Jacobs dominated backfield snaps and touches for the Raiders against Denver, and the end result was that he became the first rookie to amass 100+ yards and two touchdowns in his debut since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001. Pretty good company. Big picture, Jacobs is looking like a bell cow back for an offense that appears to be taking Antonio Brown's departure in stride. There is a bit of danger that he could lose some snaps to Jalen Richard if the Raiders fall behind the Chiefs, but Jacobs is too good to be flat-out benched no matter the score. He's an every week RB2.Week 1 provided confirmation that Fournette is set to serve as a true three-down back. He played 86 percent of the offensive snaps against Kansas City, while rookie Ryquell Armstead barely saw the field. Fournette's Week 1 stat line doesn't jump off the page, but he was highly involved in both the running and passing game, and should see more volume going forward with inexperienced rookie Gardner Minshew under center. The Texans allowed Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray to combine for 140 rushing yards on just 19 carries last week, so this isn't a matchup to run away from.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jacobs had an impressive Week 1 and he has another home game against one of the weaker run defenses in the NFL. He should be a low-end RB1 this week.The Texans allowed the 4th most points to fantasy running backs last week ,but Fournette is not the same player as Saints RB Alvin Kamara. Fournette should be a decent RB2 option on the road this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Raiders were telling us they wanted Jalen Richard involved in the passing-game just as much as last year but watching Jacobs net 24 touches to one for Richard, this looks more like a true workhorse scenario. Despite missing his starting left tackle, Leonard Fournette was able to total 94 yards on 17 touches last week against the Chiefs. They changed their defensive scheme this offseason, but they also lost talent to fit the new scheme. They were a defensive unit that allowed a league-high 4.96 yards per carry and also allowed a league-high 7.65 yards per target to running backs. So, essentially, the answer was to involve your running backs to get maximum efficiency. Knowing Jacobs had two fewer touches than Derek Carr had pass attempts, it's safe to say he's going to be a big part of this offense. He should be played as a low-end RB1 this week and is likely safe enough for cash games despite them being 7.5-point underdogs.
