Josh Jacobs Week 12 Outlook - Raiders at Cowboys

By Kyle Yates (FantasyPros), Wed, Nov 24th 2021, 7:23pm EST

Coming into the 2021 season, one of the seemingly locked-in guarantees of the year was that Jacobs was going to see a massive workload on the ground each and every week. There were questions about what his upside was due to his lack of involvement in the receiving game, but no one was concerned about his volume as a runner...but maybe we should have been? Jacobs hasn't carried the ball more than 16 times once in his 2021 campaign, which for comparison he had six such games in 2020. The silver lining here is that Jacobs is finally seeing plenty of work as a receiver in this Jon Gruden-less offense in Las Vegas, but even that is failing to result in significant production. Jacobs has 14 receptions over his last three games, but he's only averaging 45 Yards Per Reception over that time span. We can continue to roll out Jacobs as a low-end RB2 each and every week that we know isn't going to crush our lineups, but the upside just quite frankly isn't there. In a matchup against the Cowboys defense that's allowing the 7th-fewest fantasy points to opposing RBs, it's difficult to see how that changes here.
