Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is only one of two running backs that has forced at least 50 missed tackles in each of the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has rushed for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons in the NFL and has 19 touchdowns during that span. He will continue to see plenty of work in the Raiders offense and will be a weekly starting option in all leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' 3.9 yards per carry and three runs of 20-plus yards were both the fewest among the eight backs who reached 1,000 rushing yards in 2020.
Huddle Up: The good news for fantasy owners is that Jacobs' inefficiency was offset by 273 carries, the third most in the league, and 12 rushing scores. The volume alone should make him a high-floor RB2 heading into next season.

Updating a previous report, Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs was charged with failure to exercise due care in his single-car accident on Jan. 4. It had previously been reported by multiple sources that Jacobs was charged and arrested for driving under the influence.
Huddle Up: It's good news for Jacobs in terms of potentially avoiding a suspension to begin 2021, although there's no guarantee of that considering the police officer who responded to the crash scene reported observing "a moderate odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage coming from Jacobs as he spoke." Speaking strictly from a fantasy perspective, Jacobs will enter 2021 drafts as a solid RB2 option.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Jacobs had a solid bounce back game last week after a few disappointing performances and should see plenty of touches this week. He can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has been a full participant each of the last two days and should be good to go Saturday against the Miami Dolphins. He'll be a low-end RB1 in a tough matchup but has enough volume to return value.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs carried the ball 26 times for 76 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15. Jacobs also gained 38 yards on three receptions.
Huddle Up: The Raiders weren't shy about using Jacobs, whose 29 touches included a lot of runs into a loaded box. He went over the top for a touchdown in the third quarter but was denied twice in overtime before the Raiders settled for a field goal. He got nicked up during the game but returned and will now have a few extra days to get healthy before taking on the Dolphins. Jacobs should be a solid RB2.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16, but he doesn't carry an injury designation into the game Thursday, Dec. 17, against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Jacobs ended up playing as a game-time decision in Week 14, and he totaled 74 yards on 16 touches. He has seemed to be much healthier this week and will need to be in lineups as a low-end RB1.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) was limited during practice Monday, Dec. 14. The Raiders did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Jacobs returned to the lineup next week and should be available again this week. He has been held to under 50 yards rushing in each of the last two games but has received at least 10 carries in all but one game this season. He can still be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) ran for 49 yards on 13 carries and caught three of his five targets for 25 yards in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: It was a bad day for Jacobs in more ways than one, at least from a fantasy perspective. He posted on social media earlier in the day that he was "not playing today" before going through his pregame routine and ultimately handling his usual workload - simultaneously infuriating owners who benched him for a lesser option and those who hoped for more production. Jacobs will have three days to get his ankle feeling better, but a Week 15 meeting against the Los Angeles Chargers should allow him to be a solid RB2 play.
