LV RB Josh Jacobs - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Denver Broncos
Josh Jacobs only had 13 carries last week against the Dolphins, despite running very effectively in a close game. It made zero sense for the Raiders to stop running the ball when they were doing it so well, but then, most of what the Raiders did in that game made very little sense. Jacobs is closing in on 1,000 yards and he has 10 touchdowns this season, so he should be motivated to finish the year.
The Broncos rank 29th in aFPA to opposing running backs, so the opportunity is there for Jacobs to go off. Hopefully, the Raiders choose to run him at his usual clip this week so he can catch 1,000 yards. Expect numbers more in line with the rest of his season this week, making him a solid RB1 in all league formats.
