Raiders HC Jon Gruden refused to guarantee that RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) will play against the Jaguars this weekend. "We’ll see what happens in the next couple days," Gruden said after Jacobs put in a limited practice on Wednesday. "It doesn’t mean he’s going to play, but I’m glad the reports are positive ... We’ll see what happens in the next 48 hours." RB DeAndre Washington, who handled 14 carries and 7 targets last week, needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues. He'll be a RB2 in a plus matchup vs. Jacksonville if Jacobs is out.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is expected to play this weekend after an MRI on his injured shoulder "checked out very positively," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's good timing for Jacobs, who will return to face a barely-there Jaguars run defense that's allowed a pathetic 6.3 yards per carry to RBs over the last 4 weeks.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. That leaves Oakland’s backfield to RBs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard — although HC Jon Gruden mentioned on Friday that FB Alec Ingold will also be involved. We’d try to avoid this situation, but we'd lean toward Washington if you’re forced to dabble.

The forecast for today's Ravens-Bills game calls for 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+. QBs Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen both do a lot of their fantasy damage on the ground, so neither guy is significantly hurt by the weather. We would slightly downgrade WRs John Brown and Marquise Brown with deep passes likely to be impacted.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs will be a "true" game-time decision for today's clash with the Titans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jacobs is trying to play through a broken shoulder plate. Jacobs has reportedly been playing through the issue since Week 7, but it limited him more than usual in practice this week. The 4:25 p.m. ET start for the game makes it a tough situation for fantasy football owners. If you plan to wait for Jacobs, then roster DeAndre Washington. He ranks a distant 2nd on the team in rushing attempts with just 48 for the season. Other potentially available late options include: Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels, Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson, Patriots RB Rex Burkhead and Rams RB Malcolm Brown. Check our Week 14 RB rankings to see if you're lucky enough to find a higher-ranking option available.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans. He’s been playing through this injury since Week 7 but only got in a limited practice on Friday. HC Jon Gruden said Jacobs “didn’t do much” in that practice and didn’t commit to the rookie playing vs. Tennessee. We’ll look for an update on the situation on Sunday morning. Jacobs’ absence would leave Oakland with RBs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard. Gruden also mentioned FB Alec Ingold as a candidate for carries. It’d be a situation to avoid in fantasy lineups.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (rib, lung) is out for Sunday’s game against the Titans. That’s good news for TE Darren Waller, who averaged just 5.3 targets in the 6 games Renfrow saw 5+ targets this season vs. 9.2 targets in the other 5 games.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We learned earlier this week that he fractured his shoulder back in Week 7. Jacobs has been playing through that injury, but it's possible that he re-aggravated it last week. At this point, the rookie's Week 14 status is up in the air. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs says he's been playing through a fractured right shoulder suffered in Week 7. "I just play on it," he wrote in a social media post. The rookie has been listed on the injury report every week since but hasn't missed a game. In fact, Jacobs has averaged an identical 18.2 carries per game both before and after the injury. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but Jacobs should remain in fantasy lineups until further notice.

Buccaneers EDGE Carl Nassib (illness) is active for today's game against the Jaguars after heading into the weekend questionable. He's fine for normal IDP usage.

The forecast for today's Raiders-Chiefs game calls for winds of 20-30 mph and gusts of 40+. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We wouldn't bench your usual Chiefs (Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce), but their ceilings might be capped a bit in the wind. Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Tyrell Williams are shaky fantasy plays today. Ditto for Ks Harrison Butker and Daniel Carlson.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (rib) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. The rookie averaged 5.8 targets over the last 4 games, so his absence is a nice boost for WR Tyrell Williams and TE Darren Waller.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow suffered a broken rib and punctured lung in Sunday's loss to the Jets, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It’s unclear at this point how long he’ll be out," Rapoport adds. We'd expect the rookie to miss multiple weeks with what sounds like a serious injury. Renfrow can be dropped in redraft leagues.

Raiders QB Derek Carr was replaced by QB Mike Glennon late in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets. There's been no injury announced for Carr, so this looks like HC Jon Gruden just getting his starting QB out of a 34-3 game. We'll update Carr's status if we hear otherwise.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow suffered a rib injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Jets and is questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Buccaneers EDGE Carl Nassib (groin) is active for today's game against the Falcons. It's an upside sack matchup, and he hit the weekend expected to return despite the "questionable" tag. Nassib makes for a solid IDP option this week.

The forecast for today's Broncos-Bills game calls for sustained winds of 20 mph with gusts over 25. Hopefully you're not too invested in these passing games, but the windy conditions downgrade guys like QB Josh Allen and WRs John Brown and Courtland Sutton.

Buccaners EDGE Carl Nassib (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Nassib progressed from limited early-week practices to a full workout Friday. That points to him likely playing in the upside sack matchup with Atlanta. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.

Update: ESPN's Jenna Laine reports that Nassib will play.

Raiders S Erik Harris is active for today's game against the Lions. He entered the day questionable because of illness but looks ready for normal IDP use.

The forecast for today's Redskins-Bills game calls for winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph. It won't be as windy as it was last week, but this is still enough to give slight bumps down to the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you were already avoiding Washington's passing game (including Terry McLaurin) in rookie QB Dwayne Haskins' 1st start. QB Josh Allen and WR John Brown remain fine plays on the Buffalo side. We'd try not to use either K in this game.
