Josh Jacobs (ankle) is 'confident" he can play on Sunday

Josh Jacobs suffered an ankle injury that limited him to just 10 touches in Week 12's matchup against the Falcons. Although the team has officially diagnosed him with an ankle sprain, per Ian Rapoport, Vic Tafur is reporting that the sophomore running back in "confident" in his ability to return to the field next week.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs hasn't missed a game yet this season and doesn't think he will after being pulled from Week 12's matchup with a sprained ankle. Players' wishes and teams' decisions don't always align though, so we'll keep an eye on Jacobs' ability to practice throughout this week to give us a better indication of his Week 13 availability.

Josh Jacobs suffered ankle sprain in blowout loss to Falcons

Josh Jacobs had his day cut short after just 10 touches and Ian Rapoport is reporting that the star running back has a sprained ankle, but it looked worse than it actually is.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs will have some testing done on the ankle Monday morning to check out the severity, but hopes are that the sophomore running back will be able to keep his active game streak alive this year. He has failed to miss a single game this season after being sidelined in three last year. The Raiders play the Jets next Sunday and if Jacobs is unable to play, expect to see an uptick in usage for Devontae Booker and Jalen Richard.

Josh Jacobs limited to just seven carries in blowout loss to Falcons

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs rushed seven times for 27 yards and caught three passes for another 17 yards in the Raiders' 43-6 loss to the Falcons in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs received a season-low seven carries with the game out of hand early. The Raiders' offensive line did not hold up well traveling to Atlanta - failing to generate much running room for Jacobs when he actually had a chance. His longest carry went for 16 yards, but he was otherwise bottled up for much of the day. He'll have an appealing matchup against the Jets in Week 13, and fantasy managers should feel confident that the Jacobs will deliver in the clutch.

Josh Jacobs (hip) added to injury report Thursday as a limited participant

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) was added to the injury report on Thursday and practiced in a limited capacity.

Fantasy Impact

No further word on how serious the hip injury is for Jacobs, but keep an eye on the practice report on Friday. He should still be good to go for Week 12 in a favorable matchup against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs added one catch for nine yards as well. He played on 75% of the snaps against the Chiefs and has now scored four touchdowns in his last three games. Jacobs should be considered a high-end RB1 in Week 12 when the Raiders travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons.
