With Tyreek Hill out at least a month and possibly more, Watkins is locked into the number one receiver role in Kansas City. Last Sunday, Watkins turned his targets from Patrick Mahomes into nine catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns, so suffice it to say he has a lot of upside. The Raiders are already dealing with injuries in their secondary, and they weren't the most fearsome matchup to begin with. Watkins is a legit top-10 wideout this week.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.

Watkins will be the top wide receiver with WR Tyreek Hill out this week, Watkins should be able to build on his great game last week against a bad Raiders secondary.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.
Mike Tagliere

 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.
