Expert 
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
After a phenomenal Week 1 performance, Josh Jacobs has cooled off substantially. His median points per game sits at just 12, as the Las Vegas Raider has posted double-digit fantasy points just twice. This week isn't a great one for him to rebound, as the Raiders' offensive line has been in quarantine and not at practice. And since they'll now have to play one of the league's best defensive fronts, Jacobs is a must-fade in DFS, and you should consider benching him in redraft, too. 
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
TB has a very good rush defense and the O-line hasn't practiced all week 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jacobs has been receiving a ton of carries this season, and that should continue in this game, but it might be wise to pump the brakes on him just a bit this week. The Bucs are shutting down opposing RBs and it's hard to envision Jacobs having a big game this week. He's obviously still worth starting, but he should be viewed as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 here. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He led the league in carries coming into Week 6, though his 3.56 yards per carry isn't helping fantasy managers. Fortunately, he's averaging 3.0 receptions per game, which are providing a stable floor regardless of gamescript. Because of that, he's totaled at least 18 touches in every game. His weighted opportunity ranks fifth among running backs, behind only Ezekiel Elliott, Alvin Kamara, Derrick Henry, and Christian McCaffrey/Mike Davis. That's all fine and dandy, but the matchup he has on deck with the Bucs is a brutal one on the ground. They've allowed a minuscule 2.80 yards per carry on the year, which is even better than the league-low 3.02 yards per carry they allowed to running backs last year. They haven't allowed a running back to reach 60 yards on the ground against them this year, and that's despite playing against Aaron Jones, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Melvin Gordon. In fact, you'd have to go all the way back to Week 11 of last year to find the last running back who totaled more than 58 yards on the ground. That's an 11-game streak with sub-60 yards on the ground. There has been some success through the air this year, though. They've allowed 78.2 PPR points through the air to running backs, which ranks as the fifth-most in the league, and that's where you have to hope Jacobs makes his mark. You're still starting him as a low-end RB1/high-end RB2 with the massive volume he's gotten, but you don't want to attack him heavily in DFS this week. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Buccaneers are 10th against fantasy running backs and they have allowed only 14.9 fantasy points per game to running backs the last 3 weeks. Jacobs feels more like a RB2 at home in a very tough matchup.
