Courtesy of Rich Hribar on Twitter, Henry is the first running back to rush for 140-plus yards in three straight games since Adrian Peterson in 2012. He just posted the first 100-yard game on the ground against the Colts under Matt Eberflus, and he did it with ease. Not only is the yardage there for him, but he's scored seven touchdowns over the last four games. The Raiders haven't been the best matchup for early-down running backs having allowed just 3.99 yards per carry and seven touchdowns through 12 games, though four of those touchdowns have come in the last four weeks. They can get worn down, though. There have been just four running backs who've totaled more than 12 carries against them. Here are the results of those running backs on the ground: Dalvin Cook 110/1, Melvin Gordon 108/1, Joe Mixon 86/1, and Carlos Hyde 83/0. They've had good results. Henry has topped that 12-carry mark in every game this year. He's also scored at least one touchdown in 10-of-12 games this year, so feel free to start him as the elite RB1 that he is.We talked about the win/loss splits with Jacobs last week and they continued in Week 13. For whatever reason, he is not used in the passing-game in games they fall behind. There was one play where Jacobs went out into the flat and was essentially doing jumping jacks to try and get Carr's attention, as he was uncovered. The Raiders are underdogs in this game, but it's a winnable one, so we shouldn't automatically assume the win/loss splits apply. The Titans had been a really good run defense under Mike Vrabel, though they've slipped a bit since Week 8. Over their last four games, they've allowed 414 yards on 96 carries (4.31 yards per carry) with five rushing touchdowns. Running backs have been targeted quite a bit against the Titans, as the 8.3 targets per game ranks as the second-most. There have been just seven running backs who've finished better than the RB24 against the Titans, which is not great odds, but it's possible that Jacobs is catching them at the right time. You're not considering sitting Jacobs, who's seen at least 17 touches in eight of the last nine games, so plug him in as a solid RB2 who has RB1 upside if he's used in the passing game.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Henry is averaging 165.3 rushing yards per game over the last three weeks, and he has five touchdowns in that span. He's become an absolute fantasy stud over the last month or so and should be one of the first names in your starting lineup.The lack of involvement that Jacobs sees in the passing game caps his upside a bit, but he's usually a lock for 15-20 carries, and he's very efficient with them with an average of 4.9 yards per attempt. Look for him to continue to be heavily involved in what should be a close game against the Titans.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Raiders are 21st against fantasy running backs, Henry should be an elite RB1 option on the road.The Titans are 20th against fantasy running backs, Jacobs has some RB2 appeal, but he is a dicey play on an offense that has gone south the last two weeks.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
In 30 career games played in September and October, Henry averages just 3.87 yards per carry. In 29 career games played in November, December and January, Henry averages 5.48 yards per carry, which is a 42 percent improvement in efficiency. While these three months make up only about half of the Titans RB's games, he has scored 72 percent of his touchdowns during these months. Whether this is by circumstance or not, it makes sense that a physical runner like Henry would be more effective in colder weather for a couple of reasons. First, it can be tougher to tackle and stop the run in the snow and cold weather overall. Second, the bruiser is facing defenses that may be broken down or depleted because of injury at this point in the season, which is a benefit to the more physical man and team. Anyways, November was another hot month for Henry. He has averaged at least 4.85 yards per carry in each game since the start of November, and he has totaled at least 149 rushing yards in each of the last three games. Aside from the high yardage output, Henry has also scored seven touchdowns in the last four games. He ranks as the top RB in average fantasy points over the past five weeks, at 26.4. Yes, even higher than Christian McCaffrey.
