Josh Jacobs bounces back in Thanksgiving win

Josh Jacobs accumulated 112 total yards on 24 touches on Thursday, scoring a touchdown and catching two passes in the process.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs remained the workhorse back for Las Vegas, not only as a runner, but as a receiver as well. He gets a decent matchup against Washington next week and should be fired up as a mid-ranged RB2 moving forward based on his expected volume alone.

Josh Jacobs struggles on the ground in loss

Josh Jacobs saw just nine carries for 37 yards on Sunday, but thankfully salvaged some of his fantasy day with five receptions for 24 yards.

Fantasy Impact

It makes it a total of 61 yards for Jacobs, who is now fully locked into that three-down role within this Raiders offense. It certainly helps his weekly floor and makes him a more trustable option even in less favorable matchups.

Josh Jacobs sees just seven carries, salvages work in receiving game

Josh Jacobs totalled just 36 yards on his 11 touches Sunday night, with five of those 11 coming in the receiving game.

Fantasy Impact

In what became a negative game script for the Raiders, Jacobs didn't see a ton of work on the ground. Thankfully, his growing role in the passing game salvaged his fantasy performance from being an absolute dud, at least in PPR leagues. He gets a solid matchup against the Bengals next week, although the Raiders will be going up against a very similar offense as Kansas City's and could face some negative game script once again.

Josh Jacobs returns to full workload in loss

Josh Jacobs saw 17 touches on Sunday, totalling 95 yards with four receptions.

Fantasy Impact

After Jacobs left Week 7's matchup early, he returned from the bye practicing in normal capacity and in turn saw his normal workload on Sunday. It's an encouraging sight for fantasy managers, as his increased participation in the passing game makes for a solid floor for fantasy purposes. Jacobs will get a great matchup in Week 10 when he takes on the Chiefs, although game script will also play a factor in how often Jacobs sees the field.

Josh Jacobs (chest) practicing Wednesday

Raiders running back Josh Jacobs missed the end of the team's Week 7 contest with a chest injury, but coming out of the bye he has returned to practice.

Fantasy Impact

The initial report was that Jacobs avoided any serious injury so him returning to practice on Wednesday certainly supports that idea even further. Assuming Jacobs gets in a full practice by the end of the week, he should still be locked into the lead-back role even with the recent emergence of teammate Kenyan Drake.
