We talked about Jacobs' matchup last week and how it was tougher than most expected, but for him to total just 10 touches was something no one could've predicted. He hurt his ankle late in the third quarter, which knocked him out of the game, but he was mostly inefficient in that game. He will likely be questionable for this game, so pay attention to his status throughout the week. He now has 206 carries on the season, but just four of those carries have gone for 15-plus yards, so you kind of need him to get that high volume. Fortunately, he gets the Jets this week, who've allowed the fifth-most touches per game (29.4) to running backs. The downside is that they've allowed just 1.16 yards before contact to ball carriers, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in the league. We talked about it being necessary for Jacobs to get some of the passing game work last week, and though that didn't really happen, it helps to know the Jets have watched running backs get targeted 21.9 percent of the time against them, which is tied for the fourth-highest mark in the league. All in all, the Jets have faced the second-most weighted opportunity to running backs this year, behind only the Texans. To see they've allowed the 10th-most fantasy points to them should be considered an accomplishment, as they've been the 11th-toughest matchup for running backs from an efficiency standpoint. But again, that volume has allowed nine running backs to finish with top-24 numbers against them. If he practices in full at some point, he should be considered a high-end RB2 this week. If he doesn't, this is likely to be more of a timeshare between him and Booker, downgrading him into mid-to-low-end RB2 territory. If Jacobs were to sit this game entirely, Booker could be played as a middling RB2 who should be locked into 15-plus touches, and maybe even 20 of them.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) did not participate in practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs was nicked up in Week 12, so this could be the team giving him some more time to heal before running him out on the practice field. Check back on Thursday and Friday to see Jacobs’ participation level heading into Week 13 against the Jets.
