game. The 23-year-old had six carries for 29 yards and managed to find the end zone before leaving the game, so at least it wasn't all bad for his fantasy managers on Sunday. He also caught all three of his targets for 39 yards. Jacobs has scored in three straight games after a rough start to the season, and it sounds like he won't have to miss much time, if any. With Peyton Barber a healthy scratch, Kenyan Drake led the team with 14 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown with Jacobs leaving the game against Philly.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (chest) won't return to the Week 7 matchup against the Eagles. Jacobs sustained a chest injury and was initially listed as questionable to make it back. However, things don't look promising, so in the interim, Kenyan Drake should be the primary option out of the backfield for the rest of the contest. Fortunately, the team has an upcoming bye before returning for a Week 9 game against the Giants. Still, fantasy managers would benefit by picking up Drake if he is available.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is looking to be a difference-maker in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The 23-year-old had his most productive game of the season against the Denver Broncos last week, logging 16 carries for 53 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 34-24 victory. Jacobs has the opportunity to build on that performance in Week 7 against an Eagles defense that has given up 713 rushing yards and five touchdowns to opposing running backs this season. If Derek Carr can take advantage of that hole in Philly's defense and fire up the running game, Jacobs could get a lot of work in. Fantasy managers should consider the Alabama product a high-end RB2 this weekend.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had 16 carries for 53 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 34-24 win over the host Denver Broncos. Jacobs had his most productive day since Week 1 despite missing practice time over the week an undisclosed illness, which is great news for fantasy managers who have patiently waited for him to get going. If Sunday's game is a sign, Jacobs is going to continue to get the majority of the work on the ground as long as he stays healthy.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness) was removed from the final injury report for Week 6 against the division-rival Denver Broncos after he missed practice on Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. He'll have his work cut out for him against a Broncos defense that's allowed only 344 rushing yards and two touchdowns to RBs through the first five weeks. Fantasy managers should feel a bit more comfortable rolling Jacobs out as an RB2 this weekend, though, after he had 15 of the team's 17 rushing attempts in the Week 5 loss to the Chicago Bears. He also caught four of five targets for 19 yards and scored a rushing touchdown. Peyton Barber's return from turf toe is a bit concerning, but Jacobs is getting healthier after looking sluggish in his first couple of games.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness) didn't practice Thursday due to an illness. The 23-year-old kept popping up on the injury report and missed two games earlier in the season with an ankle injury. It's unknown at this time if the illness is related to COVID-19, but it's a situation fantasy managers should continue to monitor. The Raiders' RB logged 70% of the team's snaps (46-of-66) in last Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Chicago Bears. He had 15 carries for 48 yards with the team's only touchdown in Week 5. Jacobs is a borderline RB2 against the Denver Broncos this Sunday, who are 13th in rush DVOA. Peyton Barber and Kenyan Drake would see an uptick in usage if Jacobs is ruled for Sunday's game. Stay tuned.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had 15 carries for 48 yards with his team's only touchdown in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Chicago Bears. Jacobs looked the healthiest he has since being sidelined in Week 1 with an ankle injury but was stymied most of the game by a Bears defense that has been strong against the rush all season. Even when Jacobs scored Vegas' lone TD in the third quarter, he battled to break the plane and get his team into the end zone. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on Jacobs to stay healthy and should continue considering him an RB2 for the time being.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs looks to get his season back on track as his team hosts the Chicago Bears in Week 5. The 25-year-old totaled 40 yards on 13 carries against the Chargers in Week 4, his first game since being sidelined in Week 1 with an ankle injury. Jacobs will probably get more opportunities this week with Peyton Barber questionable to play and Kenyan Drake being used as more of a short-pass specialist. That being said, the Bears defense has done well against the ground game, so Derek Carr will likely give more work to the receiving corps than his RBs. Not to mention that Jacobs was limited in practices this week to take some stress off of his rehabbing ankle. Jacobs' production should go up week over week if he continues to get healthier but is more of a low RB2 in Week 5.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) was upgraded to a full practice participant on Thursday. On the flip side, Peyton Barber (toe) missed practice for the second straight day and looks likely to miss the Week 5 game against the Chicago Bears after suffering a mild turf-toe injury on Monday night. Jacobs was limited in practice on Wednesday, but he appears to be getting past his injury after looking sluggish on Monday following a two-week absence. The 23-year-old should see all the early down work he can get with Barber injured, while Kenyan Drake continues to work in passing situations. Jacobs could be better with better health, but through two games he's averaging just 3.2 yards per carry on 23 attempts. He'll be more of a low-end, touchdown-dependent RB2 this Sunday against Chicago.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday after returning in the Monday night loss to the Los Angeles Chargers after missing the previous two games. Peyton Barber suffered a turf-toe injury on Monday, so it was just Jacobs and Kenyan Drake splitting the backfield touches. Jacobs played 63 percent of the offensive snaps and saw 18 touches for 57 total scrimmage yards. It was nice to see the 23-year-old garner five targets, but probably isn't sustainable with Drake around to handle most of the passing-game work. Barber could miss some time with his injury, which would be good news for Jacobs, but Jacobs is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry in two games and has become a touchdown-dependent RB2 so far in 2021.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) rushed for 40 yards on 13 attempts while catching all five of his targets for 17 yards during Monday's 28-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He returned to action Monday after missing the previous two games with ankle and toe injuries. The 23-year-old led all Raiders running backs with 36 snaps and 18 touches in Monday's loss. He has now logged 23 carries for 74 yards and two touchdowns while catching 6-of-7 targets for 23 yards over two games in 2021. Jacobs appears to be fully recovered from his ankle injury and is a low-end RB2 against the Chicago Bears in Week 5.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) is active and planning to play on Monday night against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers to close out Week 4. Jacobs sat out the previous two games with ankle and toe injuries, but he's ready to return as the Raiders look to stay undefeated. However, just because he's active doesn't mean that he'll see a giant workload. Peyton Barber and Kenyan Drake split touches with Jacobs out, with Barber seeing early down and short-yardage work, while Drake handled most of the third-down and pass-catching work. It's good news that Jacobs is back, but he's far from a sure thing for fantasy managers on Monday. In the opener, he had just four more snaps and carries than Drake.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (ankle) has been deemed a game-time decision for Monday's matchup vs. the Chargers, per head coach Jon Gruden. Jacobs, who has missed each of the team's previous two games, has been a limited practice participant, which gives his chances of returning some substance. Having been on the field for just 10 carries this season, Jacobs has scored on two of those, flashing his tremendous upside when healthy. Should he remain sidelined, the duo of Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber would handle running back duties. Season-long managers find themselves in a difficult spot with the Monday kick-off, but the Chargers defense has particularly struggled against the run this year, making Jacobs a worthy roll of the dice to suit up.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
