Josh Jacobs Likely To Play Monday NightSeptember 13, 2021 | 01:35 PM
Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (illness) is on track to play Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens. The 23-year-old was listed as questionable to play prior to game day and was a limited participant at practice for much of the week. Leading up to kickoff, his status will be something monitor. If he is to play, fantasy managers should likely temper their expectations in a tough matchup that will likely cause a negative game script for running backs. Kenyan Drake could see an increased workload and figures to be the primary option in passing down situations, meaning Jacobs is no more than a FLEX option for Week 1. The third-year running back will likely need to score a touchdown to salvage a potentially light workload.
