Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Avoids DUI charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs won't be charged with a DUI following a Jan. 4 arrest related to a single vehicle collision in Las Vegas, Nev., Glenn Puit of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Jacobs' legal woes aren't over, though, as he faces a misdemeanor count of failure to decrease speed or use due care under certain circumstances. Once the legal process works itself out -- he has a March court date on the docket -- the NFL could levy a punishment if he was deemed to violate the personal conduct policy. On the field this past season, Jacobs accounted for 1,303 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns on 273 carries and 33 catches (45 targets) in 15 games.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Arrested on DUI charge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs was arrested Monday on a DUI charge relating to a single vehicle collision, Kevin Bolinger of FOX 5 Vegas reports.

Jacobs was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated after the vehicular collision, per Bolinger. The second-year pro has since been released from both custody and the hospital, and he's been assigned with a March court appearance date. Based on the NFL's precedent of assigning punishments for DUI arrests, it's possible that Jacobs could face a short suspension during the 2021 season. He had 273 carries for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns through 15 games in 2020, while also securing 33 of 45 targets for 238 yards.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Scores twice in Week 17 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs carried the ball 15 times for 89 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos. He failed to catch his only target.

After gashing Denver for two TDs in their first meeting in Week 10, Jacobs repeated the feat in the season finale. The second-year back finished the campaign with 1,065 rushing yards and a career-high 12 touchdowns, but he dealt with nagging injuries once again and has yet to play a full 16-game schedule. Jacobs will head into 2021 at the top of the Raiders backfield depth chart.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Held scoreless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs totaled 69 yards on 13 carries during Saturday's 26-25 loss to the Dolphins.

Jacobs took an IV on Saturday, as he was not feeling well going into the game, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. Jacobs had an opportunity to punch in a game-winning touchdown with two overtime carries inside the five-yard line during a Week 15 loss to the Chargers. Again against Miami, the 22-year-old came up short in a pair of short-yardage situations. A Jacobs first-quarter goal-line carry landed Las Vegas a yard short of a touchdown before Derek Carr scored on a QB sneak the following play. Meanwhile, a 4th-and-1 plunge from Las Vegas' own 47 with 8:36 to go in the third quarter lost one yard. Making matters worse, Jacobs appeared to purposely go down short of the goal line twice as the Raiders were playing for time and a field goal late in the fourth quarter vs. going for a touchdown. Even so, Jacobs' opportunities remain ample as the powerful back has garnered 13-plus carries in seven of his past eight outings heading into a Week 17 road trip to Denver.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Powers through hefty workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs rushed 26 times for 76 yards and a touchdown and secured all three targets for 38 yards in the Raiders' 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers on Thursday night.

Jacobs not only came into the critical divisional clash for the Raiders dealing with a nagging ankle issue, but he exited the game late in the fourth quarter to have his knee tended to. However, the second-year lead back quickly returned on the fourth play of Las Vegas' overtime-opening possession, logging six touches on a drive that culminated in a Daniel Carlson field goal. Jacobs' game-tying one-yard scoring leap in the third quarter served as his 10th touchdown of the season, while his yardage tally Thursday was his highest since Week 10 against the Broncos. He'll look to continue producing in a Week 16 battle versus the Dolphins on Saturday night, Dec. 26.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (knee) has returned to Thursday's game against the Chargers, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Jacobs barely spent any time on the sideline, as he retook the field in the middle of Las Vegas' first drive of overtime. With the Raiders still fighting for a tentative playoff spot and in a must-win scenario, and Derek Carr (groin) already out, Jacobs' return to the field will no doubt be invaluable.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Injures knee Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (knee) is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Chargers.

Jacobs left late in the fourth quarter and isn't on the field to begin overtime. The second-year pro was previously managing an ankle issue, and now he's dealing with a knee injury in addition to that. Devontae Booker stands to see added work out of the Raiders' backfield if Jacobs can't return.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Cleared to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Chargers, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Jacobs approached Week 14 action listed as questionable, but he suited up and played 29 of the Raiders' 68 offensive snaps in the team's loss to the Colts, carrying 13 times for 49 yards and catching three of his five targets for 25 yards in the process. Though he was listed as a limited practice participant this week, Jacobs has been cleared to play Thursday and will once again head the Raiders backfield against a Chargers defense that has allowed an average of 120 rushing yards per game.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Limited practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) was limited at Tuesday's practice.

For a second consecutive day, the Raiders listed Jacobs as limited, only this time they held him out of practice. The team seems to be managing his reps with a short turnaround between games, but Wednesday's injury report may still leave the running back as a question mark for Thursday's game versus the Chargers. While Jacobs played through his ankle issue this past Sunday against the Colts, he logged a season-low share of the offensive snaps (43 percent) en route to 16 touches for 74 yards from scrimmage and no TDs.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Estimated as limited Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) was listed as limited on Monday's practice estimate.

It's not a surprise to see Jacobs' name on the Raiders' initial Week 15 injury/practice report. The running back headed into Week 14 action listed as questionable, but he was able to suit up and log 29 (of a possible 68) snaps on offense in Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Colts. In the process, Jacobs carried 13 times for 49 yards and caught three of his five targets for 25 yards. Fantasy managers can't take anything for granted with Jacobs these days, but we suspect that he'll be available for this coming Thursday's game against the Chargers.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Held in check vs. Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) carried 13 times for 49 yards and caught three of five targets for 25 yards during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Colts.

Jacobs, who came into the game nursing a nagging injury, managed just 3.8 yards per carry against a tough Indianapolis front. His rushing attempts were limited by a lopsided score, and he failed to make a notable impact in the passing game despite receiving his most targets since Week 1. Assuming Jacobs didn't aggravate the injury, he'll look to get back on track Thursday against an inconsistent Chargers defensive unit.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Draws the start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) started at running back for the Raiders in Sunday's game against the Colts, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

A pre-game Instagram post by the running back suggesting that he wasn't playing Sunday caused a stir in the fantasy community, but once Jacobs began participating in warmups, it became apparent that he'd been joking and was in line to play, as had been previously implied by his active status for the contest.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Appears in line to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adam Schefter of ESPN relays that Jacobs (ankle) is going through pre-game warmups in advance of Sunday's game against the Colts.

Schefter previously relayed that Jacobs indicated on Instagram that he wasn't playing Sunday despite being listed as active, but now Schefter suggests that Jacobs "appears to have been joking with the fantasy community." If that assessment changes, we'll update the situation.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Jacobs was considered questionable after practicing as a limited participant Thursday and Friday, but he's all set to play Week 14. The 22-year-old had only seven carries for 27 yards and three catches for 17 yards Week 12 and sat out last week's loss to the Falcons with the ankle injury. He gets a tough draw Sunday against a Colts run defense that's allowing 3.8 yards per carry.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Should face Indianapolis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle), who is listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The second-year tailback received the questionable tag after practicing in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday, and he's on track to suit up Sunday. Jacobs sat out last week's win over the Jets after he sustained the ankle sprain Week 12, but it appears his absence will be limited to a single game.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Listed as questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts after logging limited practices both Thursday and Friday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com

Jacobs sat out Wednesday's session, but the fact that he practiced Thursday and Friday -- albeit in a limited capacity -- would seem to bode well for his Week 14 availability. Final confirmation of the running back's status will arrive once the Raiders inactives are released in advance of Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) returned to a limited practice Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

It remains to be seen how the Raiders list Jacobs for Sunday's game against the Colts, but his return to the field Thursday, albeit in a limited capacity, suggests that the running back has a chance to return to action this weekend. If that doesn't happen, however, Devontae Booker would be in line to lead the team's backfield again, with Jalen Richard and Theo Riddick on hand to work in complementary/change-of-pace roles.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Misses Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Earlier this week, coach Jon Gruden was pessimistic about Jacobs' chances of suiting up Sunday against the Colts, and not much seems to have changed on that front. If Jacobs is forced to miss a second consecutive game this weekend, Devontae Booker would be in line to headline Las Vegas' backfield again, with Jalen Richard and Theo Riddick also on hand to provide support.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Looking unlikely for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Gruden said Monday that he doesn't have much confidence that Jacobs (ankle) will be available for Sunday's game against the Colts, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Jacobs didn't practice at all before being ruled out for last weekend's narrow win over the Jets, and it looks like he could be trending toward a two-game absence due to an ankle sprain. Devontae Booker was ineffective in the lead role versus New York, but he could get another chance to handle a notable workload against Indianapolis' stout defensive front.

Raiders' Josh Jacobs: Could play Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jacobs (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Jets, but the Raiders are hopeful the running back can return in Week 14, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It's a bit of an optimistic tone considering the running back didn't practice all week. Of course, the Raiders would like to have their star running back healthy as the team pushes for a playoff spot, but the tone of Saturday's latest report seems to suggest it'll once again come down to Jacobs' practice status later next week. For now, expect Devontae Booker to get the bulk of the carries in Jacobs' absence.
