Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jacobs had a rough game last week. However, that was against a defense that is absolutely suffocating opposing RBs. Jacobs should get back to seeing his 15+ carries in this game against a Browns defense that is currently middle-of-the-pack in terms of fantasy points per game. Fire up Jacobs as a solid RB1 with upside in this matchup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He has just one run of 15-plus yards on a massive 116 carries, which is tied with Ezekiel Elliott and David Montgomery for the second-fewest among running backs with 75-plus carries. The only person who's failed to generate a 15-plus yard run is... Frank Gore. This is the company Jacobs has found himself in. No one is going to blame him for struggling against the Bucs, but this is hardly the first game he hasn't lived up to his draft cost. In fact, he's failed to top 3.7 yards per carry in 5-of-6 games this year, and he's failed to score a touchdown in 4-of-6 games. Now onto the Browns, who've been what we'd describe as an above-average run defense, though not one to run from like the Bucs. They've allowed just 3.71 yards per carry and have held all but one running back to 57 yards or less on the ground. Knowing that Jacobs hasn't topped three receptions or 25 receiving yards since Week 1, this is somewhat of a problem. Teams have only chosen to run the ball 35.9 percent of the time, which is the third-lowest percentage in the league. It's amounted to just 18.6 carries per game against them, so even though Jalen Richard and Devontae Booker are only stealing 5.3 carries per game away from him, that could be a big deal in this game if the averages hold true. Jacobs has run 96 routes through six games, which is just four behind Kareem Hunt (who's played seven games), so he's out there on the field. The 7.07 yards per target the Browns are allowing to running backs ranks as the third-highest mark in the NFL. And keep in mind last week was the first time Jacobs finished a game with fewer than 18 touches, so continue to trot him out there as a high-end RB2. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Browns are 14th against fantasy running backs, Jacobs should be a RB1 at home this week.
