Josh Jacobs rumbles for 85 total yards and two scores in Week 5 win

Josh Jacobs ran for 77 yards on 23 carries and caught two passes for eight yards in Sunday's victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

Surprisingly, this is only the second time in five games where Jacobs has received at least 20 carries. Jacobs has yet to top 100 yards on the ground in any game this season and has accumulated his touchdowns in bunches - scoring twice in Week 5 and three times in Week 1, for a total of five scores in five games played. He's struggled to find running lanes thus far, as seen by his 3.6 yards per carry this season, but he's a beast and will continue to get the lion share of the carries for the Raiders as long as he's healthy. The Raiders face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Night Football, where Jacobs will be an RB1 despite the Buccaneers' solid run defense.
