Jacobs is still questionable for this week, making Drake a high-end flex option against a Dolphins team that is 29th against fantasy backs through 2 weeks. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Josh Jacobs listed as "very questionable" by Jon Gruden for this upcoming matchup, it seems like we're going to see the duo of Kenyan Drake and Barber out there again for the Raiders. Drake certainly has not been efficient on the ground this year so far and that's evidenced by his 1.5 YPC on 13 rush attempts. However, he's at least providing a safe floor for fantasy managers with his involvement in the receiving game. He now has 10 receptions for 105 yards on the season and he has some value in Full PPR formats because of it. With that being said, he's still not worth viewing as anything more than a mid-range RB3 in that format. There are other options you can turn to that carry more upside than Drake in this offense.Hardman was able to put together a solid fantasy day in week two, but this happened with Hill being barely involved in the offense. The targets will begin to funnel back towards Hill in future weeks, which makes Hardman an inconsistent option for fantasy lineups moving forward. He can be viewed as a low-end FLEX option.
