Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (toe, ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Dolphins. That leaves Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber in Vegas’ backfield again. Drake played 71% of the offensive snaps last week, tallying 7 carries and 6 targets. He’s a RB2 in PPR leagues; a RB3 or flex in non-PPR.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (toe, ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. It’ll be Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber in Vegas’ backfield again. Drake played 71% of the offensive snaps last week but was out-carried 13 to 7 by Barber. Drake racked up 6 targets, though, and is a borderline RB2 for Week 3.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (toe, ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Jon Gruden already called Jacobs "very questionable" for this weekend's game against the Dolphins, so fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him. With Jacobs out last week, RB Kenyan Drake garnered 7 carries and 6 targets vs. Peyton Barber's 13 carries and 0 targets.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden said Monday that RB Josh Jacobs is "very questionable" for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Jacobs missed Week 2 with toe and ankle injuries, and his coach doesn't sound optimistic or Week 3, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That would leave the Vegas backfield to Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber once again. Drake dominated the playing time at Pittsburgh, 71% to 29%, but each RB drew 13 opportunities. We'd still bet on Drake over Barber in Week 3 if you're making that decision. And we'll certainly be watching Jacobs' status this week.

The Raiders have ruled RB Josh Jacobs out for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. Jacobs is dealing with toe and ankle injuries, with the toe a holdover from Week 1. His absence makes Kenyan Drake a solid fantasy option against a Steelers defense that allowed 72 rushing yards to Devin Singletary on just 11 carries in the opener. Peyton Barber will be Vegas' #2 RB on Sunday.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (toe, ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He played through the toe issue last week, but the ankle injury is new. Jacobs seems to be in real danger of missing Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, which would leave Kenyan Drake as Vegas' lead back. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with toe and ankle issues. Jacobs played through the toe problem on Monday night, but the ankle issue is new. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow. Backup RB Kenyan Drake needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is active for tonight's game against the Ravens. He was limited in practice all week with a toe issue and then added back to the injury report with an illness on Saturday. We haven't heard that Jacobs will be limited tonight, though, so he seems safe to use as you were originally planning.

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness) is “on track” to play tonight vs. Baltimore. We’ll share Jacobs’ official game status once inactives are released in a couple of hours.

The Raiders have downgraded RB Josh Jacobs to questionable for Monday night's game against the Ravens because of an illness. It's not clear what the illness is. If it were COVID-related, though, Jacobs would have already been ruled out. We'll check on his status Monday evening. Kenyan Drake would start in his place, with Peyton Barber looking like the #2 back. On the Ravens side, Ty'Son Williams, Latavius Murray and Le'Veon Bell stand as potential replacements if Jacobs is out and you're suddenly hard up.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (toe) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. We'll keep an eye on the toe issue but are expecting Jacobs to be ready for his usual role on Monday night vs. the Ravens.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs was limited in Thursday's practice with a toe issue. It's the 1st we've heard of it. Jacobs should be available for Monday night's game vs. the Ravens, but stayed tuned to Shark Bites for updates.

Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur writes that RB Josh Jacobs looks “tougher and faster this camp.” It’s worth noting that Jacobs — entering his 3rd season — is only 23. Tafur also described Kenyan Drake as someone who’ll be "moved around on third downs and in the red zone.” No surprise there. Both RBs are viable picks at ADP, but it’s clear that Drake’s presence will limit Jacobs’ fantasy ceiling.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs was arrested for DUI in Vegas early Monday morning, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez. Jacobs was brought to a hospital for minor injuries after police responded to his 1-car crash. Jacobs' lawyers released a statement saying their client will plead not guilty. "No complaint has been filed against our client and there are no blood test results to support a suggestion of impairment," the statement reads. "We intend to enter a not guilty plea on behalf of Mr. Jacobs if he is ever charged." We'll see where the situation goes this offseason.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) is "dressed out, running around, being active as part of" pregame warmups, according to insider Vincent Bonsignore. So Jacobs was trolling with his social media post? It now looks like Jacobs will play against the Colts, but you can look elsewhere if you want to play it safe.
