 Jacobs (Q, shoulder) said he "plans" to play Sunday against the Jaguars.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Chubb - once a top-end RB1 - is now looking more like a strong RB2. He has only scored once in the past seven weeks, and he only has seven total receptions over the past five games. You're probably still starting him, but it isn't as automatic as it was earlier in the year.If Jacobs plays, he's a must start against a Jaguars run defense that has been absolutely demolished over the past several weeks. It's risky considering the possibility of re-aggravating his injury, but the upside is sky high. Consider him a back-end RB1.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Arizona is just 22nd against fantasy running backs, Chubb has a great matchup on the road this week. He is a low-end RB1 splitting touches with RB Kareem Hunt.Jacobs appears like he is going to play at home against a terrible Jags run defense, Jacobs has RB1 upside this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Even though they combined for 185 total yards in Week 14, it was a disappointment for fantasy owners, as Chubb failed to find the end zone, and Hunt ended the game with just 11 touches. The offense is sputtering right now as they piece together enough production to keep them in fantasy lineups. For as bad as the Cardinals have been on defense, they haven't allowed very much production on the ground. They've held opposing running backs to just 98.8 rushing yards per game, which is quite remarkable considering they've allowed over 311 passing yards per game. It's not due to their opponents going very pass-heavy, either, as the 58.7 percent pass-rate against them is right in the middle of the league. There is one important note, however. There have been just three running backs who totaled 20 carries against the Cardinals, and each of them finished with 102-plus rushing yards. Chubb has hit that carry mark in eight of the last 11 games. The rough part for Chubb is that he's scored just one touchdown over his last seven games, and he's caught just five passes over the last four games, which makes him a lot more gamescript-dependent than most running backs in the RB1 range. We talked about this last week, but Chubb has been outscored by Hunt in 4-of-5 games in PPR formats. You have to think Chubb's touchdowns catch up to his production at some point, though the fact that the Cardinals have allowed just seven rushing touchdowns to running backs this year clouds the likeliness. Chubb isn't someone to play in cash games, but he does make plenty of sense in tournaments. You're playing him as a low-end RB1 in redraft leagues.
