By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Jacobs remains the Raiders' bell cow, averaging 76% of the snaps played with 17.5 touches and 60 total yards. Despite the lockdown on work, it's been a tough start to the season for Jacobs. Jacobs has the third-highest stuff rate, ranks 24th in missed tackles per attempt, and has the eighth-lowest yards after contact per attempt. Jacobs can't escape all of the blame, but his offensive is part of the problem. Las Vegas has the eighth-lowest yards before contact per attempt. The Steelers' swiss cheese run defense could be the get-right elixir this week. Pittsburgh has surrendered the sixth-highest missed tackles allowed rate, the highest yards after contact per attempt, and the fourth-highest explosive run rate. Week 3 Positional Value: RB1
