  • Josh Jacobs Hoping To Play In Week 13

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (calf) is not expected to practice much, if at all this week due to his calf strain, according to sources. He'll receive around-the-clock treatment in hopes of playing in Week 13 against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. Fantasy managers should expect Jacobs to be questionable for this weekend's game after he aggravated a calf strain in the Week 12 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks when he rumbled for a season-high 229 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries. The 24-year-old is the RB1 in half-point PPR scoring this year, so he'll be a must-start if he's active against the Bolts. If he doesn't get cleared this week, Ameer Abdullah would likely lead a backfield that would also include Brandon Bolden and rookie Zamir White. Abdullah is worth a speculative waiver-wire pickup this week.

  • Josh Jacobs Has Career Day In Game-Winning Performance

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs rushed for a career-high 229 yards and two touchdowns while adding six catches for 74 yards. Jacobs was questionable with a calf injury going into this matchup. He proceeded to total over 300 yards and score the game-winning 86-yard touchdown in overtime. It was a dominant performance at all phases for the Raiders' running back who has had a career season and emerged as one of the best values in all of fantasy. Jacobs had always been a solid volume play with touchdown ability but he showed he has overall RB1 upside in this one. He will face the Chargers in Week 13, one of the best matchups in fantasy football.

  • Josh Jacobs Officially Active Week 12

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (calf) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN.com's Adam Schefter. There was some concern about Jacobs' status after he was a late addition to the injury report on Friday, but in the end, he's going to be active for his 25th consecutive game. The 24-year-old has totaled 930 rushing yards, 251 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns this season. He should be viewed as a strong RB1 option once again this week.

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (calf) is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN.com's Adam Schefter. There was some concern about Jacobs' status after he was a late addition to the injury report on Friday, but it looks like he's on track to play. The 24-year-old has totaled 930 rushing yards, 251 receiving yards, and seven touchdowns this season. He should be viewed as a strong RB1 option once again this week.

  • Josh Jacobs Questionable To Play In Week 12

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (calf) was added to the injury report on Friday after getting in a limited practice, and he's officially listed as questionable to play in Week 12 against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. It's never a good sign when players are late additions to the injury report, so Jacobs' status bears watching heading into Sunday's game. If the 24-year-old is limited or out this weekend, the Raiders would probably roll with some form of a committee backfield that includes Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah, Brittain Brown and rookie Zamir White. Through 11 weeks of the 2022 season, Jacobs is the RB5 in half-point PPR scoring, so he'll be a high-end, must-start RB1 if he's active.

  • Josh Jacobs A High-End RB1 In Week 12

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is coming off a 109-rushing yard, three-reception game against the Denver Broncos in Week 11. Jacobs has now posted seven rushing touchdowns and four 100-yard games in the 2022 season. He will look to stay hot against the Seattle Seahawks on the road in Week 12. Seattle is allowing the seventh-most fantasy points per game to running backs this season and their run defense ranks as the 17th-best in the NFL in DVOA. Jacobs has been dominating the backfield touches in Las Vegas this year and can be trusted as a top-six fantasy running back heading into Week 12.

  • Josh Jacobs Produces 160 Total Yards In Week 11

    Running back Josh Jacobs recorded 24 carries for 109 yards and three catches for 51 yards receiving in the Raiders 22-16 overtime win vs the Denver Broncos. It was clear the Raiders wanted to get Jacobs going in this one as he worked as a chain mover in an attempt to establish the run early on. He had a huge 43-yard reception to set the Raiders up for the game-tying field goal to force overtime. No one on the team had a carry in this one besides Jacobs. He is a true workhorse running back who has looked smooth in the passing game all season long. Keep him rolling as an elite fantasy option in Week 12.

  • Josh Jacobs A Locked-In RB1 In Week 11

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will look to continue his impressive fantasy season against the Denver Broncos in Week 11. The Raiders made it a point to establish the run in Week 10 and will look to do so again going up against a stout Broncos defense. With Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller on IR, Jacobs took on a larger role in the passing game. His eight targets were a season-high and the volume should be expected again as a safety valve for Derek Carr with the lack of weapons. This role will be important for his fantasy outlook going forward. Even against a top-tier defense, the opportunities are too valuable as a focal point in the offense and in fantasy. Keep Jacobs rolling as a top running back option.

  • Josh Jacobs Totals 106 Yards In Loss

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs rushed 21 times for 78 yards and a touchdown and added six catches for 28 yards in the loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Jacobs has cooled off as a high-end RB1, but he remains a must-start as one of the only running backs in the league who dominates almost all backfield opportunities. He'll face a tough matchup against Denver, who just shut down Derrick Henry, but again, his workload is safe and he's a strong option in all scoring formats.

  • Josh Jacobs A Top-Five Fantasy Option Against Colts

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has been terrific this season. He rushed for 743 yards and six touchdowns while catching 25 passes for 172 yards over eight games in 2022. The 24-year-old has been quiet recently, failing to top 70 yards rushing or finding the end zone across the last games. He has a solid matchup against the Colts in Week 10, who rank 17th in rush DVOA in 2022. Jacobs should have another heavy workload and is considered a top-five fantasy running back against Indianapolis in Week 10.

  • Josh Jacobs Doesn't Find The End Zone In Week 9

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs finished with 67 yards off 17 carries in Sunday's loss to Jacksonville. He also had three receptions for 26 yards. The 24-year-old was red-hot in his three games between Weeks 4 and 7, compiling six touchdowns. However, Jacobs hasn't had any in his last two games. Fortunately, he has a good chance of getting back on track in Week 10 against the Colts, so he remains a must-start in all fantasy formats.

  • Josh Jacobs Remains An Elite Option Against The Jaguars

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was quiet in last Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He rushed 10 times for 43 yards and caught two of four targets for 11 yards in the Week 8 loss. The 24-year-old has been a reliable fantasy option this season, rushing for 676 yards and six touchdowns while catching 22 passes for 152 yards over seven games in 2022. Jacobs will look to rebound against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 9. The Jaguars are the eighth-most fantasy points to running backs per game and rank 21st in rush DVOA. Jacobs is a must-start and top-3 option against the Jaguars in Week 9.

  • Josh Jacobs Bottled Up In Week 8

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs rushed for 43 yards on 10 carries while also catching two passes for 11 yards in the Raiders Week 8 loss to the New Orleans Saints. Statistically, this was Jacobs' worst game of the season as it was the worst offensive showing for the Raiders in 2022. He failed to find the end zone for the first time in three games and saw his lowest touch total since Week 1. The Raiders could not have looked worse overall in this game, so it is okay to throw away the low output for Jacobs and not panic. He will continue to be on the RB1 line for a Week 9 game in Jacksonville.

  • Josh Jacobs Off The Injury Report

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (foot) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Jacobs logged a few limited practices during the week but returned for a full session on Friday. The 24-year-old has been on a roll, amassing 441 yards and six touchdowns off 69 carries while totaling 13 catches in his last three games. With Davante Adams (illness), Mack Hollins (heel), and Darren Waller (hamstring) questionable, Jacobs could be even more involved in Week 8, keeping him a must-start in all formats.

  • Josh Jacobs Limited Again Thursday

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (foot) put in another limited practice on Thursday. There's nothing to suggest that Jacobs is in danger of missing or being limited for the Week 8 contest against the New Orleans Saints. The 24-year-old has been carrying fantasy teams of late with a whopping 441 rushing yards and six touchdowns on 69 carries in the last three games after not finding the end zone in the first three games of the season. Jacobs is an absolute must-start RB1 for fantasy managers in Week 8 against a Saints defense that has allowed the ninth-most half-points PPR points to RBs in the last three weeks of action.

  • Josh Jacobs On The Week 8 Injury Report

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (foot) is on the Week 8 injury report and was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. Jacobs should be good to go for Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints, so fantasy managers need to leave him locked into their starting lineups as a surefire RB1. The 24-year-old had his third straight 100-yard rushing game in the Week 7 win over the Houston Texans and currently ranks fourth in total fantasy points at the position in half-point PPR setups. Jacobs didn't find the end zone in the first three weeks, but in the last three games, he's found the end zone six times on the ground while rushing for 441 yards on 69 carries (6.39 yards per tote). He's carrying fantasy teams right now.

  • Josh Jacobs A Locked-In RB1 In Week 7

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will look to continue his top-10 season in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. Heading into the Week 6 bye, Jacobs had provided back-to-back top-3 finishes at the position. Coming out of the bye, he will square off against a bottom-5 run defense in the NFL in the Texans. The ground game has been a huge factor in the Raiders recent offensive success, with Jacobs rushing for over 140 yards in each of the last two games. Perhaps even more importantly, the snap share has been over 80% in both contests. This is reflecting nicely on passing downs, seeing at least five targets over his last three games. Snap count, volume, and matchup. The recipe for a top-10 fantasy running back in Week 7.

  • Josh Jacobs Dominates For Second Straight Week

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs rushed the ball 21 times for 154 yards and a touchdown, adding five catches for 39 yards through the air in the Raiders' 30-29 loss on Monday night to the Chiefs. It marks two consecutive weeks now that he's carried the ball 20-plus times for over 100 rushing yards. What's even more exciting is that he has five receptions in three consecutive weeks. The 24-year-old is becoming a very reliable fantasy football back who belongs in the top-15 moving forward. He'll be on a bye in Week 6 before taking on the Texans in Week 7, so fantasy managers will need to rely on another option this week.

  • Josh Jacobs Looks To Maintain RB1 Value In Week 5

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will look to build on his success in Week 5 after a 175-yard breakout performance against the Denver Broncos. Jacobs was finally able to find the end zone for the first time in 2022, rushing for two touchdowns. More importantly, he played 89 percent of the snaps, by far his most of the season. Being involved in the passing game will be important for Jacobs' value going forward. He faces off against a Kansas City Chiefs team that just allowed over 100 yards and two touchdowns receiving to running backs in Week 4. The Raiders also got their first win of the season, largely due to Jacobs' success. Look for the Raiders to continue to lean on Jacobs as a workhorse, and he'll be a fringe RB1 for fantasy teams.

  • Josh Jacobs Goes Off For 175 Total Yards, Two Touchdowns

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs handled 28 rushing attempts for 144 yards and two touchdowns, adding five receptions for 31 yards on six targets in a Week 4 victory over the Denver Broncos. Jacobs was the focal point of the Raiders offense in this one as quarterback Derek Carr failed to throw a touchdown. Despite rumors this past offseason that the team would take a committee approach at the running back position, Jacobs seems to have a stranglehold on the Las Vegas backfield. He has recorded five catches in each of the past two games, proving his worth as a receiving threat as well. He should be viewed as a solid RB2 heading into a Week 5 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Josh Jacobs Should Remain Involved In Week 4

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs saw 18 touches during their last contest. He finished with 66 yards on the ground and 31 yards through the air in the loss to the Tennessee Titans. The assumption is that Jacobs will continue being involved in the passing attack this week. The Denver Broncos have a fairly strong rush defense, which means the Raiders are going to be forced to shake it up. That being said, Jacobs could have increased fantasy value in PPR formats this week. At worst, Jacobs should be a low-end RB2 for this upcoming matchup.

  • Josh Jacobs Receives 18 Touches In Week 3

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs rushed 13 times for 66 yards while catching five passes for 31 yards in a Week 3 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The efficiency was once again on display for Jacobs but overall the offense was unable to get it going. Jacobs has now gone the first three games of the season without finding the end zone, which is not a good sign for his fantasy value. The positive from this game was his involvement in the passing game, with five catches on six targets providing a nice floor. Jacobs continues to be a volume play in fantasy, but until he starts to find the end zone, he will be capped at a low-end RB2 play each week.

  • Josh Jacobs Will Play In Week 3

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness) will play in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans after being listed as questionable on Friday's final injury report. Jacobs flew private to Tennessee on Saturday and has recovered from an illness that kept him out of practice on Thursday and Friday. He worked out Sunday morning and was deemed good to go. It's a huge boost for the Raiders offense as they attempt to win their first game of the young season. There's a chance that Jacobs won't see as big of a workload as he has the first two weeks -- he played 72 percent of the offensive snaps in Week 2 -- but at worse he should be viewed as an RB3/flex against the Titans now that he'll be active.

  • Josh Jacobs Will Work Out Pregame

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness) will work out pregame prior to Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Tennessee Titans. Jacobs traveled with the team despite missing time with an illness this week. It sounds like there's a decent chance that Jacobs does get on the field for Sunday's contest. The Raiders would be forced to use a committee approach with Zamir White, Brandon Bolden, and Ameer Abdullah, assuming Jacobs is out. This appears to be a true game time decision for Jacobs.

  • Josh Jacobs To Travel To Tennessee

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness) will travel to Tennessee but is still questionable to play in a Week 3 matchup with the Titans. Jacobs did not practice on Thursday or Friday and did not travel with the team but is making the trip separately. Although this is definitely a good sign for fantasy managers, backup plans should be made in case Jacobs is ruled out ahead of this contest's 1 PM ET kickoff. If Jacobs is sidelined, expect backfield duties to be split amongst rookie Zamir White, Ameer Abdullah, and Brandon Bolden, with White being the most intriguing fantasy option as a low-end flex play.

  • Josh Jacobs Questionable, Not Traveling With Team

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness), who is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, did not travel with the team on Friday. Jacobs missed practice the last two days with an illness and is now firmly in doubt for Sunday's game against Tennessee. Fantasy managers that have the 24-year-old in their starting lineups need to have a backup plan in place. The good news is we'll know early on Sunday whether Jacobs will be active. If he ends up playing, Jacobs will be in play as an RB2 for fantasy managers. But if he's ruled out, expect some combination of Brandon Bolden (hamstring), Ameer Abdullah and rookie Zamir White to share backfield duties against the Titans. Bolden was inactive last week but is off the Week 3 injury report.

  • Josh Jacobs A Low-End RB2 In Week 3

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs will head into a matchup with the Tennessee Titans having failed to find the end zone this season. Those who drafted Jacobs expected him to be a player with touchdown upside in an upgraded offense. While that has yet to be the case, the volume continues to be encouraging. 20 touches are about all you can ask for from your RB2 in fantasy football. We can expect some offensive success from the Raiders against a Titans defense coming in on a short week. This type of workload will eventually turn into production and will keep Jacobs in the RB2 conversation for Week 3.

  • Josh Jacobs Logs 20 Touches In Week 2

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had 19 carries for 69 yards while adding one catch for 12 yards in the team's Week 2 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Jacobs ran well in the first half while seeing all the running back carries. While it wasn't the most efficient day overall as Jacobs did not find the end zone for the second straight week, it is encouraging to see that Jacobs is the clear leader of this backfield. With Brandon Bolden (hamstring) missing this game, the only other running back to see a touch was Ameer Abdullah with one catch. Jacobs will continue to be a volume play going forward as he looks for his first touchdown of the season in Week 3 against the Titans.
