Josh Jacobs News
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had a relatively quiet day for fantasy managers in a tough matchup on Sunday, carrying the ball 17 times for 45 yards, adding two catches for five yards through the air. He finished with less than 10 half-PPR fantasy points for just the second time in his last 10 games. The fourth-year running back will finish the season with 1,653 rushing yards, very likely enough for the NFL's rushing title this year. Jacobs will hope to cash in this offseason as a top free-agent RB after Las Vegas declined his fifth-year option this past April.

The Kansas City Chiefs come to town in Week 18 with a middle-of-the-road defense against opposing fantasy RBs. Jacobs is officially listed as questionable for this matchup after missing the past two practices for personal reasons. Unless the situation changes, expect Jacobs to play on Saturday and lock up the rushing title to cap off a career year. He is a must-start one final time.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs rushed for 872 yards on 217 attempts and nine touchdowns while catching 54 passes for 348 yards across 15 games in 2021. He failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career but set career highs in receiving categories. The 24-year-old finished as RB13 and among all fantasy backs last season. He will be the primary back and should be heavily featured in the red zone in a projected high-scoring offense. The Raiders added former Green...
