Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Give Josh Jacobs credit for gutting it out through toe and ankle injuries in Week 1. He managed to pay off with a pair of short touchdowns, but he clearly wasn't 100%, and he wasn't practicing as of Wednesday. If he plays, he should be considered a high-end RB3 at best. Drake, who was ineffective in the running game (6-11-0) but effective in the passing game (5-59-0 on five targets), could be a sneaky volume play if Jacobs winds up missing Week 2. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kenyan Drake was utilized just as we expected in week one and he saw five targets out of the backfield to Jacobs' two. While this certainly wasn't enough work to vault him into the start-worthy consideration for Standard or even Half PPR formats, he does have some appeal as a FLEX option in Full PPR formats. In this game against Pittsburgh, the Raiders are probably going to struggle to move the ball on the ground, which means we could see Drake back involved heavily as a receiver. However, don't view him as anything more than a FLEX play in Full PPR formats. There's very little upside with him in this offense.
