Shark Bites

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. The rookie played through this injury last week, though, and HC Jon Gruden said that he expects Jacobs to play. Raiders-Texans is a 4:25 pm ET kickoff, so we’ll look for an update on Jacobs’ status Sunday morning. If he’s unable to play, we’d likely get a committee backfield with DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Chargers. It'll be his first action since Week 1. Jacobs remained limited in practice all week, and HC Jon Gruden hinted that RB Peyton Barber might still be heavily involved even with Jacobs back. We'll see how carries are distributed tonight, but it's a risky fantasy situation.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game vs. the Chargers. He was limited in practice all week. HC Jon Gruden suggested that Jacobs will be a game-time decision. That obviously puts fantasy owners in a tough spot with the late kickoff. Unless we get another update on Sunday morning, you can't have Jacobs or RB Peyton Barber in your starting lineup unless you own both guys.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) remained limited in Friday's practice. His status for Monday night's game vs. the Chargers is uncertain. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's no longer listed on the injury report with a toe issue. HC Jon Gruden was non-committal when asked about Jacobs' status for Monday night's game vs. the Chargers. "We'll see," Gruden said. "I'd say he's questionable at the moment." Gruden also said this of RB Peyton Barber: "Not going to hesitate to put him in a primary role, after what he did against the Dolphins." We'll see if Jacobs is ready for Monday night and then how Vegas divvies carries.

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.
