Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Jacobs had his best performance since Week 1 last week, as he popped off against the Broncos for 100-plus yards and two touchdowns. That said, he's still averaging just 15.8 points per game, and his median performance (12.9) is even worse. He has flashed upside only when the Raiders get out to a big lead, and I don't think they'll do that against the Chiefs this week, as Andy Reid-coached teams always play well off a bye (and most of the Raiders' defensive starters were held out of practice due to COVID-19 concerns). He's still an RB1 for me, but I have him ranked lower than some other experts. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's been trending up over the last three weeks, finishing as a top-15 running back in each game. He's racked up over 300 yards and three touchdowns the last three games, and that includes a game where the Raiders even let Devontae Booker have his way with the Broncos over the second half. Even better news is that Jacobs ran 17 pass routes, his highest since way back in Week 4 while Jalen Richard ran just three of them in Week 10. We know the Chiefs don't allow a whole lot of fantasy production to their opponents (eighth-fewest overall), but running backs account for a lot of the production they do allow, as they've scored 38.0 percent of the fantasy points allowed to skill-position players, which ranks as the third-highest number in the league. Against pass-catching running backs, the Chiefs rank as the fourth-worst team in the league, according to Football Outsiders' DVOA. Against the run in general, they rank as the third-worst team. Those metrics take into consideration the competition they've played and the production they've allowed. As a whole, running backs have scored 11.9 percent more fantasy points against the Chiefs than they do on average. Jacobs fits into that role, too, as he racked up 85 total yards and two touchdowns against them back in Week 5. There have been just six running backs who've totaled more than 14 touches against the Chiefs, and every single one of them finished with at least 100 total yards and/or a touchdown. Jacobs should be in lineups as an RB1 this week.He's averaging just 3.67 yards per carry and has caught just 15 balls for 79 yards though nine weeks but went into his bye week as the No. 6 running back. That's because he ranked second in the NFL with nine rushing touchdowns. Running backs have averaged 5.4 fewer fantasy points against the Saints than they do versus their season average, which is the biggest gap in the league. When you look at the fantasy points the Saints have allowed to running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, the running backs have only accounted for 26.1 percent of that production, which ranks as the second-lowest mark in the league. So, when you see they've allowed just 18.5 PPR points per game to running backs, it makes sense. That's the second-lowest number in the league, behind only the Steelers. They've allowed just three rushing touchdowns on the season, or one every 59.3 carries, which is the highest number in the league. The 8.37 points per game they allow on the ground ranks as the second-lowest mark in the NFL behind only the Falcons. That's big because Gurley has caught more than two passes just twice all season and hasn't topped 29 receiving yards. Even when you factor in the weighted expectation of fantasy points from targets, the Saints are the No. 1 run defense in the league from a points per opportunity standpoint. Gurley is looking like a touchdown-or-bust option in a matchup that has only generated a touchdown in 33 percent of the Saints games, including none in their last five games. He's a high-variance RB2 this week with a low ceiling who shouldn't be considered in cash games.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jacobs had 21.5 fantasy points the last time the Raiders played the Chiefs, he should be a great RB1 option at home.The Saints allow the fewest points to fantasy running backs, Gurley is more of a RB2 on the road this week in a tough matchup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Gurley has been unable to surpass 2.79 YPC over his last four games. For a starting NFL RB, that's absolutely atrocious and it's even more surprising when you factor in that he played Minnesota, Detroit, and Carolina in that time frame. This legitimately may be the final year that we see Gurley in the NFL due to his production and the fact that his knee issue seems to be flaring up. He always has a chance to find the end zone, but it's going to be tough sledding in this matchup against the Saints defense. Gurley should be viewed as a touchdown-dependent RB2 this week.
