Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
With Josh Jacobs ruled out for Week 2, you can confidently deploy Drake as a mid-range RB3/flex option, even in a tough matchup. Pittsburgh's defense is no joke, but Drake's pass-catching prowess (5/59 in Week 1) should prop up his production in this one. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kenyan Drake was utilized just as we expected in week one and he saw five targets out of the backfield to Jacobs' two. While this certainly wasn't enough work to vault him into the start-worthy consideration for Standard or even Half PPR formats, he does have some appeal as a FLEX option in Full PPR formats. In this game against Pittsburgh, the Raiders are probably going to struggle to move the ball on the ground, which means we could see Drake back involved heavily as a receiver. However, don't view him as anything more than a FLEX play in Full PPR formats. There's very little upside with him in this offense. UPDATE: Josh Jacobs has been ruled out for this matchup. Drake moves up into mid-range RB3 territory due to opportunity, however this is still a tough matchup for opposing RBs.Carlos Hyde received the majority of the workload on the ground in week one, but we simply can't trust him for fantasy football with the current state of this offense. Urban Meyer doesn't seem to have a full understanding of how to run a NFL franchise and it's showing in his usage of these RBs. Hyde can be picked up in leagues if you're desperate for a healthy RB, but otherwise we shouldn't be looking his direction.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Give Josh Jacobs credit for gutting it out through toe and ankle injuries in Week 1. He managed to pay off with a pair of short touchdowns, but he clearly wasn't 100%, and he wasn't practicing as of Wednesday. If he plays, he should be considered a high-end RB3 at best. Drake, who was ineffective in the running game (6-11-0) but effective in the passing game (5-59-0 on five targets), could be a sneaky volume play if Jacobs winds up missing Week 2.I know a few Robinson investors who were nervous that Urban Meyer was going to use Carlos Hyde more than he should, and that's sort of what happened here. Hyde seemed to be Urb's preferred early-down guy, logging nine carries to Robinson's five. Robinson was used in more of a passing-down role. He out-snapped Hyde 47-25. But was that simply because the game script was negative for the Jaguars throughout? Will it be closer to a 50/50 workload split if the Jags are in a close game and don't attempt 51 passes like they did in the blowout loss to the Texans? I now share the concerns of those Robinson investors. I have J-Rob squarely in RB3 territory this week against a tough Denver D. Hyde isn't far behind him, in high-end RB4 territory.
