Josh Jacobs Week 18 Outlook - Chiefs at Raiders

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Jan 8th 2023, 12:05pm EST

The Raiders have no more meaningful games on the docket, so we may not see Jacobs in a 75% or higher snap role this week. Last week he played his lowest snap count since Week 8 (67%) with 21 touches and 95 total yards. Jacobs currently leads the NFL in rushing yards (1,608), and the closest competitor to steal the title would be Nick Chubb (1,448). Jacobs could get a limited workload this week, especially with it not taking much to put that crown out of Chubb's reach. Jacobs is still in play for large-field tournaments but won't make it on any of my single-entry or three-max builds. Jacobs is fourth in weighted opportunities, tenth in juke rate, and second in evaded tackles. Since Week 12, the Chiefs have been second in rushing success rate, 12th in EPA per rush, and 15th in explosive run rate allowed.
