Don't worry much about Jacobs' lackluster performance in Week 2 against the Saints, as we already knew it was going to be a tough one. Instead, be excited that this offense is putting points up on the board. Scoring 34 points in each of the first two games is a massive accomplishment for this team that didn't score more than 31 points in any game last year. That was legitimately the only thing I was concerned about with Jacobs coming into the season; his upside in what's been a low-scoring offense. Oddsmakers don't see that continuing this week, as the Raiders are projected for just 20.8 points against the Patriots. This isn't a great matchup, but it's much better than it was last year when the Patriots allowed just 76.1 rushing yards per game and allowed one rushing touchdown the entire season. Through two games in 2020, they've allowed 184 rushing yards and a touchdown to the combination of Dolphins and Seahawks running backs. Chris Carson was the only one who totaled more than 13 touches, and he wound up with 19.8 PPR points. The lone concern with Jacobs is his usage in the pass game. It appeared great in Week 1 when he saw a career-high six targets, but then we went back to just three targets in Week 2, reminiscent of his 2019 season. When the Raiders are six-point underdogs, that's a legitimate concern, though this is where I tell you he ran 17 pass routes in Monday's game, which was nearly double of that of Jalen Richard (10). Jacobs should continue to be trotted out as a low-end RB1 with a stable floor.After missing the game last Sunday, Godwin was cleared in the concussion protocol on Monday, so he's good to go. He'll return to a matchup with undrafted rookie Essang Bassey. Through two games, he's seen six targets and none of them have hit the ground. They've only gone for 45 yards, as teams haven't felt the need to push the ball downfield against this defense. The Bucs can really pick their poison this week this week, as Evans' cornerback matchup is just as good as Godwin's. But going by the fact that the Broncos have allowed just 11.2 yards per reception is an indicator that Godwin's role may be more valuable. You're starting both of them, obviously, so the hope is that they use this game to boost the confidence of Brady and his receivers, and that they both can produce top-20 numbers.

Jacobs was a monster in week one, but that can be chalked up to the matchup against the Panthers run defense. He had a much tougher matchup this week against the Saints, but he still had a great day on the ground. He looked explosive and was consistently picking up chunk gains. He wasn't able to find the end zone, but fantasy managers should be encouraged by the fact that he saw 30 total touches in week two. Moving forward, he has a decent matchup here against the Patriots and he should see enough work to be in the RB1 conversation yet again. As long as he's fully healthy, Jacobs deserves to be started.Godwin missed last week due to still being in the concussion protocol, but all signs point to him being active for this game. If he does indeed suit up, he belongs in the top-10 conversation this week in a matchup where he'll line up across from Essang Bassey. Godwin has the upper hand in that matchup and could be in line for a big day. Fire up Godwin as a locked-and-loaded WR1 in this game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Patriots are just 16th against fantasy running backs, but Jacobs already has 52 carries on the season. He will have to work for his yardage, but he should be a solid RB1.Players coming off concussions scare me a little in fantasy, but Denver is 28th against fantasy receivers. Seeing Godwin is already practicing, I am good with ranking him as a mid-range WR2.
